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.

Alex is an extremely knowledgeable and patient trainer. He modifies exercises to make sure I can progress with the limitations I currently have. I have been working with him for over 6+ months and he’s the best trainer I have had thus far. The amount of time he takes to simplify the exercises, I greatly appreciate. I highly recommend hiring Diamond Fitness Personal Training for your personal training needs!

I met Chris from Studio Physique thru Thumbtack. After a personal training session with Chris, I was hooked! Her trainers are wonderful and offer a number of group classes to accommodate my schedule. I am so impressed with Lagree Pilates and how it is transforming my body. I already feel stronger and have increased my flexibility. I couldn't be happier and am so grateful I joined Studio Physique. If you are considering a personal trainer or looking to try a fitness program that will change your body composition quickly...CALL Chris at Studio Physique!!! They are amazing!!!

I've been working with Vicki LeMay for almost a year and highly recommend her as a personal trainer. In my time with her I've become stronger, have more endurance, and, oh yes, lost weight. But what I've gained is far more valuable than just that. As a trainer, Vicki encourages you, compels you, and gives you the tools to get to whatever your personal best is that day. Even on those days when working out is the last thing I want to do, Vicki's energy and focus ensure I leave each session satisfied with what I've accomplished. I'm challenged by her training, which encourages me further and as a result I've seen great progress and improvement. Vicki is a great trainer and I am very happy to recommend her.

This is our first time using a personal trainer and I can't say enough good things about David. He has great energy, a great motivator, mindful of your limits and knows just how hard to push you. We are already seeing results in just 4 weeks and feel so much better since we started working with him. Awesome trainer!

I was looking for a personal trainer, and Vicky contacted me about Burg Fitness. I have now been going here since the end of April. I really enjoy the classes, there is a nice variety. What I like most is its not a big club and I enjoy the classes with the others. There is no judgement.

I have had a very good experience working with David Gaines for the last month. He is very professional, reliable and knowledgeable. He pushes you to work hard but knows your limitations. His workouts are individualized to the need of the client. He is the best personal trainer I have had so far. Thank you David. Amaya

Ahhh I love Vickys workouts! Shes always prepared and really knows how make you strong and gain endurance without pushing beyond your limits! Lost 20lbs in a couple months by doing The Burg workouts only 3-4 days a week and (mostly) cutting out dairy. Classes are filled with people putting in real work and its impossible to feel unmotivated while youre there. Her prices are extremely affordable and worth every penny. Personal training with Vicky is also a great way to keep up with making sure youre progressing. Her personal training sessions are only $35/hr. Im pretty sure thats probably one of the lowest prices in st pete and you get to workout in a private gym! What can i say? I love The Burg :) looking forward to them getting spin classes also 🙊

Working with Denise has been a wonderful experience for me. She listens to what I say, adjusts the workout based on my needs, and doesn’t let me give up. Having had several surgeries in the past year, she works with my limitations but still helps me strengthen those areas. She is encouraging and very knowledgeable in all aspects of fitness and nutrition. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a personal trainer.

Initial meet up was great! He is extremely motivating and very knowledgeable. I know he is going to push me to my max. I’ve been wanting someone to correct my workouts and educate me at the same time. I’ve never had one on one personal training before and Alex has made me feel very comfortable. I am looking forward to working with Alex! He has made me feel very excited and hopeful for the future.

My friend and I came in for a session, we both really enjoyed the workout ! Alex is very professional and accommodating to our workout needs. My friend had a prior neck injury and was timid to workout but Alex made sure to modify her workouts to a comfortable level to ensure her safety. I am very impressed with the skill level and knowledge he has in personal training. My friend and I are really happy with our session and look forward to our next!
