He helps you to overcome your expectations every day. He also has a vast knowledge about nutrition and training. He likes to share posts with clients about fitness and health. Definitely more that you would expect."

"Karen is an intense ray of sunshine in my dark world of poor eating habits and erratic gym workouts. I found Karen on her Instagram page (@karenfittraining). She responded quickly and we met days later. Karen has a background in sports fitness training which brings a fresh perspective to personal training. She’s funny and easy to work with. I’m not always feeling motivated but Karen helps me persevere to accomplish my goals. What are YOU waiting for? Highly recommend."

"I reached out to Thumbtack because I was finally ready to get motivated with my health and fitness. For too long I’ve been unfit and overweight and knew I didn’t have the knowledge nor understanding of fitness to do this alone so set out to find a personal trainer. One of the other reasons was I was interested in lifting heavy weights (I’d read a lot about it but didn’t have the knowledge or courage to start). I received numerous responses but choose Max for his willingness to tailor his training to my requirements whilst demonstrating a great knowledge for fitness and nutrition in general. I’ve been training with Max 3 times a week for almost 5 months now and I’ve lost both inches and lbs and noticed a difference in my overall health. When I’ve not been able to attend my sessions due to vacation, Max has given me exercises to continue with whilst I’m away. Most recently Max has been teaching me more and more about nutrition, which has certainly been an eye opener when reviewing my own diet. "

"Talon really helped me change my life around and achieve my health and fitness goals! He is super knowledgeable and explains not only the benefit of each exercise, but also the science of it all and how to correctly perform them. He’s also just a great guy to be around, so his training sessions are truly fun. He keeps you wanting to work out more and more! As a freelance actor, I end up traveling around a lot. Talon continued to help me program my workouts even when I wasn’t at my home gym. He kept me honest with myself and motivated to continue a path to a stronger, healthier me. Would recommend 10/10!"

"Where do I even begin?? I've been working out with Brian for going on 9 weeks now and it's awesome. Brian is knowledgeable, personable, and supportive. He works with you one-on-one to customize the workout session to suit both your strengths and weaknesses. Just when you when think things are beginning to get easy he tweaks your routine and steps it up a few notches to keep you motivated and improving. There's simply no excuse to not give him a try. I believe he's the best personal trainer around & his meal plans actually work. 😆 So whatcha waiting for...."

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.
