The national average cost of personal training is $45 to $70 per hour session so that means you can expect to pay around $55.

This depends on your goals and your current fitness levels. As a general rule a minimum of twice a week will help you embed new habits, learn the skills, and develop your central nervous system.

Everyone’s ‘bucket list’ or goals are different, which is why it’s important for your coach to understand what’s important to you.  This will then help determine the right frequency, and remember the longer you spend with the right trainer, the greater the benefit.

How long should you commit for?

After about six to eight weeks with one to two sessions per week, by doing this you’ll find that you have developed new habits and see noticeable improvement.  After that you will have new goals and continue seeing the trainer or you might choose to start exercising on your own.

Noticeable gains will be more apparent after your first 6 weeks. If you’ve previously been working out, noticeable results might take a little longer to manifest, because your body is used to strength training. Expect results in about four to twelve weeks.
