Polly M. says, "I began my weight loss/get fit journey in February 2019. I went to the club 6 days/week, walking on the treadmill for @5 miles and circuit training. After a few months my progress slowed and I wasn’t gaining any muscle tone. I noticed Joe training another member on several occasions. In my first four months working with Joe, I went from over 30% body fat to 12.5% and gained a fit and muscular physique. Joe also helped me with my diet, still lower carbs but higher protein and a new vitamin regime. It’s helped me tremendously- strong hair, and nails, great skin, too! He also helped me with my sleep, I went from Spending over 12 hours a night in bed to a healthy restful 7-8 hours of sleep. I now receive many comments and compliments from friends & acquaintances at my favorite restaurant. I frequently promote Joe and share his contact information with many. He’s the best Personal Trainer in the city - and more! Polly M." Read more

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?

Details of work out, positive attitude

I was completely overwhelmed at the idea of going to a gym but my attempts at losing weight had stalled and I was desperate for some help. I had never worked out a day in my life, and was faced with what felt like an insurmountable task of ever being healthy. I was literally frightened at the prospect of trusting another person with my (lack of) fitness! Joe has been my personal trainer for 15 months now. The results I have achieved are amazing and are largely due to Joe's perfect combination of diverse methods, individualized exercise programs and challenging yet achievable goal setting. I've blown past many of the goals we set together. I've lost 75 pounds. My body fat is in single digits. I've gained tremendous knowledge and ability to eat healthy, sleep well, and live an active lifestyle I never dreamed was possible. Joe is a gifted instructor with a keen eye for form, and for what will work for me personally. I have never felt more flexible and strong! I look forward to every session and can't wait to see what we can achieve together in the months and years ahead! Not only does Joe bring enthusiasm and a sense of humor to our sessions, he also brings a broad understanding of joint and muscle anatomy and function. His professionalism, extensive knowledge, and enthusiastic commitment to his work provide the perfect scenario for success and sets foundations for my new, healthier life. Sometimes, someone comes into your life that changes everything, raises the bar, makes you laugh, feel comfortable, and encourages you to feel capable of achieving goals beyond your own belief. In my life, that person is Joe Cross. He is one of the most incredible people I know, an absolutely selfless person. He has changed my life. Joe is not just my trainer, he is my training partner. We both invest in this partnership, and that is why Joe is the best at what he does. I highly recommend Joe for anyone looking for a personal trainer. You won't be disappointed. Instead, you'll be amazed and what you can achieve with him as your partner!
