Personal Trainers

The Cost of Hiring A Personal Trainer

When it comes to hiring a personal trainer costs will vary. Prices are usually charged per hour. You will need to book a session, and if your time goes over what you had initially planned then you will be charged more.

A typical hourly session with a personal trainer can range from £20 to £100 per hour. Prices may even be higher depending on individual circumstances.

Some of the factors that influence the cost of a personal trainer include:

  • Where you live,
  • What time your sessions are booked for,
  • How experienced your personal trainer is,
  • Whether you need very specialised training,
  • Whether you need to pay gym fees,
  • Travel costs of the trainer,
  • The length of your sessions.

Though it may seem expensive to hire a personal trainer, it often works out more cost effective than following your own exercise plan that doesn't work. This is because the workouts are tailored to you and will show obvious development and progress when followed consistently.

You should also bear in mind that personal trainers should be professionally registered.

Cutting Down On Costs

All personal trainers work differently, and many will be happy to negotiate a price with you. It's also possible to work together with a friend, though this means you won't be getting the one-on-one attention that you would otherwise.

When you hire a personal trainer you do not need to see them every day, or every week. Once a month could be enough for you, or you could use a few sessions before continuing the exercise plan on your own. It all depends on your budget, your goals and your individual circumstances.

Whatever you do, make sure to discuss the payment options with your personal trainer upfront.
