"I’ll preface this review with a little bit about myself: I was formerly pretty athletic however let my laziness get the best of me over a few year time period. I was very sporadic with my workouts and wanted personal feedback and help with my goalsetting from someone who knows what they are doing. All of this being said, it’s not true that you can get results from just any trainer or online coach, you need someone who knows not only from experience but also from experience with working with people and being personable and flexible. My goals were to focus on my weak, unstable muscles and to get back into shape and also transition to “CrossFit shape”. I have had minor back and shoulder problems and working with Jared the past three months, I’ve never felt better and I feel that I made more progress with technique (a major goal to prevent re-injury) from personal coaching in three months than I did in the past five years. In terms of value, it’s not often that you find a trainer that is extremely flexible and it doesn’t charge you extra or forfeit training sessions because of scheduling mishaps. Jared has always been extremely courteous, is very respectful of my time particularly if I am late for one reason or another. Jared is also very quick to respond by text message and checks in the day after. As is true with many hobbies or learning a new skill, for example playing the piano, etc. You do need to be dedicated at least two or three times a week and willing to work out on your own depending on your own goals, Jared has been awesome with helping me get to that point, and helps you keep a log of your progress. His goals and vision for my health have been very honest and he doesn’t cut corners. I’d recommend him to anyone!"

"I have been working with Bill since June 2015 (about six months) and have seen huge changes in a short amount of time. Bill has helped me shift from eating six small meals per day (who has time for that?!) to intermittent fasting with four meals per day. What a remarkable change! Not only is it easier to plan fewer meals but I also enjoy them more because they aren’t so tiny and mentally taxing! With Bill’s help and the intermittent fasting mindset I have been able to slim down 20lbs. I was stuck in a rut when I first met with Bill so seeing and feeling this change has been fantastic physically and mentally! Another area Bill helped me with was reducing my training and time spent in the gym—LESS time in the gym?—sounds crazy, right?! Not so! Bill steered me towards more meaningful workouts and elimination of overtraining. I was very guilty of overtraining—more is better? Wrong! Bill’s method is simple: 1. Have a plan; 2. 30 minutes to execute the plan; and 3. If you can’t get it done in 30 minutes you’re doing it wrong. It’s wonderful not to spend two hours in the gym every morning wearing myself out overtraining and not seeing results. The lifting/cardio regimen Bill taught me has worked wonders on my body. My back has toned even more, my waste/hips are smaller (!), and my strength is at an all time high. Seeing the physical changes I’m able to achieve with Bill’s guidance has improved my confidence and mental health, as well. Bill knows this business! He makes certain you are doing the best exercises for you and doing them with the correct form for best results! His fitness knowledge, personal experience, and guidance are an asset. I highly recommend his services to anyone looking to change for the better! Lyndsy Haviland, CPIM, CSCP, Lean Expert"

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.
