"I am a physician at the Rhode Island Lifespan Hospital. I have worked with many medical professionals in my career so far but I have nothing but compliments for this personal trainer. He is very knowledgeable about human kinesiology and physiology. He is very flexible and willing to work around my busy physician schedule. He is extremely understanding of my work/life balance. He will go out of his way to adjust his schedule to fit mine. He builds customized exercise plan that is tailored to each individual. My wife and I have been working with him for months and we have no complaints. One of the greatest attributes of this trainer is his dedication and hard-work. He is committed to improving my health. When I am training with him, he is always mentally/physically/spiritually present 100% of the time. He is very professional and punctual. He constantly thinks of different ways he can challenge my body, to work with and through functional injuries or limitations, if needed. Not only is this trainer a very educated and knowledgeable professional, he is very sociable and respectful. I am new to this area and he has become a great motivator, teacher, and friend. My wife and I highly recommend working with this trainer."

"Jamie Enriques is like no other trainer I've had. The knowledge he brings to the workouts are informative and effective to strange pains and injury recovery, he is thinking of you and how your moving. He is extremely passionate and motivating. I am impressed with his knowledge and understanding of Vipr, strength training, kettle bells and functional mobility. I have learned so much for the past two years of being a member of this inclusive gym."

"Jason has been working with my husband on personal training sessions at our home twice a week. I originally got my husband a set of eight sessions as a gift and he was very happy to continue with Jason when that block was up. The personal sessions work better for my husband than trying to make it to the gym and I can always tell when they work on muscle groups he's not used to because he definitely can feel it afterwards! Jason was great to work with in setting up the sessions, happy to answer any questions, and was very accommodating. I would definitely recommend him for this type of service in the future!"

"I met Jeremiah when he lived in RI at a local gym. Was very impressed with his work ethic. And was always curious of his meal plans and workout regiment. After he won his pro card he moved to CA. Thought to myself "crap" just missed the boat. But no. He started BullFrog Fit. Shot him text and it was on. Jeremiah has exceeded my expectations. Being on opposite coast has not changed anything. He put together a custom meal plan for me as well as a workout regiment. I am on my second week of my 9 week challenge and Jeremiah checks on me every other day. He answers any question I have promptly and professionally. He is with me every step of the way. I am so impressed. "

"I've been training with Kevin for almost 2 years now but saw results immediately. I've been diagnosed with MS for over 10 years and was taking 5 different medications for MS and or symptoms because of the MS. I had issues with balance, strength, fatigue, vertigo, pain in my hands/feet and dizziness. In just 7 weeks while training with Kevin not only did I improve or eliminate all of those things, I lost 11 lbs, 2 dress sizes, 5% body fat and best of all, I only take one medication now. I'm without a doubt a healthy, happier person and I look forward to every session I have with him. Kevin's training sessions are fun, motivating, inspirational and I even get nutrition suggests. He has truly changed my life!"

"Alicia was just an amazing PT. She was brutal when she was in the session with you and absolutely delightful outside of that 1 hour session.... All the while she made me feel comfortable during the session and pushed me so hard that I used to hate her during the workout. But I think that's exactly what you want in PT. The one who is a devil in session and an angel outside... Her workout sessions are designed keeping you and your needs in mind, and she knows how far to push you to get the best result possible. Due to a move in my job I had to leave her sessions mid way. But in the 2 months I was with her, I got to know what potential I have and if pushed, I can lose weight easily. If the possibility comes, I will definitely have her as my PT again. Love you Alicia..."

"adam is the best trainer in the world. his workout seemed odd to me at first because i thought i'd be lifting weights, but his technique of combining cardio and cross fit and strength training all makes sense now. it allows for variety so it doesn't get usual. and he makes you want to do better...i'm even eating better. i still can't believe he was able to get rid of my gut...i have 6 pack abs now!!! :) i have so much more energy. it's amazing how much more i get done in a day now.

"I’ve always struggled with my weight and I’m now at an age when changing my diet a little and exercise here and there throughout the week is not going to make much of a difference. I start to lose motivation when I don’t see or feel results within a couple of weeks. I like working with Power Step because not only do I get the intensity I need but the attention and comfort of working out with a professional. I could feel the difference with my asthma within a couple of weeks. I feel like I’m finally making a change in my health and weight! It’s a great feeling!"

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.
