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.

Coach Z is well versed in his education with nutrition, kinesiology, and exercise science. He pushes you while encouraging you. He's been training my bf and I for a couple of months now and we have seen amazing results and improvement. He doesn't just focus on the weight he takes the time to really make sure you're doing the exercises correctly and looking at the long term goal. Coach also wants to make sure you're personal goals, outside of the physical, and ensure those are met too and he also wants to help with those. He's an exceptional trainer with years of experience. If you're looking for a great trainer who cares about you and not just your weight Coach Z is who you NEED to see!!!

Coach Mihai gives me workout that's diverse, complex and focused on functionality. I never get bored because there's usually a new move, a new challenge or option. He's always on time, communicative and so supportive in my journey to become healthier and stronger. Mihai has been so much more than a personal trainer. I've gotten a lot of local tips from him on where to eat, what meal delivery service to use, etc and he's always down to discuss healthy lifestyle tips and tricks.

Mihai has been instrumental in helping me get back into shape. No easy task as I have degenerative arthritis in my spine and was fairly nervous about exercises when we started. Thanks to Mihai’s expertise I am stronger than I have been in 10 years and am well on my way to being in the best shape of my life. And it’s very exciting to be able to do any activity without fear again :). I highly recommend Mihai if you’re looking for a great personal trainer!

I ended up meeting Mi as my personal trainer and I was exremely happy with the way he understood my goal and constantly working with me to help my goals. I have a lower back problem and cervical spine issues. So I was not so flexible in lifting weights and working out. Mi helped me in identifying my weak spots and teaching me different ways to build strength in those areas. I was able to do more and different workout than I used to do before. He is really a cool guy to work with and is serious about his clients. I strongly recommend him.

I have worked with a number of personal trainers throughout the years and I have to say, JR is one of my favorites. I struggle with several medical conditions (Lupus, Vasculitis, Osteoporosis) and I have to be very selective with specialists due to the variety of my special needs. Due to limited mobility and medications, I gained more than 50 pounds in a few short years. My self-esteem was at rock bottom! It took me a long time to get the courage to work with someone 1:1 due to the huge amount of fear and concern of hurting myself (and/or failing). I reached out to JR in 2017 shortly before a family tragedy caused my Lupus to flare up. It was more than a year later that I actually got back to him saying I had the strength to finally begin. He got back to me immediately - and we got together just a few days later. The first thing I noticed about JR was his kindness, empathy and compassion toward my situation. He seemed to understand where I was coming from and addressed my fears directly. Our first session was just sitting down together, mapping out a plan of attack and doing a fitness assessment. I was terrified! JR was so comforting and encouraging that once my test was finished, I was actually proud of myself and very eager to get back to work on my health and fitness! No doubt, JR has his work cut out with me. Each and every session is different - my body is an ever-changing minefield of injuries and pain. I was completely shocked that JR was able to work with my individual needs so quickly and easily. Although he arrives with a pre-planned workout, JR is able to modify or change his sessions as needed, reacting to my body’s responses and my fitness needs for the day. He has an extremely well-rounded knowledge of basic anatomy and physiology - and able to share that information intelligently and without judgment. So far, his sessions combine breathing and balance, eye coordination, stretching, flexibility, and strength training. He is a stickler for proper form and is generous with allowing time and practice to get each exercise done right. JR’s workouts are specific to whatever needs are most important for my long-term fitness goals and he has a kind way of getting me to work hard and keep at it. Each session, I feel like a new person – despite the fact that I am out of breath and exhausted! JR writes down all the exercises each session and sends them to me before he has even walked out the door. While teaching, his instructions are clear and precise. I rarely have a problem remembering them so I can practice on my own. If you are looking for a top-notch personal trainer, please do yourself a favor and consider JR. He is always on time, reliable and will give you a very personal workout designed for your particular needs. He truly cares about his client’s well-being and progress - I just can’t recommend him enough!
