"I enjoyed the variety of exercises and intensity that Amanda kept in her class. She was moving around the class offering that personnel touch and keeping the momentum high! She was clear with her vocals and movements! I have also had the opportunity to train one on one with Amanda, she kept my interest with a variety of supersets and intensity that I like! I had asked Amanda to focus on my core, due to the terrible shape I was in at the time. I was impressed with her positive energy and her ability to keep the pace that was perfect for my level of conditioning. I would definitely recommend her a professional and intense trainer!"

"Working with Clarissa has changed my life. With her guidance, I have lost 60lbs and have keep it off. Clarissa is very encouraging and positive to work with. She doesn't give a cookie cutter plan that everyone gets. She takes the time to learn about every client and writes a plan according to their needs. Working with Clarissa@elitefitforlife has been one of the most monumental decisions of my life. The results truly spreak for themselves. I make better decisions with my eating habits. I sleep better. I move better. I breathe better, was able to stop using my inhaler only a couple of months into our plan. I'm stronger. I'm more confident and my kids are so proud of me and following my lead. I highly recommend Clarissa for your physical training and nutrition needs."

"This was my first experience with a personal trainer, I had been highly suspicious of having someone who was going to judge my body, and make me get into protein shakes or weird diets, but Justin is none of those things. He is so cheerful (all day, everyday), optimistic, and kind. And he'll also totally kick your butt. He knows how to push you right up to your limit, without risking injury. I was nervous to start training because I've never considered myself to be athletic at all, but after the first day I knew that I could trust him completely to help me improve in all the ways I wanted. He's helped me feel so much stronger than I ever thought I would. He changes up the workouts every day to keep things fun and interesting. Justin eats, sleeps, and breaths healthy living....and the longer you train with him the more his lifestyle will rub onto yours. From the two months I've worked out with him, I've definitely seen a huge difference in my body, eating habits, and overall energy."

"I can only say good things about Morgan and her philosophies about how to attain fitness goals. She has helped me set and crush my goals several times over with her whole-person approach. I not only look better, but I feel more confident, and I have gained a comprehensive understanding of how to fuel my body. Morgan embodies every quality that I would want in a trainer: from a depth of knowledge, a positive attitude, and fostering my intrinsic motivation. She always shows up with a smile and a unique workout just for me. I love how she can push me and bring out my inner athlete, while also adapting workouts to my limitations."

"My experience was excellent, very knowledgeable and professional. I appreciate the fact that he took time to listen to me about my goals and injuries. I had other trainers that didn't want to take me on because of my injuries but Mr Morehead took me in as a client and as a friend. He taught me that I shouldn't let injuries confine me and that I was still able to accomplish my goals. I applaud him for everything that he has accomplished and he isn't a regular trainer, he goes that extra miles. Now when I receive compliments I tell them, "If you want real results and my body he's the guy." "

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 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 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.

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.

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.
