Okay. I don't write reviews,but this guy is worth it. Disclaimer: I am incredibly long winded. But get to the bottom of it if you're serious about getting yourself on track. Sooooo I walked away from fitness about 5 years ago. Burned out and done. 5 years later, and I realized the huge void in my life was being physically fit. I did my homework...researched the hell out of every trainer in Nashville. It was clear he was the best. This was last November? Maybe even October. I met with him. He was great, and I knew he was capable of getting me back to where I was so long ago. Well, true to form, I stalled. I came up with tons of lame excuses why I couldn't start. Well, he was so intuitive after our first meeting, that he knew he was gonna have to stay on me to get me out of my fear zone. Okay, forget fear...truth was I was petrified to start over. I was at ground zero. Muscle tone was gone. Cardio was past the point of rescue. So he would randomly text and call me from October until March. 5 months! Who does that?? And he wasn't pushing me for any financial gain on his part. He really gave a shit. So I finally took the plunge. I cried a lot after each session. Starting over (or starting for the first time) is a daunting task. He gauged where I was. He pushed me (ever so gently), and always encouraged me when he saw I was ready to bail. (Seriously. I would sob at the end of every session. NO GUY likes that! But he was great. Super supportive, even if he was thinking "Man, this girl's a hot mess!" All I can say is do it. Call him. And trust him. You won't be some random person he's out to train. He will know exactly what to do with you. No "one size fits all" training here. Personalized just for you. He knows what he's doing on all levels of fitness and nutrition. So do it. Now! Happy training!!! ~Em (Die hard Law fan)

I chose his 12 month program and I waited two months to post a review. I've never felt better in my life and I'm only two months in. In my first two weeks I noticed a huge difference. At the end of the first month I realised I had already lost ten of the forty pounds I aimed to lose. I also began kickboxing and yoga which I love. James is extremely knowledgeable and professional. He's always able to work with my schedule and encourages me to keep going. I'm so excited to see the difference after four or ten more months.

Ethan Painter was my trainer for over a year. I approached him about using weight training to address bone loss in my hips. The program that he designed was so effective, that within 1 year the bone loss stopped as determined by a bone density test. He was always pleasant and encouraging. My goals for each session were challenging, but attainable. I never thought that I would enjoy weight training, however, I looked forward to my time and my overall strength and fitness increased substantially. Ethan designs each client's program very individually, tailoring their workouts to their specific needs and goals. Anyone with the motivation and discipline to seek out personal training will certainly reach their health, weight, or fitness goals if they follow the workout plan Ethan designs for them.

Amy’s HIIT classes have been a life changer for me as a working mom. Her 5:30am classes 3 days a week allow me to get my work out in before the family is up and before I have to be out the door for the day. She does a great job of creating a 30-35 minute HIIT workout that has increased my muscle mass and decreased my body fat. And it’s affordable! Amy’s group classes typically have 3-5 other individuals in them, and we rotate through stations working various muscle groups and incorporating cardio along the way. I highly recommend Amy. She’s responsive, relatable, and professional. I’m so thankful to have discovered her and her classes.

Sarah is an amazing trainer! She greets every client with a warm smile and is genuinely interested in not only his/her personal fitness goals, but who he/she is as an individual. She comes prepared to every session with a specific workout plan tailored to each individual client's needs, but can and will modify her plan to accommodate her client. She finds new ways to challenge her clients while making the workout experience fun and different every time. I have been working out with Sarah for almost 4 months and there has not been one exercise routine that has been repeated. With each session Sarah pushes me with new exercises, new goals, and new ways to challenge my body and mind. Her combinations of cardio and bodyweight exercises have challenged my body to shred fat and build lean muscle while also helping me with nutritional needs, even if it's to share a good recipe! With Sarah's help, I'm not only reaching my fitness goals, I'm conquering them and making new ones! When you're working out with Sarah, you're not just working out with a great trainer. You are working out with a great friend!

Worth every penny for sure. First, the facilities at Next Level Fitness are top notch and allow for variation in exercises. Equipment very well maintained. Lee is the type of trainer who listens to what you want to accomplish and helps you achieve that. I wanted someone to motivate me and push me and he was awesome at increasing intensity when needed while being very careful about avoiding injury. Knowing that I am a runner, Lee didn't focus as much on cardio. Instead, he tackled my weaknesses by focusing on compound movements and core exercises since I'm a beginner in strength training. In short, he is not a cookie-cutter trainer. The warm up and stretch routines he taught me have been very helpful in maintaining healthy and happy joints (specially since I run frequently). Furthermore, he helped learn how to continue training on my own beyond our sessions, unlike other trainers who just want your money. I feel prepared to hit the gym on my own for a while, but I will definitely be coming back to Lee. He is very flexible with his time and will go out of his way to accommodate you. Always on time, always prepared, very organized, and overall a pleasant person to be around.

I'm so excited to be working with Rachel! She's incredibly motivating and very inspiring! So far, her high-intensity cardio/weight training is kicking my butt, but it feels great. Right now, we work out in the gym at her apartment, which is well-equipped. She'll push you when you need it most, but also provides a compassionate ear when you're struggling. I can't wait to see the end results!!!

