"I have had the pleasure of working with Robin Hrin as my personal trainer for 5 years. I have found that Robin is extremely knowledgeable of the function and benefit of all the exercises and stretching postures that are part of my workouts. She always makes sure that each session is a balanced workout of opposing muscle groups, and includes both strength and aerobic training in each session. Most of all Robin is a pleasure to work with, and I greatly enjoy our sessions. I highly recommend Robin as a personal trainer."

"Keith Barr is a wonderful person and a great track coach! He has been the Head Coach of the Rancocas Valley Track Club, which is a youth sports training program for kids as young as 5 years old, for many years now. The athletes love Coach Keith's easy going personality and the parents love his dedication to the program and to their kids. Keith is very positive, professional and encouraging to all participants. He welcomes athletes of all ages and ability levels and has consistently welcomed athletes with special needs. He has provided many young kids with the knowledge and early training they need to develop early motor skills and become familiar with the sport of track & field. As those athletes age and grow, they continue to get faster and stronger. For those who are older and ready for more serious training, he is very knowledgeable and demanding, yet understanding and encouraging and is able to cater to the individual needs of the athletes. The results speak for themselves as many of the RVTC athletes that Keith has coached have gone on to be track & field and cross country standouts at Rancocas Valley HS and/or college track programs.

"I have been working out with Peter for over 5 years. In that time he has helped me change my body, my strength, my flexibility and my understanding about body alignment. Our workouts are not all about how much I can sweat -- they are about what my body needs (be it cardio, strength training or stretching) and he has helped me to understand the importance of consistent movement --even on the days when working out feels hard. He follows up with me after workouts to see how I am feeling and he checks in during the week when we are not together. Peter goes the distance to ensure we get our time in each week -- even when the schedules get a little crazy. I feel I am in good hands with Pete. His energy and enthusiasm during our workouts make the time fly. "

"A few years ago, I was exceedingly skinny to the point that I (and my doctor) were getting concerned about my health. I have an absurdly fast metabolism, so just trying to eat a lot wasn't helping. A lot of people told me weightlifting could be the key to getting back into healthy shape. I'm not someone who likes to rush into things if I don't know what I'm doing and I hadn't stepped into a gym in my life, so I wasn't about to start repping heavy dead-lifts out by myself. I started training with Jake and it was actually life-changing. I only trained with him for about a year because I moved out of his area for college, but in that year I gained 30 pounds of muscle, learned the form for all staple lifts in a way that has set me on a so-far completely injury free workout journey, and learned to tackle my absurd dietary needs (4,000 calories a day bare minimum, usually closer to 6,000) in a healthy, sustainable way. Obviously, I also learned that Jake Porter is an awesome trainer because that was all thanks to him. He's a great, funny guy who teaches valuable workout lessons in a way that's easy to understand and remember and he encourages a discipline in his clients that will keep them in charge of their own health even years after their training with him has concluded."

"I hired mine to work with my 13 year old son who wanted to improve his strength, endurance, and power for the sport he plays. From day one mike has treated my son like family. He is always on time, workouts are always different and challenging to my son. The best sign of a review I can give is the fact that I have hired him for another set of sessions so my son can continue to benefit from his workouts. Mike even took time out of his personal schedule to attend one of my son's games. That is going above and beyond. We meet mike at a park nearby. Mike responds quickly to any questions/concerns or general communications I may have. Very professional and a perfect fit for our son. "

"I’ve had many people throughout my life’s in various sports with the title “coach” but I could honestly say that I guess I never understood what a coach was until I worked with Ilya. You aren’t just another monthly payment and you don’t even be handed cookie cutter BS. He does and will go above and beyond your expections of a coach and will always do his abolsute best to ensure you’re getting the best advise and coaching for YOU. I can’t thank him enough. Pictures: a few months before working with Ilya—> 1 year year later under his coaching."

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

Is kickboxing hard?

