These are unprecedented times and I think everyone is living with some sort of uncertainty in their lives between wanting to keep their normal routines but doing their part in preventing the spread of COVID-19. Gyms are just not safe enough to go back to until there is a proven safe vaccine and therapeutics. I have added Virtual Personal Training and my In Person Clients are loving it! Perhaps the biggest pro of online fitness coaching is the cost. It won’t drain the wallet nearly as much as an in-person trainer and therefore makes personal training accessible. For someone who’s a self-starter, an online trainer can provide a great option for accountability and guidance. If you’re used to working out on your own but need help formulating a workout regimen, having a trainer to support you and report to weekly or bi-weekly can help you get, and stay on, the track to reach your goals. Online training is also more flexible and safer in this new pandemic world. Gyms will never be safe enough from COVID-19 and you are risking your life and other every time you step into the gym. Until there is a vaccine or herd immunity you can say good bye to the gym. When the lock down happened my clients felt they would not get the same attention and effective workout as they did when I was there in person but quickly realized that it is as great as ever and some plan on staying virtual because of the more affordable price. Hybrid Training is also another option for those who live in the areas I service for my 1:1 clients. Hybrid would be a few sessions in person to start and then move online with a 1:1 session once a month. Personal training Sessions can be just as powerful as it is in person. I specializes in working with those who are interested in being fit and healthy, seniors looking to regain their functional fitness (Trained through the Functional Aging Institute), balance as well as those looking firm and tone. I love working with clients coming back from injuries or think they can not work out because of physical issues. I travels to the homes for personal training to work with clients to regain their physical and mental health. I am a warm and empathetic trainer that understands what you are dealing with. I have been in the fitness industry for 17 years motivating and helping people just like you reach their goals to feel better. I am doing personal training in the privacy of your home or Apartment gym in the town of Fairfax and the immediate surrounding area. This is also a great option for those with social anxiety, poor body image, do not like large gyms, do not have the time to go to the gym or just want someone to motivate them to workout. I will come up with a personal plan for you to get stronger, lean and to start to feel better about yourself. For more information feel free to contact me via my website and I will be glad to help you. I look forward to working with you! The best thing I like about my job is making that emotional connection that brings someone to a higher level to achieving their fitness goal.See more

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

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.

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.

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.
