I have been working out with Matt for 8 weeks now and absolutely LOVE it!! I have seen changes in my body and I am very excited to reach my goal! He is extremely reliable, dependable and motivating. He takes the time to check on you even on the days your not training with him. He makes you feel comfortable and makes working out really fun. It's my favorite day and I look forward to moving up to two days a week. I would highly recommend him to anyone that is wanting to get healthy and change their lives. I have the highest confidence that Matt will help you achieve your goal.

When I first started training with Eric I weighed 160 lbs and barely knew how to handle a barbell. After following his programming I put on over 35 lbs of muscle, doubled my bench press, squat and deadlift weight, and over time learned the best way to develop and follow my own exercise programs. Thanks to his coaching, I actually ended up changing my career path and now manage my own gym! Could not recommend more. Thanks man!

Mat was hands down the most thorough and educational personal trainer I have ever had! He made sure step by step I knew exactly what was going on, how to perfect my workouts, and always made sure I had a great time. He is such a friendly and caring personal trainer I would recommend him to anyone! I had a knee injury from sports that I played in high school and just training with him for a few months I can lift more weight than I ever have before! If you are looking for a very educational, personable, and all around great personal training then Mathew Blum is your guy! Won’t train with anyone else!

If you are looking for a top notch personal trainer, Ilirjana Seiti is the person for you. After several sessions of physical therapy to address various lower back and cervical spine issues we decided to get a personal trainer to help us achieve our goal of muscle strengthening and resistance training. We were lucky to find Ilirjana, who was training some of our neighbors in our own building gym. Ilirjana developed a program for us taking into account our issues. She is an excellent professional, who challenges you, but is also careful not to cause additional injuries. She takes a personal interest in her clients‘ overall well-being and progress. Ilirjana has a bubbly personality, but takes her work very seriously. She is caring and above all, a wonderful human being. Working out with her is rewarding and fun. We trained with Ilirjana for about 18 months and were very sorry to lose her when she and her new husband decided to move back home to Ohio. Too bad she cannot be cloned.

I chose Kim and fabYOUlous fitness because of her focus on women over 40 and the individual attention I was able to get from her. Kim spent time learning about my specific needs and goals, and devotes our sessions to that long term plan. In addition, she is a certified and qualified Corrective Exercise Specialist, and so she adds a layer of focus on injured or compromised muscles. I especially love that my workouts are in a studio devoted exclusively to personal training sessions and small focus groups, and also that Kim's availability is flexible enough that it fits very well with my demanding schedule. Kim consistently shows me that she truly wants to help me reach my goals. She helps me meet my challenges, and shares in my successes. Our sessions are tough and demanding, with just the right amount of encouragement and positive reinforcement. I feel very fortunate to have Kim as my personal trainer.

Tyson is an excellent trainer – he takes the time to understand your fitness goals and tailors every training session to uniquely fit your needs and abilities. By varying the workouts, and taking the time to get to know his clients and what motivates them, he actually makes it fun and the time flies by! It’s clear to see why so many of his clients have successfully reached their fitness goals – I highly recommend working with him!

I was informed by my MD - Strength Training would be a good idea. Joe has been most successful with all aspects of training. He takes a personal interest in the particular areas that need work to gain strength and progress to the next level of training. Each time we meet he asks how you are feeling and waits for the feedback before we proceed. Joe is extremely knowledgeable in the area of training and it is obvious he is quite dedicated to his specialty.

