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.

Ethan has been my personal trainer for a few weeks now and has been great. He's listens to what parts of your body you want to work on, and always has exercises that will strengthen those areas. He's always on time, patient, pushes you when you need to be pushed, positive and cares about your personal fitness success. Great trainer!! I would recommend him to all of my friends!

If you are looking to get started on a workout routine, focus on your current one or move to the next level you should consider training with Jason Wright. I began my training with Jason two months ago and am already seeing the results I want. He is always there to push you hard enough to get you where you want to be. Most importantly, Jason will make your workouts fun by varying up your routine, so your workouts never get dull and boring. I would recommend Jason to anyone looking to get results on their personal training goals. He is an amazing personal trainer who is passionate, patient, focused, attentive & will give you the results you want/need!

I did my first personal training session today with Jennifer and will start training 3 times a week with her at her gym. Her gym is only for private sessions with her clients. Everything you’ll need is there. I can tell that she really knows what she’s doing and I look forward to my journey of losing weight and becoming more fit and healthy in the coming months with our training sessions.

I went and met with Patty Englund and she introduced me to Megan Van Dyke, who is a personal trainer but does have a lot of courses in PT under her belt and that is to my advantage that is what I needed.

I cannot be more happy with Devon. If you’re looking for a personal trainer with knowledge and passion about fitness but also someone who cares about you that’s for sure Devon. He is not just a personal trainer, he makes you feel like you’re talking with an old friend, he always helps you and pushes you to go up your limits (in a good way), He always replies the messages when you’re in doubt about something, He doesn’t have you running on a treadmill , instead , he teaches you exercises that will help you to achieve your goals in due time without dying plus a nutritional plan according to your personal goals. Devon is just amazing.

I'm 2 weeks into working with Victoria and they have been the best 2 weeks. I am looking forward to what else is to come. I was very nervous at first having a personal trainer but again it's been the best thing.

Even though I never got the opportunity to work out with Tiffany, she was very understanding and responsive to my replies and I would definitely suggest her to be your next personal trainer if you have enough disposable income. Definitely recommend her! 👍

My husband and I love our personal trainer! She is knowledgeable and within the first couple of weeks, we started seeing a difference in how we were feeling and looking. She is also punctual and the exercises she makes us do are sometimes intense but practical. Svetness is a great company that I highly recommend. They are very helpful and they employ trainers that care about your progress. I highly recommend them.

Hello! My name is Landon and I began training with Steve approximately 6 months ago. Following suit with most of my peers the pandemic left me in a complacent and out-of-shape state; however, with my goals and aspirations, I knew that this was something that I needed to change immediately. I never had a personal trainer before this and from day one Steve provides an understanding, knowledgeable, and hardworking atmosphere. During training, I have improved both physically and mentally. You will be challenged day in and day out. If you decided to train with Steve be prepared to make some changes that are necessary for your success. Come in with an open mind and understand that you are there for a purpose and never forget that purpose. Steve will be there to assist you. Definitely read his entire description and even go to his website! While this training might not be for the faint of heart who aren't solidified in their "why," if you decide to go with him you'll never regret it. An all-around great trainer and person!

I originally spoke to Patty, but when I showed up for my first assessment workout, I was told I'd be working with Chris. I didn't really want to work with a man, but I went along with it. He's been AMAZING! I have several injuries and he is perfectly on board with understanding my needs and helping me meet my goals. He is super motivating and really knows his stuff. WellFit is a small, personal, intimate space. Even when there are several people there, it still feels very comfortable. Everyone there is working with a trainer at all times, so it's not like a public gym, where you're feeling judged and trying to figure out which exercise to do next. I really wish they would get at least one more treadmill, though there really isn't room for it. It doesn't inhibit my workouts though, so that's just a personal observation. I also wish it was a little less expensive, but for the individual guidance I'm getting from my trainer, the personal attention, dedication, and time, it's not unreasonable. I'm just cheap.

I worked with Tyler for a number of months and I can say it was a great experience! When we first started he asked what my goals were and we set a plan to go forward. He helped me feel much more comfortable in the gym while also learning how to workout specifics of muscle groups. He works well with the schedule and will help out even when I wasn’t working with him that day. The plane we made and the encouragement he gave me helped me on my personal fitness journey. I highly recommend Tyler for anyone looking for a personal trainer!

Victoria is an excellent personal trainer, she is serious and exciting about getting you in shape. I work out 3 or 4 times a week and I thought I was doing it right, but I wasn't and in my first 5 minutes of my first session, I was sweating, dripping with sweat and I realized that when you exercise correctly you will get results. I am sore!!!!!

I trained with Steve for about half a year, and I would recommend him and his business to anyone looking for a permanent solution to body image, weight, and self development issues. Throughout my journey with training, I lost about 10 lbs and made phenomenal leaps in my performance. I am active duty military and Steve prepared me to absolutely demolish my physical training demands. The body recomposition and performance gains that I have seen are unreal, and I think everyone deserves to feel as confident as I do about myself after training with Steve. I began training with a lowly sense of confidence, a horrible self image, a poor understanding of health and how MY body operates. By the end of training, I had learned how my body reacts to certain types of stressors, activities, and nutrition. I had learned to appreciate the things my body is good at, and the things my body is capable of. I learned to love the way I am and see all progress as a great thing, no matter how small. My personal life has improved dramatically since training with Steve, as many of the things he teaches you in the gym, apply to your day-to-day life. I would recommend Steve at Cerebrawn training to those who have the need to better themselves physically and mentally. Training with him is not for the weak of heart, and he will push you to be the absolute best you can. You will build resiliency, physical strength, mental fortitude, communication skills, and so much else. I applaud those who have the drive to take on training like this to improve their lifestyles.

Jillian Pace is the real deal! She is so caring and committed to helping me change the look and feel of my unloved body. She is the personal trainer you love to hate because she is always kind, but makes you push yourself further than you want to go. Jillian is very reasonably priced, she not only drives to my house, she provides many surprising extras such as: nutrition and weight advice, meal plans, food journals, body and fat measurement, etc. Jillian walks her talk, and is helping me create a personal commitment to looking my best. She is a dream come true!

Patty wasted no time in reaching out directly, it was as if she knew I was feeling defeated! She took the time to address all my questions and concerns over the phone on a Thursday evening. I met with her the following day for a personal 1x1 training session and I was sold! Her staff is friendly, professional and knowledgable and her studio is spotless! I'm looking forward to taking this journey with Patty by my side.
