"I've been training under Cody for nearly 3 months and have been exceptionally happy with my results. As someone who was already active, fit and healthy, I had very different goals than the standard "I want to lose weight" plan. Before we began any sort of training, Cody sat down with me to understand my specific goals. Having exercised and lived an active lifestyle since my teens, played college sports, etc. I had found myself in a rut, performing the same, uninspired exercises and routines for years. Upon talking, we identified deficiencies in my functional strength, balance and flexibility, and Cody worked from there when developing an exercise program that was both dynamic and challenging. Personal training is not transactional in that a client pays money and the problem goes away. Instead, it is a doubling down in investing in oneself - this is where Cody has been most beneficial. He's challenged me to take on exercises I would have never considered or written off previously. He's pushed me to lift heavier or push harder than I thought I was capable of. He's dared me to take try things completely out of my comfort zone. I was presented all these while constantly receiving encouragement and positive affirmations. Most importantly, Cody has been instrumental in helping me see myself in a different, positive light. Instead of focusing on my failings, he has encouraged me to work with my strengths. Through that process, I've come to a better understanding and acceptance of myself and learned to really appreciate my human machine and all that it can accomplish. We only have one body for this journey, so it's best we take care of it."

"Austin, Texas maintains definition of a saturated yoga and wellness market, which can make it difficult for one to really discover the best-fit teachers/classes. Aimee not only strikes a wonderful balance between grounding, challenging and calm...but also is able to titrate these qualities to her clients, weaving every class and workout with a palpable love for what she does. I can't recommend working or working out with Aimee enough and would follow her with my mat to any corner."

"I have been on the search for a personal trainer for a long time, and with Chris I definitely found one that will help me reach my fitness and nutrition goals. As a P90X, Insanity, and Body Beast Grad, I consider myself to be in good shape. I just didn't see the results in my body as I would have liked. I was nowhere I wanted to be, I had definitely been stuck in a plateau for the past couple of months. I hit a point where I was continually going through the motions of working out, but getting absolutely nothing out of it. Then on Thanksgiving, as I ate my second serving of whatever it was, I put down my plate and realized my lack of a nutrition plan was not going to get me anywhere. So I contacted Chris for my FREE evaluation session. After I came in, he broke down what I was going to need to do and change about my current workout situation. I saw he was determined and interested in helping me achieve my goals. At this point I realized that working out at home would no longer benefit me as I've done all I could by myself. What I needed is to go to the next step and get with a trainer who knew what they were doing, and could help me learn what I was doing in the process. At an affordable rate, I was able to get training sessions, a customized meal plan, and a training plan laid out for me. In the short time I've been with Chris, I've already seen some significant changes in my body in the direction that I want it to go. Chris has been nothing but helpful, and accessible as I constantly have questions on form, my meals, and etc. In addition to having Chris as my personal trainer he has improved my form incredibly. The at home programs I was used had not necessarily enforced good form 100%. The improvements I have made with my form have definitely helped my growth and progress as I continue to step into the gym. Everyone's goals are different, and Chris customizes a plan completely for you. So whether you are looking to gain mass/muscle, lose weight and tone, or just start moving you should definitely give Chris a call and talk to him about becoming your Personal Trainer."

"I’ve been working out with Daniel for the last year or so, off and on. I love the gym and the family feel, everyone says hi and goes out of their way to give advice or answer questions. Daniel takes the time to listen to your goals, and works with you to find a workable/realistic plan, and then holds you accountable to that plan. Both Daniel and Michelle make themselves available in the gym AND at home by phone/text, and have become friends as well as my gym family/trainers. I was at my previous gym for years, but left after my goals shifted, and Metroflex is now my second home (my happy place). 🙂"

"Tim has been an exemplary trainer for myself covering anything from martial arts to weights. He has been adaptable to my fitness interests and I always feel better after seeing him. He's an energetic personality that will try to make the sessions both fun and effective. I currently have a good bit of weight melting off as a result of training with Timothy Collins and I always feel jazzed up after seeing seeing him. He's detail oriented with the training and genuinely cares for his clients. I've focused mostly on martial arts but he's very good at increasing your body's balance, strength, and functionality. I hope if you give him a try you will have a similar experience to myself. He's a cool dude :)"

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.
