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.

Reviews for Wylie personal trainers
Chelsea M.
BEWARE I will never understand how another human can take such advantage of someone, It is just not who I am., but this guy has zero shame. This guy is a fraud. His bio seemed great, he had good reviews (which I’m now convinced he had his friends write). We talked on the phone and he seemed genuine. So I agreed to 30 sessions and paid him half upfront. My expectation was that this was his personal gym that he owned and trained clients out of. All of his bio photos had solely the client in the picture. He used phrases such as “I keep the temperature at 72 degrees” and his bio states “offers personal training at “his” primary facility. He never once said it was at an apt complex gym. Before coming I asked if there was a parking lot as I am horrible at parallel parking to which he said to call him when I get there so he could direct me where to go. When I arrived, I slowly started to come to the realization that this was an apartment complex gym. I asked walking in if this was where he lived and he said yes that he has it worked out with the complex where he can train there and they can advertise as having an onsite trainer. I immediately knew this was not for me. I don’t like working out around other people which is why I opted to get a trainer and not get a gym membership and was part of the reason I thought he would be a good fit. After walking in the door, I apologized and expressed that I must have misunderstood because I thought it was a private gym. He said we needed to go upstairs to discuss further. He gestured for me to go ahead of him and I stated that I didn’t know where I was going and for him to lead the way. When we sat down he had an attitude, and asked what my issue was with working out around people. I said I just didn’t like it, that it was a preference, and It just made me uncomfortable. He proceeded to tell me that I have mental health issues as well as a social anxiety issue. He kept pushing for reasons why I am this way and asking what has happened in my life to make me this way etc. At this point I was extremely caught off guard and VERY uncomfortable which I let him know MULTIPLE times. I didn’t even know how to respond to him so the majority of the conversation he just went on a rant. I then said that I was confused, that I was there to work out, not for a therapy session and that I didn’t think any of these questions had anything to do with this. He stated I need to seek a psychologist to get to the bottom of it all and proceeded to pry as I just sat there speechless. He continued and said no one out there is going to be able to help me achieve what I want (which was the normal lose weight/get in shape and work through some nerve damage after getting my kidney removed)I told him I have several friends that work out and they have never been treated like this with their trainers and he says to me “yeah and what kind of shape are they in? I bet not good”. He then pushed his folder across the table from me and stated that “This is toxic and I want no part of it”… then continued and proceeded to tell me that I need to seek help. He asked when I felt like it had started to feel like a therapy session. I said "Not until we sat down and you told me I have mental health issues". He then goes “oh no, ill tell you when it started, it started when you first came in and I asked you to go upstairs first and you wouldn’t because you thought I was trying to check you out” Again I am left speechless as this was untrue. He just kept going and the more he said, the worse his attitude and comments became. I looked at him again and told him this is making very uncomfortable to the point where I was picking at my nail beds causing them to bleed which I then showed him. He still kept going. Any REAL trainer would have immediately stopped. He said that my problem is that I don’t trust him and I need to be able to trust and share everything with him. I couldn't understand where any of this was coming from. I again said that I simply don’t see how me not wanting to work out in front of people had anything to do with my mental health. Plenty of women I know don’t like to work out around people. Also From the first time speaking with him, he kept making statements relating to psychology and how much he loved it and that he has dabbled in the medical field and dabbled in psychology in the past. He even said to me on the phone a few hours before my appt that he lets his psychology side out some times when he shouldn’t and it tends to get him into trouble some times. He continued with saying "I've picked up on a lot of things with you" which he then said “the parallel parking thing” and the “driving” thing. I asked how me not being able to parallel park and being hesitant to drive almost an hour each way, had anything to do with this. He again said this was toxic and that nobody would be able to help me achieve my fitness goals. I finally had reach my limit needed to get out of there and said "look, you yourself have stated two times now that this is toxic and you want no part of this, so I am going to go". He then threw is hands up and continued with the anger and said “ I don’t even know how to leave the room now, you wouldn’t walk in front of me before, so do I leave the room first?” Now I have had it. This whole time he was degrading, rude, unprofessional, and crossed many professional lines. I said to him “ well since you think that I have issues with walking in front of you, Ill go first. I walked out and he started another comment and I interrupted and said “you know, to me it seems as though you don’t like not getting what you want and then you become angry”. And I left. This guy thinks he can degrade women, make them think they have issues so that he can in turn be the one to help “fix” them. I felt dirty when I left and had to pull over in parking lot because I was crying too much to drive. The attitude he had was awful. It was not the same as the person I spoke with on the phone. When he said we need to go upstairs to talk, I just thought we were going up there to figure out another alternative or plan of where/when to work out. I was in complete shock with how this all played out. He abused his job title in so many ways. He now has my money and will not refund it, even though I said I’d pay him for the one day we met and would refrain from leaving a negative review. This is upsetting for many reason but mostly that he kept trying to play psychologist and get very very personal and wouldn’t stop no matter how uncomfortable I said I was, and eventually that is going to go very badly for him. He has no right speaking to a female the way he did to me, and the day will come when he oversteps with a woman who really does have mental health issues and he will set off a trigger in that person. You want to be a psychologist? Go get a degree. The icing on the cake? I called the apartment complex and they said they have no such agreement with this guy and don’t even know who he is as he doesn’t even live there!! And he yelled at me for having trust issues? If he was truly a decent trainer he would have immediately ended his rant when I said I was uncomfortable the first time and would have refunded me the $630 he owes me. I have reached out to many trainers since and they all say that this not ok behavior. I don’t know how you sleep at night Todd. You truly had me fooled.