Gentry has been training me since August 2016. She is the most positive, upbeat, motivating person I have ever met and I have truly forgotten the feeling of dreading going to the gym, and reversely look forward to every day I train with her; in fact, more often than not it is the highlight of my day. I started going to her to add upper body strength to my noodle arms and also to get a Kardashian booty, because what girl doesn't want that. I was pleasantly surprised at how working out with Gentry 3-4 times a week produced real results so quickly! Gentry's workouts are unique and challenging every week and the sessions fly by. My self esteem, mood and general health has skyrocketed since coming to her. I love telling family and friends about her because training with her is truly one of the best investments I have ever made! :)

I absolutely love this gym! As a student at OSU for 8 years, I always had free access to all the gyms on campus, but I was never motivated enough to go on my own. Once I signed up for Nate's classes, I started working out 4-5x/week continuously and kept it up for a year until I had to move. To date, this is the only exercise routine I have kept up consistently and I loved the results I started seeing right away. Each class is wholly different from the one the day before and Nate keeps it fun with partner work, running outside, and always the best music. What I love most about Jackhammer is how Nate is willing to go out of his way for his clients. For example, I was supporting myself completely on student loans, and he was willing to negotiate the price for me so that I could continue to work out. He obviously cares about each of his clients and is extremely passionate about training them. He really takes the time to understand each individual's training level, and tailors each workout so that everyone feels successful at the end of the hour. I would recommend Jackhammer Strength Training to everyone trying to find a gym that will go the extra mile to get you healthy!

I have done both personal training and group exercise classes with Courtney. During the personal training, she was creative, tough, and kept me highly motivated. She challenged me to try new things that I hadn't done before and to run faster, lift more , and make the most of our sessions. Logistically, she worked well with my schedule, and she was always prompt and never cancelled a scheduled personal training session. Her group exercise classes are also great. They are high intensity, and I always feel that I am getting a tough workout.

I reached out to Pursuit Fitness through Thumbtack back in September and man was that a great decision on my part! I wanted to find a personal trainer that understood that I was in this to form a habit with the expectation that I could take over on my own once I felt comfortable. Russ was the perfect fit. He responded to my quote that same day and we set up a time to discuss his options for personal training and go over a free consultation. I was very impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, and facility! I ended up purchasing a three-month package for 30 minute sessions and we worked together to establish goals and track my progress. Every time I showed up he was ready to go with a new routine, and throughout the session he would explain which muscles we were targeting, why it's beneficial, and how it all connects. We would discuss diet and the types of exercises I should be doing when not at the sessions, as well as variations to those exercises. The facility was very nice, a little crowded at times but that just goes to show how more and more people are drawn to Russ's expertise as well as the rest of the team there! I purchased a gym membership as well and really appreciated the 24 hour access. Overall I had a fantastic experience, learned a lot, and will take the knowledge that Russ has given me to develop my own routines to keep active and healthy in the future! I really can't thank him enough!

Tifiro Cook is an excellent trainer for all body types and age groups. I started training with Tifiro in July 2014. He was very open to my fitness and nutritional goals. Being a fitness instructor I've seen how some trainers can be intimidating towards their client. You will not get that with Tifiro, he makes you feel like you have a true coach in your ear every step of the way. His training sessions are fresh and exciting. You will never get bored or run into a routine with him. Tifiro will push to improve mental focus to further achieve fitness milestones. Tifiro will mold your training sessions to your fitness level and physical abilities. As someone who has a chronic joint disorder he has assisted in keeping my knee healthy and strengthening up my quads to help support my knee. I have seen tremendous changes in my body that have people asking what I'm doing! When partnering healthy and clean nutrition with Tifiro Cook's training I know I can't lose. In addition Tifiro trains my son who has healthy fitness aspirations and to prepare him for sports when he is ready. My son looks forward to his sessions with T! I recommend all women, men, and children to check him out.

Cody has been working with my son Joshua for about 8 weeks on powerlifting. Joshua qualified for Special Olympics Summer Games after 4-5 weeks of training. Cody is very professional and is open to ideas and suggestions on working with Joshua. He keeps him motivated and pushing forward. I think Cody does an awesome job working with Joshua.

Mike is a great trainer! I have been training with him for over 6 months and plan to continue training with him! He has taught and shown me how to build my metabolism and how I can still enjoy some foods I love and not gain weight. I have also gotten a lot stronger and do not have nearly as much pain in my lower back as I used to. I have learned so much about exercise while with him!

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.
