"I had been dealing with pain and declining health problems for years and had the lucky opportunity to meet Corey Walden and start personal training with him as part of a push to really turn my whole health situation around. With just his personal training alone I was able to break my dependence on weekly massages that I had been getting just to be able to move. With the addition of Neurokinetic Therapy we've really found the sources of my pain and mobility problems, and I'm feeling better and moving better every week! Corey Walden is a crucial part of improving my health and wellness; Corey is very knowledgeable and very easy and fun to work with. I would gladly recommend him to anyone who wants to feel better, move better, and be in better health!"

"Lisa was awesome! I purchased several sessions with her as a gift for my parents for Christmas and they have been so happy with her as a trainer. She has made them feel very comfortable, listened to what they were wanting out of their sessions, and really helped them get back on track with their exercise. Her knowledge in different kinds of strength training, exercise, and stretching has been perfect for them and the convenience of her coming to their house has made all the difference. I would highly recommend Lisa to anyone looking to get back in shape, become more flexible, and have a great time while doing so!"

"I started working with Brittany after I joined the gym in which she used to work at. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but Brittany made it comfortable for me. I started doing one on one training sessions with her, which really made a difference. I went through a rough part of my life this last year, and she supported me from day one. I’m now back training with her, and I couldn’t be happier. She had helped shape me into being in the best shape of my life, and I’m looking forward to being there again."

"Travis is awesome. Although we've only been working out for a short time, I've been impressed by his professionalism, knowledge, and commitment to this work. And what I mean by "this work" is the type of training that I assumed most trainers dreaded, working with someone like me, an out of shape middle aged woman who will never be an elite athlete. But Travis really excels and is passionate about just that, helping people live healthier, fuller lives by getting fit. We work on core strength, coordination, flexibility, and proper form to insure problem areas are addressed first. I can tell by the way Travis talks about different aspects of the way the body works that he knows his stuff and has a passion for leaning more. He's been easy to work with, he can tell when to push me, when to allow me to push myself and when it's time to move to something different. Our workouts vary from day to day as he watches how my body responds to exercises and he adjusts according to what is needed. After just a few weeks, I already feel stronger, more balanced, and just better overall. In addition to being a terrific trainer, Travis is just a great human being. He's authentic, he cares about people, and he's a devoted family man. It's very easy to trust him knowing what a quality guy he is. I'm looking forward to seeing what I can accomplish with him training me."

"Matt has worked with my daughter who plays competitive soccer at a high level. Matt put her on a strength training and speed/agility program, within 3-4 weeks I started to see a difference during practice and games. Her speed increased as well as her ability to body opponents off the ball. This led to her feeling more confident and willing to push herself further. I would highly recommend Matt not only as a trainer but also a role model to young athletes."

"Carlee is fantastic!! She has an incredible knowledge of the body and tailors each workout to your specific goals. The time actually flies by when I work out with her, which is amazing because exercising has been a challenge for me in the past. On top of being excellent at her work, her personality is second to none. She is highly motivational, kind, energetic, and so much fun. I am so grateful I found Carlee and would recommend training with her no matter where you are in your fitness journey, she’s a star!"

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.
