How a typical gym based personal training experience goes.
Personal training in a gym can be a great experience - don't get me wrong. However, the average length of a personal training client using services in a gym is under 6 months. During that six months, the client learns how to use all the equipment in the gym effectively. He or she might lose weight and build strength.
However, what happens once that relationship ends? If the client leaves the gym, or the trainer leaves the gym (this happens A LOT as many gyms don't pay a fair wage) the client suddenly feels lost. If the client has left the gym, he or she may not know how to work out effectively at home or outside. If the trainer has left the gym, there is always that danger that the client thinks "I can't do it without my favorite trainer."
The gym can be a great short term solution, but it's rarely a good long term solution for the average client looking to retain a personal trainer's services for the long haul. At the gym, there is usually incentive to book several sessions per week, but rates skyrocket once the client no longer needs that frequency.
At Home Bodies, we have two simple rates - a pay-as-you-go and a one-month prepay rate. If you see us once a month or five times a week, you still enjoy the benefit of the pre-pay rate if you choose, but you never have to sign up for longer than one month at a time. The freedom and flexiblity are unmatched! After experiencing working with us, you'll never ask the question, "Why hire a trainer?" again, because the answer will be crystal clear!
