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.

Ricky is excellent. He is knowledgeable and very professional in his training. Ricky has the experience to draw upon so he can design a workout program that fits my exact needs. I have been working out with Ricky for 8 months now and am completely satisfied. I have worked out with numerous other personal trainers but I have never been as well trained as I am with Ricky. I HIGHLY recommend Ricky.

Jose is a superior personal trainer! After we visited about my goals, Jose let me know that his philosophy is that all our workouts should and will be totally goal oriented. I will say that with previous trainers I worked out in a different way, but my results with Jose in a relatively short time demonstrate that his workout plan is the key to maximizing my fitness results. Jose’s workouts are super well planned, goal oriented, and truly have maximized my results. I give Jose my highest recommendation! Chip S

Ive tried personal trainers a handful of times and most want to spend the first several classes talking about goals and package commitments. Day 1 with Alex was straight to business. The style is pure body weight and core exercises so theres no cheating or sugarcoating with weight training. Alex attention to detail stuck out immediately altering exercises and stretches to facilitate my strengths and weaknesses. His first two classes were free to ensure his style and program was what I was looking for. Im just in the beginning stages of getting where I want to be physically but I’m certain with Alex that I will be there sooner than later.

During my quest to find the best trainer out there for my needs, I found Alex Hernandez. I knew from my research that the qualities I was looking for in a trainer included experience, education, personality, the ability to communicate well and professionalism. I met with/spoke to several trainers through Thumbtack and outside of Thumbtack that unfortunately were lacking one or more of these qualities until I met with Alex who, as it turned out, had all the qualities I was looking for in a trainer. It also didn’t hurt that he offered a couple of free sessions. (I know this is a rather wordy review but if you are like me and prefer to do your due diligence before hiring a trainer, I think it’s worth the read.) Experience: Yes, having years of experience is great, which Alex has but what I most valued about Alex’s experience is that he had been through the same struggle of losing weight and figuring out how to establish and maintain a healthier lifestyle as I am going through now. Because of this, I felt Alex had a unique perspective as a trainer and would be able to better understand my struggle with losing weight and be better equipped to assist me through that struggle. Experience was also very important to me as I was coming to the table with several injuries that any trainer I selected would have to have the know-how on how to handle those injuries during training while still allowing me to make regular progress. After a couple of complimentary sessions with Alex, there was no doubt he had the necessary experience to help me. Education: In addition to having over a decade of experience in personal training, Alex also had the appropriate credentials. One of these credentials was particularly important to me, his NASM certification as a Weight Loss Specialist. (FYI - You can check a trainer’s credentials on the NASM website.) Beyond his certification education, Alex also educated himself on me. Alex took the time to ask me questions and learn about me, what I wanted to accomplish with training, what injuries or medical issues I had, what concerns I had, what my day-to-day life was like and what my nutrition looked like. For me, this meant Alex was asking all the right questions to educate himself on how best to help me. Personality: If you’re looking for a trainer who will yell at you like a drill sergeant, then Alex isn’t the trainer for you. If you’re looking for a trainer to handle you with kid gloves and baby you, then again, Alex isn’t the trainer for you. If you are looking for a happy medium between the two with a few jokes and quotes of encouragement thrown in, then Alex is for you. Alex is encouraging yet pushes you beyond your limits just enough every time so every session always contains progress. When I first started working with Alex, there was a particular exercise that he had to modify in order for me to complete. Recently, I was able to complete this exercise, multiple reps, without modification and he was more excited about it then I was. Who wouldn’t want a trainer like that, someone who is excited for you and your progress. Communication: Alex has been great about communicating with me since day one. I tend to have a lot of questions and Alex has always been very good about answering those questions for me whether during our training sessions or via text (in a timely manner). Unlike some trainers, he does not brush off your questions. Alex will regularly check on me after a session to make sure none of my injuries were exacerbated due to the session. It was important to find someone I could communicate well with because I knew my injuries would be a constant issue and I needed to be comfortable enough talking with my trainer and expressing when I felt the pain from a pre-existing injury was too much and/or when I felt I was just incapable of doing an exercise due to my injuries without feeling I was being judged by my trainer. I have found Alex to be very easy to communicate with. Professionalism: The last quality on my list was professionalism. I have had trainers who were physically inappropriate with me, I have had trainers who would talk badly about their other clients either in front of me to another person or directly to me, I’ve had trainers that would spend majority of my session texting/playing on their phone and paying no attention to me at all. I have never had any of these issues with Alex. During our training sessions, he has always conducted himself in a professional manner making sure the focus is always on me and my training. I honestly believe Alex is worth every penny as a trainer. I’m very happy I found him, that I have had the opportunity to work with him and that I now know what it is like to work with a real trainer. **As of this review, I have worked with Alex for 8 weeks. **I have lost inches and pounds and have gained muscle and strength. **Several aches and pains I had prior to my training with Alex has dissipated. (I used to get terrible ankle and shin pain walking to and from work every day which has subsided substantially since training with Alex.)
