Luis S. says, "I am really glad that I had the opportunity to take lessons in the dance studio Timeless Elegant Dance is based in. I would like to specifically point out Frank who is teaching me Salsa. In my case, I have a wedding coming up and wanted to learn as much Salsa as I can in a short notice. Frank is so accommodating and empathic to my plight as he was willing to work his schedule around mine.

Being a certified fitness and nutritional coach is not all about training and food programs. My approach is a we can do it together approach. What that means the client doesn't have to suffer going through their weight loss goal alone. I empower others to take the steps into what makes them champion their goals. We're human beings, let's team up to better our humanity. I enjoy every challenge that is put in front of me. When it's was winning my first world karate title or graduating from college; being a martial artist for the past 30 years. Having ADHD , and not being the most atheistic person, is the challenges I continue to deal with ever...

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?

I lost about 40 lbs total working with the personal trainers at NBI Fitness. It was not an easy journey but I’m glad that I stuck through it. The nutritional guidance and support was especially helpful.

I started working with Jamil after a very long period of close to no physical activity (several years). My work involved sitting at a desk for prolonged periods of time and my diet consisted of basically coffee + pastries. At the beginning of working with him I could barely do a push-up, a lunge, or a sit-up. I am very careful with who I chose to work with, and Jamil was amazing at creating a safe, non-judgmental space in which I could basically start working on my fitness from zero. He put together a personalized plan for me that accounted for my fitness level (or lack thereof), health limitations (lower back pain) and goals - and kept reviewing it weekly as my fitness level improved. Jamil provided guidance on nutrition, focusing on whole, non-processed foods as well as other lifestyle factors to improve my overall health and wellbeing. I noticed my body get stronger week by week as I was able to lift heavier weights, and build more endurance - all as a result of Jamil constantly pushing my limits safely and effectively and providing encouragement and support when needed. Also, my back pain subsided - largely as a result of working with Jamil (after seeing several fancy rheumatologists for years to no avail). Later, I felt strong enough to take on Brazilian jiu-jitsu and he worked with me to accommodate our fitness plan around my new martial arts schedule. Jamil is one of the most fun people to work with that I have ever met. He is an effective communicator, professional, uplifting, caring, reliable and provides the highest level of quality possible.
