When do I need a Personal Trainer?

When you are overweight, when you are underweight, when you are unfit, when you want to get fitter, when you have just had a baby, when you are in training, when you are bored with training, when the kids have left home, when the jeans don't fit, when you are too busy to keep fit, when you are going skiing, when Christmas has happened, when summer is about to happen, when aerobics has got boring, when you can't avoid the mirror, when you always avoid the scales, when you want to!

How often should I train?

Three times each week should be sufficient for you to start feeling and seeing results. Although, like anything, you will get more out of it if you put more in. Whether you work out with your Trainer every time is up to you, and how motivated you are, how often you can afford to train, what you schedule is like every week.

Whats the typical cost of a Personal Trainer?

Unfortunately there is no typical cost, although the range is between £25 and £100 per hour dependent on your location, time for training and their experience and client list. If you spend £500 a year on gym fees and use the facility once or twice, with no results as a consequence, that is expensive.

Our prices start at £22.50 for 45 mins.

Can I set the time I work out?

You are the client and so should be able to train when you want. However, do remember that trainers will have existing clients and so your first choice may not be available so it's best to be flexible.  


If you're changing your training time, always give at least 24 hours notice - otherwise you'll be charged.

At New Beginnings you can book your sessions online using our booking system.

Where does a Personal Trainer train clients?

This will depend on where you've agreed your sessions will be. Trainers may come to your home or office or you may use the local park, swimming pool or be out on a bike.  Although New Beginning's does have it's very own Private Personal Fitness Studio.

What happens during a Personal Training Session?

A personal training session will normally last for 45mins. This will follow along the lines of a brief warm-up followed by your main training programme where you will focus on your goals using cardiovascular, strength or flexibility exercises. Finally there will be a cool down or relaxation period. Any programme may vary from one session to the next according to the clients' needs and progress.

Does a Personal Trainer ask questions about your lifestyle?

The nature of personal training is such that it incorporates your needs, goals and preferences. During your consultation we will need to ask some initial questions, which probe the demands that are placed on you from your job or lifestyle such as:

  • Basic personal details

  • Medical background

  • Fitness background

  • Lifestyle factors (e.g. smoking or drinking)

  • Nutritional habits (you may be asked to keep a diary)

  • Personal goals and objectives in relation to fitness

So as you can see we look at more then just the fitness or exercise component of your life. We also provide information and advice about nutrition, stress management, motivational techniques and then be able to refer you on to others where the need may arise (Chiropractics or Massage say.)

Is it worth investing in a Personal Trainer?

Every person's fitness journey is specific to them – what works for somebody else might not be right for you. Therefore, the benefit of having tailored advice, motivational training and the chance to gain specific knowledge, both in the gym and with your eating, can make all the difference.
