Considering that many trainers work part-time or on weekends, it makes sense that trainers have to charge more to make a living. When you work with an online trainer, they can offer cheaper advice because you don’t train 1:1 with them at the gym. Since the gym takes a cut (sometimes up to 50%), I prefer to train at someone’s home and charge less than they would pay at the gym. Today we look at factors such as location, economy, target audience, cost of training the client and how self-esteem affects the price of your personal training.
Is it worth paying for a personal trainer?
There are so many programmes, videos and equipment – if you don’t know what you’re doing, it’s easy to lose track and get discouraged. It’s like having a highly skilled sports buddy who never lets you down because of his own conflicts. He can help you develop a programme that will shape your arms for a sleeveless dress, or improve your endurance so you can make it to the finish line. Make sure you hire a personal fitness trainer who is certified by a reputable organisation.
Is it expensive to hire a personal trainer?
Make sure the trainer checks your health history and tailors your workout to any previous injuries or health problems. Many gyms will not give you a fee schedule for their personal trainers until you come in for a fitness assessment and discuss your goals. Your online trainer may notice you haven’t signed in on your app and ask what’s going on, but it’s an afterthought compared to a personal trainer who gets transferred. It combines the individualisation of a personal training with the community, fun and energy of a group training.
