"Kyle is very professional and sees the problems I have with my body. No other trainer has told me I have had rolled shoulder syndrome or posterior pelvic tilt which is why my lower back hurts. Ever since training I am feeling better with my lower back and my posture. He knows what he is doing and what he sees to fix the problem."

"I had a great training session with Kalia! From first contact she was very responsive and friendly. When we got to the actual gym I loved her enthusiasm and her attitude as well; she was both pleasant and encouraging, while also pushing me to make sure that I got the most out of my workout. The session flew by and I had a great time, definitely felt the results the next day! Thanks Kalia!"

"Brenda is amazing and an absolute life saver. She is professional, committed, dependable and enthusiastic. I loathe to exercise, but knew I had to find a way to get back to being consistent and I couldn't do it on my own. I used Thumb Tack and found Brenda. She came to my apt. 3 times a week for the last 8 weeks. She always had a way to engage me and get me motivated. I did a lot of complaining and she rolled with it and met me where I was. She was always encouraging and changed the workout to suit my ability and mood. No matter how difficult I was she just supported me and I began to get more motivated. Brenda went to the gym with me, took walks, we did a lot of stairs, and had great routines when she trained me in my apt. My favorite was boxing! I truly cannot say enough wonderful things about Brenda. She also knows about diet and nutrition and has given me easy to follow suggestions. I look forward to continuing... I can already see my body changing, but more importantly I feel better than I have in many years! Thank you, Brenda! "

"I was training with Iosif since June 2016 (more than a year) - and I really value this relationship. Iosif is a very experienced trainer. He is the true professional in the best meaning of this word. Over this time I made a lot of progress, lost weight, gained muscle, became much more flexible. I stay differently. I move differently. I feel differently. When I travel, I miss our training sessions. I really feel better when I train with Iosif regularly (2-3 times per week). What I like about Iosif is how he customizes the training sessions based on my current state. It is amazing how a small change to an exercise or a stretch can completely change its difficultly level. Also it is quite amazing how Iosif can make effective workouts with minimum set of tools (or even without any equipment)."

"Just started training with Manny and I couldn't be happier. High energy, and super friendly, he makes working out fun while still whooping your behind. The gym he works out of also has a great atmosphere. Cozy and personal. Always great energy from all the staff and other clients. If you're serious about your goals and want a great personal training/mma experience, go see Manny and you won't be disappointed."

"I never work as hard as during my workouts with Alex. I finish each workout with a sense of accomplishment, feeling mentally and physically better, and long-term training with him guarantees results. He combines weight training, crossfit-style functional training, stretching and core exercises, and is a great motivator. He's also super easy to communicate with, straightforward, and reliable."

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.
