"I was working with Matt from the past 6 weeks and its been, fantastic working with him. I have noticed significant change in my measurements with in a month, and I am extremely happy with it, and I am confidant that I will reach my set goals with in the next 3-4 months. He imparts moral confidence on your fitness and motivates you for the best results. He always takes my feedback and changes the workouts accordingly, so that my body wont hurt. He also provided the diet plan based on my existing diet to archive optimum results. Before working with Matt, I used to do the exercises regularly but could not see any progress, but after working with him and allotting the same amount of time that I used to spend my self, I saw a significant change. Though the changes are minor but they are the stepping stones to improve my fitness levels. Matt is not a magician to do miracles overnight and get the results instantaneously, but he cares about my body fitness. The only thing that Matt might ask is a dedicated commitment in myself to achieve my fitness goals. I would definitely recommend him as your fitness trainer if you are committed to your fitness goals. The best part is....He comes to us...rather than we go to his place. This saves us some travelling time and can fit it based on our schedule. . "

"Mat has been an outstanding trainer! So far I’m down almost 30lbs. I’ve had multiple trainers in the past. However, with my previous trainers they had me doing similar or the same workouts each week or sometimes each time I would train. However, with mat he makes sure that each workout is different than the last. I love that! It make me excited to come in for each session making me look forward to learning something new! He has a great personality and is extremely knowledgeable. Thanks mat!"

"I learned a lot working with Brandon. Not only did he show me techniques to modify my exercise and weight lifting routine during and after pregnancy, but we worked on a few different food plans that have really helped me learn to balance nutrition and fuel intake even when I'm not following a specific diet. No matter if my goal was strength building or weight loss, Brandon knew how to get me there with a balance of food and exercise. I always saw results, and he made sure I never felt like I was starving or overworked."

"I met with Troy when I first came to Ultimate U. His enthusiasm and desire to help others was easily "exposed" through his personableness. Troy has such a big heart and strives to help others meet and become their own personal "Ultimate U." Troy has impressed me since day one. I love everything about Ultimate U--from those working the front desk to the atmosphere when entering the gym to each of the trainers. Ultimate U is a "family" - a family that cares about each of its members. I'm so glad to be part of the Ultimate U family!! Thanks Troy! Thanks Ultimate U!"

"CFP is the best - highly recommend. I love the gym atmosphere and the trainers are truly the best at what they do. It’s also a low pressure environment which is rare for personal training - I always feel like my needs and wants come first. You won’t find a personalized fitness experience like this anywhere else."

"When I was finally ready to search for a trainer, I knew the type of trainer I was looking for. I was looking for a person who knew how to exercise, a person who was a good listener in terms of what I wanted to change about my body, a person who was patient yet would push me as they knew I could handle, a person who is creative with their exercise technique and program, a person who is timely and dedicated, and a person who looked the part with their own body. When I first saw Mo, of course he looked the part naturally / not artificially, and the more I worked with him, I knew he knew what he was talking about. Mo has a great personality, I really enjoy his training sessions, and he is a motivator for me. He has a lot of great qualities to go far in this business. (Bonita Chavis)"

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.
