WHAT IS THE COST OF A PERSONAL TRAINER?



We've all thought, during some stage of our fitness journey whether a personal trainer would be worth it. At the start of my fitness journey I never knew how much a personal trainer would cost and what they even did.


Personally for me, it was quite beneficial.


At the beginning of my fitness journey, I used my personal trainer for about 8 months, where he taught me about the importance of a healthy lifestyle, correct form, and gave me the accountability to really concrete exercise into my life. From having conflicting thoughts about starting with my trainer, my fitness journey quickly turned into a rapid obsession. Kickstarting the life I really wanted to live.


Going back to the initial question, "What is the cost of a Personal Trainer?"


The cost of a personal trainer can range from anywhere from as low as $50 to $200 for a specialist in specific field. Really you get what you pay for. All Personal Trainers Prices vary, with the amount of value they are providing.


People who are usually just starting their Personal Training Career's tend to charge anywhere from $50-$70 per session, they will give you basic but beneficial knowledge to help you start your fitness journey.


Usually the more experienced trainers charge between $70- $130 per session. These Personal Trainers tend to be more qualified and experienced and should be giving you optimal workout plans and nutrition plans to help you really progress in your fitness journey. Paying at this price range gives you a piece of mind that they have worked with a variety of clients before and can give you a true roadmap to success that you may not receive from a newbie...


The level of service and expertise you can expect from a personal trainer can vary greatly depending on their experience, credentials, and the fees they charge. Here are some potential differences you may notice between a cheaper and more expensive personal trainer:

  1. Credentials and Experience: Generally speaking, more expensive personal trainers may have more experience, advanced certifications, and degrees in related fields such as kinesiology, exercise science, or physical therapy. They may also have a track record of working with clients who have more complex health issues, injuries, or specific training goals. A cheaper personal trainer may have fewer credentials, less experience, or a smaller client base.

  2. Customised Training Programs: An expensive personal trainer may be more likely to offer personalized training programs that are tailored to your specific fitness goals, preferences, and physical limitations. They may also use more advanced equipment, such as heart rate monitors, body composition scanners, or even virtual reality simulations, to optimize your training. A cheaper personal trainer may offer a more generic or cookie-cutter approach to training.

  3. Attention to Detail: More expensive personal trainers may offer a higher level of attention to detail in terms of monitoring your form, technique, and progress. They may be more hands-on during your workouts, offering immediate feedback and corrections. They may also provide detailed reports on your progress, such as tracking your body measurements, strength gains, and endurance levels. A cheaper personal trainer may offer less personalised feedback and monitoring.

  4. Availability and Flexibility: More expensive personal trainers may have a more limited availability, as they may be in higher demand and have more clients. They may also have stricter cancellation policies or require a longer commitment to their services. Cheaper personal trainers may be more flexible in terms of scheduling, cancellations, and contract terms.

Ultimately, the level of service and expertise you can expect from a personal trainer will depend on the individual trainer and the fees they charge. It's important to do your research and ask questions about their credentials, experience, and approach to training before committing to any personal training program.


When I first got my Personal Trainer I was paying $100 per session, and truly believed it really had created a turning point in my life. Not only helping my kickstart my fitness journey forever, but also helping me feel good in my own my own skin, mentally and physically.
