"As a recent transplant to the Eugene area, I found myself not only in a new environment but facing challenges with my fitness. I'm 50 yrs and going through menopause, which is code for weight gain. After a few weeks of going to our gym and seeing little changes, I decided to look for a personal trainer. I was looking for a female, preferably one who was older and could relate to my challenges. I didn't have much luck and the ones I did find were too expensive if I wanted to go more than once a week. I found My Trainer Jeff and sent a message. He was quick to respond and VERY affordable. I have been going to him twice a week for 3 months now. My workouts are designed for me and he keeps me challenged. I like that each workout is different and focuses on new muscle groups. I like the one to one focus, Jeff is professional and I feel comfortable discussing areas I would like to focus on and overall fitness goals. I would highly recommend My Trainer Jeff to anyone, female or male any age. I have never been a fan of the big gym setting. Jeff is flexible to accommodate my busy schedule and if I have something that comes up, he is quick to offer a different time to help me out. Jeff is also willing to come to you if needed. My biggest take away is realizing many of the strength training exercises I can do in my own home on the days I don't come to MTJ. Give him a call, you'll be happy with your results."

"I started working out with David Odom about a year ago, and what a change this past year has been. David is very knowledgeable about all aspects of fitness as well as health. He pushed me in the gym, and guided me in my nutrition outside the gym. This past year, with the help of David I am in the best shape of my life! He not only coaches you in the gym, but I get friendly reminder text about keeping up the motivation when I'm out doing it on my own. I have worked out with many trainers over the years, but David is hands down THE BEST I've ever been able to work with. David Odom is my trainer for life!!"

"I came into the gym not knowing anything and Vlad has been so incredibly knowledgeable. I've also had to deal with a few unfortunate injuries and Vlad has been so great with helping me heal and getting me to where I need to be. I credit him for most of my success. I don't think I'd be as far as I am on my journey without him!"

" Physical fitness is an aspect of my life that has traditionally alluded me. I had gone to the gym on and off in the past and in college I thought I really knew what I was doing. However, somewhere between graduating college, working a full-time job, and getting married, I lost the drive and focus needed to maintain an active lifestyle. I soon found myself unhappy with my body and felt lethargic throughout the day. So, I decided to make a change. Over the next year I set nutritional goals and worked on my cardiovascular fitness. After a year of running I was fifty pounds lighter but I had not set foot in a gym. I wanted to go to the gym and work on resistance training. However, in all honesty, I had avoided the gym because I felt as if I needed more knowledge before entering a weight room. Then I found G3 and Henry. Henry gave me a tour of the gym and I was impressed by his positive attitude and how approachable he was. I tried one personal training session with Henry and since that first session I haven’t had a moment of disappointment. I can’t begin to thank Henry enough for helping me reach my fitness goals. Henry creates a positive atmosphere for his clients that help them reach their desired goals. However, possibly even more importantly, Henry helps his clients build a strong sense of confidence while working out. That sense of confidence is priceless when it comes to weight training and I no longer avoid going to the gym. In fact, I am excited every time I go to the gym. Henry constantly provides fresh training regimes that are fun and effective. He has taught me how to work out safely, effectively, and properly. Working with Henry continues to be one of the smartest fitness decisions I have made and I look forward to continuing to train with him in the future. "

"Dahrla has been providing private classes for my daughter twice a week for about 3 months. What started out as general fitness training has evolved into martial arts training as well as fitness. My daughter LOVES it (and has lost weight). She is friendly, competent and reliable. Not to mention flexible in scheduling and reasonable fees. We feel very lucky to have met Dahrla and would highly recommend her to anyone interested in either martial arts training or just needing a personal trainer. "

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.
