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.

David is excellent. Great work ethics. Keeps me motivated and helped me lose 7 pounds so far. Started working with him in May. He is extremely professional and a fun trainer. I made the right decision to have him as a trainer. My husband and I both train with him. I always had personal trainers in the past but he is one of the best I have had!

I would highly recommend Bob to anyone who is looking to find a personal trainer. I have had several personal trainers and Bob has been the best. He knows how to give you a great workout and pushes you to excel but nothing you can't handle. Bob has a wonderful approach when working with his clients. He not only includes the physical part but the whole body. Bob makes sure you are doing well in other areas of your life like emotionally and mentally. He knows if you are struggling in other areas of your life it can affect your workouts and nutrition. I have anxiety and Bob is always there to talk it out with me during my warmup if I need. I also struggle with emotional eating and Bob has never made me feel shame for that. We count the tiny wins/choices I make and just keep trying to improve each day. Whether you have had a personal trainer before or if this is your first time, Bob will be there to help and support you. He will personalize your workouts and nutrition to your needs. I highly recommend Bob as a personal trainer!!

I could not have asked for a better experience with a personal trainer. Travis made getting back into a workout routine simple as I looked forward to each and every session with him. He truly cares about your goals and pushes you to be the best version of yourself. Unfortunately, my schedule changed so I could no longer workout with Travis, but he catered a workout regimen just for me and continually follows up to make sure I’m doing well and beating my goals. 10/10 would recommend

I came to Chad after two years of running almost daily and feeling frustrated that my fitness had plateaued. I knew I needed to add resistance training to my routine, but was hesitant to do it on my own and unwilling to pay for a gym membership just to have the privilege of then also paying for a personal trainer. Chad was the perfect answer to all those problems. He has customized my training every session to keep things interesting and challenge me. Like most adult women, I have struggled with disordered eating habits, and Chad really helped me with that by making me focus on getting enough fiber and protein. Thanks to Chad's guidance, my nutrition has improved a lot, I'm drinking more water, I feel stronger and healthier than I ever have in my life, and I think I look better than I ever have, too. Chad has a great personality and it's easy to stay engaged, motivated, and accountable while working with him. I can't recommend him highly enough!

I started out super fluffy and out of shape. After 2 months, I'm now only sort of fluffy and almost have the strength and endurance I did when I was a teenager. I feel amazing. Ken pushes me to the very edge of my ability, and just when I start settling in and getting comfortable, he switches it up and pushes me to the next level. There's no way I could have achieved this on my own. He is personable, down to earth, and non-judemental...all very important to me. I've never hired a personal trainer before, but I can't imagine it going any better. If I had it my way, I'd hire Ken for the rest of my adult life.

I've being working with Ken for the past three months and would very highly recommend him as a personal trainer. Right off the bat, Ken assessed my biggest weakness (balance) and over the span of a few weeks patiently built up my balance so that I was in a good position to move into more challenging exercises. Now, he's working with me in all my goofy awkwardness to make sure that I develop the correct technique while still getting a good sweaty workout. Ken also asks questions and listens. It's very clear he's aware of my fitness goals and completely supports them. He'll keep me on track without being intrusive (or judgmental) by asking important questions like "Did you do cardio today?" and "How's your food intake been?" More importantly, he's consistent with asking me how I feel every session and then modifies the workout to make sure I don't overtax any muscle groups or injure myself. And Guess what! I'm seeing amazing results! Better yet - people are noticing!! Since I starting working with Ken, my body fat has decreased by 4.73% and I've dropped 30 pounds! ... Watch out Little Black Dress - here I come :)
