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 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.

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.

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 with Cory last week and instantly new this was going to be a fit. He strives to find and set up workouts that are for my fitness level, adjusting accordingly to any ups and downs I may have that day, while still sticking to hitting my personal goals. He is very personable and responds quickly to any questions I may have. Right now I'm doing 2 in person sessions and 2 at home sessions a week. Excited to see where this journey will go but I highly recommend him for any personal training needs.

I just had my first session with Anna and she is spectacular! She really concentrates on you as an individual, and tailors the exercises to fit your personal needs. I very much appreciated her approachable personality and her tips on healthy eating as well. I'm really looking forward to seeing results, because I can already see how effective the training will be. If you're searching for a comfortable environment to greatly improve yourself, then Anna is your lady!

Brad has been working with me as a personal trainer for a few months. He has been great at helping me understand the connection between food, fitness and overall health. I am over 50 and I think I am learning for the first time how to exercise. Brad has designed a program that works for me. I have always been active, but struggled with weight gain and just generally being out of shape due to a very busy lifestyle, stress, etc. I'm looking forward to reaching my goals!

Raj responded quickly to my inquiry & started with a detailed initial eval to understand my tastes, habits, fitness level, and overall health. He keeps trainings interesting using a variety of exercises. During my first 12 sessions/6 weeks, I lost 13 pounds (went from 230 to 217). This morning I weighed in at 211 and cant be more excited!! My scale also measures body composition... Measurements show that my muscle mass has increased meaning what I lost is body fat which is wonderful. I was surprised to experience feeling more flexible and in some areas more firm (thighs/upper legs) and I definitely notice Im stronger (helped buddies pack/unpack a UHaul and felt GREAT!) Raj is a great motivator and takes interest in me reaching my goals. He's observant and not afraid to show "tough love" to keep me on track (for example, he was Not Pleased when I cancelled two workouts in a row... He sent me a VERY motivating email & got me back on track!!) I really enjoy his training techniques, especially since everything is done in the comfort of my home. He explains and demonstrates each move really well, and ensures I perform them with proper form, speed, and repetitions that best suit me. He modifies any moves I find difficult so that I feel encouraged to continue. He utilizes all kinds of movements to target the entire body. He gives valuable nutrition tips too -- He even sent me some tasty recipes that were easy to prepare, and most important - healthy! I believe his science background and his overall knowledge about exercises and health makes him a great personal trainer. Raj is hands down an excellent trainer and I whole-heartedly recommend him to anyone who wants to improve fitness and health (without sweating too much, either!!) THANK YOU RAJ!!! :)
