Michelle R. says, "Ever heard of a personal trainer who does in-gym testing with diabetics to find the best workout for them AND lower their insulin usage? I have :-) Scott conferred with my doctor on a regular basis to help me understand that my choices and consistency have a direct impact on my quality of life and longevity. I want to be alive to see my daughter get married. Within 6 months of 3x/week workouts, I had cut my daily insulin usage in half, which directly correlates to life expectancy in Type I Diabetics. I was only doing what felt like the right level of exertion, and doing some "in gym" circuit weight training - recording blood sugar levels before and after each circuit, and adjusting my insulin pump accordingly. We learned a lot about my energy, my abilities, and what workouts were right for me. You can see from my photos that I lost a ton of weight, streamlined, toned up, got much stronger and even more athletic. After Scott left the Dallas area for Houston, I found another gym and personal trainer, but something was missing. So I made a couple of week long trips to Houston to work with Scott every day to fine-tune my program and get re-energized. After a year in Houston, Scott moved back to Los Angeles, and that's when we did online coaching from time to time to keep me on track. " Read more

Nothing worth having is easy! My coaching focuses on the individual. No program works exactly the same for another. I’ve been a personal trainer for over 5 years and have been a martial artist for about 7 years. I am currently competing for and coaching at an authentic Muay Thai gym in Ventura, California. My background is in boxing, Muay Thai, Brazilian Jiu Jitsu, and Wrestling. I specialize in helping beginners as well! My favorite thing to do is teach people how to be confident, disciplined, and how to defend themselves. My goal is to provide value and help your journey with my experience. I truly believe that working with me, your potenti

Your Personal Training questions, answered

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Lessons.

How much does a personal trainer cost near me?

A personal trainer costs $40 to $70 per hour on average or $250 to $400 per month for two sessions per week. Prices depend on the session length, location, trainer's experience, and if you buy a monthly package or book individual sessions.

Personal training rates at popular gyms are $50 to $110 per session, with most sessions lasting one hour. Many gyms offer a free initial fitness assessment with a certified personal trainer.

Is hiring a personal trainer worth it?

Hiring a personal trainer can be worth it if you need accountability, are having difficulty achieving your fitness goals on your own, or are returning to a fitness routine after an injury. A personal trainer can help you set realistic expectations, design a custom fitness plan, measure your progress, and boost your motivation.

A personal trainer can suggest activities that work best for your body and your schedule to maximize your results with the time and equipment available to you. Trainers also provide critical guidance for proper exercise form and movement, reducing your risk of injury.

Can you pay for a personal trainer with insurance or an HSA?

Health insurance typically does not cover the cost of a personal trainer, and you can only pay for a personal trainer with your Health Savings Account (HSA) if your physician or nurse practitioner prescribes an exercise regimen.

Your doctor must write a letter of medical necessity (LMN) confirming the personal training sessions are intended to treat or prevent a medical condition, and you must provide a copy to the IRS when filing your taxes.

How often should you see a personal trainer?

You should meet with your personal trainer 1 to 3 times per week, depending on your current fitness level and experience, short-term and long-term goals, and how often you're able to train solo during the week. Most trainers recommend beginning with 2 to 3 sessions per week for at least six weeks to establish a routine.

  • If you're on a budget and can only meet with your personal trainer once per week, you'll need to train on your own at least one to three times per week to make progress toward your fitness goals.
  • Consider seeing your personal trainer up to 4 times per week to work on short-term goals, like dropping a dress size before a wedding or training for a sports competition.

What does a personal trainer do?

A personal trainer starts by evaluating your current fitness level, strengths and weaknesses, and skills, then develops a customized exercise plan to help you meet your goals. The trainer works one-on-one with you to monitor your progress and provide guidance and encouragement.

A trainer will ensure you're working each muscle group correctly and at the right frequency, and that you're using proper form for each exercise to avoid injury.

How do I find the best personal trainer near me?

For the best results, aim to build a long-term relationship with your personal trainer to help you get in shape, stay in shape, and achieve your fitness goals. Follow these tips to find the best personal trainer for you:

  • Look for an NCSA Certified Personal Trainer (NSCA-CPT) or Certified Performance and Sports Scientist (CPSS).
  • If you have specific goals, such as bodybuilding or running a marathon, select a trainer with experience in that area.
  • Read their reviews on Lessons and Google.
  • Meet with the trainer to discuss your goals, workout preferences, and any health conditions.
  • Ask them how the exercises will change and progress over time. Be wary of trainers who offer only vague answers, as this may indicate a lack of experience.
  • Confirm the personal trainer has liability insurance and training in CPR and first aid.

What questions should I ask personal trainers before hiring?

Ask these questions to ensure you choose a personal trainer with the right experience and skills:

  • How long have you been a personal trainer?
  • Which certifications do you have?
  • What is your fitness specialty?
  • What is your teaching style?
  • How do you assess a new client?
  • What experience do you have working with clients at my fitness level?
  • Do you have any client photos or video testimonials?
  • What does your program include?
  • What results should I expect to see?
  • How long will it take to reach my fitness goals?
  • How do you track fitness goals and progress?
  • How will the exercises change over time?
  • Do you have liability insurance?
  • Are you trained in CPR and first aid?
