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.

Joh Haas is the ultimate personal fitness coach! I sought someone who could take my existing training regiment to the next level. Someone who could answer my questions about exercise and nutrition. Couldn't have found a better coach! Already sharing my experience with others. I sought a personal trainer who could take my training to the next level, educate me on how to amend my diet, answering my questions about physical activities and nutrition so I could build on what I had started more than a year ago. I appreciate Josh's personal approach to my wellbeing, he clearly cares about me and my health, the nutritional advise allows me to plan better meals and snacks throughout my day, the exercise advise allows me to shake up my routine and build on it. But he offers more than answers to questions. Josh offers personal encouragement, and suggestions and tips so I can make better decisions, improving my mind and body. What I searched for and more! - Thomas

I was talking to a good friend about how I've never had much success getting in physical shape. He suggested I try a personal trainer. So I googled personal trainers in my area and found Thumbtack. They referred me to nearby personal trainers in their network. Josh followed up with me nearly immediately (on a Saturday) which impressed me. When we met for the initial consultation, I was very impressed with Josh's background, communication/listening skills, and attention to detail. So I hired him for a month. He trains me at my home, by the way. I've been working with Josh for about a month now and am amazed at what he has helped me to do physically that I've never been able to do before. I plan to continue working with Josh past the initial month. I'm glad I took my friends advice and took a chance on something new. I'm equally glad to have found someone with Josh's skills and ability to read my feedback real time and adjust my workouts accordingly. I've observed Josh to be down to earth, funny, and easy going which really helps me push harder in my workouts. If you are not sure who to pick, I recommend giving Josh a try. I was hooked after the first session. Thanks for reading. Hope this helps!

I have to update my review, the original was old. There were two, possibly three, occasions where he arrived 15+ minutes late to my sessions, yet I still paid full price even though my sessions were cut short. I didn't complain. On many occasions he was very distracted during our sessions at a local park, it was very annoying. Any time a female under 50 was in eye shot, his head was turned around and he was no longer paying attention to his client. I even asked him on one occasion if he wanted me to introduce him to her, that is how blatant it was. There was another girl that I referred to as his "girlfriend" because during two separate sessions he did nothing but stare at this girl sunbathing at the park. I did not complain about this either. There were also consistent issues with response times to messages. Frequently I had to wait 2-3 days for a response, especially on weekends. Then my life situation changed and I had to use my personal training budget for the purchase of a major asset. So I let Luke know and we discussed alternatives to meet my needs as paying customer. I had been seeing him 2x a week for 2 hours. We came to a decision about a proper path to meet my needs and he advised he would be in touch that weekend with my new workout plan. Over the course of the following two and a half weeks I had to remind him several times. His excuses were that he was too busy or that he was ignoring his phone for a few days because he needed a break. I have a client based business and I make myself available to them whenever they need me and I would NEVER have the audacity to tell a paying customer that I ignored their messages for 2-3 days because I was "taking a break from my phone". That is shocking to say the least. Terrible work ethic and no business acumen. I wanted to share this experience in hope of saving someone else from what I just went through for three months. I have since moved on and found the perfect trainer for me. He's got great business acumen and excellent work ethics. He responds right away, is very professional, is always on time, and always stays focused on me for the entire session, no matter what is going on around us.
