"These boot camp classes will challenge your strength and endurance, build your self-confidence, never leave you bored, and give you a supportive network of other people who have a common goal of feeling fit. As a traveling nurse, I work for 3 months in different areas of the country. I’ve done boot-camp-ish workouts on my own to online videos, and I’ve had gym memberships, but joining a class is by far the most motivating way for me to exercise and a great way to meet people in a new area! Upon moving to Tumwater, I googled nearby bootcamp classes, sent out some emails, and immediately received a welcoming and detailed reply from Amanda Price-Salazar, inviting me to try out a class at Edge Fitness. I loved it, and it happened to be really close to my apt, so now I look forward to biking to every workout! Amanda offers lots of membership options with great prices, and you can drop into any class (offered 5 times a week). This flexibility was key for my participation, because my schedule is different every week. Amanda and the other trainers are super knowledgeable, have great energy, encourage you, push you hard, teach you how to use different equipment, and emphasize good form so you don’t hurt yourself. I’m sad to be leaving these classes in a week for my next job assignment, because it’ll be hard to find a class and trainers as awesome as this."

"I would consider myself a pretty serious fitness nut and have worked out with trainers for over 15 years. I can say, by far, this is the most effective and fun workout ever. Cardio - yep, resistance - yep, strength, core, and balance - yep. Small group setting with individual attention. Effective and fun - hard to beat. You will be amazed at the results without the hurt. But you will work hard!"

"Adrienne has done an excellent job as my personal fitness trainer. She is supportive of my fitness efforts and has worked with me to develop a regular program combining walking, strength building exercises, and stretching exercises that fit into my current life style. Weekly we review my previous week's activities, the impact they had on my body, etc. and make adjustments as necessary. She is flexible in scheduling our joint sessions when my schedule changes due to my job. She is prompt at arriving for our joint sessions, communicates about additional fitness activities during the week, and sends me drawings illustrating how to do some of our exercises to assist me at home."

"I trained with the supervision of Daniel Marinello for upwards of 2 months. The time spent with Dan in the gym was nothing short of a life change for me, where he pushed and coached me mentally and physically to better myself. He always had professional and scientific advice on which exercises to do and never hesitated to answer any of my questions. Of all the great things to say about Dan, his attention to detail, work ethic, and encyclopedic knowledge of the body stood out as his best qualities as my trainer. A trainer, a coach, and a friend - Dan is without a doubt the best physical trainer I have had in my life. "

"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."

"Hannah’s no-nonsense approach to training is perfect for those who are serious about reaching their fitness goals. She is attentive to individual needs, not only able to provide guidance not just in the gym, but at the table too with a customized nutrition plan to compliment workouts. Hannah is meticulous in perfecting form, while also pushing to bust through plateaus with varied workouts to attack each muscle group. At the same time, she is mindful of any injuries one may have, and is never stumped for an alternative way to get the same workout in. Respectful, yet direct, she will keep you accountable for what you put into the gym without completely destroying your soul, encouraging you to dig deeper to push out that one extra rep, or rally for that last set to make it the best set. If you’re looking for the perfect balance in a trainer, you just found her."

"Matt uses innovative products and strives to tailor each workout according to the needs my son, Sebastian has. Sebastian is 18, with sensory issues and I have been amazed at his progress. Matt is working with Sebastian to strengthen his non-dominant side, his core, vestibular and proprioception. Each week, Matt has a lack to keep him interested and on track doing their work out. Sebass has discovered that he really enjoys boxing and says it's his favorite part of his work outs. Matt is fun, and is a great encourager. Sebastian says it's like working out with a friend."

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.
