"I am not one of Sam's clients, but another personal trainer who has been in the business for a decade. I have had the pleasure to watch Sam build up his business and have fun doing it. He always has a smile on his face and is great with his clients of all different ages. I highly recommend him as I am booked up and feel very confident sending clients his way who I am not able to work with. "

"Jeff is a great personal trainer who takes the time to research specific exercises for each of his clients. For me I was recovering from a significant disk injury and Jeff was able to come up with personal training workout plans that helped strengthen other muscle groups while my back was still recovering yet. I was worried about keeping a good form with all of my exercises and he was there to point out when certain muscles fatigued and correct my form as needed. He definitely has tough love when it comes to pushing clients to their max, but does so professionally and in a fun manner. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who is new into personal training or someone who does not know what they are doing in the gym. Thanks Jeff!!!"

"I cannot begin to describe how amazing seeing Jai has been for my health! I’m a active 32yr old female with an autoimmune disease. I have seen nutritonists, specialty doctors, personal trainers....you name it I’ve given it a try. I saw progress with each professional but each left me with either a new problem or with lifestyle changes that were not for me. With the nutritionist I had a super strict elimination diet...yes it worked but messed with my metabolism and left me with low energy. I saw a rheumatologist who put me on multiple medications....yes these worked but who wants to be on prescription drugs and again left me with low energy. Jai finally helped to pull every aspect of my life into a balance that is maintainable! Not just treating one aspect of my health but everything. I’m eating a ton of food, loosing weight/gaining muscle, my energy level is amazing, my mental clarity has improved drastically. I finally feel healthy. I’m actually off of my medications and most supplements (except for the basics - vitamin, fish oil, etc). Jai listens unlike any other trainer I’ve ever worked with. He finds your weak spots, pushes you and challenges you both mentally and physically. He helps push just enough to help promote change without stressing out your body and causing other issues. (Which I have found is the key when dealing with other health concerns....to much stress of any kind and you can end up with a severe flare up). Jai is always listening and constantly changing as your needs and sterengths change throughout the program. He is not a one size fits all trainer. My husband who had totally different goals and experiences saw Jai as well...he leaned out, built muscle, stopped living off of protein powders and supplements, he now has the tools to be more efficient in the gym and to lead an even healthier lifestyle. Jai is knowledgeable and is constantly expanding his educational background. He lives the lifestyle he preaches. Best investment I have ever made for my health and wellness! I cannot day enough good things about Coach Jai. If you show up mentally ready to listen and put in the work he will change how you look at nutrition and working out!"

"Dylan isn't the typical "personal trainer" who does his job to make money off of people and "wishes to see them succeed" but wants to keep them as clients for the money so badly that he makes them depend on him forever. Dylan is knowledgeable and uses his extraordinary techniques and incredible daily growing knowledge to set up all of his clients for success. He makes the clients independent and teaches them how to make the lifestyle changes they need to be successful in their goals for the rest of their life without needing a personal trainer for the rest of their life."

"I've gained some 25 pounds over the past year due to bad eating habits and lack of exercise. Finally I decided to look up a personal trainer online. I received quotes from few personal trainers in my area, but Andie's profile stood up, she sounded very passionate about her job and genuinely interested in her clients. Also, I considered her experience and knowledge as a body builder being a huge plus. I've had already 4 training sessions with her and I'm loving it! She is very sweet, understanding, knowledgeable and motivating. I'm really impressed how dedicated she is, she makes me feel important, created custom meal plan for me and of course, exercise program. Andie always finds time to answer my questions, even encourages me to ask them, despite of her busy schedule. She is a great professional but an awesome good-hearted person as well."

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.
