Sanford is absolutely amazing! He is professional and dedicated and truly cares about his clients and their goals. He is very knowledgeable about exercise/training and the science behind working out. Always showing up on time and never missing a session, he encourages you throughout each workout and pushes you to your limits. I always leave his gym feeling great! He changes up routines, which is great for both your muscles and keeping the workouts interesting. He quickly learns about you as an individual and tailors workouts specific to your needs and likes. He doesn't only train you, but works out WITH you like a workout partner. This not only makes me feel like I can do it, it allows me to learn proper form for each exercise. I have been working out with Sanford for a couple of weeks now and I am already developing strength and definition, which is a goal of mine. You will not be disappointed giving Sanford a call! Not to mention...he plays great music!

I came to Winfrey looking to tone up and I can say without a doubt he has definitely fulfilled that request. I have only been training with him for 12 weeks now and can already feel and see a difference!

Awesome workouts! You don't get stuck doing the same routine each time. Very flexible scheduling to match your needs. One on one training to push you, but not break you. Focus on how to move correctly and not just throw weights. Highly recommend!

Sasha is an amazing trainer and so motivating. Watching her journey motivated me to get in shape myself. I have been doing online training with her for a few months now and I am very pleased with my results. She gave me the tools and knowledge while I put in the work and I cannot be more grateful. The only complaint I have is that she's across the states and I can't train with her one-on-one ;)

Doug helped me out a lot and completely accelerated my progress in the gym by teaching me the most effective way to train. His attitude and commitment to helping his clients is absolutely superb and I would definitely recommend him as a personal trainer. He trained me only one time per week and the results from the training sessions were really incredible. I got so much stronger in the least amount of time. All my family members were impressed. Overall 5 out of 5 excellent!

Kelly encourages and inspires me to work hard and to be as strong and healthy as possible. Because of her commitment, I have not only reached my goal weight but have maintained it for a year and a half. Our training sessions are always fun and interesting; I never know just what she has in store for me, but I can be sure that it's exactly what I need. Kelly has made a huge difference in both my physical and mental health!

Weight loss was the area in which I needed help in. We worked in a gym in Norfolk where he trains for 1-2 hour sessions. His friendly attitude and openness was an immediate sign that he was who I needed to train with. I can be very lazy but Troy pushed me to limits I wouldn't normally take by myself. He was very punctual and that made it easy to set times and stick with them. We discussed goals and he offered words of encouragement to help me to achieve my goal weight by prom/graduation. Nothing went wrong and personally nothing could've been better. I'm grateful for being able to work with him and look forward to the upcoming sessions as well. Thanks Troy

I started training with Mattie a few weeks ago. Our sessions are about 1 hour and she also develops a cardio plan for me to complete each week. She has been doing a fantastic job providing a fitness routine for me while being in the first trimester of pregnancy. She is a knowledgeable personal trainer who is helping me achieve a healthy pregnancy. Not only has she made me feel comfortable but was a great person to talk to during our sessions. I would definitely recommend her as a trainer!

I've worked out with my daughter Keysha Bailey on numerous occasions. She keeps me motivated with my workout schedule. I live in Gloucester, VA so I can't workout with her as much as I like to. She knows her stuff when it comes to fitness and nutrition.

We have been working at this for a few months. My total loss is 31 pounds. I really started seeing results when she told me to commit to three times a week. Then she told me I could really work out a little harder. She makes a clear point it is a nutrition and exercise combination. The best part is she can work with my disabilities and still provide a solid workout.

About

Over the course of my life, physical training has always been one of the ineffable parts of my career as an athlete and a coach. I don't see myself just as a trainer who goes through the basic by laws of training, but I encourage you do things distinctively. My Name is Martin Embry from Jacksonville, Florida. I currently coach at CNU and won two back-to-back championships for Bethune-Cookman University (MEAC conference) in the decathlon. By the end of my senior year, I started training one individual who needed some type of advocacy in losing weight, and by the end of three weeks, he lost 28 pounds. I knew that I had a passion for becoming a personal trainer. I receive my certification in International Sport Science Association. Changing lives is my why. What is yours?

About

I spent 4 years after college working with numerous clients in multiple aspects of wellness, ranging from general health/fitness to sport performance to prenatal/postnatal to running classes. I am an active duty navy stationed in the Norfolk area and looking to help you achieve your goals and transform your lives.

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.