My wife and I started taking a class with Will on 3/9/16. I have asthma and in the beginning was really struggling with the cardio, however with Will's encouragement I began to see an increase in stamina and lung capacity, We take the class twice a week and workout in between with weight and cardio, When I started the class three weeks ago I thought I was going to have a heart attack before it was over, Now I can go to the park on a nice day and run three miles. I definately feel and look better, I've been stuck at 235 for a while and am now 228 8 lbs closer to my goal of 215. Thanks Will for your support and help

Matt is a FANTASTIC trainer! I lost 15 pounds training with Matt! He truly wants to help you reach your goals. Matt helped me understand that nutrition is the key to weight loss results and he also helped me see that it can be much easier to eat healthy when you take a long term health approach diet. His training is extremely specific and precise. He has a plan at all times that is catered to your abilities. In our workouts we focused on strength and what he called "muscle building cardio". He's truly an expert on exercise and making the goal of the exercise or circuit clear. The workouts were REALLY tough, but we pushed through every workout and it was worth it. I would recommend Matt to anyone that's looking for a personal trainer. He's always extremely professional and just a really nice guy to be around. Definitely a 5 star trainer!

I didn't feel like I was improving when I worked out until I started working out with Danny. He is the best. We do a mix of arms, legs, and kickboxing. He is funny and motivating. Working out is not exactly my favorite thing, so his jokes, variety of exercises, and music choice (ranging from 2000's pop to musicals, to punk rock) make me actually look forward to our sessions. My main goal was to build muscle tone, and I can certainly tell I've gotten stronger. I also have old swimming injuries and medical concerns, and Danny is knowledgeable and creative for what to to do to avoid further injury. If you are looking to both laugh and be challenged while you are working out, Danny is the perfect trainer for you.

Matt has been my personal trainer for roughly 5 months. In that time, I've lost several inches off of my thighs, stomach, hips, and calves. I am down 12-15 lbs (highest weight versus lowest weight gathered in period measured) I have gained inches in my chest, increased my stamina of workouts, pushed myself harder and gone farther than I've expected. While this doesn't seem like much - I once took a kickboxing class 2-3 days a week for an hour over a year and at most lost 20 lbs. This was over 10 years ago when my metabolism was much higher. I have a different body type and my goals are different, but I know my body and can testify to the positive change I'm experiencing in part due to Matt's intervention. Matt is an extremely well-rounded trainer with over 20 years of experience who exhibits his professionalism and know-how with every instruction he gives and the guidance he bestows. He knows how to masterfully tailor exercises to fit my current state and yet still be able to push me to the next level safely. Matt's workout regime changes from session to session and is never predictable or boring. Matt deploys new workouts and is always up-to-date on the latest fitness trends and and honest about their effectiveness. I consider myself lucky to have met Matt and find a trainer who is skillfully trained in his profession and knows how to apply those skills to affect change. I highly recommend Matt for personal training, nutrition consulting, and/or for professional fitness training services.

    Foresight fitness really took my lifestyle and daily routine into consideration when working with me. I was given easy on the go snacks that I could eat in 10 minutes and meals that still had taste and from places I enjoy everyday! I gained knowledge about portion control and a balanced diet as opposed to restrictions. I was also given a cardio plan that I could easily work into my gym routine. The only thing I would've requested were more check ins and a change up in the meals more often. End results were a total loss of 17.3 lbs in two months! Definitely can't wait to pick back up this fall!

      As a lifelong cynic, smoker and hater of all things athletic, I was less than enthusiastic to join a gym or begin an exercise program at 50+ ..until a guilty conscience and rave reviews from my friends led me to Emily... Her extensive background, knowledge of physiology and experience working with people of all ages, ability levels and limitations along with her warmth and sparkling personality gives her the edge. Whether in a group class or individual training, Emily does her homework and customizes every session to the needs of each participant.. She is able to motivate and challenge us to push our limits while being sensitive to our specific areas of weakness so that we do not become discouraged. She is flexible and creative, constantly changing the routines, combining yoga, Pilates and free weights into each session, incorporating cardio and strength training to maximize results. In just a few weeks, I've seen and felt dramatic improvements in my muscle tone, energy level, balance, endurance and self confidence.. and, most dramatically, my fear of strenuous physical activity:) Emily rocks!

        I am an avid exercise enthusiast and work out at least 4 times per week. Stacey works with me each week and provides a demanding and thoughtful exercise routine focusing on total body fitness. She understands the fitness level of her clients and uses an effective combination of varying exercises (e.g. machines, dumbbells, TRX bands, and cardio-driving exercises) to provide an up-tempo, calorie burning, muscle strengthening workout. From session-to-session, she deploys different exercises to keep each session fresh and interesting. She is organized in her approach and prepared in advance of the session to provide a thorough regiment of exercise covering large and small muscle groups alike. She is careful in working with clients who might be experiencing a muscle pull or joint injury. She places a strong emphasis on proper technique and form while pushing her clients to exert themselves, resulting in a challenging but satisfying training session. Stacey's demeanor is very pleasant and she provides the right blend of positive reinforcement. I highly recommend working with Stacey to improve overall body strength, stamina, and flexibility.

        I think that I need to specify that after numerous diets, programs, advice from expert and non-expert, I have finally found a coach who is listening, available and which takes into consideration many parameters to ensure that everything is in place to succeed, it's not been easy to train almost every morning at 6 am, the daily cardio days, diet and to continue his work with the same consistency, but it is worth it . At the 49 years this is a new departure, a radical change in my sport as well as my personal and professional life, thanks again DAN" -Francisco Rios

          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.
