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 have been with Elgin as my personal trainer now for about 8 months. I can’t say enough great things about him as a experienced & knowledgeable trainer who works with your individual priorities for health & fitness! He is a quality individual who along the way will become a friend. He is “top drawer “, you can’t find a better personal trainer!!!

Mike is a very kind and understanding individual. He clearly cares about what he does and is very passionate about it. He also looks at working out with multiple lenses and takes time to get to know his clients. I would definitely recommend him to anyone looking to get a personal trainer. Unfortunately I did not hire him (yet) because of some personal things I need to take care of, but when I do look for a personal trainer again, he will definitely be the one I hire!

I've had a great experience working with Versell! I've never enjoyed going to the gym to workout and often feel embarrassed when I do. Versell helped me overcome this obstacle as he made me feel more comfortable and confident with helping me make positive changes in my life. His approach to personal training goes beyond the physical aspects of training as he wants you to make lifelong changes that will help you become a better person overall. He tailored my program to my specific needs and he was always giving me the encouragement that I needed to stay motivated and on task. I would highly recommend Versell to anyone seeking a personal trainer.

I have had a lot of personal trainers in the past, and Jerron immediately saw my physical weaknesses and started to make adjustments to make my workout fit my needs. He and everyone at WillPower are friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, and give you the tools needed to get in shape and healthy! I stated with them about a month ago and I’ve already lost 8 lbs and I am feeling much more energetic and healthy.

After years of neglecting my physical and nutritional health, I decided to take a leap of faith and hire a Personal Trainer. I had gained over 50lbs in 5 years, ending up a very out of shape 60+ year old woman. My search for an educated, personal trainer was meet when I hired Michael @ MJ Studios. Michael's degree in Biomedicine, nutrition with certifications in personal training, along with his personal journey gaining and losing 50lbs resonated with me. Within hours Michael and I made an agreement to meet the following week. On that day, there I was with my shoulders bent forward, dragging my feet and butt to our meet-up. Michael was standing outside watching me stumble forward. He immediately put me at ease. We discussed my goals, what, why and how he could help me accomplish these. Michael then asked me to walk on a treadmill, a test of sorts to see where I was and where he needed to start. Observing me trying to navigate the correct way to walk on the treadmill, Michael immediately recognized that my stride, gait and balance were not there. I, of course was oblivious. Who can't walk on a treadmill. Michael did'nt know about the broken foot i had walked on for over a year, nor comments regarding my "limping", tripping over things was an issue. I had'nt put two and two together. There could be no way I would fully benefit from an intense excercise program until I had corrected my gait, balance and form. Within two months, I learned through Michael's gait and balance excercises to walk correctly and balance. I know without a doubt, if I had hired a random Personal Trainer without Michael's knowledge and expertise, I would have not followed through, quitting or worse injuring myself. With excercise and nutrition I have lost 15 lbs. I now know the importance of eating a balanced diet, along with performing excercises correctly. My physical endurance has increased two-fold. What was once difficult is now an automatic response to the gait, balance and excercise training. Sleeping at night is now normal. I have energy which dramatically improved after 6 weeks. With this increase in excercise and nutrition, I tapered a medication giving my brain what it required naturally. I am grateful and thankful for the expertise, knowledge and commitment Michael has inspired in me. To go above and beyond what I thought I could do to being able to achieve the most I can do on this journey to excellant health.

Michael is an awesome trainer! He made sure to structure the workouts to my personal goals and was always considerate of my thoughts and feelings. He is extremely knowledgable and I have seriously learned SO much from him such as maintaining correct form to maximize the effects of the workouts and to help protect my body! I have a pretty hectic schedule, but Michael is very accommodating and accessible so it was never a problem to get workout sessions in or to get questions answered even outside of our sessions. He is also personable, outgoing, funny and uplifting which makes it very enjoyable to workout with him.

I walked into this gym feeling very welcomed and supported in my fitness journey....that all changed when the discussion of the pricing came up. I was not set on this personal trainer because I was looking at other places so I wasn't planning on paying for any solid classes when I went in. As soon as I saw the prices I knew I had to go home and do the math on whether or not this is the most beneficial and affordable place for me. Berto, the owner of the gym looked at me as if I was stupid when I said that I wanted to go home and not make a solid decision that day. He offers and free 10 min workout session before discussing pricing and to me it made it seem like I wasted his time when in reality don't offer a free session if you don't want clients to potentially not sign up. And as far as their Christianity, it didn't feel like they were so Christian towards me after I didn't want to sign up. I'm taking my money and time elsewhere, they offer 3 classes per week for only 30 min and $420 a month...which I think is ridiculous and a rip off. Yes it's a personal trainer but I've seen other places that are cheaper and still focus on working on the parts of your body that you want to improve for a much cheaper price. Don't waste your time going here or even considering doing the free session because most likely Berto will make you feel unwelcome if you don't sign up for a membership at the end of the free SHORT session.
