"After many years of being active but not knowing what best works were for my body, counting calories, never really losing body fat, and wondering what exactly the right eating plan was I was referred by a friend to Amanda. I had a wonderful experience with her personal training sessions. She is down to earth and unlike any other fitness coach I have met. She was realistic, organized, punctual, readily available, encouraging, flexible, and informative. Amanda knows her stuff. There were times in the beginning, when I started eating the way she suggested and I started freaking out feeling like it was unmanageable but she would talk me through it and I came through the experience with a much better understanding of food. I finally, after 44 years, feel at peace with food without tracking and counting calories. No longer do I obsess over certain foods. Amanda teaches you what your body needs (and it isn’t cutting entire food groups out). She taught me awesome weight lifting exercises and body strength exercises too. What she taught me I can use at home or any gym. She didn’t lead me on trying to hook me into buying more sessions – she simply taught, gave me copies of what she taught, and moved on to the next session. She explained a lot about stretching, taking care of your body after workouts, and more. Amanda delivered everything promised and more. I walked away with a new understanding of how to fuel my body, without going hungry, and what the best workouts are. She kicked my butt in the gym but was encouraging the entire time – she made me want to push myself but not in a mean way. Her gym is awesome – everything you need to get fit. I can’t say enough good things about Amanda. I would highly recommend her. She is very personable and friendly yet professional. Definitely a good personal trainer for any age or gender. She knows her stuff and will get you in shape if you listen to her and work hard. I am down several lbs, clothes are looser, feeling good about myself, getting strong, and no longer obsessing over counting calories or the latest fad diet. She has given me sanity in the health department and I can’t put a price tag on that. "

"I was treated with respect and yet his desire is for you to reach your goal. Steve also was encouraging and guided. He was avaliable by phone or email. He throughly got my information that pertaining to health and excersize. He followed up with me at least 1 or 2 times by email or phone. I would recommend Steve for training and health habits or concerns. He has a kind and caring character. Diane Simons"

"I love this place. Just finished a three-month trial period. Taking a break because I've got too much on my plate this month and I'm struggling with sleep deprivation, but I hope to be back as soon as I finish a major project at the end of the month. At the start of the year, I was looking to shed some holiday weight. I got in touch with Curt. He was super helpful and responsive. He listened to my circumstances and really worked with me to make membership possible. I've been working out 2-3 times per week with Jared, who is both a sweetheart and an ass-kicker! The workout are challenging, my muscles are always sore and the company is awesome. Seriously, I never realized the gym could be so fun. Ligot caps classes at 6 individuals. That intimate environment allows Jared to pay a lot of attention to each person. He's great at tailoring our workouts according to our skill level. As for the exercises, they work out the entire body. The flow and repetition will make you sweat. Lifts, squats, stretches, cardio -- there's a bit of everything in each workout. I always leave these sessions feeling awesome. I highly recommend Ligot Training Systems to people of all skill levels. These guys are all heart AND hard work. I'll be back."

"More than a personal trainer Adrienne taught me how to run but also shared with me how to be better to myself all in the context of having FUN! Wanting to improve my triathlon performance my main goal in working with Adrienne was to improve my running capabilities. She taught me form, cadence, pace work and in the course of our training my speed has improved tremendously. But she also taught me balance and peace. To be at peace within myself, to be as kind to myself as I am to others. Truly the best coach/trainer I have ever worked with!"

"Let me tell you about my experience with Marinello Fitness. I contacted Daniel approximately 6 months before I was due to go to Navy Boot Camp. I was 30 years old and at 195lbs, I was overweight. I hadn't really worked out very much in my life, and so I wasn't used to doing so and as such I was very unfit. I couldn't even do five push ups and I certainly couldn't run down to the end of the a football field without being out of breath about half way there. To be able to be boot camp ready I had to lose some pounds, be able to do more push ups and sit ups as well as run 1.5 miles. I had to be able to compete with 18 years old who were fresh out of high school. It was a very intimidating prospect for my future and it left me very anxious. After contacting Daniel, he promptly got back in touch with me and after first assessing my current level of fitness, he came up with a great work out plan to help me reach my goals and that met my budget restraints. The plan was for five days a week of personal training and was not overly difficult, and he was careful to help me make sure that I didn't injure myself. He also gave exceptional advice on diet and nutrition that was healthy, and would still enable me to have delicious food. Throughout the entire process Daniel was never judgmental and was very patient, pleasant, encouraging, and always cared about my long term success, he is an amazing motivator. By the end of my time time working with Daniel I ended up being able to reach all of my goals, losing more than 20lbs, and not only meeting, but exceeding the requirements to pass Navy Boot Camp. I was able to do more sit-ups than any of the 18 year-olds that were there! If you ever have the privilege to work with Daniel, I suggest you take it. He will help you reach all of your goals in a way better than anyone else can. I also know for a fact that Daniel is always getting big dollar offers from oil rich Sheikhs in the Middle East to help them with their fitness and their golf game, so make use of him while you still have him."

"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 is a highly competent trainer. She has excellent knowledge of human anatomy and kinesiology and applies that to training her clients. An added bonus is that Hannah also trains, so she knows the challenges and rewards of what she asks her client to do. She will take you from where you are, beginner to advanced or in-between, and adapt your training routine to suit your limitations, abilities and goals. Because Hannah is a stickler for proper technique, I never have been injured while training with her. I have trained with Hannah for one year and intend to continue. She is the best!"

"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."

"Alex is the first fitness trainer that I've ever worked with. I wanted to work with a trainer to help my body to heal after an injury. He is knowledgeable, attentive and certified to work with people with injuries due to his bachelor degree in Exercise Physiology and advanced certification through the American College of Sports Medicine. He knows your limitations and doesn’t push you out of your comfort/ability zone to the point that you would injure yourself. It really helps me to have someone to give me direction, check on my form, but also challenge me to do more than I would do on my own. He guides me through what I should be doing with detailed instruction. He is also flexible in scheduling on those occasions I need to make a change due to health issues. I have had an excellent training experience with Alex. I recommend him highly to everyone who might be considering personal training. He is also reasonably priced compared to large fitness."

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.
