I've been training at StrongFit for a little over 6 months and have been pleased with their services. A few months in I lost 4% body fat to get in the optimal range and significantly improved my lower body strength & endurance, an area I wanted to improve in my initial goal setting. Their flexibility in scheduling is another plus for these guys. Definitely would recommend StrongFit for your needs!!

I started working with Kyle in August of 2015. I was 5 months out from having undergone the gastric sleeve to help better control an endocrine disease that I have. I was 325 pounds before surgery and am now 230lbs. By the time I began working with Kyle, I had already lost 40 pounds. The trainer that I was with had to leave which is how I met Kyle. He was new to the gym so I was one of his first clients. Little did we both realize what kind of journey we were beginning. I trained with him 2 days a week for the next 11 months. Each week he would increase the amount of work I would do. One thing I love about working with Kyle is how he would take my personal situation into account and never treat me as just another client. He knew how far to push me and when it was time to step back and reorganize our workouts. He has a way of holding you accountable but not make you feel like a horrible person if you slip up or don't follow through. Having broken my back in 2009, we would run into injuries at times, and he would just revamp the workouts and help me get past the injury. He also helped to show me the proper way to do different exercises to avoid those injuries! I can now Deadlift 245lbs, Squat 155lbs, and Bench 100lbs! I have lost 100lbs since I began my journey in 2015 and just had skin removal surgery from that weight loss. I have gone from lowering my weight to watching weight gain from muscle growth! After I quit training one on one with Kyle he still stayed in contact with me. At anytime I can call or text him to ask about nutrition or making a new move with training. This man has shown me the world of exercise and now I’m addicted! I crave the gym and my next work out. When it comes to learning, he is your man! He will teach you anything you ask.

Highly recommend! After months of unsuccessful physical therapy I started training with Derrick and had positive results in a short amount of time. He rehabilitated my knee and both rotator cuffs. He encouraged me to be patient and was very knowledgeable in his explanation of the process. His thoroughly researched and customized workouts have brought me back to 100% strength and flexibility and have improved my balance, an issue he recognized and worked on. I've found Derrick to be patient and ethical, truly caring about each client's success. I'm confident of his credentials, his long-term vision, and his ability to see the big picture for himself and his clients.

I met Erica in May of 2014, and was convinced no one could train me better than my previous trainer. Erica rose to the occasion. After our first training session together, in June 2014, I was sitting in my own puddle of sweat wondering how she knew exactly how to exhaust my muscles, yet make me feel SO strong at the exact same time. Erica's knowledge & education, combined with her enthusiasm for life and compassion for people--makes her an incredible trainer (and friend). She comes from a personal place of a wellbeing overhaul, and she graciously shares her experiences and her expertise with each of her clients! She created very specific goals with me and for me, and helped me meet and exceed them. Since the time I started taking my fitness seriously-- I've lost 108 lbs. (in one year!!) Erica has helped foster an athelete's mentality in me. I am stronger today than ever before, and Erica's role has been completely instrumental in my trek to overall wellbeing. She's a rockstar of a trainer. Anyone would be blessed to get the chance to know her and learn from her. You're worth it! Just keep moving! If you ever feel like you can't, let Erica remind you of all the reasons why you can, and most importantly, why you WILL keep moving! Erica is terrific!

Jessica is so great at what she does! I was very hesitant to start working with a personal trainer being that I never have before and really have never lifted weights other than machines at large gyms like Planet fitness sometimes. I’ve progressed more with her in the last couple months than I ever have. I feel great and look forward to my sessions with her each week. She offers so much more than just an hour session. She’s helped with my diet and my work outs outside of the personal training sessions as well. She will adapt to your needs and comfort level but still push and encourage you when you need it. So glad I decided to give her a shot!

Tania has been training me now for about 3 months and it’s been a great experience. She keeps me on track. I am a former Division 1 athlete and I consider myself knowledgeable about training, but she regularly shows me things I didn’t know around cardio, strength, flexibility, injury prevention, or nutrition. She brings science to the workout. And she helps me stay accountable so that when I start to feel a bit lazy I keep moving anyway. Working with her is challenging and fun, and I’m in much better shape than I would be if I didn’t have her.

I have been working with Alexa 1on1 for about six months now and she is absolutely amazing! Through a combo of in person sessions and her monthly programming, I have made more progress in this short time than in years of doing it on my own. By making a few simple changes, I have lost 14lbs and 11% body fat. Whether it's training in the gym or meeting for nutrition, Alexa consistently pushes me far enough to get results each week, and most importantly has never let me give up on myself!

Brad has really helped me start to achieve my goals. My progress has been limited due to outide factors, but I cannot wait to get back to training with Brad. I would not be where I am now with respect to my fittness without his guidance, knowledge, and positive pressure! I absolutely recommend Brad to help you achieve your goals.

My experience working w/Mark as my personal trainer has been in a word EXCELLENT! I’m nearing 3 years training w/Mark. I’m down 30 pounds, have increased strength and stamina to higher levels than when I was in my 30s! As evidence, I recently completed a local triathlon, finishing ahead of many athletes +20 years younger than me! Mark takes a holistic approach to tailor a customized training program to meet/exceed his clients unique needs and personal health goals. I would definitely recommend Mark to anyone who wants to develop a sustainable physical training program as part of an overall healthy lifestyle!

Using Thumbtack, I interviewed several trainers and all were positive interviews, however Wendy stood out. She approached training from a holistic perspective and had a great personality. Being over 50, she tailored exercises specifically for me that I could practice on my own as well as always changing the exercise program up by introducing new concepts and regimens. She integrates changing diet and lifestyle during the sessions to promote the total concept. She actually brought me samples of how she manages her food to eat right " on the go". She is always positive and realizes that training is a journey for most of us that are not body builders, etc. She is always on time and communicates well for any changes. She is awesome! I can't think of anything she can do better. I would highly recommend her if you are considering a trainer in meeting your health-wellness goals. Benita Utz

    Q & A

    Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

    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.

    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 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.
