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've worked with personal trainers before, but none more focused on ensuring their clients use the proper form and are armed with knowledge. She understands thst doing reps the right way truly makes a world of difference while training. Angela has been committed and is great to work with over the past few weeks and I look forward to continuing the journey!

I first started with Sonny about a couple of weeks ago and quite honestly, I was unsure if I wanted to follow through with working with a personal trainer again. While my last attempt at personal training was adequate, I wasn't seeing the value nor was I enjoying the time I was spending at each session. I can say with confidence that Sonny is a five-star personal trainer. My first meeting with him was a 30 minute consultation. We spent the entire 30 minutes going over my goals and my physical limitations. Sonny listened intently and heard my needs to begin tailoring his style of training to match. I left that meeting confident that I would get something out of training with him. The following actual training sessions were nothing but superb. Sonny utilized the first two sessions to get bearings on what I can handle and how much to push me past my limits. Suffice to say, I love my comfort zone. When I usually train by myself, I stay inside my comfort zone but may sometimes go outside of it. When training with Sonny, he's always pushing me to go the extra rep or extra few seconds on a set and he does it in a way that builds your confidence in yourself. You realize that you're able to do more than you can. What's more important is that Sonny doesn't push you to the point that you will hate it and turn you away from a healthier lifestyle. Lastly, Sonny is very communicative and observant in watching your form and making sure you stay safe. I also love that he sends reminders the morning of my sessions to confirm them. All in all, I would recommend training with Sonny. It is worthwhile and you'll get so much out of your time with him whether it be 30 minutes or hour long sessions.

I am so glad I stumbled across Jay during my online search for a personal trainer a month ago! I had my first session and have been training since. I plan on going for many more months to come and can't believe how easy it was to setup and book my next sessions! Jay is such a knowledgeable trainer and it shows. She went out of her way and took the time to ask about my history and then had me do various exercises to diagnose my current physical readiness. Then honed in on the strengthening exercises that fit me best! She always challenges and adapts her programs to my continuing fitness progression. I aim to continue to train and maintain a good level of fitness with her help for a long time to come. I highly recommend Jay. The professionalism and passion for what she does is second to none. It’s not always easy to have enthusiasm every time for working out, but Jay’s persistence and passion for fitness she keeps me on the right path!

I’ve been working with Sonny now for about a month and I can’t say enough about how great my experience has been with him. He is both patient and motivating at the same time. He quickly identifies your strengths and weaknesses and knows what buttons to push to help you reach your goals. His training knowledge, and the subtle nuances that he provides, are invaluable. If I had to choose one thing that I appreciate the most, it would be his diligence in implementing a program that is designed around MY goals. I can tell that he really listened at the outset, and continues to listen, to what I want and what I expect. For whatever reason you find yourself on the “personal trainer” fence, take it from me, Sonny will be exactly what you have been looking for. -Knowledgeable, Patient, and Motivating.

I am a very skeptical person, I research quite a bit before making any decision. Choosing the right personal trainer can be tough, you got to find someone who genuinely cares, trustworthy, dependable and knowledgeable. Gigi was the perfect choice! I am sooo glad I went with her. If you landed on her profile, look no further, it really cant get better than this! Just after the initial 8 sessions with her, I had already lost 2-3 inches and have been motivated to continue since then. Not just inches, I feel great too. She is very knowledgeable, knows how to target your problem areas, customizes each session to fit your needs. Challenges you and lets you go at your pace at the same time. She has a great personality and is both motivating and very friendly.
