Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

How much does a personal trainer cost near me?

Expect to pay between $35 and $90 per hour for a personal trainer near you. The length of the session, as well as the number of sessions you book in advance, will have an impact on the price. You can often get lower prices per session by booking more of them. Group training also tends to be less expensive than one-on-one training, as is going to the gym instead of having the trainer come to meet you. Trainer certification is also a factor — trainers with more certification are likely to charge more.

It's important to do your research and get cost estimates from several personal trainers near you before you hire anyone.

How often should you see a personal trainer?

How often you should see your personal trainer depends both on your budget and your fitness level. If you’re new to the exercise routine, maybe start with one to three visits per week to establish a good routine and understanding. Talk to personal trainers near you to figure out the perfect cadence for your personal training sessions.

How can I find a trainer?

Search for personal trainers near you online, and identify the ones with the highest ratings. Read their customer testimonials, and look at customers’ before-and-after photos (if available). It’s also important to find out whether the trainers sought professional training and certification, if they can adhere to your schedule and if they can train you at a location that works for both of you.

Finally, contact several trainers for cost estimates. This way, you can hire a trainer who not only provides great services but also fits within your budget.

Is it worth getting a personal trainer?

If you have fitness goals that you’re having trouble accomplishing on your own, hiring a personal trainer can be worth the money. People rarely regret getting in shape — even if it costs money. Personal trainers create accountability, as you’ll have to confess to them if you don’t stick to your training schedule. They’re trained to push you just hard enough, and they take your body type and goals into account when creating a fitness plan.

What exactly does a personal trainer do?

A personal trainer is tasked with working with a client to achieve fitness goals. Personal trainers may take clients in a small group or do one-on-one training. Their focus is on fitness goals — muscular capacity, working on cardiovascular endurance, improving flexibility, and even recommending diet changes and at-home exercises. Personal trainers may work with clients in the gym or at their homes, depending on their preference.

Is kickboxing good exercise?

Kickboxing is great exercise. It works your whole body and really gets your heart pounding. Kickboxing combines upper- and lower-body movements like roundhouse kicks and uppercut punches that boost calorie burning. The type of kickboxing you do will determine how much exercise you get. Kickboxing training that takes place in a martial arts studio will involve kicking and punching a sandbag or sparring with a competitor, both of which will sharply increase the amount of exercise you’ll experience in a kickboxing session.

Comparatively, a study by the American Council on Exercise (ACE) found that women doing group fitness cardio kickboxing burned between 6.45 and 8.3 calories per minute, or approximately 350-450 calories burned during an hour-long class. This is roughly what you can expect to burn with jogging or similar exercise, but ACE says that cardio kickboxing offers the added benefits of increased strength and flexibility, sharper reflexes, and improved coordination. Whether you’re training to fight competitively, learning kickboxing as a form of self-defense, or taking cardio kickboxing at your local gym, you’ll get a full-body workout with positive health benefits.

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.

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.

If you are considering a personal trainer, these guys are definitely worth checking out. I decided to continue using them and couldn't be happier. They are both knowledgeable, fun, and great motivators. You can't go wrong with Nadine and Joe

Nadine is an amazing personal trainer. She has such a diverse array of workouts that you never get bored, and she also has a genuine interest in your success which is such a great motivator. My personal gains and losses have been so astronomical after 3 months with her, I can't wait to see where it goes from here! If you are not happy with your figure or performance and you live around Tempe, this is your best choice by far.

Working with Nick on my fitness has been great. he has been nothing but encouraging and supportive of all aspects of my well-being not just my muscles. Our sessions were always hard work but always with an element of fun, enjoyment being so important to keep me motivated. When I thought I couldn’t do something I was never allowed to give in, it was broken down to help me manage it. Nick has got to be one of the most motivated and upbeat people that I have ever met and this is what attracted me to him as a personal trainer. His infectious positivity is what you need at 7am in the morning! I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Nick as a personal Trainer.

I was looking for personal trainers in various sites. When i came across wayne, i was impressed as his approach was practical. Wayne is very encouraging and skilled.More than a trainer he is friendly and caring. As i am diabetic i got low in blood sugar in one session and wayne was next to me helping me to recover. Wayne designs the plan according to what we can and pushes to our limit. I very much enjoy the workouts. I would totally recommend anyone to Wayne.

Carolyn is approachable, responsive, focused, encouraging and sensitive to each client's needs. I am continuously amazed at her ability to manage her clients' unique work out programs simultaneously while tailoring to each woman's needs (which are vast and include complex injuries). Look no further for a low-pressure, high quality personal trainer.

I spoke with Eric in regards to his facility and programs. I dread this part of the research and usually stop before I reach out to anyone when I get here, but Eric changed my perception of this whole process! Our conversation was productive, genuine, and low stress. I was not pushed into signing up for anything I wasn’t ready for, and I was made very comfortable with asking questions. When I am finally able to commit to such a schedule, Eric and EZ Personal Training, will be the first place I try!

I started training with Nadine at the beginning of February, after not having worked out continually for a couple of years. I have continued to train with her and could not be more excited with my results. I started to see definition in my leg muscles in two weeks and it has only continued to progress. I can't wait to see how much better it can get. Nadine is really good at gauging what her clients are capable of and pushing them to be a better version of herself. She has not only helped me with fitness, but also with my diet. As a person, she has some of the best energy of anyone I've ever been around and makes working out less about work, and more about enjoying the body we live in. No matter what personal goals you are trying to achieve, I'm sure she can help you meet them.

I’m so glad that I have Spiritual Meathead as my first personal trainer. He was the first person who reached out to me when I posted my requirements on Thumbtack. I liked the way he approached me with confidence. I decided then itself without even looking at reviews on him. 3 weeks after working with him in gym, now I can confidently say that I made a right decision. Like every other individual, I too have unique needs to get fit. The way he personalizes the workouts to me, I’m sure I can tell that he is extremely well versed with human anatomy and physiology. He is an expert in nutrition too. He gets to the roots of the problem before even starting to address it. He corrected my diet and gave right direction to start with. He is always reachable to me for any kind of my stupid questions and answers with patience. He is mind reader too and he has his own style of convincing you to do the right things. He is kinda an all-rounder 😊 (Personal Trainer, Nutritionist, hematologist and massage therapist). I can feel a lot of difference with in myself apart from losing weight. Most of my long-lived problems are getting addressed during my journey with him. I’m sure I’m going to work with him for longer term. I strongly recommend Spiritual Meathead for your fitness goals. I’ll comeback with more reviews as we progress in our fitness program.

I've been working with Jerame for about a month now and he has been awesome so far! I was looking for someone to help me reach my fitness goals as far as eating better and building muscle, and I can tell that Jerame definitely knows what he's doing and is committed to helping me reach my goals. I had always been leery of choosing a personal trainer in fear of wasting my money on someone who didn't really care about my progress and was just doing it for the money, but I can tell that Jerame is passionate about what he does and truly does care about helping me, which is exactly what I wanted! I'd highly recommend him to anybody who's wanting to build some muscle and lead a healthier lifestyle!
