When it comes to Personal Trainers, you definitely get what you pay for. Here are a few steps that you should take to ensure you are getting the most qualified trainer.
The first step is to find out what the average going rate for Personal Training is in your area. Price per session is really relative to where you live. For example; In a place like Southern California you'll find rates of $85-100 an hour to be about average for a good trainer. In the Mid-West you'll see prices more along the lines of $40 an hour. If you're looking to pay $40 an hour in Los Angeles for a good trainer, good luck.
Regardless of where you live, you will always come across a trainer who is advertising their services at $20 an hour... Beware of this trainer. This is a huge flag that this trainer is inexperienced or working without a certification or insurance! Worst of all, you could get hurt!
Once you narrow your search down to a few intriguing trainers, there are a few more questions you will need to ask before signing on the dotted line; *Is the Trainer Certified? *Is the Trainer Insured? *Are you training in a gym or at home? *Is the trainer Male or Female? *Will you receive a discount if you buy sessions in bulk? *Is Nutrition included? *Does the Trainer have a website?
Getting the answers to these key questions will help you decide what that Trainer is worth. A trainer who comes to your home in Los Angeles, for example, is well worth over $100 an hour, as you will not need a gym membership or equipment. Good Trainers will typically have their own websites or videos. I find that the most qualified Personal Trainers here in San Diego, for example have their own websites. Not just basic websites, but eye-catching sites with lots of testimonials. Testimonials show that the trainer is proven.
Use these tips to choose the best Personal Trainer for you in your area. Good luck!
