"I started working out with Zak last August. He's an amazing trainer and coach. I fell in love with fitness thanks to Zak. He keeps me accountable in and out of the gym with my program and nutrition. He's passionate about what he does and it shows through the service he provides. He is down to earth and honest. I drive an hour to workout with Zak. I think that says a lot! If you want results, Zak is your man!"

"Randy worked with my husband, who is a stroke survivor, from May, 2013 until October, 2013. It was a bit different than what a personal trainer normally does. He performed arm and leg stretches, along with teaching him and myself what exercises we could do at home to keep his muscles from tightening up. Randy went above and beyond what was expected by doing research on what would help a stroke patient, since it was outside his normal realm of expertise. They met twice a week at an apartment gym. Randy was always on time and very professional. He is obviously very knowledgeable as a personal trainer and has a great rapport with his clients. We initially hired Randy because of the proximity to our home, his reasonable rates, and his willingness to try something different. Over the course of working with Randy, my husband was able to increase his strength and his flexibility as much as his physical condition allowed. We would definitely work with Randy again and strongly recommend him to anyone! "

"Alix is an excellent trainer. Not only is he knowledgeable about fitness, he listens carefully to understand what your goals are and what limitations you may have, if any. I'm very serious about getting into shape. I asked Alix to push me hard to the point of complete exhaustion where I couldn't go any longer and now I'm seeing results! He will show no mercy but as the saying goes, "no pain, no gain." In the past I've had trainers that don't pay much attention to you, but not Alix. He monitors every movement you make to ensure you are doing the exercises correctly and not injure yourself. He not only trains you, he teaches you. He is also very friendly and easy to talk to. He will answer any questions you might have. I would highly recommend Alix as your personal trainer."

"Andrew is a great trainer. He can help you shape your physique and achieve your personal goals. Workouts ate challenging but always different so you never get bored. Before starting with him I was purely running for exercise. Over the years I lost muscle mass in the wrong places. After 3 months of challenging but worthwhile workouts I am starting to look like an athlete again. The mini muffin top and thigh cellulite have disappeared. I owe it to him. If you are contemplating starting the IAF class you should definitely give it a try."

"If you are serious about making changes - Janelle is the trainer for you! Her knowledge of fitness, muscles - the science of and what they are supposed to do and how you are supposed to be using them...is unsurpassed. She has this intuitive sense to be able to look at you and immediately know what muscle groups aren't working properly for you and are your weaknesses. She is serious about what she does and she doesn't put up with excuses. Don't let her rough exterior fool you though - you show her you're giving it your all, and she'll dive right in giving you her all. I love her workouts and how she sets them up with short bursts of cardio after sets of weights. I really like the compound exercise techniques. She has also been fantastic helping me through rehab training exercises for an injury sustained years ago that I had accommodated all these years by using my body wrong. I am so glad to finally be fixing this and still get a workout. Janelle was born to be in fitness - its in her blood. As a client, sensing that makes all the difference in the world in the type of focus and attention you get in your trainer."

"I've been workout out with Jose about 4-5x per week for over 6 months now and I really love it. I'm the type of person that doesn't really like to waste time and would always give up on the gym because I didn't really know what I was doing and just didn't feel like I was getting anywhere. Since I started with Jose now I can see some changes. He's corrected my form in almost every excercirse which really helps with results, also anytime I ask why we do certain things he has a good explanation. Also does very customized workout plans depending on your goal. To make sure you reach your goals faster he also gives me nutrition tips and keeps me motivated to stay healthy."

"I'm 46 and have had several trainers but it has been a while, so I was very nervous to begin working out again. Landon's professionalism and patience gave me the confidence I needed. He modeled every exercise and pushed just enough through each one. He is very knowledgeable in recommending nutritional meals that enhance my goals."

"I’ve been working with Brian for four years, and he has kept my training regime fresh with new elements and equipment. He is very knowledgeable. He has helped me work through several injuries from sports I participate in. He has been very accommodating with makeups when either of us has missed a normal session. Or he has provided me with workout routines I can do on my own. He is also a good conversationalist, which is important when you spend this much time with someone."

I have already got an estimate to have additional work done and can’t wait until I get the money for them to do my next project! I would definitely recommend them to anybody, even my own mom!"

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.
