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 can now say it's definitely worth it to pay for a personal trainer. I am 46 years old and needed help bad. With Caleb’s help, I’ve been so much more motivated towards my workouts. If you think a trainer can help you with working out then Caleb will definitely be a positive addition to your routine. I train with him three times a week and that is perfect for me. If you buy a package of ten sessions that is the best deal. Caleb has much better value than many of the other trainers that I talked to. I feel that he puts more emphasis towards my personal well being instead of worrying how much money he is making. I highly recommend Westside Family Fitness! Thank you Caleb! - Linda Marcus

I started searching for a personal trainer when the gym I currently go to totally dropped the ball in getting me set up with one of their trainers. So, I figured hey, if they don't want my money I'll go find somewhere else to spend it! Anyhow...I started searching for places and stumbled across Caleb at Westside Family Fitness and I am sure glad I did. First of all what a great just have focus on personal training. You don't have to worry about regular gym go-ers getting in your way during your training! I love it. The gym Superior Physique is where we train and it is well equipped, clean and friendly. The gym and Caleb's website are linked to each other and they have helpful information and even better I can schedule and pay online, so I can see the schedule and pick a time that works for me, this is a nice option! I put my interest in through there website and was contacted the same day. I just want to say my experience was a great and look forward to many more!

Turk is an amazing trainer! This is my first time with a personal trainer so I was pretty nervous going in for my first appointment. He is so friendly and down to earth that I was more than comfortable within a few minutes of meeting him. I've been training with him for three months now. He pushes me much harder than I would have ever pushed myself and knows exactly when I have had enough. I have had amazing results so far and have his continued support even after our session is over. I think he is amazing as a trainer but also as friend that knows exactly what to say. A big thank you for all he's done for me.

Honestly, after training with Matt I realized how you should train your body instead of just lugging weights at the gym and using all kinds of fancy machines. I used to train with a physical trainer before and boy was I in pain after every session and not feeling that I was getting strong at all. Lifts were always causing me problems on the lower back and he would hardly give pointers to correct the same. I came across Matt's profile on Thumbtack while I was looking to switch coaches and finally I found the right coach who gives complete attention to the client for the session correcting mistakes till you get how to do the movement properly. It is a slow process and Matt has incredible patience, because you need to build strength to pull of a complex lift correctly. The results are now starting to show after training with him for 3 months - I can do proper deadlifts, kettlebell swings, complex movements and add to that my short term goal of doing proper pullups. His training methods improved my posture and my constant back pain is gone and I can see the difference in my strength. If you are looking for a coach who gives you proper attention and makes you work towards your personal strength goal, Matt is the coach you are looking for. He keeps the session fun and throws a new challenge every time to keep things interesting!

Jesse is a brilliant personal trainer! I found him on thumbtack, and signed up for the free consultation. Jesse took notes, asked plentiful questions about my health, workout history and my goals. Based on the workout we did in the consultation session, he was able to craft up a targeted plan to help me achieve my goals. I can already see a lot of increase in my strength as well as a general tone up in my body. I felt some weakness/pain from certain exercises and he was able to find modifications that would let me still proceed without pain or trouble while not compromising on working out the target muscle group. In addition he has suggested multiple warm ups and workouts I can do on my off days to help build my weak spots. My energy levels have consistently been building up on my fitness journey with Jesse which has helped me achieve more in my day to day life as well. Additionally he was able to provide some basic nutrition references on how my ideal diet should look which was an added plus. He is very punctual and flexible with timings which really helps as I have odd and long work hours. He also is very motivating during sessions which helps you get past the 40 min mark of the workout when fatigue begins to set in. I’m very happy with the results I see and recommend Jesse as the top choice for personal trainer in this area.

Twelve weeks prior to walking into Superior Physique, I had changed my eating habits, started a reputable workout program at home, 5-6 days a week, with absolutely no progress to show for it. I take that back, my pants had actually began to fit me tighter than before I had started the program. Confused, frustrated and determined, I needed a change. I found Turk through Like you, I read the reviews and took a chance. What will a consultation hurt, right? It’s just a chat. Turk was professional, knowledgeable and very articulate. He took time to get to know my history, my goals and areas of opportunity. He takes something that can be scientifically complex (down right confusing), and breaks it down in easy to understand ways. I quickly learned why I wasn’t seeing results and what I needed to do in order to change. My nutrition was out of balance, I was under eating and I needed to add in strength training. The first week, I thought, “Oh my goodness, I have no idea what I am doing- this is a whole new world for me. I am not in Kansas anymore.” I went to two sessions that week, a nervous wreck, a little nauseated, and had no idea what to expect. I cannot remember if I walked in with a terrified look or not but Turk quickly made me feel at ease. First, we went over nutrition in detail and then onto the floor. Turk explained and demonstrated the exercises, showing what muscle groups were being triggered and what the proper form of each exercise looked and felt like (He is fantastic at educating you). The hour flew by and I didn’t die! I found myself wanting more. Seventeen weeks into my journey, Turk has far exceeded my expectations. I can honestly say working out with Turk has become my favorite part of the week. I look back in amazement of how much I have progressed over the weeks. I am thrilled with my results and love watching how my body transforms from week to week. I have gone from 27% body fat down to 21%, and gained 4lbs of muscle. With Turk as my partner in crime, there is no doubt that we will achieve my goals. Not only is Turk extremely knowledgeable and efficient, he is a positive and motivating guy that pushes you to your limits. The limits you had no idea were even there. He has opened my eyes to a world I have never considered before and I love every minute of my new journey. If you are anything like me cardio is easy and comfortable. Easy and comfortable doesn’t always get you the results that you want or need. If it terrifies you, it transforms you. To me this was strength training and personal trainers. I took the leap of faith and taking a chance with Turk has been the absolute, best thing I have done for myself and for my health. Thanks to Turk, I am no longer terrified, I am transforming! I cannot say enough positive things about Turk Fickling – A truly phenomenal guy that knows fitness! I have the upmost respect for Turk and highly recommend him to anyone who wants to make a positive change in his or her life!
