The truth is there is a wide range of rates when it comes to hiring a Personal Trainer.
From complete newbie beginner trainers to experienced, OG trainers, there are a number of factors that go into determining how much you should expect to pay for a personal trainer in Los Angeles.
So before we discuss the rates, let’s dive into a few of those considerations.
First things first, the term “personal training” in fitness marketing has been expanded to include group training, boot camps, 30-minute workouts, and other classes – when most people would define it to be one-on-one personal training for an hour.
Therefore, it’s important to research and find out the type of workout you will be receiving for the hourly rate.
That said, I’ve seen rates as low as $10/hour and as high as $250/hour for one-on-one personal training in Los Angeles, and as mentioned, you largely get what you pay for.
Why such a wide range?
At the lower end of the spectrum, you get trainers who don’t have experience or knowledge. Plain and simple. More often than not, these are people are desperate to get clients and hope to do so by lowering their price often to ridiculous levels.
The average rate for one-on-one personal training in Los Angeles is about $100 per session. Lower-end clubs might charge as little as $75. Inexperienced low-end trainers might go as low as $50.
When it comes to personal trainers that are early on in their career, many of them have little to no experience with training clients. They are usually fresh out of schooling and are hungry to get started in the field.
Most of these trainers will be very knowledgeable about exercises and the function of the body. They will know what movements work which body parts and will have a great understanding of how the exercises affect your body. Where these trainers tend to fall short is having the experience of dealing with clients and their clients mentality. The Human aspect of training and being able to listen and watch the client through the session to see if they are giving full effort.
Trainers at this level will under price themselves in order to build clientele. You may find a quality trainer in this price range, however those are diamonds in the rough. And if they gain clients quickly their price range will then begin to change quickly.
At Training Loft, our team of talented, certified trainers have decades of experience, and are able to focus on the training and the clients effort. We’ll be honest—that’s hard to find.
Trainers that have been in the field for awhile have some clients under their belt. They have been learning hands on with clients and teaching for awhile. Trainers at this stage are starting to establish their name and are figuring out how to manage and handle clients personalities. These trainers are young and energetic. Some may have started experimenting on themselves with their own training to see where they can push their body.
Trainers at this level are still figuring out their niche and what style of training they accel at, for example (Crossfit, strength training, body building, HIIT, Yoga, Pilates, cardio kickboxing, etc.) . They may say that they can help everyone and do all types of training as they are interested in all of it. Intermediate trainers may also have some basic knowledge on nutrition and dieting.
The Trainers at this level will have a set price but will be willing to negotiate depending how long you decide to work with them.
These trainers are professionals. Trainers that have been in the industry for this amount of time are serious about their craft. They have figured out how to program a well balanced training session for clients, along with a well developed meal plan. These Trainers know who their demographic is and are able to help clients get the results they are looking for efficiently.
These personal trainer are able to build a custom plan for you and your body, and part of that means adjusting to what your body struggles with. Your trainer’s outside, expert perspective can go beyond that though, often identifying limitations you didn’t know you had in the first place, and potentially even solving longstanding mysteries about why you haven’t previously been able to reach certain fitness milestones.
These limitations or deficiencies that could easily go unnoticed by trainers with less experience or completely missed when working out on your own can also be dangerous if left unaddressed—and an experienced personal trainer will not only catch those hitches but know how to work around them if needed or overcome them if possible.
Frankly, for us, for this reason alone a certified and experienced personal trainer is more than worth the investment.
