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 have been training with Winfrey for awhile now and I can say at age 44, I'm in the best shape I've ever been in! He has designed workouts that are specific to my needs and he also helped me recover from a major shoulder surgery! I'm far from where I want to be, however, he has helped me lose over 20 pounds and I've gone from a solid size 12/14 to a size 8. If you are ready to meet your health, fitness and nutrition goals, Winfrey can help get you there! He is a genuine person who is eager to help you feel better! I will be a client until the day he closes his doors:) Thank You Winfrey

I was only able to work with Brian for a few weeks before having to take a break from training, but boy did I see changes in just that short amount of time! I was so nervous to start working with a PT but Brian made me feel very comfortable about the decision I made and proved very quickly that he can work with any body type. I can't wait to be able to continue training, knowing I'm in great hands!

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!

Angela is best and I saw the significant results after we started the training. We use to train 2 days a week from may of 2016 and I'm very disappointed that she has to move away to different place. She custom designed a meal plan and workout sets for me and that helped me a lot. Also, she is very good at motivation and pushing the thresholds to improve the endurance and agility training.

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!

I think one of the best things is how comfortable Joe makes you feel starting out and then through out training. He is very encouraging and supportive, he helps you modify exercises if you need to for your individual ability so anyone can work out. The workouts are addicting because the are always different and challenging. You will definitely get results if you train with Joe!

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!

I love this class and working with Coach Lei. Every week is different and fun. She finds ways to make working out not such a chore while still making you sweat!!! When class is over you’re both exhausted and sad. She’s also very flexible when it comes to personal training and personal goals. I can’t say enough about my experience over the past year with Da Firma. We (myself and my children) love being part of this “family”

I’ve been working with Mattie for 2.5 months. I came with a few persistent injuries wanting to strengthen and push myself. Each workout is fresh and creative to not agrivate my injuries and she actively adapts workouts to the days when my knees or back aren’t having it. I highly recommend hiring Mattie for any training needs.

I was initially referred to No-Bull Training as part of a physician-directed weight loss program. The No-Bull Training team developed a customized training plan based on my unique situation and physical challenges. My husband decided to join me when he saw how the program worked and how excited I was about training. The trainers take the time to educate us regarding any questions we have on goals, diet, or the training program. They remain mindful of injuries and ensure their program does not exacerbate, but helps rehab the condition. With open communication, we can trust that the No-Bull trainers will help ensure we do not hurt ourselves (sometimes despite my husband's efforts). And most important for daily motivation, No-Bull makes training fun! It is clear the team truly cares about the wellbeing and success of their clients, whatever the client's goal!

I have been exercising with Elena Viada of Atlantis Personal Training for 8 years. " I used to suffer from Fibromyalgia…I feel much better and have greater stamina since I've been training with Elena. She motivates and helps me feel good about myself"

About

I implement my yoga training into personal sessions. I thoroughly believe that if a lasting lifestyle change is to happen it is created day to day, moment by moment by working from a state of mind that is aware and pulls from the strength and health one already has to build a solid practice of right decision making and action. The no pain, no gain philosophy is not where I work from- I don't slave drive clients to fight for strength that is always on the horizon. We work from a place of building and growing on what strength is already there.

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 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 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 kickboxing?

Kickboxing is a type of martial art whose basic moves are widely practiced in personal and group fitness regimens. In combat kickboxing, two competitors fight using four points of contact — both hands and both feet — unlike traditional boxing, where competitors are allowed to use their hands. In competitive kickboxing, opponents must remain standing, and no fighting can occur on the mat or ground. Kickboxing has its roots in Muay Thai and other ancient martial arts. Some elemental moves from kickboxing include roundhouse kicks, back kicks, hooks, uppercuts and more.

Modern group fitness kickboxing is practiced in gyms and workout studios across the country. It draws its moves from combat kickboxing, but instead of fighting with an opponent, participants perform jabs, crosses, punches and kicks in instructor-led, choreographed routines set to music. Personal trainers also incorporate kickboxing moves into workout routines, spending time punching and kicking the bag. These strength-building moves, mixed with high-intensity intervals, boost heart rate and increase strength.

Is kickboxing good exercise?

Kickboxing is great exercise. It works your whole body and really gets your heart pounding. Kickboxing combines upper- and lower-body movements like roundhouse kicks and uppercut punches that boost calorie burning. The type of kickboxing you do will determine how much exercise you get. Kickboxing training that takes place in a martial arts studio will involve kicking and punching a sandbag or sparring with a competitor, both of which will sharply increase the amount of exercise you’ll experience in a kickboxing session. Comparatively, a study by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that women doing group fitness cardio kickboxing burned between 6.45 and 8.3 calories per minute, or approximately 350-450 calories burned during an hour-long class. This is roughly what you can expect to burn with jogging or similar exercise, but ACE says that cardio kickboxing offers the added benefits of increased strength and flexibility, sharper reflexes, and improved coordination. Whether you’re training to fight competitively, learning kickboxing as a form of self-defense, or taking cardio kickboxing at your local gym, you’ll get a full-body workout with positive health benefits.
