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.

Steve is a phenomenal personal trainer. My brother and I have taken 3 sessions with him so far and we love it! He is very knowledgeable and took the time to first understand any limitations you would have. For me I have had chronic back pain so Steve modified a few things to accommodate that but still encouraged me to challenge myself and do more to build strength in those weak areas. He motivates you and pushes you to bring out your best in the workout. More than a trainer, he is there like your friend who you can trust and have a fun engaging workout with. Highly recommend working with him if you are looking for a trainer.

Denise is amazing!!! She takes the time to listen to her clients to make sure she understands what you are looking to achieve. She sets goals and changes up the routine each time so you aren’t getting bored with that same workouts. She is so encouraging and sends you motivating texts even she doesn’t see you that day. I loved having Denise as my trainer- she was punctual and there was no minute that was wasted. I highly recommend Denise if you are looking for a personal trainer- the best part is that she comes to you. It doesn’t get better than this and the results take no time to see.

I highly recommend Jessica as a personal trainer. Each session was tailored to what my fitness goals were to accomplish. Jessica is very motivating in that whenever I felt tired or wanted to stop she was there to encourage me, which is something that I definitely needed. Since working with Jessica, my core strength has improved and I have lost weight. Jessica is great to work with and, again, I highly recommend her.

Going in to my fitness journey, I had no idea what to expect and zero experience with a personal trainer. Right from first contact through Thumbtack, John and his team have been amazing in making the plan easy to understand, supporting me whenever I have questions or need help and customizing my plan to fit my life as it changes. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to better their lives with fitness and nutritional coaching so that you leave with healthy lifestyle habits that can be used for the rest of your life.

I have been training with Denise since this past April. I really believe if I had picked anyone else I would have quit by now. I have had personal trainers before and I thought they were good but now that I have been working with Denise everyone else pales in comparison!!! Denise is extremely knowledgable and can work around my messed up neck and back. She really knows the human anatomy, what might flare up my past injuries and what to do to get me closer to my goals. Denise really mixes up my workouts and always has new moves up her sleeve. I don't know how she keeps them all straight but she does. Her sessions are different every time which helps prevent boredom and means, if you do the work, you will see results. Denise increases the level of fitness of my workouts as I improve and become more fit. She pushes me just the right amount. I actually look forward to our sessions and the hour flies by so fast. Denise's workouts are really tough. She is very encouraging and not a annoying drill ready to sweat! A lot! You will have fun AND get results if you hire Denise. She is a smart, classy, caring and a truly genuine person. You can't go wrong choosing Denise to get you to you fitness goals!
