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 look forward to every session at Non Stop with the goal of learning something new. David is a down to earth trainer and I have never felt a inch of nervousness since day 1 with him. He pays attention to form and believes in everyone he trains. This was my very first time working with a personal trainer and I would do it all over again with him! The overall atmosphere of the studio is positive and love to see everyone progress.

I will start out with KEITH IS AN EXCEPTIONAL TRAINER! PLEASE DO YOURSELF A FAVOR AND READ WHAT I WROTE BELOW!? You will save yourself a ton of aggravation trying different trainers!? (and just to clarify, I never met Keith before and had no idea the prodigious results I would get training with him)......SO, HERE WE GO........ I have been working out with weights and/or training martial arts almost my entire life (I am almost 50 years old). I BROKE MY BACK about 11 years ago (martial arts injury) and have undergone a number of surgeries (including spinal fusions). I have tried EVERYTHING possible to get back to normal or even semi-normal, such as medications, surgeries, injections, physical therapy (numerous times), acupuncture, chiropractors, massage, exercise, yoga, AND PERSONAL TRAINERS etc......with little or no positive results!! :( I have been training with Keith for about 8-9 months now and the results have been AMAZING!! When I started training with Keith, I couldn't walk for more than 3-5 minutes without having to sit down due to the pain in my lower back (it WAS debilitating)....NOW, I can walk for 30 MINUTES or more WITHOUT HAVING TO SIT OR USE A CANE to walk!! Keith is a brilliant professional, who cares about how I feel, is open-minded and uncommonly knowledgeable! He is flexible and really listens to my feedback..........His methods have given me HOPE again! Due to him, I have made OUTSTANDING strides and see that my future probably does NOT include a wheelchair any longer :). I don't want to use the word MIRACLE, but it is pretty darn close!!! I can't say enough about his knowledge of the interaction of every muscle, tendon, nerve, bone etc.....and I know as a matter of fact that if I had worked with another trainer (because I have in the past), I would not have gotten such remarkable results in such a short time! I most likely would have gotten the same results I got on my own, because I am very knowledgeable about the human body myself due to all my experience in the gym/martial arts (I have trained a number of people in my past, just not professionally). I am so fortunate I hired him! Actually, thank goodness I hired him! He has literally made a HUGE difference in my life/lifestyle and I plan on training with him for a very long time to come! I honestly would pay double what he charges (shhhh....dont tell him that... haha) had I known the results I would get! If you want to get in shape, lose weight, body-build, power lift, just want to learn new techniques, or especially if you have any sports related injuries, I CANNOT RECOMMEND HIM ENOUGH!!!!! :) He has literally changed my life! If you aren't convinced, hire him for a couple session and I am confident you will be pleased with your training results!
