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.

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.

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.

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.

My wife and I were looking to get fitness back into our busy routine. We had previously worked with a personal trainer for a year, until they moved. It totally threw us off our goals. I found a few personal trainer options on Thumbtack and had a consultation with several. Ryan was the most responsive and most professional out of the group so we decided to schedule an initial consultation. Ryan made time for us right away, and worked around our schedule and even the holidays! My wife and I were excited but nervous, but once we met Ryan in person, we felt comfortable due to his warm, personalable and humble demeanor. Especially when you aren’t used to working out, it can be intimidating, but Ryan worked with us to set up goals, set up a plan forward and ease us back into fitness. Over the past 2 months we have been working with Ryan, it’s become clear that he is extremely dedicated to Royal Fitness and his clients. He is committed to results, and he ensures you are too. During the week, he checks in with us to ensure our week is going well, we are sticking to the work out and nutrition plan! It’s great accountability, which we need. He has also built us monthly work outs that are designed to do from home. I travel for work 3-5 days a week, and Ryan went out of his way to design work outs that I could do from my hotel room. In the last 2 months we went from not having fitness in our lives, to being motivated and working out 4-6 times a week; 1-2 times with Ryan and the rest using our Royal Fitness designed work outs at home. We enjoy the work outs and really feel like Ryan designs them just for us! Together in the first 5 weeks we were 20lbs down combined. We’ve never felt so certain that we will accomplish our overall goals with Coach Ryan guiding the way. Thanks Ryan! - Heather & Rina

I’ve had the great pleasure of working with Bree for the last 7 months! We meet on Monday mornings and she writes 3 other work outs for me to do on my own at my gym. She also writes and tracks my nutrition via My Fitness Pal and provides me with feedback. I, like a lot of people, have spun my wheels on fad, extreme diets & have went through the cycle of mustering up motivation to work out, only to fall on my face and quit, countless times. I thought, if I could just knock myself into submission then I’ll finally have the healthy lifestyle I so desperately wanted all of my adult life. Realizing that wasn’t working for me, I decided to reach out to several trainers in the Sacramento area and I interviewed all of them. Bree and I had a 30 minute phone consultation at the end of May 2019. She jumps right in and asks the hard questions. “What’s your why”? “What are your short term and long term goals”? Naturally and thankfully, I decided to go with Bree! What I’ve gotten is so much more than just a trainer/nutritionist. She’s helped deconstruct my fixed mindset around eating and working out. She challenged me to be more creative with my meals. She figured out what makes me tick and she uses it to coach me better. Yes I’ve lost a lot of weight & inches and my lifting game is strong. But what I’ve really gained is a healthier mindset and balance that I had a complete mental block in front of for years. Bree is a power house & one of the hardest workers I know. She is constantly looking for ways to be a better Coach for her clients. The way she coached me on Day 1 is very different today. She doesn’t have a cookie cutter approach to her clients. It’s very much tailored to you and what inspires and motivates you. To be clear, I am a stubborn person to train. I don’t always listen and I struggle with consistency. Yet she keeps pushing me with positivity. Having a personal trainer is obviously not free. I happily pay Bree every month because it’s so dang worth it. If you’re considering hiring Bree but aren’t sure it’s worth it, ask yourself these questions. When is the last time you worked out 3-4 times a week consistently for months on end? When is the last time you had a positive, confident and healthy relationship with food? When is the last time you were free of shame surrounding your body and food? I can say the answer used to be “never” for me. I struggled for years and this is the first time I decided to invest in me. I very much look forward to my Monday mornings with Bree and I look forward to many many more.
