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.

Daphne is an awesome personal trainer. I highly recommend her! She continues to help me reach my goals and keeps it interesting by consistently adding new exercises to the workouts. She encourages me and pushes me harder than I would push myself. She is 100% committed to helping me be successful in this change of lifestyle because that is what it truly is for me. She has also helped me a lot with my nutrition and changing my eating habits. She encourages communication good, bad or indifferent. She takes time to address any concerns I have and explains anything I don't quite get. She is very patient also because some things have come a little slower to me than others. I am doing physical activities that I never would have considered 6 months ago because I would have thought that I couldn't do it. I have even signed up for a mud run in September. I feel better than I have in years. If you need a personal trainer you should definitely meet with Daphne.

Hi, I hired Evey four months ago when my weight had gotten out of hand and had me with the feeling of low self-esteem. All I wanted to do was stay home, eat and sleep. Finally I had said to myself enough is enough. So i searched online for personal trainers that will work with me in my home because I was to embarrassed to go work out at a gym. I found Evey on this site, her prices were very reasonable and also not to mention the fact that her body was very much like the type of body i wouldn't mind getting my body to shape into.Lol. So I replied to her and she came to my rescue. She taught me the right techniques and proper way to work out without injuring my knees, neck or back. She went over with me consistently about how important it is to eat healthy, drink lots of water, portion control and not to skip any meals. Also she educated me on how important it is to make sure I get adequate sleep. I can hear her now telling me now that "as a woman my age, late 30's the most important exercise i can do to keep everything from going south is Lunges and squats." Lol. She really toned me up and got me whipped back into shape. In the process i also felt as if she is not just there because you are paying her, she is also there because she loves what she do and she really cares about me. She assured me on my last day working with her that if I ever feel like I am falling back or just need that extra push even if it's only for one day that I can just pick up the phone and give her a call and we can schedule a day for her to come back out to my home. That really made me good to know that I can always count on Evey. Trust me I will be keeping in touch with her for years to come, especially right after the holidays, you know how we tend to over indulge during Christmas and Thanksgiving.Lol. So thanks to Evey I am now back to not only looking great but also feeling great. I gained my self esteem back and that energetic inner being in me came back out and now I'm back out on social outings with friends and family staying active so that I never go back to being that unhealthy, lazy, low self esteem having person again. I have posted a before and after pic of me after working with Evey for only four months so you can see for yourself the amazing results. I would recommend Evey to anyone of my friends or family members.
