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 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 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.

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.

David has surpassed all my expectations with having a personal trainer. He’s incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about the job. He’s flexible with scheduling, and very friendly. He’s mindful of all the things about my body and limits, and it truly feels like custom personal training. Cherry on top is his positive affirmations. I had a former trainer that was a hard***, but David is encouraging, and I truly feel like I’m improving my lifestyle.

I contracted Candon after months of thinking about exercising again. He was the only one on thumbtack that reached out to me after being persistent about contacting me and getting me to meet with him for personal training. We just finished our first training session and made me even more excited towards training!

Candon is an amazing personal trainer and working out with him is the first time I've stuck to a workout routine since playing sports in school. He emphasizes personal growth and is good about pushing me to improve without going overboard. And honestly, Candon is just a really cool guy who is easy to talk with and is very flexible with my schedule. The facility is small but very nice and clean. It’s just me and Candon in the gym during sessions, which is great during Covid and because I hate having an audience when I workout. I’d definitely recommend Candon as a personal trainer to anyone, whether you’re wanting to start getting into shape or you’re a regular gym rat.

I began personal training with Candon in July 2022. I had gained weight and gotten out of shape during the Pandemic, and the things I was doing on my own weren’t giving me the results I wanted. I’m also getting married in May 2023 and wanted to lose weight and tone up for my wedding. Candon has been excellent to work with and he is just what I was looking for. He’s very flexible on times of the week we can meet and we usually change days and times based on my schedule. He pushes me to get better without being intimidating and always listens and modifies if there’s a day I’m feeling sore. His gym facilities are very nice and clean and I like that we can train in an environment that’s not crowded with other people. I’ve seen great results since starting our training plan – losing inches in all my “problem areas” and I can tell I’m much stronger too. I highly recommend Candon for personal training – you will not regret reaching out to him!

I have been working out with Gigi for 6 months. I was in quite the slump re: hitting the gym & started personal training to get back into a healthy habit of exercise & diet. Gigi is very knowledgeable and is an excellent coach. Her approach is straightforward, no nonsense & at the same time kind and motivating. I highly recommend Gigi for training. Gigi exhibits the utmost professionalism, keeps to her schedule & also helps with your diet planning to align with your goals & results. It is clear that she loves what she does and is dedicated to helping others stay motivated.

Starting to work out again at the age of 52, I was looking for someone who understood changes the body made over time. Danny is very knowledgeable regarding the human body and has the experience needed to give me specific and necessary instructions. He responded to my needs immediately and with genuine concern. Danny is both personable and professional. I would recommend Danny to anyone looking for a personal trainer

I found Gigi on Thumbtack about 2 months ago and I couldn’t say enough amazing things about her. I was looking for a personal trainer that would personalize a program to my body and needs and she has gone above and beyond. I never thought I’d say this about working out, but I actually look forward to working out with her. I see the results from her pushing me to what she knows I’m capable of. I am so thankful I found her. She’s very knowledgeable and I’d refer her to anyone who’s looking for a complete package of a trainer. Thank you Gigi!!!!

Candon is by far one of the best trainers I’ve ever had! He really listens to you during the consultation and makes sure to meet your workout needs and goals with his custom workout plan. The workouts are always different every single time which is fun. I always walk in not knowing what to expect. He also has his own private studio that’s fully equipped, and as someone who hates working out in public..this was a plus for me. I discussed a payment plan with Candon, and he agreed to work with me. He’s affordable in general but i do appreciate the extra mile he went to make sure I was able to afford it comfortably week by week. you’re missing out if you haven’t hired him as your personal trainer yet!

Sonny is extremely knowledgeable about personal training and optimizing a workout to the individual’s needs. I have back, knee, and shoulder problems, and I am astounded by how he pays attention to my form to make sure I do not suffer any new injury or aggregate my old injuries. He is flexible with my sessions’ times and willing to change my times to help me out with my busy schedule. My workouts are intense and he wastes no time in order to make sure I get the maximum “bang for my buck.” He always has a smile on his face and a great attitude. I have found my trainer for life! I highly recommend Sonny to anyone who’s serious about getting in shape, losing weight, or building muscles.

Evan is such an amazing trainer and motivator. He is always energenic and passionate about his clients. He makes each work out efficient and difficult, but understands how hard he can push you. Evan brings so much knowledge about overall fitness to each session. I have been working out with Evan with personal sessions for three months now and I've seen fantastic results - both weight loss and body shaping. He is willing to mentor you through your journey no matter how difficult.

I only started working out with Nikki about a week ago but I'm already feeling healthier and noticing changes in my body because of her professional advice and guidance! Nikki will push you to do your very best each session you have and is extremely patient when you feel like you can't do it. It takes a lot to be patient with people who are trying to make a lifestyle change and I 100% recommend her. I am so happy and grateful to have found a personal trainer like her!

Joseph is a great personal trainer. He genuinely cares about my progress and he is a great motivator. He put together a personalized nutrition program for me and holds me accountable. He is extremely professional and always on time. I've been with a gym for years but Joseph has shown me a lot of new exercise and ways to work out. He's been able to keep our sessions interesting and challenging every time. He's also great at targeting areas that I want to work on. I highly recommend him!
