How Much Is A Personal Trainer?
You have tried every diet and exercise video, some twice or more, and you still aren’t happy with your body. You are overweight and feel awful. You are wondering how much is a personal trainer.
The answer to this seemingly straight forward question isn’t clear cut. Instead, it’s similar to shopping for a car.
What is your desired result?

Is it a 4-wheel drive? No.
Does it have a lot of power? No.
Will people OOH and AAH at you as you drive past? No.
Will you want to show it off to everyone you knew and especially those in high school who bullied you? No.
Does it make you feel like you are on top of the world when you drive it? No.
Does it have features like heated arm rests, air purification systems, and a surround sound system? No.

So, how much is a personal trainer?
The rate is a factor of:
- years of experience
- certification held – not all are reputable
- type of facility – private fitness studio or big box gym
- location – cost of the living is not the same across the United States
- length of the session – 30 minutes or 60 minutes
- is it private (just you) or semi-private (you and others)
- are other services included to help you reach your goals such as personalized meal planning
- proven results aka testimonials
Depending your answers, you should expect to pay $40 – $125 per hour.
Are you surprised? Don’t be.
The question really comes down to this:
Do you want to invest your money in something of value so you get the highest return on investment like you will with personal training, or do you want to settle for just okay?
In other words, do you want the Mercedez-Benz or the Chevrolet?
