• WHAT DOES A PERSONAL TRAINER DO?

    A personal trainer (PT) is a certified individual who has knowledge, skills and abilities to design safe and effective exercise programmes and deliver one-to-one training. 

    PTs have varying degrees of knowledge but must pass a level 3 certificate in personal training. 

    PTs help their clients to achieve their health and fitness goals, such as weight loss, fat loss and improved sports performance.

  • HOW MUCH DOES A PERSONAL TRAINER COST?

    The cost of a personal training session varies. As a benchmark, a session costs between £30-£65 and is 45 minutes to one hour long. Prices in London are usually higher, costing £40-65 per session. 

    This cost of a personal training session is separate to your membership – you pay the PT directly.

    Speak to a PT directly about how much they charge. Some PTs offer discounts for bulk sessions.

    Go to the Personal Trainers tab on your home gym page to find out more about the PTs at your gym.

  • DO I NEED A PERSONAL TRAINER?

    How long you need a PT will depend on your goal. If you're new to the gym or want to learn specific equipment, you'll need less time than if you're training to boost performance or preparing for a competition, race etc.

  • IS IT WORTH GETTING A PERSONAL TRAINER?

  • WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A PERSONAL TRAINER?

    There are several benefits of personal training. These include:

    • Teaching you the correct form: A personal trainer will guide you on how to perform exercises correctly and safely. If you're new to the gym or new to lifting weights, getting the technique right is vital.

    • Hold an objective eye: When working out alone, you can't always tell if you need to adjust your posture, position, or range of movement. Personal trainers monitor your form during your training and correct you if necessary.

    • Knowledge and experience: PTs must stay up to date with industry trends and training methods, which will save you time from doing all the research yourself.

    • Push your limits: Personal trainers are passionate and supportive, but they'll also challenge and motivate you to push yourself further.

    • Hold you accountable: Sometimes, the toughest battle is getting to the gym. A personal trainer will hold you accountable; it's not so easy to cancel the gym if you have a personal training session.

    • Design a training programme: Personal trainers will create a tailored training programme to suit your needs, abilities and goals. For example, if your goal is to lose weight, your programme will include specific weight-loss exercises.Your personal trainer will monitor and adapt your plan based on your progress.

  • CAN PERSONAL TRAINERS WRITE MEAL PLANS?

    It's uncommon for PTs to offer nutrition advice. However, some PTs might suggest small lifestyle and diet changes. PTs are not nutritionists, and it's always a good idea to seek professional advice.

  • WHAT CAN I EXPECT AT MY FIRST PT SESSION?

    • Fitness test: You might find your personal trainer will ask you to perform some exercises and body measurements to evaluate and record your fitness level. Don’t be worried about how well you do in these, just do your best. It’s about understanding your baseline, and a way to keep track of your progress.

    • What to wear and bring: Just as you would do training alone in the gym, make sure to wear proper attire so you’re geared up for your training session. Wear breathable and lightweight clothing and non-slip supportive trainers. Bring a towel and bottle of water with you, along with anything the personal trainer suggests you to bring. The last thing you want to be is to feel uncomfortable or ill-prepared.

  • HOW DO I GET THE MOST OUT OF PERSONAL TRAINING?

    Before you start, make it clear what your goals are. Be honest about your previous experience and speak up if you're struggling. It's okay to ask your PT questions; no question is too silly. Bring a pen and paper to take notes so you can continue learning after your session. And always cancel your session in good time if you can't make it.
