Numbness in thumb during strength training. What causes this?

I started feeling numbness on my right thumb during my strength training workout yesterday. It hasn t gone away. What causes this and should I be concerned. Furthermore, how long might this last. I have been working out with a trainer the last 5 weeks and have never experienced this before. However, we did a new exercise yesterday when I did experience this.
