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.

This place is Awesome!!! When I started I had very little energy and my personal trainers Aaron and Ashley worked with me diligently and now I am lifting weights and stretching muscles that I didn’t know I had. I will be 60 in October but I feel like I’m 40.

I absolutely love Chrisfit and think Tulsa could use more locations. The value was great hands down and it works. I lost 6 lbs my first week and I did not diet. The trainer was professional and I feel I can finally reach my personal weight loss goal.

I've been to 3 other personal trainers and had horrible experiences; I mean horrible. So far, my interaction with Sky has been a great experience; he makes you feel comfortable, empowered, inspired, and he's not aggressive or pushy. I can tell he truly cares for his clients. I can't wait to see what incredible results he and I WILL accomplish.

I would not recommend ChrisFIT. I did not meet my weight loss goals and they did not always follow through on their word. For example, I was trying to schedule a makeup session because my trainer had to cancel one of our sessions. Chris called me to set up a time. He said he would check to see if the facility was available on Wednesday and he would call me right back to let me know. He never called me back. I think if you tell someone you are going to call them back, you should call them back, even if it is to let them know you don't have an answer yet. When I met with Chris initially, I had a picture of myself from 2 years ago. I told him that is what I wanted to look like again. I was 20 pounds thinner and an unknown number of inches, but I wanted to fit into those jeans. He said he could help me. I did see some results after 3 months, but did not meet my goals. I did not continue with ChrisFIT based on conversations and experiences that were less than satisfactory over the 3 month period. Communication, accountability, and trust are essential elements that must exist when working with a Personal Trainer. For a successful experience, in my opinion, goals and expectations must be communicated effectively at the very beginning. The client must trust the trainer to provide effective workouts that will help the client reach the goal. The trainer must trust the client to follow the meal plan and follow any workout routines prescribed between sessions. The client and trainer hold each other accountable for each other’s responsibilities (which should have been agreed upon and communicated at the beginning). I regret to report that I did not obtain this level of communication, accountability, and trust with ChrisFIT. My trainer weighed and measured me at my first session. After one month, he weighed and measured me again. At that time, he reviewed my goals with me, but the goals he thought I had were not the goals I had. He could not remember my goal weight and didn’t seem to remember seeing the picture I brought in. It made me wonder if I was really getting personalized training sessions. I believe I communicated my goals effectively at the beginning. If you are paying that much money for personal training sessions, they should be invested enough to write down your goals so they can remember them. I will say that I did see results. My arms and legs are smaller and toned and have nice definition and my core is smaller and leaner. I can fit in some of my smaller clothes from my closet, but not the “skinny jeans,” which was my goal. In my opinion, I did not get my money’s worth.

We made an appointment to visit with Chris. He greeted us at the door when we arrived. The appointment was for my wife, who is very quiet, reserved, and personal about her life. She's never exercised and has gained quite a bit of weight over the years (she's 65). Chris was very genuine and considerate, and understood very well how to work with her. Together he and she set a weight loss goal of 100 lbs and found a time that would work well for her to come in three times a week. Chris also worked with her to evaluate what she was eating and to help her develop a nutrition plan. He paired her with a trainer that he thought would work well with her personality. The trainer started her out slow and is slowly increasing the amount of work she's having to do at each session. She comes home tired but not incapacitated, and that encourages her to not give up. This is only her second week but "so far so good".

I inquired about hiring a personal trainer and had emailed several different places in Tulsa. Chrisfit was the only one to respond! I scheduled a meeting with Chris and he sat down and asked what my goals were, asked my expectations, and so forth. He listened and then gave me some options and told me that he could not only help me meet my goals but exceed them. I was impressed with the professionalism and felt that Chris actually listened to what I was saying. I left there feeling energized and excited about working out and getting in shape. It was also reassuring to me that I had someone I could lean on for help to meet my goals! Thanks Chris and Chrisfit!

I'm going to give him four stars since personal training is obviously not an instantaneous service, but something done over time. Chris is pretty physically impressive (his biceps have biceps) and exactly the type of phyisique that gives you confindence, that if you listen to him, he can probably assist in whipping you into shape. He understands that diet is 80% of the battle, but isn't going to put you on a bodybuilder diet (rice, meat, veggies) from the jump. Which is great, because slowly phasing out bad habits while adding new healthy ones seems a much gentler, more logical, and maintainable course. I've had one workout so far, leg day, kicked my butt! I feel like I'll be adding some real muscle soon. Chris is also realistic about body type/ shape. I'm tall for a girl and he said, what I have always thought, I shouldn't go past a certain weight, because it just won't look healthy on my frame. Hopefully, I'll remember to come back and add some comments about my results with ChrisFit (pics if they allow it ). Thanks Chris! I'm looking forward to starting later this month.
