Get Fit on a Budget: Cost Effective Personal Training

Sign up for a Package.

A lot of times gyms will offer personal training packages that give you a better deal versus buying sessions one by one. If you don’t find something like this, ask! The answer is always no unless you ask.

Join a Group Personal Training Session.

Group personal training sessions are going to be cheaper than one-on-one sessions. And keep in mind that you aren’t sharing a trainer with a huge group. Typically, it’s a small group of fewer than 10 people, and the trainer is still able to provide individualized attention and feedback.

Film Your Personal Training Session.

Ask your trainer if it’s okay to film your session. When you watch the session later, you will be able to see what you need to work on and you can keep the video recording handy for a quick and easy reminder of what you need to do in the gym, even without your trainer there to guide you.

Use an App.

There are so many good personal training apps on the market. My go-to favorite is Freeletics. With Freeletics, all you need is your phone. You don’t need to go to a fancy gym; all of the exercises are bodyweight-based exercises, so you don’t need any equipment.

App Download. 

Check out YouTube.

Much like using an app, you can pull up YouTube on your phone at the gym or bring up your favorite workouts on your laptop if you prefer working out at home. There are thousands of fitness-focused YouTube channels. Do a search for the type of workout you want to do and you will pull up hundreds of videos in seconds.
