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.

I just completed my third week of personal training. I meet with Mario 3 times per week. Each week I feel and see progress in my overall fitness, energy, and health. Mario is an excellent trainer who perfectly models exercises to ensure maximum results and he pushes me to the max when I thought I couldn’t do that last rep. He challenges me to another level each week and my results are beginning to show. I still have to master my eating (this is a work in progress!) But even without changing much of my diet, Im seeing changes in my body. This is the best personal training I’ve had. He is affordable and this is the best gift that I can give myself “investing in me!”

She is also modifies any workout that you may not feel comfortable with. She is truly the best and I look forward in continuing to work with her.

I Want to express my disappointing experience that I had with Trainer Mike Gonzales. I paid him a total of $980.00 from the time period of 1-13-2016 - 02-10-2016. My medical history & possibly having to cancel a training session to due a medical reason in the future was mentioned & discussed prior to hiring Mike. After hiring him, I had to cancel two training sessions due to my personal two-year medical endeavor of a present treatment with my Family Doctor. However, Trainer Mike never disclosed verbally nor in contract, that canceled training sessions are nonrefundable and non re-schedulable, resulting in losing my training sessions & money. Upon attempting to re-schedule my two sessions, I was disappointed and speechless when he unprofessionally stated “No you can’t have it back, there is NO make ups for cancellations.” Honestly who does that? Also, to mention Mike canceled one time on me due to his vehicle’s flat tire and he immediately re-scheduled, a 2nd time Mike cut my session short 10 minutes early due to his personal plans, and 3rd he was a (No Call No Show) for a session, but according to him all that was okay. Warning, this trainer is out for himself and takes no accountability for his mistakes. Do not be sold on his first impression and if you do decide to hire him make sure you he puts all his rules on a written contract. He does not put customers first. Regards, Gina Looez

I’m so glad I picked Mario as my personal trainer. He has made working out actually enjoyable. Since I work nights and long hours, he tailors my work outs to my level of capability for that day and I truly appreciate this attention to detail. I can be super critical of myself but he’s such an encouragement which has been a contributing factor for me keeping a consistent workout schedule. My goal going into training was to gain strength and endurance. I definitely see the improvement of my weight lifting strength and running endurance after 6 months.

Training with Marcos (Fit to You) has been one of the best decisions I've ever made. In just 2 months of training I've added on 10 lbs of muscle, and for someone on the skinny side, like me, that's big deal. On top of that I have seen improvements in muscle tone and overall conditioning. One of the biggest reasons I chose to go with Marcos over other trainers is his willingness to come to you for training. You don't need to have an expensive gym membership or add additional time to your schedule for commuting. While he does have a gym, which won't cost you extra, it's the ability to train in your own home or local gym that makes all the difference. Especially for those with busy work schedules. Marcos is also extremely patient and encouraging regardless of your level of fitness. He makes sure to customize a routine for each session that will help you achieve your fitness goals with the right level of pushing. Another big selling point is Marcos' vast knowledge of exercises and how to do them properly so you can avoid injuries. His ability to teach me how to use gym equipment reassures me that when it comes time to part ways, I will have gained the knowledge to train effectively on my own. Overall, if you're looking to take your fitness to another level, you can't go wrong by choosing Marcos to be your personal trainer. You won't regret it!
