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.

John is very knowledgeable, professional, and personable making the workout fun and something I am looking forward too. I did his 21 day special and was so impressed by his knowledge base, enthusiasm and sincerity I have decided to continue with him and purchase an extended training program. John has demonstrated his desire to help me achieve my goals and goes the extra mile to accommodate my needs, time, and location. I have no doubt I will achieve my fitness, health, and weight loss goals with Johns guidance. I highly recommend him, and feel he would definitely be worth yr time to speak with if in the market for a personal trainer.

It’s nice to find a personal trainer that is both knowledgeable and patient. It had been a while since I worked out so she eased the tempo in the very beginning in order to prevent injuries, and has modifications ready if needed. When I felt ready - which didn’t take long - she turned it up a notch…or 10. Lol Bonnie kicks my butt and does it with a smile, I definitely recommend booking a session with her. It is the kick in the pants I didn’t know I needed.

Short Story: Alex consistently canceled and did not show up for sessions. He did not pay me back after he canceled our contract. Long Story: Please use my experience for informational purposes in deciding whether to consider Alex in your personal training journey, as mine was a stressful worst-case scenario. In my opinion, Alex is not only unprofessional but deceitful. He told me after our initial meeting that I needed to write a review so Thumbtack could register that I had hired him as my personal trainer. It seems like he wanted me to review him based on our positive conversation and game plan. However, that is not what I experienced after that consultation. He even mentioned that "reviews are important because they help me get new customers." Which seems to be the reasoning for the bait and switch situation that occurred. After my initial assessment, Alex and I agreed upon 24 sessions, meeting 3 times a week for 8 weeks. My goals and time commitment were addressed upfront and confirmed. We agreed to early morning sessions during the week and on Saturday. The first week of sessions, Alex canceled two appointments (one time for being sick). The second week, Alex never arrived at a scheduled appointment. I received no explanation or apology for him standing me up. The following week, he canceled claiming to be sick again. The same week of having a canceled session, I had a 7 AM session scheduled with him. I arrived at the gym and he never showed up. I texted him if he was on the way but he ignored my text. The next day we were supposed to meet so I texted Alex and asked him to confirm if we were still on for the next day. He texted me saying yes, without acknowledging that he blew me off earlier in the day. The next day, I was on my way to my 8 AM session when Alex texted me saying he will "no longer be able to accommodate for personal training." After I received this text, I asked him for reasoning which he did not provide. He said he would forward me my remaining balance by mail, as we only met 6 times out of the allotted 24 times. I asked him if we could meet personally but he avoided the question. He said to allow 2-3 business days for the check to arrive at my address and of course the check never arrived. I followed up asking if I could meet him so he could hand me a physical check or Venmo me since the check he allegedly sent never arrived. He claimed that he had “records” that the check was sent which he never shared and stated he didn’t use Venmo. I texted him a few times for updates and asked him if he could Zelle me the money which he advertises using on Thumbtack and he ignored me. He also blocked me from the Diamond Fitness Instagram account where he posts work out images and videos. He ultimately cut off communication with me and never paid me back. This whole situation wasted not only my money but my time. If Alex was unable to accommodate my clearly communicated goals and schedule, he should have been honest with me upfront. In my opinion, this is a horrible way to conduct your personal business and manage client relationships. But it seems like this was less of a mistake and more of his MO, as I found out, I wasn’t the first and may not be the last person that was treated this way as it happened to others just like me. If there is anyone else out there, I hope you share your story as well in order to help people avoid this situation. I see there are a lot of positive reviews on here, probably because people genuinely had good experiences. But I do see a few comments here and on other review boards where people have had similar situations with canceled appointments and getting dropped without warning and no refund. In my opinion, Alex builds up hype and positivity to get good reviews and then bails on his commitments and takes advantage of certain people in the process. If you are looking for someone who is honest and committed to you just like you are committed to your fitness journey then I personally would recommend finding anyone other than Alex. Please use this to make the best judgement call while making your decision. Thank you.
