Personal training fees range from $25 to $125 per session, depending on which trainer is selected, the location of the workouts, and whether you book a 30 or 60-minute session. We do not require any packages or contracts — you may pay as you go. The optional online nutrition coaching service comes at a small addition cost, but we give a big discount to our personal training clients if you’d like to add it. P.S. You should!

No, we have special arrangements with the facilities that we utilize so our customers do not have to purchase gym memberships. No contracts, no packages, nothing to “sign up” for.
