How Much Does Personal Training Cost In Los Angeles?

You’ve decided it’s time to get in the gym, tighten up the diet and get moving towards your goals but between the 6-week challenges and influencers giving bad advice, how to start can be confusing.

Given the confusion, hiring a good trainer seems like the best decision.

But how much does it cost?

To understand why pricing matters you first need to understand what makes a good vs. not so good trainer. Because personal training is a certified, not licensed profession pretty much anyone who can read and has a nice physique can claim to be a trainer.

The problem is that what goes into being a good trainer takes years of practice and study and if you’re going to invest your hard-earned money with someone then it better be worth it.

A trainer worth investing in should have:

  • A nationally recognized certification
  • A stable book of clients (high turnover is a red flag)
  • Examples of client results from people with goals similar to yours
  • Additionally specialized training or certifications in areas of your goal
  • Professional references

With a good trainer, you’re paying not only for guidance and expertise within a training session but also a program that should include nutrition and work to do outside of training sessions.

So what does a good trainer cost in Los Angeles?

Training prices can range from $50 to over $300 for an hour of training and everything in between. The price depends on the location in which the training takes place as well as the quality (but not always) of the trainer.

More affordable gyms like LA Fitness and Gold’s Gym will have one hour session prices between $60-$90 for a one hour session. In that case the gym takes a lot of the value so you’re really getting a $30 / hr trainer.

The higher-end gym’s like Equinox can charge $115 to $165 per session.

Generally, small private training gyms or experienced independent trainers will charge more per session in Los Angeles in the range of $100 – $150 per session.

Semi-private training can offer affodable access to high-quality training with sessions ranging from $50-$85 affordable

Higher-end private facilities such as Dog Pound can charge $200/ session.

And well-established celebrity trainers can command higher prices upwards of $250/hr although this is generally more hype than real value.

Many high-priced trainers are actually better marketers and salespeople than trainers.

“Remember, price is what you pay, Value is what you get.”

Like any investment, what you pay for a trainer isn’t necessarily about the expense, it is about the value.

I’d personally rather pay $5000 to get what I want than $500 to get nothing or worse yet, injured by a budget trainer.

At Virtuo we price our sessions competitively in the range of $65-$150 depending on the program and experience of the trainer.

But unlike independent trainers or big gyms, all our services regardless of price include custom programming as well as nutrition coaching at no extra cost. These services alone cost as much as $500 a month from other coaches but are included for all our clients.

While a good trainer really matters we feel that the system and a client’s ability to follow it is what ultimately get’s results and that pricing should be fair to give access to the people who want to do the work to improve themselves.
