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 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.

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.

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.

Dewayne is an excellent personal trainer! I was looking for a personal trainer, and after looking through a lot of trainer's profiles I decided to move forward with Dewayne. His training style is unlike anyone I have ever worked with before. He pushes me to work as hard as I can during the workout. Dewayne really understands what he is doing. I promise if you work hard and put forth the effort with Dewayne you will see results. I know I have in only a few weeks! :)

Ergi is the first trainer i have. I have already been training with Ergi for more than 2 months. The methods he uses is really gonna change your body. I came to him with really weak strength exercise and he helped me with weight control and strength. And he also gives you nutrition support. I highly recommend Ergi as personal trainer. i am pretty sure he is going to be my trainer for a very long time.

Daniel is a amazing personal trainer. Once I started training with him I have his cell phone number and I text him with questions whenever they pop up and he responds very quickly. Sometimes I will even be in the gym in middle of a workout and I will have a question so I will text him and he will respond right away. I highly recommend Daniel if you are looking for a good trainer.

Awesome young woman, committed and knowledgable. Working with Alexis was the first time I worked with a Personal Trainer outside of a gym and it was great seeing how many ways I could work out at home or in a park and get the results I wanted. I achieved my goal and plan to continue my fitness journey. I would highly recommend Alexis.

Jordan's approach to personal fitness makes him the ideal trainer. He is genuinely interested in people. He approaches his role as to that of a coach and not a drill sergeant. He is able to encourage outcomes without resorting to yelling, barking or demeaning and he emphasizes partnership over hierarchy. Further, he takes a wholistic view of his clients as people, striving to be mindful of the full range of their goals, and seeking to understand how their personal fitness goals fit into the larger package. He is also aware that exercise is only one part of a larger health and wellness effort and blends that awareness into a fuller program to increase successful outcomes.

He is very thorough while teaching Muay Thai, explaining how and why fighting stance, blocks, punches and kicks are done. My schedule isn't always static and he's very accommodating. Pays attention to if you're getting fatigued or if you still have a little more in the tank when deciding breaks. Good conditioning and stretches. Excellent personal trainer and would definitely recommend.

I cannot say enough about how amazing Carmen is as a personal trainer. I initially hired her to help me rehab from 2 different running injuries. As a past runner, she is incredibly knowledgeable about my injuries and how to treat them. In addition to that, I have seen a transformation in my body even after 2 months of training with her. My arms, back, shoulders, and abs are noticeably stronger and more toned. Every session, she pushes me towards progress while also making sure I am comfortable and avoiding injury. On top of all of this, she’s incredibly responsive and communicative. And she has an amazing, fun personality that makes it fun to get up early and train!

I’ve been working with Dima for a few weeks now and have found the personal training to be very helpful. Dima made an effort to tailor a program to my needs. He is very flexible and accommodating to my schedule, work out requests, and my desire to work out outside. As a result I’ve been able to make progress with my fitness goals, feel good, stay healthy and have fun.

I recommend Katie to whomever needs a personal trainer. She's great and had me do workouts I didn't even know existed. After my first session with her I was sore in places I didn't know could be sore. Katie also has a great personality and actually cares about her clients and about losing the right amount of weight in a healthy way and time period.

After working with Rachel for only a month and a half, I have started to see real results! I have lost about a pound every week and my strength has improved. Rachel has a gift for keeping me motivated and hard at work during our sessions. She brings something new to every session and she’s taken all the misery out of exercising. If you are looking to jump start an exercise regimen, I highly recommend Rachel as your personal trainer.
