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.

Reviews for Venice personal trainers

Vince is professional and dedicated. I hesitated to select a personal trainer but I made the right choice. He understands where and when to push to excel. I am very pleased with his knowledge of nutrition and fitness. I made many changes based on his recommendations and I am pleased with the results I’ve seen. Time for some new goals! I would recommend Vince for anyone who is looking for a personal trainer.

John Bruno is the most knowledgeable personal trainer I've ever worked with (I've trained with 6 others). John takes great pains to get to know your strengths and weaknesses, and then he formulates the sessions to address the weaknesses, but is very careful not to push the trainee too hard while progressing.

I've had other personal trainers in the past Vincent is by far the best! He especially takes the time to fine-tune the correct technique to maximum efficiency and is highly knowledgeable with supplements. I have seen drastic transformations in my body in just four weeks with weight loss, stronger overall, and motivation. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND VINCENT!!!!

I've been training with Vincent 3-6 times a week for over five months, and I just can't say enough good things about him as a trainer and as a person. I initially reached out to him because of his breadth of specialty and certification but I can't believe how lucky I've been to have found somebody so world class right here in Venice. To say Vincent is thoughtful is an understatement. His consultation about your needs is ongoing, his care for your results is genuine, and he is extremely proactive about your progress. He is also someone who truly practices what he preaches, but in a very honest and personal way. We have covered almost every facet of wellness together, from mobility to cardio and strength, functional movement, diet, improved lifestyle and habit, mental health, mindfulness, and professional coaching. I am a very busy executive and Vincent's flexibility to perform virtual training even while I am traveling, or even just get too busy when working from home, along with his patience and empathy, have allowed me to progress despite the hurdles that come my way. And thanks to him, I am also now more prepared than ever to overcome those hurdles as I continue to improve my lifestyle, fitness, and wellbeing. He’s also not only a lot of fun but will kick your butt in the gym when you need it. If you have the means, are willing to make the time, and are lucky enough to get a spot on his schedule, don't lose the opportunity to train with Vincent Dove. I was looking for a personal trainer and found not only a life coach, but, I hope, a coach for life.

Vincent is working with my 15 year old son To prepare him for high school sports . He is enthusiastic and committed to helping him. He has not only worked with him on strength but is another voice of motivation on improving his diet to help build muscle. Vincent has a positivity that is infectious which really helps with a cranky teen. He is great with communication and endlessly patient. I highly recommend him for any age group. I feel very fortunate to have stumbled across Vincent when looking for a personal trainer.

Professional, expert knowledge, dedicated, committed, focused and strategic, unrelenting support, attuned - all of these attributes are to enable his clients to achieve their goals. In a few short weeks my wellness/fitness has turned a corner and is continuing to grow at a pace that is amazing. Vincent is dedicated to the client - setting up challenges that are specific to the individual while offering deep support for succeeding. His approach is holistic and brings a complete perspective to support, heal and transform the individual. I’ve worked with “personal trainers” before, but Vincent rises about that kind of label. He is the rare individual that is dedicated to the wellness of his client and has a large toolbox of skills and expertise to offer. If you are just starting out on a wellness/fitness journey, or (like me) need a complete kick start, or are an uber athlete, Vincent is the person to contact. Your health, fitness and wellness will be forever positively impacted.
