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 am so grateful and appreciate Jerry for his commitment to me. He is exactly the type of trainer I've been looking for. Someone who not only wants the best for me physically but is patient with me during my workouts. He understands the journey for losing the weight and getting fit is a great deal for me which comes with personal (emotional) challenges. I have fun with Jerry and enjoy my personal training time with him!!

I’ve been working with Jerry for a few weeks now, and he’s provided exactly what I was looking for (and then some). The personal, one-on-one training, and emphasis on safety and form take his sessions to the next level. Visible results in surprisingly little time. Would highly recommend any time.

I've been working out with Jerry for seven weeks, and the progress I'm experiencing is fantastic. Jerry's passion for fitness and people is apparent through his ability to make me feel at ease and excited to exercise. He's also a great coach at supporting me to reach my personal fitness goals. Jerry knows my strength limits and will always encourage me to push past my current limits. Working with Jerry has been one of the best health investments I have made. I would recommend Jerry to anyone looking for a personal trainer that's fully invested in helping you reach your personal fitness goals.

After researching several personal trainers in my area, I reached out to Ben at Bodies by Ben in the Jungle Gym. He responded promptly and we set up a time for a free consultation. During our consultation he addressed my goals, eating habits, health, injuries, and recommended a training schedule. Without hesitation I signed up, when I started I had no idea where to begin. Ben was patient, supportive and motivated me when I started to slack. He is an amazing trainer who is both personable, knowledgeable and flexible with scheduling. It’s the best feeling in the world to fit back into clothes that were too little a yr or even months ago. If you want a push, results and no judgment definitely check out Bodies by Ben you will not be disappointed.

Asako is the best personal trainer that I've ever worked with! I have been working with her almost for 2 years. She creates best exercise menu for me and gives advice for my eating habit too. I highly recommend Asako to someone who would like to get fit, advice for healthy life style and need help for your physical problems such as back pain.

Jerry is a very personable, knowledgeable personal trainer.He tailors the workout for you and your goals.My favorite part of his training is that he knows when to push you and move to the next level of fitness.My goal was to feel stronger.I had a bad fall a month into training and I was able to catch myself and fall without hurting myself ( too much) because he noticed that I had issues with balance so we worked a lot on that. I'm thrilled at how far I progressed in just 2 months -I already signed up for another month. Im 60 and feel stronger than I have in 20 years!!

I am so glad I found Dru. I have never had a personal trainer before, unless you count the Drill instructors at Marine Boot Camp. To be perfectly honest I found Dru's approach to physical fitness far more appealing and ultimately more rewarding. I approached him with a few goals in mind, weight loss, energy recovery, and strengthening. What I appreciated about Dru was that he listened to my concerns about my health and body and took them into consideration when designing my custom workout routine that I would be following for the next several weeks. Dru also put together a comprehensive and easy to follow dietary plan suited to my body type that would help me achieve my goals. This was not a crash diet but something I was eased into while my body adjusted to the change and while I formed the habits needed to sustain the eating habits. If you are interested in a personal trainer who walks the talk and is as interested in you achieving your goals as much as you are, then Dru is your guy.

***Among many other positive qualities, Dan is an expert in his trade with the utmost professionalism.*** He responded immediately and within hours of my post in search of a personal trainer. I was most impressed by his desire to listen to my goals and to understand me as an individual rather than a client; I feel like I've known Dan for years. His willingness to work within my budget and customize a plan that worked for both of us should not be overlooked! We're a week into a four month training plan, and I can already feel my body responding positively to this perfectly tailored plan. Working out with him in the gym is fun, inspirational, and best of all educational. I wanted, more than anything else, a trainer who would teach me how to create work out plans that work for me so that I can carry that knowledge with me in the future, and I've found that in Dan. Hire him today!

This is my first time working with a personal trainer and I’m so glad to have found Dru. He’s very professional and responsive to your questions and is flexible with your schedule. I especially appreciate his holistic approach to health and wellness, emphasizing putting real foods in your body to reach your goals. He also emphasizes long term sustainable growth while continually pushing you in order to reach the best version of yourself. I’ve been working with him for about two months now and my dietary habits have changed tremendously. If you are thinking of getting a trainer, don’t hesitate to contact Dru. He is accommodating to all ages and levels of fitness. Seriously, this is the best investment in yourself that you can make! I can’t wait to see where I’m at in another 2 months!

One of the best decisions I've made was to hire Ben as my personal trainer. I've worked with many other trainers since I moved to Hawaii in 2013 and let me just say...after just one month of training with Ben I have lost about 5lbs and I am seeing great progress with my body. I came to Ben because at one point I was over 300lbs. I was able to loose about 160lbs or so, but I needed help to tone up so I seeked help from Ben. Oh boy how lucky was I that I did that! Ben was able to write out a nutritional game plan for me...never would I have thought being on a diet meant eating so much! In the past I had the mentality that everytime food went in my mouth I would gain my weight back. Ben made me understand that I needed to feed my body properly in order for my body to burn fat. No one has ever thought me this in the past. I feel more confident now about eating. Ben thought me that eating healthy can also be delicious. Ben has a passion for what he does. Once you train with him you will see the passion he has for you to meet your goal. I look forward to every training session I have with him because there is always progress to see everytime. Thanks to Ben I am confident with my training sessions and I am also confident as an individual. No amount of money can describe the results you will see. If you are looking for someone who will be dedicated to seeing you progress, Ben is your man! He will motivate you and will not let you give up! Thank you Ben for what you are doing for me. I will forever be thankful for you!

So I don’t usually do reviews but I have to tell you about this guy, Dru. He has been my personal trainer for a little over a month now. If you’re looking for someone to kick your ass in the gym, this is the trainer for you. His workouts always have me feeling like I put in serious work. Dru changes up each workout so you never reach that comfort zone. Not only is he creating these great workouts but he instructs you on how to lift properly and describes why we are doing particular lifts. Dru provides a great balance with working out and the chit chat. If you’re wanting to go to the gym and talk all day then he’s not the guy for you. He’s here to do work and to make sure you’re working too. So if you want that beach body then Dru and Island Body Fitness can get you there, but be prepared to work.

I have been a client of Ben's for a few months and from the very beginning it has been consistent quality. You get a professional, but also a genuine individual. He is not afraid to be a human being with you - share in laughs, talk about upcoming plans, offer his resources and connections if they might help you fulfill a goal, etc. This is not an act he plays, but who he is. That is evident by the environment within the gym. Everyone - whether a client of his or not - greets you, will engage with you, contributes to the welcoming environment. It sounds too good to be true but it really is a pleasant place to get personal training. He's very flexible in all aspects. What are your goals? Have your goals changed? Do we need to deviate from the usual today to work on something in particular? Whether you have a specific plan in mind or need help with what to work on and how, he's more than capable of assisting. He's also finding more ways to improve the services offered all the time.
