It is likely that your programme will contain a combination of the following:
There are many options in terms of the overall duration of personal training programmes as well as the duration and frequency of your sessions. Again this is dependent on you and your goal, but your personal trainer will be able to guide you in the right direction.
Personal training is usually done on a one-to-one basis, however you may see personal trainers offering sessions for small groups too. Why not buddy up with a friend and train together for added motivation
Due to its personalised approach, personal training is one of the best activities you can do to achieve specific health and fitness goals you have. It caters to a range of abilities, needs and preferences, many people seek the support of a personal trainer to:
Prepare for a physical event or challenge, such as a 5k run
Feel less puffed out, for example being able to run around after your kids
Increase mobility and build strength, possibly following an injury
Improve awareness of healthy lifestyle choices
Increase confidence and motivation
Personal training sessions tend to start from £15 for 30 minutes and can reach up to £200 per hour depending on the expertise, experience and location of your trainer. Many personal trainers also practise in nutrition, rehabilitation, sports massage as well as other specialised areas. Training fees of these trainers tend to be in the higher range due to the level of knowledge and experience required.
Most trainers do also offer reduced rates when booking sessions in bulk, as well as loyalty schemes such as your 10th session free.
Whilst the majority of personal training sessions will require the use of equipment, such as free weights, kettlebells and resistance bands, your trainer should provide all of these. Just wear some supportive trainers and comfortable clothing you can exercise in and you’re good to go!
