    How much would a personal trainer and/or nutritionist cost?

    I do realize they probably vary a lot in price range, but what would be a good, somewhat average price for one?

    It depends on their level of experience and whether you what a good trainer or not. Also, an independent trainer may costs differently from a trainer that works for a gym.

    I'd say an average independent trainer makes $50-$70/session, while those at a gym may be 75-90/session. Of course, you may end up paying a lot less for gym trainers if you buy in bulk (5, 10, 20, 50, 100 sessions at once, etc.)
    I can accept failure, everyone fails at something. But I can't accept not trying.
    I'm not out there sweating for three hours every day just to find out what it feels like to sweat.

    PT's are expensive. This is a luxury field.
    All real talk, all the time. 100% of my posts have the (srs) tag. I don't do BS and trolling.

    Bodybuilding has been advanced through anecdotal knowledge ("broscience"). Studies are over-rated. Experienced BB'ers understand training far better than scientists.

    I've always had the belief that if you want to be where somebody is, then do what they did...the real experts are the ones that are in the gym getting the job done. Those are the people that you need to listen to. – Dave Tate

    I believe the average price for personal training in Canada is around $50/hr. Obviously the cost matters but more importantly I would search for a good trainer. Ideally but not necessarily, someone with a degree/degrees in a related field, someone with good credentials and someone with experience. Obviously there are other attributes you would want to investigate when looking for a personal trainer.

    Just because some costs $200/hr doesn't mean he is better than someone charging $35/hr, saying that, I wouldn't just see a personal traininer because he charged $35/hr, a few dollars less than another individual (for example).

    I'd call your local gyms, rec centres and search craigslist and see what comes up and then compare their qualifications/experience to their price, determine how much you can afford and go from there.

    time for dollars, depends on who you hire

    Some trainers will scrap up any client just to make a buck, but quality is expensive. My 3 nutritionists who work for me charge 60 for 45 minutes, those are my rates but i live in the bay area.
