Brandon says, "Over the last 15 years I really let myself go. At one point I weighed in at 355 lbs. A number of things gathered in my mind that helped me convince myself not even to attempt to workout or start eating right again. The hardest part was eating right. For years I ate as a necessity of convenience. I thought that I needed a red bull and sugar to wake up in the A.M. Turns out, going to the gym and eating a well balanced breakfast works the same, if not better! I lost 35lbs in First 1st month!" Read more

Steve H. says, "About 2-3 months ago, I started looking for a football trainer for my 10 year old son. My son plays outside linebacker/ safety in tackle football. I wanted someone specific to these positions. I had never done anything like this before so I wanted to do my homework before making a decision. I spoke to several trainers from various websites and organizations. There were some were out of my price range, some that didn't have experience with the positions I wanted, some that didn't communicate well in addition to others. When I reached out to Paul through lessons, you could tell he was eager to speak with me. He texted, emailed and called me several times before I was available. Once I did speak to him, he almost immediately addressed all my concerns. He just had a different vibe than the rest of the people I spoke to. You could tell he was driven which happened to be a quality I was looking for. We met with Paul for a consultation and he blew me and my son away. His positive attitude and work ethic are contagious. On the spot I agreed to 4 weeks of training. The first session was great! Paul had a great way of connecting at an age appropriate level. He was able to keep my son's attention, work hard, and have fun doing it. As the sessions went on and Paul became more familiar with my son, he began introducing a plethora of different drills to strictly target my son's position(s). He explained how it related to actually playing and what the purpose of each drill was. Paul often does the drills with him which adds a little something to the experience. We're heading to our 5th session tomorrow and my son can't wait to see what Coach Paul has designed for him. Paul has such a great attitude that my son doesn't even realize how difficult the tasks Paul has for him are. He works his butt off, is improving, and loves it. To summarize, if you're looking for a trainer that is knowledgeable, passionate, dedicated, positive, hardworking and innovative, Paul is the guy you need. He is going to improve your child exponentially and have a positive overall impact on your child. Regarding the business aspect, Paul is a true professional. He's upfront and honest about everything. He breaks down the financials for you. He is excellent at communicating. There is no room for misunderstanding. Just an honest hardworking guy who clearly loves football and training people."

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?

Reviews for Trenton personal trainers

Recent success stories from people in the Trenton area.
April
At 28 I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroid Disease and it's been very tough on me. The doctors told me I could lose up to 3 lbs a year if I work really hard. It was very discouraging but I accepted it. Last July, I came off the meds because I felt like they were poisoning me and I saw no change with them. I gained weight, I didn't sleep well at night and I had no energy. Now, I sleep like a baby and I lost 12lbs in just 1 month! I never wore dresses because my mommy tummy poked through, now I love dresses.

Charles is an amazing trainer, he knows the intricacies of the musculoskeletal system and how it coordinates with different exercises with different weights. He’s not a trainer that will leave you to your own devices and give you an exercise to do and that’s it. Charles takes the time and the focus to place it on your through every rep and movement, he guides you on the focusing of the particular muscle being worked to achieve the highest quality of work done.

Coach Paul is a true student and lover of the game. His patience and engaging approach to coaching have made a world of difference for my son as he started his first year in football. Not only did Coach make the training sessions fun and enjoyable but he also ensured my son was getting a great workout while learning different skills. The passion and dedication Coach Paul brings is truly seen and commendable.

I loved the fact that Mr. Cooper works around your schedule making it convenient and leaving no room for excuses on why you weren't able to work out. He focuses on your weaknesses and makes sure he pushes you every minute spend during the session. He's an amazing motivator and I'd recommend him to anyone of all ages.
