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 think I am on week 6 or so and I am seeing tremendous results. This gym has a family feel to it and the trainers really work with you on putting together a customized program and not letting you slack off. I got in terrible shape during quarantine and was completely new to personal training; now I look and feel much better and it didn't cost a fortune.

I hired Kate a few months ago as a personal trainer. She's really great to work with. Each workout is different from the last and tailored to me and my goals/ability. She's on time, easy to schedule with and keeps the workouts as entertaining as they can be. I highly recommend.

Met with Brandon for a consultation and was impressed by his willingness to listen and asses the issues I’m having at face value, and not try to force me into some generic plan. I hired him after interviewing with multiple trainers first, and now we are working together (using his expertise) on a plan that’s really right for me and my personal needs. So far I’m already feeling the results in just a short time- 5 stars, great trainer.

I have been using Tony since Feb 2013. This is my first experience having a personal trainer, and I'm more than pleased. From pricing, to convenience, to results Tony has shown that he is very interested in pleasing & building a healthy relationship with the client. In addition, Tony listens to the needs & constraints of the client, and builds a program that works for you. Specifically I had knee surgery & was diagnosed with arthritis in 2012, so I was concerned about taking up any strenuous activity that may cause remission of my injury. Despite this potential roadblock Tony built a program that has not only shown results but also incrememtally increased the strength of my knee. So he's not only a personal trainer but has also become a aid in my mich needed recovery. In addition, Tony incorporated techniques of boxing upon request - so there is never a boring session. I will continue to use & recommend Tony to help in a transition to a healthy lifestyle due to his expertise, continuous motivation, attentiveness, creativity, affordability.

I have loved working with Teri over the past month! She is passionate and knowledgeable about personal training. She really takes the time to listen to what your goals are and works hard to make sure each workout is catered towards your needs. I have erb’s palsy, a physical limitation where I can straighten my left arm. Although Teri had never heard of it before, she was excited and enthusiastic about helping me find workouts that were adapted, yet effective in strengthening. I was working muscles that I haven’t worked in years! She’s very personable and enjoys seeing you succeed.

I am so lucky to have found Reggie at Streamline Fitness and just wished I had found him years earlier. In a panic over my upcoming December 4th wedding, I knew I needed help! There was something personable about his message to me introducing himself. I scheduled an assessment appointment with him. Reggie evaluated my strength, endurance and balance (which was pretty bad) as well as my goals (lose weight for my wedding). He also sent me an easy to follow meal plan that would help get me to my goal weight. On my first day with Reggie, I had no clue what I was getting into or where to even begin. Reggie was very caring and understanding of my limitations but continued to believe in me and that I could do it and promised that it would get better if I kept coming back. I must say, he was right! Almost 4 weeks in, I am amazed how good I feel and that I am even excited to go see him, even the 6 am sessions. He switches it up and everyday is something different which keep it fun and exciting. Everybody there is super nice and make you feel comfortable because they are also doing the same thing. I can’t wait to see how GREAT I am going to look at my Wedding and I will have Reggie to thank for that! I recommend everybody to hire Reggie as their personal trainer, it will CHANGE YOUR LIFE!
