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 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.

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.

Andrew was totally awesome as my first time personal trainer. I have a pretty demanding job schedule that he graciously worked with. I had both in personal & zoom session with Andrew and with both types of sessions, he is super professional and adapted to each environment perfectly. Would highly recommend to all folks looking for a personal trainer either via zoom or in person.

It’s been great working with Dima. I haven been training under him from past 8 months. The results have been beyond the expectations. He designs the exercises based on your current conditions helping to push yourself in a comfortable way to achieve your goal. I have been able to hit personal records in my weight training. I learnt a lot about nutrition and diet while training under him. I highly recommend him for personal training.

I’ve had several personal trainers in the past but none that have helped me gain positive long term results like training with Dima. I’ve been training with Dima for almost two years and he’s helped me implement long term positive life style changes. Dima is very knowledgeable, he creates personalized, dynamic and challenging workouts, while also helping improve nutritional habits. He is always professional, punctual, and flexible with schedule changes when needed and keeps me accountable to reach my goals. I definitely recommend Dima to anyone who’s in search of a personal trainer!

I've been going through cycles of setting up a gym schedule for myself and then failing to follow it. I've run through a few personal trainers in the past year or so, and can honestly say Dima changed the way I look at fitness. It was hard to motivate myself before, and I wasn't seeing improvement. Dima taught me about the whole fitness lifestyle, from plannjng my diet to getting the perfect form in a deadlift. I've seen more results in my 12 weeks with Dima than I did in a year at my old gym. And, going to the gym is fun for me now because of Dima's relentlessly positive, goal-oriented training style. Thank you, Dima, for giving me the personal training experience I always wanted.

As a person who’s been active majority of my life, I’ve noticed that my fitness level was plateauing. I realized that if I wanted exceptional results, I needed an EXCEPTIONAL PERSONAL TRAINER who can push me to my highest fitness potential. I did my share of researching and meeting with a few potential personal trainers. That’s when I found Josh from Elite Fitness Training! He is Godsend! Not only is he an expert in his craft, he’s been able to produce effective results for me. I am already seeing physical changes! I’m also experiencing soreness in areas that I didn’t even know exist! His workouts are insane but in a great way! I am enjoying every second of it. I highly recommend him to everyone. I’ve already done the research so others don’t have to. Elite Fitness Training is ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️!

I highly recommend Dima as a personal trainer. I have been training with him for a while and am very happy with the results. He observed the areas that needed work and put together a well balanced exercise program that I can do each week. He makes sure that I make progress each week and makes adjustments as needed. He is very knowledgeable about both exercise and diet and guides you to achieve your goals. I am very happy with the results.

Ray's training sessions are affordable and great value. He's open to tailoring his workout program to your goals and needs. He focuses on form, technique and safety during all the exercises and will not unnecessarily push you if he thinks there's any chance of injury or soreness later. He is patient in answering questions and providing feedback based on his personal power lifting and training experience. Ray and the other folks at the gym are very friendly. The gym is clean, well maintained and follows all COVID safety guidelines. Really glad to have found Ray on Thumbtack, I would highly recommend working with him for achieving your health and fitness goals!

Hands down the best personal trainer I worked with. Very approachable and an open book when it comes to fitness - listens to your questions and personalizes the workout for you needs. For me personally, he has demystified things a round diet and the importance of proteins to be combined with the workouts. I've discovered bench press with Dima and I am loving it! Best money and time invested on myself - I found the fitness "Doctor" that I trust.

Dima’s an excellent trainer. He’s exceptional at helping you with your form as well as providing feedback on how to improve. He’s also helped me work though injuries and still find ways to attain my fitness goals. Before I met Dima I would have taken time off the gym with an injury but I now feel confident to keep going and do different exercises that avoid those muscle groups as well as doing mobility exercises to improve my flexibility. Also Dima’s extremely committed as a trainer with frequently checking in how my workouts are going as well as providing me a concrete workout plan. This communication is invaluable and it helps me think about how to change my program based on injuries or how my body is feeling. I would highly recommend Dima to anyone who’s looking for a committed and passionate personal trainer who helps you work to your fitness goals safely and quickly
