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 Crown Point personal trainers

Chad is a great personal trainer and has an incredible attitude about fitness. His schedule is flexible and accommodating and workout methods are efficient. I got a better workout with Chad in 30 mins than I did in an hour by myself. I highly recommend Chad Roth as a personal trainer.

Chad is very good at motivating, which is why I chose to use a personal trainer. He is also very involved in counseling re: diet and cardio outside of training. I have not met goals for cardio and diet, but that is my fault and he is helping me to correct that!

Chad is awesome. He’ll kick your butt, but in a good way. He was always on time, professional, & very helpful. I’d definitely recommend him to anyone looking for a personal trainer.

Chad has a great personality, and he seems like a great personal trainer. I've only trained with him once, but I can definitely tell that he's an amazing trainer by seeing his other reviews and pictures. He was the first to reach out to me on Thumbtack, and he seemed like the best. The only reason I rated him 4 stars is because his pricing isn't what I thought it would be. I didn't know it was $25 per session only if you went 4+ times a week. I'm not complaining about the price at all, I know that's how he makes his money! If I could afford this and still lived in the area, I would totally still train with him. He definitely knows what he's talking about and I wish him the best!

My husband and I recently moved to Crown Point and decided to forego a gym membership to workout at home. Workouts were mundane and not too productive so we decided to search for a personal trainer. We came across Ben's website and decided to give him a try. After meeting with him to discuss our ages (51 and 48), past injuries, and fitness goals, we began training in February. We train with Ben at our home 2 days a week, and he leaves a 3rd workout for us to do on our own. We have been impressed with Ben's knowledge, attention to detail, work ethic, and the creativity of his workouts. We look forward to the sessions which are challenging and well thought out. Ben teaches proper technique, adapts the exercises to help with past injuries, and monitors our form during each set. We have worked out at gyms for many years with varying results, but Ben has taught us a much more effective way to train. With Ben's help, we reached our initial fitness goals and continue to improve our strength, fitness, and energy levels. Most importantly, the positive experience and solid results have motivated us to stay committed to health and fitness. Thanks Ben!!

My experience with Chad couldn't have gone any better! I was reluctant to go back to the gym after having my third child in September this year, feeling very self-conscious and out of shape. The first week was difficult to get through; however, by the second week I couldn't wait to get to the gym! I've spent the last couple years dealing with anxiety and depression issues that medicine just wouldn't work for; and even though the symptoms haven't completely disappeared, I feel better than I've ever felt from any kind of medication. Since I've had my baby in September this year, I've lost a total of 41lbs and I'm still losing fat and gaining muscle. The workouts were always challenging, and there wasn't one time I felt like my training was easy. Because of this, I don't think I would have seen the results as quickly as I did without having a highly qualified and patient trainer like Chad. The weight training and healthy habits that I learned from Chad will stick with me for many years to come, and I no longer think twice about walking into a gym. I highly recommend Chad for personal training to anyone, at any age, with any physical/mental obstacle that is holding them back from going to the gym to make themselves healthier!

I've never been one to go to the gym or workout because I would always start and never see any results. When I started with Andrew I wasn't sure what to expect. But after a month of having him as my personal trainer I always wonder why I haven't started sooner! He always keeps me motivated and makes working out fun! The workouts are personalized to what I can do and he encourages me to push harder and do what I never thought I could do! Long story short, he's awesome and I definitely recommend him to everyone! And on the plus side after a month I was down 8 pounds and 5inches from my waist!🙌🏻🙌🏻😁
