I started working out with Jerell at a time I really need some motivation on the fitness front. I gave my requirements to Jerell specifying how my sedentary lifestyle made it challenging to stay fit. Jerell was highly responsive and tailored his workout plan based on my level and requirement. His plan isolated various muscle groups while also incorporating cardio workout. I started by working out twice a week with him later transitioning to thrice a week. Within a month, I could already see results in terms of an increase in my stamina as well as muscle definition. Working out with him has alleviated my back problems and overall I feel stronger now. I rate Jerell highly as a trainer for both his variety and consistently high quality of workout.

When looking for a personal trainer I wanted to find someone who would take a personal interest in my success and push me beyond what "I" think my capabilities are. Ricky does this and more. He has a great workout program but he goes above and beyond to make sure your nutritional needs are being met as well. In less than three months I saw a significant change in the way I looked and felt. What I love most about Ricky's program is the mix of exercises. For example, Ricky will use boxing as cardio vs. running on the treadmill, he will mix in the ab work so you won't be overwhelmed doing them all at once, and he uses a mix of body, machine and free weights to keep your body guessing! Not to mention, if you are an athlete like myself he adds an entirely different realm of workouts in the mix. Ricky is by far one of the best trainers in the business!

I started out with Amy as one of her first clients wanting to tone, but not necessarily to lose any weight which I think would be harder then getting a person who just wants weight loss. Within a month of 2 days a week with her and me doing some cardio I lost 2lbs and several inches. 2 inches in my waist! I lost everywhere and felt incredible about, myself and not flabby. I have been working with Amy on and off since the beginning. Her drive, her motivation, and simply being the best at what she does is why I keep going back. I would recommend her as a personal trainer to anyone. Not only is she driven, she is very knowledgeable and will help you with any struggle you may have, not to mention reasonably priced!!! If you are looking to make a change in your body, AMY ATHERTON is the one to call!!

Jonathan is the epitome of an excellent personal trainer. His expertise in physiology and nutrition have provided a solid foundation for helping me achieve physical fitness. I can tell Jonathan truly cares about each of his clients as an individual from the way he has customized my workout and nutrition plans specifically for me. Everything from how to balance cardio with strength training, how to adjust my feet position for maximum power during a squat, what to eat each week I'm trying to lose fat, and what to eat each week I'm gaining muscle mass. No doubt, I'm in the best shape of my life. Thanks, Jonathan!

Brady is an exceptionally accomplished personal trainer. I've worked out with him for more than a year, and I'm the better for it - both physically and mentally. For me, he uses circuit-training which works every part of the body, and he also develops routines I can do on my own in tandem with cardio. He asks questions and listens to understand your overall fitness goals and then tailors a program just for you. He also has deep nutritional knowledge to help guide your dietary plan. He's personable, and I always look forward to working out with him.

Darren has been my personal trainer for about 10 months now and I am so grateful that my wife discovered his profile on Thumbtack. I wholeheartedly endorse him for anyone considering embarking on a new fitness goal or even for seasoned athletes looking for a jolt if their existing routine has gotten stale. Darren not only excels in the physical aspect of training, but he also brings a balanced mental component to our sessions. As anyone can attest who's recently started to workout after a long layoff, the hardest part is starting. What they also don't tell you is that maintaining your workouts is probably the next hardest hurdle to tackle. But that's where Darren really shines. Under Darren's tutelage, I've become accountable to myself and I really look forward to my sessions to see what new exercises we'll incorporate or to try and beat my weightlifting bests. I would classify Darren's workout management as 'adaptive'; that is, he can take what he's given in terms of available equipment, or if the gym is too crowded on a given day, and craft a workout routine that is challenging and never boring (he takes what's he's given and makes lemonade from lemons). I think that boredom is responsible for more broken fitness promises than any other factor. With Darren as my trainer, I've never been bored and almost a year later I don't think we've ever repeated a workout! With Darren as my trainer I've been steadily increasing my strength gains while steadily shedding excess weight and improving my cardio fitness. Darren also provides nutritional counseling, rehabilitative training, and he will travel to your home or business for your workout needs. He really is my 'health and fitness concierge,' and anyone considering personal training services shouldn't pass up the opportunity to train with Darren. Robert N.

