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.

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.

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.

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.

In searching for a trainer I found none better that Jason. He has perfected the craft of personal training. Jason lists some of his certifications on his website, there not just fluff as it turns out, Jason really knows his stuff. Bottom line is that he produces results, noticeable results. Some words that come to mind: Knowledgeable, responsive, accommodating, results, honest, motivating. After the initial meeting to set things up, everything he said he has delivered. I can't speak more highly of him, or give a stronger recommendation to anyone looking for a real personal trainer.

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 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.

Dustin agreed to support me as a remote location personal trainer. This removes all the standard long day worker excuses for me. He's provided a nutrition plan, travel work out and an extensive starting assessment. He's professional, patient and knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to the progress.

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.

He really listened to my goals and was able to help me with every question, taking time out of his day to write lengthy paragraphs to make sure I understood. He made the workouts challenging and precise, and even helped me with the diet portion of trying to get into shape. I would highly recommend Germain to anyone looking for a Personal trainer in san antonio!

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!!!!!

Lauren is also a registered nurse, so she knows the body, nutrition and safe ways to get the results that you are looking for. I am in the Army and i’m trying to get prepared for the new PT test. She is a former soldier, so she understands the expectations. I am very fortunate to have her as a personal trainer and I am confident that I will get the results that I am looking for!

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!

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.
