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 was on the lookout for a motivated personal trainer who would help me meet my weight loss goals. I had faced some bad experiences before with personal training at corporate gyms where I invested a lot of money but gained nothing in return. I decided to go with Gina as I was impressed by her professionalism, experience, commitment to her customers and more importantly, the fact that she cares. She designs custom-workouts for her customers, depending on their age, body build, dietary habits and any limitations that they may have. She is flexible but has a firm hand at the same time. We have group nutrition accountability meetings where we get to interact with others who are on various fitness journeys. Finally, I have to mention the 'personal' touch that she gives to each of her clients. That is her best selling point. Thank you Gina!

Gigi has been my personal trainer for the last three months. She has been a great help in teaching me new routines and proper form even though I have worked out for over thirty years. The accountability she provides has also really increased my motivation!

Jade was a great personal trainer and had an equally awesome personality. Jade was instrumental in increasing my confidence in the gym and always gave good tips for good form. He did a good job of explaining why certain motions were key. You can't go wrong with working with Jade. He was always responsive and very flexible if the schedule needed to change.

When I first decided to make a change in my health, fitness, and weight, I came to Thumbtack to look for a personal trainer. I had no idea what to look for and didn't know if it mattered as long as they were on Thumbtack I assumed they were the best. After interviewing 24 different trainers I realized what I was looking for and NOT looking for. I wanted more than a fit guy with an ego who loved the gym and wanted to make a living doing what he loves. I wanted someone who truly cared about me, my health, my fitness, and my success. When I found Rodney I found all that and more. Rodney is a physical therapist, a nutritionalist, a fitness guru and has now become a great friend. I trust Rodney fully. Rodney put me on a nutrition program and held me accountable. He put me on a fitness program and held me accountable. I worked HARD and many days wasn't sure I could get through the day's routine but Rodney always knew. He could read my body and tell if I was at risk for injury (at which point he would altar the routine to ensure I didn't have an injury)_ or if I was just whining cause my brain was saying how tired I was (at which point he had a way of pushing me through the workout). He could explain anatomy, muscle, and tendon functions like I have never heard anyone do before. I not only gained great muscle but I understood so much more about my body. In my first 30 days I lost 35 pounds. After one year I lost 4 pant sizes and over 95 pounds. This was amazing and I could have NEVER accomplished it without the proper education, nutrition and fitness coaching I received from Rodney Lansdell. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND RODNEY FOR YOUR HEALTH FITNESS AND LONG TERM GOALS. He's not EASY but he is SUCCESSFUL. And if it were EASY there would be no need for trainers.....right?
