"Anthony is simply the best of the best. He has assisted me with diet, nutrition facts and fitness. I'm in my late 40's and feel better ever! I spent years at crossfit and cycling and never achieved the results I've seen with Anthony. His approach isn't just fitness based, it is education based. I have a much better understating of the workouts I am doing and why. Amazing."

"I've been training with Nick for over two years. Nick worked with me on a plan, combining nutritional goals, supplements, weight training and cardio. Over the last two years, he's kept me on target, motivating me to continue to make progress and to track progress on a regular basis. Nick is thoroughly professional, never misses an appointment and is flexible on the rare days when I need to reschedule. He gives his all during every session, motivating me to push toward my limits - but never beyond what I'd feel comfortable with. He takes pride in his client's growth and is personally invested in making every client reach his/her goals."

"After two years of being a stay-at-home parent and not utilizing my gym membership, I sought out personal training. At the time I needed some motivation as it was too easy to "throw in the towel" at the end of the day and relax on the couch. I was unhappy with my body and feeling lethargic daily. Just one month into working with Jeremy I noticed my energy increasing and my partner constantly told me how much happier I seemed. Jeremy, the owner and trainer at NJoy Fitness, is the perfect blend of trainer and life-coach. I've renewed with him several times already and have no plans to quite working with him. In the past, I have had several attempts at personal training and this is BY FAR the BEST and most rewarding experience I have ever had. I am so happy with Jeremy that I have been talking about my experience with everyone I know. Jeremy is patient and supportive as well as absolutely knowledgeable. He is flexible with scheduling- which is a great bonus for my busy family life. He pushes you hard and also recognizes your limitations. Good form and proper technique are more important to him than breaking your body getting in three more reps. I cannot say enough good things about his methodology and energy. If you are on the fence about who to choose as a trainer...trust me, you will be glad you did!"

"Chris listened to my health/flexibility issues (i.e., stiffness in hips from golfing) and instructed me on several different exercises using various equipment to strengthen my gluts/legs/core for better mobility/flexibility. Great to work with a professional trainer who can adapt exercises to a baby boomer who has limited physical strength/endurance. The PGP Fitness Center is a very clean workout facility which has plenty of exercise equipment for someone who now has the time to focus on regaining/rebuilding endurance, strength, and conditioning. Loved the one-on-one trainer/student workout! Thanks! Karen Y."

"I have been training at Ligot Training Systems for 8 months. Before that I tried several gyms and worked out with several trainers but, never felt like I was learning or gaining anything. A friend of mine invited me to try Ligot Systems and I was hooked immediately, the trainers are knowledgeable and very friendly and they make sure to create a workout that fits your needs. I had bad knees due to my years of playing competitive sports and usually that was the reason I will stop working out, but now my knees feel better than ever and working out is always fun. I never thought that I will have so much fun working out or that I will look forward to my next training day! So not only the pain in my knees is gone, I lost over 25 lbs and I'm stronger and faster than before but I have FUN!!!! "

"I worked with Dave on deadlifts, kettlebells, nutrition and pull-ups. I was new to fitness and he taught me a TON about all of these subjects. Dave is fun to work with and knows a lot about fitness and what it takes to achieve goals. I can't recommend him enough!"

"Sean is amazing! Super friendly and a huge wealth of knowledge!! I've been working out for years and years and had several trainers that don't measure up to him. The amount of time and energy that he spends outside of your sessions working on customized meal planning education and training routines incredible."

"Carl is a wonderful trainer! This was my first session with him and I had a great time! I was kind of hesitant as a woman to be alone with a stranger but Carl is super warm and friendly! I felt that he really took the time to listen to me explain where my body is at. I’ve had pain in my upper shoulders for awhile now and was stumbling over my words on how to describe it. Carl was patient and attentive during my ramble and asked followup questions to get a better idea of what was the cause and where the pain was concentrated. During the session we used the equipment and went through a couple of different exercises that worked my shoulders. Carl would give me modifications if something didn’t feel right and made sure to ask me which part of my shoulder each exercise impacted. He even showed me some exercises I can do at home so I can continue to work on my shoulders outside the training room."

"I started with John about 4 months ago, I have not regretted a moment of it. The thing I love the most is that he is punctual and attentive to what the task at hand is. I have worked with many trainers and by far I he is one of the best I have had the pleasure to work with. If you are looking for someone to help you get back into the swing of things or help you shed those extra pounds...John is your guy."

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.
