"My experience at Wellfit was amazing! The training and coaching I received here will remain with me throughout my lifespan. In the beginning, I just had a common goal. After 3 months of great coaching and personal training by the Wellfit team, I turned my short term goals into long term goals and never felt better. "

"I hired Ralph for the goal of gaining some weight and learning the tips of not injuring myself while training. Ralph's training started with a information/Starbucks session to understand you goals, your body and shares his training method. During the trainings, Ralph always comes prepared on time, with list of exercises tailored for you. He teaches you the drills and answers questions before actually doing a particular exercise. He also shares free tips and research papers from time to time that pertain to training, keeping the right posture at work and diets. At this moment my Chinese martial arts training demands most of my training time. I would use Ralph's help again when needed in the future. I would also recommend you to have a try!"

"We hired Jason for my daughter who is an NCAA XC & Track athlete. I was a little skeptical that anyone other than a specialized "running" coach would be able to help. It didn't take but one time of meeting with him to see that he is knowledgeable in all forms of physical movement and is a student of the body, mind, and spirit. This is more than just a business to him. His desire to help people live healthy and achieve their fitness goals are unsurpassed. If you hire him, he will give you all that could expect and a lot more. My daughter just finished her first session with him. She is excited ready for more hard work! You will not be disappointed no matter your athletic and/or fitness level. Stop waiting and contact him."

"Shayla has been a Godsend for me! When I first met her I was 213 pounds, never worked out in my life, I ate fast food almost every day, and drank about four cokes a day. I was a ticking time bomb for many serious health conditions. Over the course of 3 months she taught me the importance of what I put in my body and how it really does effect your mood and energy. She provided me with a detailed meal plan tailored to my situation and my body's needs. She started me on supplements that have dramatically improved some deficiencies I was experiencing and helped me regain my energy. She was always attentive to what I was experiencing in my daily life and offered many alternative ways to deal with those issues through natural methods. She has taught me countless body weight workouts to help me lose weight while also strengthening my core and improving my flexibility. I was clueless about working out before I met her and now I can confidently walk into a gym and do my own workout without any confusion or embarrassment. I've lost over 30 pounds in these three months with Shayla, l went from a BMI of 33.4 to 28.2, I'm down 2 dress sizes, and went from size 16 pants to size 12. My relationship with food has changed from living to eat to eating to live. No amount of money could amount to what Shayla has taught me. My life has completely changed for the better and I can't thank her enough for the information, wisdom, and encouragement she has provided me with. I would definitely recommend Shayla to anyone looking to turn their health around. She knows what she is doing and truly has a heart for others. The results and knowledge you gain from training with Shayla make the price you pay more than reasonable. I am extremely grateful for what Shayla has taught me and now have the skills to keep my body perfectly balanced and thriving for the remainder of my life. Thank you Shayla for truly changing my life!"

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.
