I first met Marie when I was looking for a trainer to help me get in shape for the police academy. I was never a runner, but in about 6 months, Marie whipped me into shape. Since then, for the past 8 years, I've trained off and on with Marie (depending on what my schedule allowed). Marie always makes our training sessions fun and different. You never really know what she has in store for you before you get there. Marie has always taken into account my own level of fitness as well as others who have joined in group sessions. She never pushes us further than what we can handle, but always encourages us to go just a little more than we did the last time. My favorite workouts are Bleacher Bootcamp days, where she mixes running with assorted strength training exercises. Your muscles don't know what hit them!

Adventure bootcamp was my first group training experience and, I have to admit, the idea of being involved in something with the word "bootcamp" in it was intimidating. I expected a drill sergeant type of instructor barking at me to get my legs up higher or drop and do 20 push-ups. Instead I met Phil who's style of motivation was surprisingly nonthreatening. He let me work at my pace but didn't let me slack. This left me with a feeling a empowerment instead of defeat. I contribute a lot of my enthusiasm to not only his encouragement but also his ability to always come up with innovative ways to challenge his clients. You never knew what you would be doing that day but you always knew at the end you would feel like you've gotten an incredible workout and a sense of accomplishment because you were stretched go do things you never imagined you could. I can say with certainty that nothing is beyond my reach or ability because I've told myself I can't many times in the past and after taking his course I've seen those cant's change to cans and wills. If you're on the fence about whether you should sign up for one of Phils classes take my advice and just give it a try. You won't be disappointed.

I started working out in my home with Steve in February of 2013. I was pretty out of shape and Steve made me feel comfortable with my ability level by adding modifications when needed and always encouraging me to keep going even when I thought I couldn't. Since then I have stopped doing personal training at my home and instead attend his bootcamp classes 1-2 times a week. No class is ever the same and always keeps us on our toes. He's the same at class as he is with personal training, always encouraging and always demonstrating exercises so that we know exactly how to do them. Over my past year and a half working with him, alomg with a better diet, I have lost 40 lbs and am 2 lbs shy of my high schol graduation weight, which i never would have dreamed of coming close to again. Thanks Steve!

I took a strength and bootcamp class with Swift Fox Fitness and it was super challenging but fun! It was a smaller group so we were able to do so many different exercises and the 50 minute class was well worth it. Can’t wait for the next one!

Positive and enthusiastic, she is a great motivator. I went to a free bootcamp and got my butt kicked! I have also been to a nutrition seminar hosted by Keara and received excellent information.

    Aesha comes to my house to train me about twice a week. It is very hard for me to go to a gym to workout due to my personal situation at home but having Aesha has allowed me to work on myself 2 hours a week. In 6 months I have lost inches and definitely strengthened and toned my body. It also helps my mind. I am so grateful for her knowledge and services.

    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.
