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.

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.

Reviews for San Antonio in-home personal trainers

I moved to San Antonio June 2017, and have been trying to accomplish my fitness goals on my own. Needless to say it was not working. I stumbled upon this website and started to search personal trainers. There was many different types. I first met with Jesse because he was reasonably priced. I have come to find out that he goes above and beyond the normally personal training relationship. We had the first meeting and I explained my fitness goals that I would like to achieve. I also explained that with my job (working in the oil field) I had very little time and my schedule is very hectic. He has worked with me ever sense. He is very flexible, and easy to set up appointments and understands when things come up. He has helped me with my eating habits and will also text me when I am out on location (the oil rig) to hold me accountable. He has come up with work outs I can do at home or when I am traveling for work. He makes sure to motivate me and to push me towards my goals. I would recommend him to anyone. If you are looking for personal training or even on the fence about it, I would meet with Jesse and do a couple of sessions. Trust me when I say you will not be disappointed.

This review has been a long time in the making, but I wanted to give the fullest, most honest review I could. I joined Wellfit in February of 2015. Back then, I was a 220 lb. pile of skinny-fat mess that had never worked out before in his life. I was tired of the way I looked and felt and sought Wellfit to help me with my fitness goals. Initially, I trained a couple of times with Patty, who set me up with a meal plan with some good tips on what foods, shakes, and supplements I needed to be buying. I then transferred over to my current trainer, Chris. Chris and I are both avid metal heads. We would shoot the shit about some album we heard in between sets, while I recovered from getting my ass kicked by whatever work out he was having me do at the time. Having that connection made getting through those first few sessions a little bit easier. That's the thing about Wellfit: Chris, Patty, and the entire team there are all excellent motivators. These guys genuinely want you to succeed in your fitness goals. They don't condescend to you when you fail, but rather they keep trying to build you up and get you through your next session. I can't even begin to describe how important this was for me to make sure that I kept going and stayed committed to my goals. Eventually, I got to a point where I was looking forward to each of my sessions. Chris would push me a little bit harder each time, and within a couple of months I found myself doing exercises and lifts that I never thought I'd be capable of doing in my entire life. Chris also wrote up an extremely detailed and awesome home work out plan which has helped me immensely. Today, I weigh about 192 lbs. I went from a 40 inch waist to a 34 inch waist. I fit into clothes that actually look good on me. I have more strength, stamina, confidence, and self-esteem than I've ever had before. My personal and professional lives have changed for the better since joining Wellfit, and I'll never be able to thank Chris, Patty, and the whole team there enough for what they have done for me so far. Wellfit is absolutely worth the investment. The team there are professionals who genuinely care about you and will bend over backwards to help you achieve your fitness goals. I will be a member for the long haul, and I can't wait for my next session.
