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.

Bentley is one of the best personal trainers I’ve ever had. He really cares and wants you to accomplish your goals and works hard to make that happen.
Thumbtack Customer
Allan is a great personal trainer and he helped me to lose 20 lbs in 3 months. I couldn't be happier with the results! In the past, I've struggled to stick to a fitness program due to a knee injury that always slowed me down or stopped me completely, but Allan is very knowledgeable and knew exactly how to work around my limitations. I've worked with other personal trainers, but Allan is hands down the most professional and patient.

Personal trainer👍👍. Eric asked me what my goals were and where I wanted to start training first. I explained that I felt my core muscles needed more strength and that I would like to begin with my upper body. He is listens and explains everything very well. 🤗👀

I couldn't ask for a better personal trainer than Eric! He took the time to understand my fitness goals, and create a unique workout and nutrition plan just for me. I would recommend him to anyone!
William D.
If you are looking for someone to push you to reach your fitness goals, then look no further because Eric is an excellent personal trainer. This is personal training done right and this is how it should be. It’s a one-on-one session in a large space with a great variety of equipment available to you and what’s better is you have it all to yourself. Which means you do not have to worry about other folks being in your way. Would highly recommend him despite the little time I have had with him (about 2 weeks). 10 out of 10! Thanks Eric!
Thumbtack Customer

I started with Svetness Personal Training 1 month ago. They have taught me how important cardio exercise and the correct diet to eat is. I have really lost some weight in just one month. The management staff worked with me to tell me when and when I cannot eat carbs and what difference it has made. Thanks to my trainer for the workouts.

My boyfriend and I had put on some weight since we started dating, so I decided that I wanted to surprise him for Christmas with a personal trainer for both of us. I started searching and found Bentley. He has been nothing short of amazing for us! He is very knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. He trains both of us at the same time for no extra charge and no lack of work on either of us. He is very friendly and helps the time fly by. Before you know it, you’re dripping sweat and headed out the door ready to come back for your next session. He works with you and helps you to reach your goals. We’ve been seeing him for almost two months now and both already see results. Anyone who is looking for a personal trainer for yourself or a couple, look no further than Bentley!
Lisa B.
He's very kind and thoughtful, and extremely educated in his field. He is able to assess and target the areas that need attention and get the maximum results. It's ability to motivate you is extraordinary at best. A great confidence booster. If you're looking for someone who is trustworthy and easy to work with Bentley is your personal trainer !!!
