Hi! I work a regular 9 to 5 office job and do personal training and financial literacy training on the side. I have a B.S. in Management/Finance and am working in getting NASM certified as a Personal Trainer (although I do have 7 years of experience). I separated from active duty military this year so I’m looking for some extra cash. I really like helping people, outside of an office, so I thought I might find the opportunity here. I can shovel snow and provide pet safe ice melter for driveways and sidewalks, adjust the max temperature on most shower faucets for child safety, landscape, leaf clean, paint, install washers and dryers and ensure the plug fits your outlet or change the cord on your washer/dryer so it fits the outlet, replace broken parts on appliances, restore wood siding/floors/furniture, move furniture, dispose of yard waste, and assemble exercise equipment and instruct on proper usage. My technology expertise can help provide computer assistance, English/Spanish translation services, put together projects on various programs, assist with data entry, connect computer and smart devices around your home, advise you on how you can improve your home connection for things like gaming and security systems then help make any upgrades necessary, assist in running Ethernet cables between floors without being unsightly if your gaming room is on a different floor, install and set up smart devices like Google Nest cameras/doorbells/speakers, among various other services. These are just things I could name off the top of my head, feel free to inquire about anything and I’ll let you know if it’s within my skillset.

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.

Dejan is an amazing personal trainer. He's created a great meal plan, fun workouts, and an comfortable environment overall. I can't wait to keep training with him and the rest of the team.

Jackson has been a great trainer. He provides a lot of information and developed a great personal workout program for me. He keeps in touch and is great about setting up workout times. Very good guy to train with.

Dani is an excellent trainer. I came having no previous personal training experience and she explained the basics of breathing, form, posture during the middle of training so it never felt like we had a wasted session. She also brings up new exercises consistently that work overlapping groups of muscles. Difficult but fair, I got a ton out of having Dani as my trainer.

Michael is hands down the best trainer in Nashville! He trained me my last semester of medical school from a period of late January to May. This was my first personal training experience and was not sure what to expect but Michael made the transition from never working out to being a regular gym goer effortless. We sat down, I told him what I wanted, and he made it happen. Over the course of late January I went from 190-165 and tacked on muscle as well. Easy to talk to, understanding of scheduling changes, and if you stick to his process it absolutely works and you will see the results you desire! I wish him much success! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED TRAINER!!!

I feel so lucky to have found Michael and YFS through thumbtack! I never thought I’d be looking for a personal trainer, but after struggling to find a class or routine that didn’t risk irritating my herniated discs in my back, I decided it was time to invest in a personalized plan. Michaels knowledge and background is impressive and he really cares about all his clients and the quality of services he and all the trainers are providing. I am not a gym person by nature but I really enjoyed working with Michael and learned so much.

Dani D. is the most inspirational woman. She is my biggest motivator and she pushes you to be the best version of yourself. She’s very personable, passionate and willing to help you achieve your goals. I have been working with her for a month and it was the best decision I ever made. I highly recommend Dani for all of your personal training needs.

Julien is absolutely AMAZING. Anyone that is slightly interested in boxing should make time for him ASAP before his time is all taken (yes, he's that good.) Unfortunately, I had some personal circumstances arise and am back in Chicago for the unforseeable future. I'm not going to get this quality of training for this price anywhere else. Enjoy your time with him, you won't regret it!

Law Larson has been helping me with my personal training since March of this year. We have had success with my weight loss and fitness goals and continue to make progress. Personally, I need a motivator to push me and to also to make me show up. Law knows I can do more than I think I can. And when we are done with my workout, I always leave feeling so accomplished.

If you are looking to make a change in your fitness routine, Law is your guy! I started training with him over a year ago and within the almost six months of working with him he has broken down and revised my own workout routine to fit my personal goals as well as breaking down my eating habits. He cares tremendously about his clients and takes the time to build a rapport with you. After working with him for six months before moving out of state, I have since lost 14 pounds and almost 2 dress sizes. He has motivated me to continue my journey! I'm now moving back and can't wait to start my sessions back up!!!!

I love Janet!! I have been working with her for 2 months now and can already tell a difference! I have never been a person that has never struggled with weight but since I’ve been in my 30s I can just look at food and gain weight. After trying every diet and failing it, I knew that I had to take more drastic step. I have been to every workout class known to man and I have always left exhausted and intimidated to go back. I was nervous to try a personal trainer, however, then I met Janet. She honestly cares about you as an individual and tailors every workout to you. I’ve never not wanted to go to work out with her. She will make you sweat but not to the point you burn yourself out. Thanks to her I’m finally getting my confidence back and actually enjoy looking in the mirror again.
