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.

He was my first personal trainer and he made a very great impression on the first day. (:

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. Right from the beginning I was impressed. Within 5 minutes of posting a request for a personal trainer I was contacted by Hugo Chico. I was contacted by other trainers as well, Hugo Chico knew exactly what I was looking for in a training program and in a personal trainer. We met that week and talked about my what my goals were and how we would get there. By the following week we were on a training regiment that would help me hit my goals. He is a very thorough trainer and very knowledgeable on both training and dietary needs. I would HIGHLY recommend Hugo Chico if you are serious about getting healthy and getting in shape.*

When I first began my quest for a personal trainer, DC Training Systems surfaced and I instantly knew who this was. I had heard a great deal about Dan and his unorthodox training methodology before even meeting him through several co-workers and friends. Upon meeting and training with Dan I can undoubtly say that the rumors about him are true --- Dan is the real deal folks. If you're looking for a typical personal trainer, then Dan isn't for you. But if you want an exercise professional that bears extensive knowledge and a skill-set that is second to none, then look no further than DC Training Systems. I guarantee you won't be disappointed.

I've been training with Dan so far for 4 months and he really helped to change my physique. I improved my posture within the first few weeks and he focused on the weakest parts of my body that needed improvement 🍑 Dan is both an excellent trainer and an exceptional person. He really puts a signature effort on every client individually and pushes you to achieve your goals. 💪🏻 If you need a personal trainer you have come to the right place!

Dan is an excellent personal trainer. He took his time to develop a program just for me. It's been awesome ! I thought I couldn'the workout, I have two bad knees, had my ACL replaced in one and the other is strained from over work. It's been an excellent experience my knees don't hurt and I'm getting stronger. I'm a massage therapist and it's helping me out tremendously with my job. I'll be keeping DC training System in my life because it is life changing. Thank You Dan L

Having been a frequenter of the personal training circuit, I thought I knew what I was looking for: a knowledgable professional who not only loved what he did, but exemplified his word through his practice. Pretty standard when consulting a professional right? Upon meeting Dan Chavez and discussing my fitness goals, I received that and much more. Not only did he conduct a comprehensive analysis of my needs and current fitness status, but he did so with a kindness and silent authority that makes one believe that tiptop health and the ultimate physique is achievable. Through several months of training, it became apparent that having your trainer be accountable to his actions is nowhere near as valuable as having him help you become accountable to yours. That is the difference with DC Training Systems--the expertise and skill are bone deep. It is a difficult feat to try and find someone as varied in thier workouts or helpful with your meal plan or one who pushes you beyond your own preconceived notions of limitation. Dan is the most well-rounded, thorough and gifted professional I have encountered. My only regret is not having gone to him sooner.

Kevin is great.  He has a passion for personal training and health. Cares deeply about his clients, and is dedicated to improving their fitness routines. He knows the right balance between encouragement and tough love.  He knows exactly how hard to push, without pushing too far during a training session. Even thru any injuries he makes sure to constantly ask if your ok so that's a plus to know that he worries about your body. kevin is  also flexible in scheduling workouts.  He will accommodate to your schedule and will find the time to train you.  Constantly varies the exercises for each session  I never know what to expect, except that I'm going to work hard and feel lasting results.    I was out of shape. I couldn't run a mile or walk up a flight of stairs without getting winded.  I avoided the gym like the black plague.  It was the last thing I wanted to do with my free time.  Now I actually enjoy working out!  I am a little stronger, little fitter, and have more energy. I can honestly say that ever since we began I feel better inside and confident. I still have a long way to go and thats fine because at the end of the day he makes sure that we are makinh progress to the goal that i gave him...It's all thanks to Kevin and his kick ass workouts.