Kickboxing is as intense a workout as you want it to be. As with any fitness regimen, the more effort you put in, the more results you will get. The type of kickboxing you do will determine how physically challenging it is. Combat or self-defense kickboxing, where you train in a martial arts studio with sandbags or spar against combat partners, can be an intense physical workout. Group kickboxing classes that use sandbags as part of the workout will also elevate the degree of intensity, because of the level of exertion punching and kicking the bag requires. Cardio kickboxing group fitness, which employ kicking and punching moves but no sandbags, has comparable intensity to jogging but works a wider range of muscles while increasing strength, flexibility and coordination. Here are some of the core kickboxing moves:

  • Cross: A straight punch that you throw slightly across your body, using your dominant hand.
  • Jab: A quick, straight, face punch. Usually thrown with the non-dominant hand.
  • Uppercut: A punch thrown up from the midsection (using either hand) that connects with the underside of your opponent’s chin.
  • Hook: A curved punch (using either hand) that connects with your competitor’s jaw or chin.
  • Side kick: A kick delivered when your competitor is at an angle to you. Raise your leg to the side, then bend at the knee to deliver the kick.
  • Front kick: A kick delivered straight on while you are facing your opponent.
  • Roundhouse kick: A kick delivered by swinging a leg up in a clockwise or counterclockwise motion (depending on which leg you’re using) with momentum to strike the opponent with the instep of the foot.

What should you wear to kickboxing?

What you wear to kickboxing can vary based on the setting. For kickboxing group fitness classes that are part of a gym’s cardio class schedule, standard fitness attire is appropriate. Athletic sneakers, pants or shorts that you can comfortably kick in without getting tangled or flashing anyone, and a top that allows for easy movement when punching and jabbing are all good choices. You won’t need protective gear or gloves, as most cardio-based kickboxing classes do not use punching bags.

Kickboxing training that takes place at a martial arts studio typically requires protective gear. You may need boxing gloves (beginners may want 12-ounce or heavier gloves for more cushioning) and hand wraps that protect and support your hands under the gloves while you punch the bag. If your kickboxing training includes sparring with opponents, you’ll need a mouthguard and any protective head and body gear your studio requires. Always be sure to bring plenty of water, too.

What is a boot camp class?

Fitness boot camps are a heart-pounding way to boost your fitness level. Boot camps are led by a fitness instructor and are based on the concept of military boot camps — intensive workout programs to get new recruits into shape, quickly. Fitness boot camps encourage camaraderie, and the group momentum helps participants get through fast-paced intervals of cardio, isometric training, strength training and endurance drills. Classes may range anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes, and usually meet multiple days per week. Boot camps often run a specific duration of time, say four to six weeks, which creates a team-like environment for class members. Other boot camps run year-round and students purchase package pricing for classes, similar to subscriptions that allow them a set amount of classes per week or per month.

Boot camps can be held indoors at a gym, outdoors in a park or on a beach, in a backyard — anywhere there’s room for running, jumping and sweating. Some instructors also provide DVD and online boot camps. You can also find boot camps tailored to your heart’s desire, such as bikini boot camp, or boot camps for new mothers. Boot camps offer an intense workout and are usually led by energetic instructors pushing you to do your best, but unlike military boot camp drill sergeants, fitness boot camp instructors typically don’t use intimidation or punishment to spur you on. Check with your doctor before starting a boot camp if you have health concerns, and always let your instructor know ahead of time if you have injuries.

What do you need for kickboxing?

What you need to bring to kickboxing depends on where you are working out and what your goals are. For a gym or fitness club’s cardio-based group kickboxing class that does not use punching bags, you generally need only appropriate workout gear and enough water. For kickboxers who are training in a martial arts studio, working one-on-one with a trainer toward a specific goal or sparring with competitors, you will need your own boxing gloves (12- to 16-ounce gloves provide more protection for beginners) and hand wraps (to protect and support your hands under the gloves, as well as keep them dry). If your lessons are in a martial arts studio, you may not be permitted to wear shoes, so bring clean socks if you don’t like to go barefoot. If your training includes sparring, you may be required to wear a mouthguard and/or protective headgear. Whether you’re in a group fitness class or hardcore training session, bring a sweat towel for your comfort and the comfort of people around you.

How much is a boot camp?

The cost of fitness boot camps depends on how often you go, the package you are purchasing (or if you are paying a drop-in fee), the location of the bootcamp, the equipment the instructors provide, and the background and reputation of the instructor. Smaller towns and areas with a lower cost of living typically have lower rates for boot camp services than big cities and regions with a higher cost of living. If you’re paying per class on a drop-in basis, expect to pay anywhere from $12 to $25 or more, depending on the region and the instructor. When you purchase a package of classes, typically the more you buy at one time, the cheaper each class is. The same boot camp class might be $20 for a drop-in student, $15 for a student who pays for 10 classes per month, and $10 for a student who pays for 30 classes a month. Studio space can also affect costs, so if your boot camp takes place in a high-end gym with top-of-the-line equipment, the prices will likely be higher than a class that meets in an outdoor space with limited or no equipment. Shop around to find the right type of boot camp class and the right instructor for you.
