"I started working with Andie back in October of 2012. Then I was 40lbs overweight and completely out of shape. I had never been to a personal trainer before, and I can tell you at first I was terrified. However, once I met Andie she totally put me at ease and totally changed my perception on personal trainers. Andie cares about her clients and pushes you to be the best YOU possible. I'm now down 35lbs, almost to my goal weight, and have toned up all over. People I haven't seen in months have been complimenting me and asking how I was able to lose so much weight and tone up, and my answer is always Andie! Without her I'd probably be lost in some mainstream gym with no clue as to what I was doing. Andie provides you with a reasonable meal plan, which will surprisingly become your normal lifestyle, and pushes you to your maximum potential on every visit. She is extremely knowledgeable in weight training and food portioning. Her system allows you to lose the inches and weight in a healthy way so that you're not starving or denying yourself of some guilty pleasures. Not only will you develop new habits, but you'll take care of yourself in a way you never thought possible. I can honestly say that working with Andie has changed my life in more ways than one and all for the better. So, if you're truly looking to change your ways, get in shape and become the best YOU possible then DEFINITELY go to Andie. Trust me, you won't regret it. -Katelyn "

"When most people write a review about a personal trainer they talk about how much weight they lost and that's it. This review of N oel Is different because I gained so much more. Did I lose weight? Yes. But am I as skinny as I want to be? No. . And that's my fault. What I have gained by having Noel as my personal trainer is this. 1. I am in shape.I no longer get winded climbimg steps. Due to some age issues with a member of My family carrying a wheelchair is no longer an issue. I can do more situps And pushups than I ever thought possible. My balance has improved tremendously. .I always hated doing balance exercises until I broke my ankle and leg recently. Only then did I realize how much Noels balance exercises really mattered. 2. Most of all I am off all medication. 6 years ago I had heart surgery and had to take metoproprolol. After work with Noel for several months My cardiac condition improved so much that no medication is required. 3. With Noel I gained a sense of self worth. If you are the fat chick like me (I am over 200 lbs) I'm sure you've run into trainers who do not want to work with you or hsve you in class. Because a fat chick slows down the rest of the class. I have NEVER gotten that feeling with Noel. She encourages you to do your best and tells you you aredoing well evenif You can do 1 burpee. 4.Noel pays attention and I mean really pays attention. When someone in her class needed a modification she works with that person one on one to develop an exercise that works for them. If your form is off she will make a point of reshowing you the exercise in the correct form. Afraid of something like I am with TRX? Noel does it with me encouraging me all the way and doing it at My speed. 5.classes are different every day and they aren't boring. Are they hard and challenging? You betcha! But the classes are geared to be a challenge to yourself and your ability whatever that is. I can honestly say I never know what the next class may bring. That's part of Noels unique technique. Never dull always changing always challenging. 6. Noel makes you WANT to work out. Obviously I can't work out Right now and I'm feeling bummed about it because I truly love Noels classes. I have already told my orthopedic Dr that I want Noel to help me rebuild My ankle and leg strength when things have healed. Noel TAKES the time o know each and every one of her clients. I really wanted to write this review for Noel because I truly believe in her ability. . So much so that if you have any questions you are free to contact me. Give Noel serious consideration. You won't be sorry! "

"Working with Jai was the turning point that I needed for my life. I used to be active as a college athlete with dreams of playing professionally, but end stage kidney failure ended those hopes. I was very discouraged, lost all hope that I could regain a sense of wholeness physically because I was limited. Years later I was blessed to receive a kidney transplant, but one medications that I was on increased my weight dramatically. I knew that there was something that needed to be done but I needed guidance. I went to the gym, but I was apprehensive due to all of my medical limitations. So I decided to get help and that is when I contacted Jai. The greatest thing with training with him is that he customized a specific routine according to my limitations that where I could see benefit to my body. Some trainers I observed ignore the status of their clients and try to push them into activity which would leave individuals like myself, discouraged and with the risk of getting hurt, but Jai LISTENS. He has such a unique way of challenging you through his creative methods of training and believe me... YOU WILL WORK! So don’t expect the experience to be a cakewalk. I love that can contact him for any of my nutrition needs and the cool thing is that he finds ways to make my nutrition work with my meds! His willingness to be available for his clients really impresses me. Well, as far as testimonials go, I came to him weighing 408 and now I’m 39 pounds lighter, while regaining my functional strength! I have more weight to lose, but I will get there. So to all that want to be a part of the Jai Hyler Project, get ready to work with one of my the most encouraging. energetic and passionate people on the planet! He will turn your project into a masterpiece!"

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.

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.

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.
