Having someone MAKE you move and get fit (and do it in the correct way!), feels like the dream, but it comes with a heavy price tag!
The cost of having someone to motivate you and make your personalised training programme will depend on the location of your gym. If you’re in a city centre, it’ll likely cost you more. The cost can start from around £25 per hour when you bulk buy a series of sessions up front. For a one-off, it’ll be around £35 plus.
When you sign up to a gym, you’re often given a free personal training session or two, so you get used to the facilities. The trainer is also going to try and get you to commit to more paid sessions with them. Make the most of the free sessions and get as much information out of them as possible!
If you really do want a trainer but want to keep costs down, you can also ask to share sessions with your partner or with a friend, so you can split the cost and get motivated together.
Ask your trainer about the exercises you’ve done and the weights you’ve used and then practice them by yourself in between sessions to make them last longer.
