    on average how much do personal trainers make??

    thinking about doing some courses, but wanted to know how much they make on average?
    fcuk pain, train insane, or be the same.

    compliments kill a bodybuilder, criticism makes one.
    reps given were reps due. and yes i do rep back.

    short term goal: compete and win in my weight at the state comp.

    mid term goal: compete and win in my weight at the state comp and take the overall title.

    mid term goal: compete at the north indian nationals and win the overall.

    long and final term goal: compete at the national and win the Mr. India title.

    It all depends.

    Low end commercial gyms (24 Hr Fitness, Ballys, Golds etc) pay anywhere from $7-$20/hour.

    High end commercial gyms (Equinox, etc) almost double that.

    Independent trainers make whatever they choose to charge.

    If you decide go independent, but if your just starting out 24/golds/ballys is a good choice to get your feet wet, and learn the basics. they make around 12-18 an hour i would guess.

    But nothing even comes close to independent.

    It really depends on what you are looking for. If going to make it a full time job in a commercial gym or studio, your pay will be less, but you are garunteed to get a good number of sessions each week. I work at a Fitness Together, make $20 an hour, and work anywhere from 25-40 sessions each week.
    If you were to go out on your own or try this as a part time job, you will make far more per hour, a rough average from what I've seen being around $35-$40 an hour, but don't expect to make a killing right away. With this method, you really have to establish a name for yourself, and let word-of-mouth from your clients to those they know to get you a wider base of clients.

    It all depends on your location, and if you plan on working for yourself-or an established business.

    Generally, with a bit a knowledge and experience, you can personal train and make anywhere between $25 - $200 an hour.

    It all depends on your clients, how much they make, are you training people in Hollywood, or a Detroit-trailer park... You see what I'm saying?

    There's a lot of variables to consider when estimating a price...

    But over-all, yes... Personal trainers CAN make good money, if training for yourself, in a good wealthy location.

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics..

    Median annual earnings of fitness trainers and aerobics instructors in May 2006 were $25,910. The middle 50 percent earned between $18,010 and $41,040. The bottom 10 percent earned less than $14,880, while the top 10 percent earned $56,750 or more. These figures do not include the earnings of the self-employed. Earnings of successful self-employed personal trainers can be much higher. Median annual earnings in the industries employing the largest numbers of fitness workers in 2006 were as follows:

    General medical and surgical hospitals $29,640
    Local government 27,720
    Fitness and recreational sports centers 27,200
    Other schools and instruction 22,770
    Civic and social organizations 22,630

    Because many fitness workers work part time, they often do not receive benefits such as health insurance or retirement plans from their employers. They are able to use fitness facilities at no cost, however.


    Jobs for fitness workers are expected to increase much faster than the average for all occupations. Fitness workers should have good opportunities due to rapid job growth in health clubs, fitness facilities, and other settings where fitness workers are concentrated.

    Great income if you work for yourself,,f---k sitting behind a desk or working for someone else..But you have to be confident in your skills and know how to hustle a bit,,and be good with people,,then you will have a waiting list..I have been on my own now for two years and now have people waiting..Great move on my part to go on my own..

    The entry level for trainers at the gym I go to is about 59 bucks an hour but the gym can take up to 60%. still 25 bucks isn't bad. but the more certifications you have or a degree it can get up to 125 an hour with the gym taking maybe only half.

    The key is you have to be indepenent to make good money in fitness. The clubs take too much of what the client pays. My income didn't really get up there until I found this ebook called Wealthy Trainer. You can buy it through Lulu.com or you can find it if you Google "Wealthy Trainer". The author's name is John Clements.

    I make REALLY good money now. More than I thought I ever would in this industry.

    I made $15/hour gross at a commercial gym.

    I make $65/hour cash as an independent trainer.

    Choose wisely.

    I know a few club managers of large gyms in populous areas and they make well over 6 figures, but I wouldn't do their jobs for millions...

    According to this article

    http://jobs.aol.com/articles/photos/...-jobs/1434435/

    The average personal trainer makes $13.05 per hour.

    You could look at this figure many ways, the way I look at it is, if that's the case, there are A LOT of crappy trainers out there!

    Working at a gym can be a good start to get your feet wet, but you made a good point about going independent. I think you should train independently as soon as possible. This gets you in the habit or being on your own and forces you to learn business while you learning about training.
    I like to make money while I work out - how about you?

    When you go independent, where do you train your clients?

    i am currently independent, i make 35-60 per session, but im lucky to get 3 or 4 clients a day. thats a good month. sometimes you lose all of your clients at once. and you're broke. its a risky move but you can do well and have lots of free time. i would advise keeping a part time job until you build a client base. goodluck!

    Commercial isn't bad

    I work both at a corporate gym and independent. At the gym, I make between $25-55/hour. (55% of single session price). Independent, I charge $85/hour usually training at clients gym in apartment.

    I work 5 days a week, minimum 5 sessions a day at Gym + 4 independent sessions a day. Its awesome because the money is great (independent is cash), you make your own schedule (I work late afternoon to late evenings, wake up whenever I feel, NO ALARM!!), & helping the quality of living in others.

    I guess I live in a good area!

    i've been training for about a year...i never trained in the commercial gym cause they wanted me to sign a non-compete and i refused...

    i started out doing hour long sessions in my apartment gym and girlfriends apartment gym charging $25 per hour and having people signup for 5 sessions at a time. Still working two part time jobs at the time.

    I then moved to a private studio where I made 40% then 50% then when i got up to 60% they tried to cheat me out of money so i left. In a 30 minute session I was making like $15-$17 so a little over $30 per hour. Once they screwed me after being there about 4 months I went independent and rented out space from a nearby gym and was able to run my own business. I charge roughly $30 for a 30 minute session depending on the package they choose and have them pay a month in advance. So anywhere between $55-$70 per hour and not even attempting to do groups (altho I could and make more money). Overhead was $200-$500 to rent for a few months.

    Now i'm looking into getting my own place, all this happening in about a year which i think is pretty awesome accomplishment if i do say so myself. The overhead will be a little higher but i'll start doing groups and a boot camp or too for additional income. I also have room to lease out space to other trainers and an extra room for massage, chiro, etc..So i'll have people paying to work under me in less than a year if this place i'm looking at comes through.

    Part of it is luck and opportunity in your area, but part of it is getting on the phone and calling a ton of people and making stuff happen. Fitness industry is professionally a VERY VERY selfish industry so far in my experience....everyone looks out for themselves with little regard to others (which is understandable to some extent). You'll get your money if you make stuff happen but don't expect handouts. If you plan on working in Bally's your whole life then its probably not a good idea.
