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.

Excellent trainer and very kind person. Very reliable but also flexible when required. Focuses on what you want to improve/work on and always designs new, interesting training routines to ensure that training does not get boring. Referred him to friends including my sister who has trained for many years with several personal trainers and all were super happy with Muhaimin. Highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for personal training in New York.

Nick has been a great personal trainer - motivating and knowledgeable about both fitness and nutrition. I hired Nick 5 months ago for two sessions per week, and have been very happy with the results. I have always hated working out, but Nick makes it bearable and also the results have been great. I'd recommend Nick to anybody looking for a great personal trainer.

Herbie is a very able Personal Trainer, with ample experience and good all round programs. I saw better result with Herbie than my prior trainer, probably as Herbie is more thorough and requires more. He is a very light and nice personality.

Scott is a great trainer. I told him about my knee problem and he catered the routine to address that. This was my first experience with personal training, and it was a positive one. The intensity of workout was just right for me. I look forward to future sessions with Scott.
This is a total scam rip-off. The initial meeting is not even with an actual trainer but a salesman. He barely gets in the door before he hands you a badly used and abused laminated price sheet. Second sentence out of his mouth was how to buy his protein shakes. Didn't care one bit about what my actual personal training goals were. Despite the name personal trainer, this is a one size fits all training. I specifically stated what areas I will not work and why and he said he would not do that. He said it's total body despite physical limitations due to surgery. I told him to leave.

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Alex and his training style. He is knowledgeable, a highly skilled trainer, and understands what it takes for him to help you achieve your goals. He gives 110% during every session and really cares about the success of every single one of his clients. His sessions are always fun and engaging and he always pushes you to do better and to reach your maximum potential. Alex is flexible and willing to work with you based on your hectic schedule. I have been active my entire life and I am extremely picky when it comes to my personal training. Choosing a trainer is something I do not do lightly. I chose Alex because he is exceptional at his craft. I recommend Alex to anyone who is looking for a personal trainer.

I would give more than 5 stars if that is possible. I've met many trainers in NYC but Brett is by far the best Personal Trainer you can find. He is experienced, caring and flexible. He caters all his workouts to your exact needs and will deliver on results as long as you stick with him.

Niko is a fantastic trainer. His energy and dedication to training is palpable. He strives to build a professional and personal relationship with his clients which creates a great atmosphere for training. I used to dread going to the gym and now I am genuinely excited when I get to our workouts because I know I will leave feeling better and stronger than when I arrived. Thank you Niko!!

Ergi is an excellent personal trainer. He's been working with me for a month now and I can see real results already. Ergi has helped me get over the novice weight lifter's ego of lifting too much weight, he's corrected my form, and he's provided very helpful and attainable nutrition guidance without micromanaging what I eat. I sought out a personal trainer after hitting a plateau after working out on my own for the better part of a year. I'm so glad I found Ergi! If you're looking for a patient, encouraging, knowledgable, and accommodating trainer, look no further.

Ahmet is more than just personal trainer. He is a guide on your own personal journey towards your mental and physical health goals. This was a vulnerable experience for me but Ahmet made me feel immediately comfortable and created the environment for focus. Sessions are varied and he pushes (always) at the right times that matter. Cannot rate highly enough.

In addition, he is supportive and a great motivator. I highly recommend him. Felicia M Ianniello
