Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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 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 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.

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.

I have not started training with them yet, but they seemed very professional when I met with them, regarding personal training and nutrition.

Damion is a great personal trainer. He did a great job relating to, encouraging and training my 13 year old nephew. He worked with him on cardio, weight training and nutrition. It was a very positive experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone seeking to improve their physical health.

I just hired Mark as my "first-ever" personal trainer. He was one of 4 trainers that I had communicated with, prior to my "determining" that I really could not make a time-commitment for "training". I told all four trainers of my decision to "wait". All said "ok" - EXCEPT Mark who said (in a very nice way) - QUIT PROCRASTINATING!, and let's GET BUSY. I then did my hour-long consulting session with Mark, and committed to a training program/schedule. Point: I know that I NEED a trainer who will PUSH me, and Mark, by his "get-off-your-butt" response demonstrates his skill in motivating people to succeed. My training starts tomorrow, and I'm STOKED.

Really happy with the team at EZ Personal Training. Most responsive and professional PT services I have encountered here in Tucson. They were amazing in providing me a personalized plan and giving me all the information I needed to have a successful training journey before any sessions even started. Super friendly and not at all intimidating. All around super happy with my experience.

I've been doing personal training with Mark Saunders for 2 mos now -- 3 times a week, an hour each time. Mark is absolutely excellent as what the does. He pushes me to my limits (yet also knows when to exercise appropriate caution) , holds me accountable, and is fully committed to my progress. In addition, Mark is 100% dependable, available for questions/concerns outside of the training session, and always pleasant to be around. Bottom line: Training with Mark has proven to be one of the best decisions I have ever made. I expect to continue with him long into the future!

I've worked w/ many personal trainers throughout the years and Lauren is by far the best! She is knowledgeable, patient, flexible, and passionate. She took the time to assess my initial physical abilities and listened to my goals and then tailored a workout plan. She constantly reassesses and modifies my workout plan so that my body is challenged and doesn't plateau. She is constantly educating me during our session on nutrition, muscle groups, providing me with exercises and stretches I can do in between workouts. She gets excited as I become stronger and she gets to introduce new exercises. She is constantly challenging me to push myself. She sends me encouraging articles when I'm feeling like I want to quit. She makes me feel that I can and will achieve my goals. She is a personal training miracle!! I am glad I took a chance with Lauren and if you are looking for someone to be in your corner and care about your health and physical goals you need look no further cause Lauren is your personal training miracle and I guarantee you wont regret the choice!!!!!!!!!!!!!

David has been an excellent trainer for me. I have two rather significant injuries, and David’s knowledge of anatomy and recovery (and/or working around permanent) injuries has been both impressive and appreciated. Plain and simple, David "knows his stuff.” Week after week, our work is varied, challenging, and a "just right" fit for me. David is patient. He is kind. His words of encouragement mean The World to me. I’ve been very happy with our work, and highly recommend David with REAL FIT for personal training.

I'm so excited to start training with Eddie. I had my initial fitness consultation with him this morning and I was nervous to meet with him at first. I wasn't sure what to expect but I'm so glad that I went through with it. Ive never worked out before and don't have a clue where to begin. That's until now, Eddie is very aproachable and has a great sense of humor! He showed me the exact steps I need to take in order to reach my goals. I wish that I would have found him earlier. I definately recommend you hire him as your personal trainer. I'll post a follow up review in a few weeks. Thanks Eddie

Mark is by far the best personal trainer in southern Arizona. He makes you feel comfortable and takes the time to understand what your goals. The thing I appreciate most about Mark is that he holds you accountable to the goals you want to achieve. In addition he gives you a diet plan specific to what your fitness goals are. Mark has given me a strong foundation to continue improving myself both physically and mentally. If your ready to become the best version of yourself give Mark a call.
