How Much Does a Personal Trainer Cost Brisbane?

The investment you make in a personal trainer will depend on the frequency, experience and level of the trainer. The average cost for single personal training sessions will range from $45-$90. Normally if you book more than one session per week the cost per session will reduce for example. I personally change $75 for one session per week, and $100 for 2 sessions per week and $150 for 3 sessions per week.

Is Personal Training Worth The Money?

Very good question. It depends on how much you value your health and fitness goals, hiring a personal trainer may seem like a luxury, but if you are serious about your fitness goals and you want to get the most from your workouts then a personal trainer is a great investment to make for yourself.

A personal trainer can also quickly recognise any problems with your form and movement and design a program that will work for you. A personal trainer can also help you work towards any fitness goals you may have.

Is 2 PT Sessions a Week Enough?

Generally to make any real change in your fitness and health you will need to do at least 2 training sessions per week. A good approach is to book a personal trainer for 1 to 2 sessions per week in combination with do 1 to 2 training sessions yourself. A personal trainer can provide you with a full training program to cover home workouts and gym sessions when you are alone.

Should I Pay for Personal Training?

Most personal trainers will be happy to offer you a free taster session, however as much as we love our work we do need to pay our bills like everyone else. Paying for a personal trainer will almost certainly provide you with huge long term benefits and is one of the best investments you can make in yourself.

Will I Lose Weight With a Personal Trainer?

If that is your goal then yes, personally I don't like the term weight loss, I prefer fat loss, if you just set out to lose weight then you don't need a personal trainer, you can just cut your calories and do lots of cardio which will work, however the weight loss with likely be muscle, bone, water and some body fat.

The weight you lose will likely come straight back on also as your maintenance level will drop. A better approach is to build strength first which will boost your metabolism and make long term fat loss much more sustainable.

How Can I Reduce my Stomach Fat?

Stomach fat is a storage of body fat. Some people are genetically prone to storing fat in that region more than others. You cannot spot reduce your stomach fat you can only reduce your overall body fat which will result in a flat stomach if you persist.

Is a 30 Minute Personal Training Session Enough?

Lots of personal trainers do offer 30 min sessions, personally I prefer to work longer with my clients so we can get more done. If you only want to invest in a 30min session with a trainer then you will likely need to do your warm up and down by yourself.
