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.

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.

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.

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 have only been working with Frank for a short time. However I can tell you this he is one of the best personal trainers I have worked with. He cares about his clients, communicates in a timely manner and makes sure you get everything you need out of a session. I would highly recommended him to anyone searching for a personal trainer.

I must say, working with Doc has been one of the best personal training experiences I've ever had. The facility is not at all intimidating, but makes for a space where you want to keep going back. Doc challenges you for the better, but not in a strenuous way. I'm excited to continue this journey with Doc and see where it leads me.

John is amazing. We've had a personal trainer before and after moving never thought we'd find another trainer who took such good care of their clients. We were very excited to start with John and truly have only great things to say about him as a person and trainer. We feel fortunate to have someone understand our goals and lifestyle and truly makes an effort to keep us on track, while keeping the sessions fun and lighthearted. We are not fitness buffs; just young parents trying to get back in shape and lead a healthy lifestyle. He gets that and help us reach our goals (which keep evolving).

This is my first time requesting the services of a personal trainer and I was a bit apprehensive at first but after my first free consultation with Doc and explaining my concerns with my physique, health and exercing and he made me feel completely at ease. He was extremely knowledgeable  in his profession and knows what he's talking about. We discussed my medical history and what id be comfortable with in regards to a trainer. He had paired me up with his head trainer DeAri. DeAri is by far an amazing trainer, she's professional with me from the start and focuses on me during all of our training in sessions. She's attentive and focuses on how I'm performing each workout and checks in with me to make sure I'm not overworking my injury or if I'm in pain. I've been with DeAri for almost 2 months now and I really enjoy it so far.

Met with Doc for a consultation yesterday he was professional, compassionate, and has a spirit of excellence. He also is highly knowledgeable as it relates to business, fitness, and nutrition. The facility is awesome clean with updated equipment, and did I say clean. I can tell Doc takes great pride in his facility and his trainers. I sense he really cares about one's overall success in meeting their goals safely. It is with immense excitement that I have selected him as my personal trainer and I cannot wait to get started.

Kevin is the best!!! I feel Kevin brings everything that a professional trainer should bring at a table, He knows your body type, he is not one of those online certified trainer, Kevin takes his knowlegde his passion by working you out in zones that truly need it, I went from zero energy to having so much energy, I look forward to working out because the workouts are not boring, Kevin is with you by your side to make sure your doing the exercise right, I have had many trainers before, Who will be on their phone while they make you exercise, nd frankly dont care, but kevin takes his job to the next level, so much that he even helps relax muscles when they are in pain, he teaches you streching, balance and so much more, I am glad found Kevin as my personal trainer!

Doc is the most knowledgable and caring personal trainer I've had the pleasure of meeting. He genuinely wants to help people reach their life goals and has the experience and resources to do so. I have several injuries that no other person has been able to help me with until I started training with Doc. I feel as though I have transformed into a brand new person and have never felt this happy with my results! I have100% faith in his abilities to help people make positive changes in their lives. If you are interested in becoming stronger, healthier, happier, and more confident, you should reach out to Doc. He will customize a unique program that is right for you and that is based off of your needs.

JT is an excellent personal trainer. He also does meal preparation which I did not utilize, but it was an option. JT was able to coordinate around my work schedule and arrives on time ready to go. He asked me my goals we got to work. Very professional presentation and charges fairly. I love the online monitoring and training he provides. If you want “homework” on your off days he will give it to you. And yes, you could go on YouTube and seek out an online trainer and follow their workouts, but here’s the difference ... you probably won’t do that heavier weight or extra rep it you don’t have real live trainer. I’m happy with my results so far- I fit into my clothes better, I have lost weight, body fat and working to achieve a normal BMI. I also have increased muscle strength, more endurance, a lower my heart rate and more flexibility. For instance..luggage is no longer difficult to carry or lift in the overhead compartment when flying, and it’s easier to make one trip carrying groceries ... cause now you can handle the weight. All in all, you have to be dedicated but JT will help you meet you goals. It’s apparent that training and healthy eating is not just a hobby for him, it’s his passion and he is very much at home in a gym. It’s definitely worth it. A good hire.

I was very apprehensive about hiring a personal trainer because I know that it can be costly. However I needed the one on one attention and response to my workouts to limit injuries and to see genuine results. Since I started working with Doc, I have truly been happy with my progress. The orientation made me feel very comfortable and confident in my weight loss journey and I admit that I am still excited about working out! I have been working under Doc's head trainer DeAri and she has been awesome at starting me off slowly then progressively making my work outs more challenging. I really like her patience with me and her attention to the way I'm feeling and how my body is reacting to every exercise. She truly pushes me to new heights but her awesome and silly personality make me feel as though I am just having fun as I go. It has been almost a month working with Doc and DeAri and every week I am excited for new challenges!