I've been training with Alan for about 4 months now. Since I've started I've lost about 25 pounds and 6 percent body fat and I'm still going strong! He's amazing and he constantly pushes me during our sessions to be better. By training with him and sticking to your meal plan and cardio the weight just falls off, and he also helps you tone your body. I already feel a lot better about myself and I'm so glad I chose to train with crunch time personal training!!!

If you are looking for the perfect personal trainer…that would be Mr. Zee. Zee will provide you with workouts that will give you the quick results that you are looking for while making your exercise program so much fun. His workouts incorporate strength training, cardio, balance exercises and flexibility in a variety of ways so that they never become boring. Zee’s knowledge, professionalism and credentials are so very impressive, but his personal attention and his cheerful, caring manner are unbeatable. His energy and enthusiasm seem to be contagious as he coaches me to do my exercises properly and cheers me on to meet my fitness goals. Zee is an absolute delight to work with, and I highly recommend him. He is a fantastic person and an excellent trainer who will design your exercise program to meet your specific fitness goals. I know that I could never obtain the same results without Zee’s guidance, encouragement and support. Thank you, Zee, for accompanying me on my journey to become a happier, healthier and stronger person.

Carlos is a great Muay Thai coach and personal trainer. He breaks down his extensive knowledge into beginner intermediate and advanced techniques. I highly recommend Raging Bull if you are looking for some serious cardio or want to improve coordination while learning some Muay Thai techniques.

Working with IYCYM fitness has been such a breath of fresh air from what I am normally use to doing for fitness. I have always been that girl who does long durations of cardio, eat clean all week, binge on the weekend, feel guilty, do a cleanse, back to intense cardio to make up for it and the cycle goes on... and I was wondering why I am not seeing results even though I exercise and eat clean majority of the time (Yikes!). I came to Laura with this problem and was so ready for a change! She has been wonderful with letting me vent, teaching me about macros, and demonstrating how to incorporate weights into my daily exercise all over long distance (if that isn't impressive I don't know what it!). She makes herself available for any thing you need, loves getting your questions, and does a great at job of tailoring the workouts and diet to your specific needs (it isn't just a one size fits all to them.. they take the time to make a specialized plan). I have known Laura/ Zach for a few years now and they are the definition of fitness. This is not a job they clock out from this is their lifestyle and they have turned their passion into an amazing empire to help others. AMAZING team to be apart of you won't find more invested and dedicated coaches. If you get the opportunity to work with either of them one-on-one they will make sure you reach your goals no matter what stage you are at! Xo

      Where do I even began? When I first met Travis I was currently working out mostly cardio, but was wanting to incorporate weights. I was unsure how to do this, but with his knowledge(and patience I might add) I was able to understand why this was an important part of a workout. Travis is a great trainer because he knows how to motivate you and push you all the way to your last rep. He knows how to mix things up so you don't get bored and lose intrest. So if your looking for a professional and knowledgeable trainer Travis is your guy!

      I am 65 yrs old, overweight, very out of shape, with joint problems in shoulder, wrists, hands and knees that have required Edward to be creative, and flexible with my workouts to ensure no additional stress is placed on those weak joints, yet still provide excellent cardio, and core strengthening, while improving balance and stamina. He is a great motivator and works you hard, but makes it interesting by throwing in additional activities like light boxing, yoga positions, and Pilates.

      I know that I would never have achieved the level of fitness and strength I have, if not for the personal attention given in my training sessions with Tony. She is passionate, focused and an outstanding master of her craft, incredibly strong with a treasure trove of health and fitness knowledge in weight training and cardio drills, among other things. I have been training with Tony for over a year and have seen amazing results. Her level of training is that of a pro athlete and always very challenging. I have more energy, my balance and flexibility have improved immensely and I've got great new muscles. If you are serious about changing your life for the better, Tony will lead you every step of the way. I would recommend her in a heartbeat, having met and trained with other trainers in the Houston area.

      I worked with Brian for 3 months last year. I was looking to learn some Kickboxing/MMA moves and to just get into better shape for a guy that was 60 years old. He worked my butt off! But, I saw improvement in my body, by blood pressure went down, and I was very pleased with the work that we did together. If I hadn't moved away from the area we would still be having our sessions!

      I have been working out twice a week with Lauren for a few weeks. She is encouraging, and motivated me to do my best. As someone who doesn't know much about weights or gym equipment, aside from cardio, I finally feel like I belong at the gym and can make progress.

          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.
