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.

I started working out with Ann as a private, personal trainer, about 3 months ago. I have found her to be professional, very knowledgable and genuinely concerned about me and wanting to help me get in the best shape possible. She has many designations already in personal training but she continues to take courses to stay up on new information and specifically working on educating herself on areas of concern for her clients. I have had several personal trainers over the years and I can, with all honesty, say she is the best.

Rap takes pride in both the content of his training and his dedication to each of his clients. He gives everyone there a personal experience and I know I can trust his knowledge over any trainer I've ever been with because he keeps up with new research and the evolution of his craft. I trust him 110% with my fitness goals, especially when it comes to form, balance, and posture because a lot of other trainers out there just care about you going through the motions of your sets vs actually teaching you correctly.

I was always hesitant to hire a personal trainer thinking that it wasn't worth the time or money. I am so glad to have been so incredibly wrong. Rap is an absolutely amazing trainer to work with. He tailors your workouts to your goals and is always mindful to customize any exercise to your needs and body. He makes it fun while motivating you to push and better yourself. With him so far I have gotten stronger, started to tone up, greatly increased my cardio / stamina, improved my balance, lost almost 20 pounds and over 4 inches off the waist. He really makes working out fun and something I look forward to doing. If you are looking for a personal trainer who is professional, motivating, fun, down to earth, knowledgeable, exceptionally competent and will get you results (so long as you do your part) then Rap is your man.

Rap takes personal training to a different level. Throughout my 5 months with him, I was able to reach my various goals which centered around correcting my posture in order to up my tennis game. As an added bonus, my little aches and pains have not bothered me like usual!

My wife and I have been working out with RAP Fitness for the last eight months with wonderful results. I was having some chronic back issues and Ramon was able to customize a workout that built up my core and other muscle groups to take the burden off of my back. He varies the workout routine to keep it interesting while maintaining the high intensity needed to meet your fitness goals. You couldn't choose a better personal trainer!

Rap was the first personal trainer I've ever used. I used to work out growing up but fell off the wagon after college when the real world hit. My brother was getting married and I wasn't happy with how I looked. I went in to the personal training with some skepticism but that went away very quickly after a few sessions. First and foremost, the workouts were never boring or dull. They changed each time I went, which let me hit all of my muscle groups. I think one time, I even had to push Rap across the gym floor on a sled! He has a process, and I followed it to a T. First, we worked on my posture with corrective exercises and stretching. Then we worked on balance. After that was done, we worked on strength and agility. I can say that he provided me with a great foundation for working out after leaving. I am now working out 3-4 times a week, and using a lot of the exercises and tips that Rap taught me. You won't be disappointed, give him a try!

I’ve been working out with Patricia for a year and am so thankful to her for supporting, motivating and challenging me all the time. When I went to TYB my goals were losing some weight and getting help to change my eating habits, but I got much more than I expected. Patricia is a perfect personal trainer because she always focuses on my goals and comes up with a workout which is challenging, but really effective. She also demonstrates good form and explains what I should or should not feel, so I can do each move correctly and safe. After a couple weeks I realized that I improved a lot, I got stronger and more energized in addition, my body shape got closer to my goals :) Patricia always pushes my limits and motivates me which helps me a lot when I feel I can’t do one more. She is more than a personal trainer, she is a workout partner who takes care of the right exercises working the best for my body, she gives me advices and tracks my diet, supports and encourages me to do my best. I can’t imagine working out without her supervision, motivation and company anymore.

The experience I’ve had with RAP Fitness has been nothing short of wonderful. Since starting my journey here I feel stronger, more confident and have toned up, all thanks to my awesome personal trainer Chris! Chris has taken into account my overall goals while tailoring to my needs during each individual session. He makes sure to ask how I am feeling and adjusts our workouts accordingly. He knows when to push me and makes sure I’m using proper form, which I appreciate as it prevents injury. Chris is patient, knowledgeable, flexible, kind and upbeat. He makes working out fun and enjoyable and I am so grateful for his guidance and support. Regardless of what mood I am in before walking into RAP Fitness, I always feel great walking out. The other trainers are friendly, the gym is clean and the overall atmosphere is welcoming and completely judgement free. If you are looking for a place to check all of your fitness needs boxes off, this is the place for you!
