Brian has been my personal trainer for about a year and a half. He encourages me and always has a positive attitude which helps me to want to work out even harder. He is very knowledgeable about nutrition and physical training, working with me closely to ensure I avoid injury and help me target my core problem areas. I am in my 40's and so I feel working out is critical and Brian's help has benefitted me greatly in my physcial strength and my health. I would not hesitate to recommend Brain to anyone who is looking for a personal trainer.

Motivating yourself to go to the gym regularly can be a huge hassle for anyone. But once you start, you find yourself pushing harder and harder to achieve your physical goals. It simply takes repetition, and a motivating trainer to push you along when you don't feel like it that day. I trained with Terry for basketball, strength training and diet plan. He is very knowledgeable in physical health and really breaks down the science behind what he's teaching. As for basketball, I'm a pretty average player for my age (30). Training with him on my shot form has helped tremendously in allowing me to make more of the shots that I take, as well as improving my footwork. This helps a lot in defense. That coupled with my strength training and diet has given me vastly more endurance in every aspect of my life. The hardest part of training is the diet. However, that is really more up to you. Surprisingly, Terry's diet plan is rather easy to stick to and it doesn't starve you to death like some diets do. But like any diet, you have to be really committed to it in order to see results. I lost about 18 pounds in just over 4 weeks while on it. Terry is very easy to take direction from , and very willing to work with you on your schedule to ensure that you maximize your workouts both in the gym and at home. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking to improve their overall health and performance.

I have been training with Terrell since July 2013, when I found him my body and workouts were sorta at a plateau.. He managed to push me to the next level mentally and physically with results I never thought possible. The motivation and dedication he puts into each and every workout are amazing. You will look and feel your best when you train with Terrell ... There truly is no other trainer out there who can guide you through your fitness journey!

I have been a member of Wallace Training for a little over a month. My experience has been nothing but excellent. The owner takes pride in his gym, his product, his equipment. His staff is super friendly and super helpful. When you are in there with the trainer it is all about you. You aren't treated as just a client. You are treated as if you have been friends for years. It's clear the owner and his staff don't see helping others reach goals as just a job. They help you push through the workouts. They don't let you give up. So far in just 10 sessions (2 times a week) I have lost 5 lbs and down 4 inches. I can't wait to see what other results I accomplish while working wothbWallace Training Systems.

Nick is the most dedicated and thorough trainer I’ve ever had (I’ve had quite a few over the years). He creates both workout and meal plans and makes sure they’re personalized for my specific needs (e.g., recurring lower back pain, veganism). He treats each of his clients like they’re his top priority. He’s always available for questions even when we’re not training. Really happy to be working with him.

I have been training with CP for a couple weeks now. He really pushes you and helps you get to where you wanna be. Since training with CP I can lift more and do a little more cardio than I could before. Without a good trainer like CP I dont think I could of pushed myself this hard to get to where I am today.

I started seeing Tim for massage therapy for neck pain related to severe whiplash. The results were so remarkable I decided to try his training program. In following through with all of his excellent training techniques I was able to overcome the pain and limited mobility caused by torn meniscus in both knees. Prior to training with Tim I had trouble squatting and walking long distances. I am now able to run again! I recently ran two 5Ks and a 10K, and I can squat with 55 lbs.of weight on my shoulders. I have been training with Tim for two years and the results have been amazing. He is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. With his nutritional guidance I have lost 60 lbs. But even more surprising to me, I have dropped 7 dress sizes! The exercise program he gave me completely resculpted my shape so that I now wear a size two (2) which I have never worn before even at the same weight as I am now. In summary I highly recommend Tim for both massage and personal training. It has completely changed my body and my life for the better!

    Yaakov is an amazing trainer! Not only is he a great motivator and helps you with that extra push, he is also a teacher on the human body. He is so knowledgeable which is very important to me and who I choose to help me stay fit. Anyone can read an article, work out in a gym and offer personal training, but Yaakov has the education that most others do not. He is also genuine in wanting to make a difference, he understands gyms are not at everyones comfort level, therefore he can come to your home with all equipment needed, and work with you. My results have been outstanding and I cant wait to see the continuous results.

    I had trained for 6 years with numerous trainers before I started training with Dan. I could not do even 1 pull up. After a few months working with Dan, I was able to do 7 pull ups! He knows how to get your body where you want it to be. You Will gain strength and have a better body. I am a male in my late 50's and he was able to give me the stronger body I had hoped for. If he can do that for me, imagine what he can do for you? I have also seen the great results he has had with young athletes. If you are looking to have a better, stronger body, I highly recommend working with Dan!

      I just wanted to share my experience with personal trainer Kaylee Bowden at Without Limits Fitness. I am going into my third month and I feel great. The workouts are fun and challenging and work the entire body. I can see the results but most importantly I can feel them as I drive for a living causing back pain and with the improvements to my core I no longer have back pain. Thank You Kaylee! Val Smithbauer

      Rob was very knowledgeable, patient, and kind to me during our workout session. He understood that I was not a fan of exercise,I expressed to him that it was something I needed to do to lose weight and feel healthier! He showed me a few different routines and one was actually really fun. There was one that used something called a Bosu, which really challenged me to stay balanced and burned lots of calories in the process After our sessions were done, we set up a routine that I could easily do in my home and that fit in my schedule. Now I feel confident that I can carry out our exercise plan and work towards my fitness goals. I highly recommend Rob as a personal trainer!

          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.
