How much can I earn as a Personal Trainer?

July 19, 2019

The fitness industry can be a rewarding one to work, offering a variety of career choices as you further your knowledge and become more accomplished. Working as a personal trainer is challenging both physically and psychologically requiring a lot of effort to ensure others achieve their personal goals.

How much do Personal Trainers earn?

Depending on how much you charge and the number of hours you work, you could earn anything between £25,000 and £60,000 per annum. Personal trainers usually charge by the hour, ranging from anywhere between £25 and £50, with some top trainers charging towards £100! The price you charge will depend on a number of factors highlighted below…


The more knowledge and qualifications you gain, the better the chance of building an excellent reputation and being successful.


The more experience you gain as a personal trainer, the more your knowledge develops. This is certainly the case if you have taken the time to keep yourself up to date with current scientific research and cutting edge training methods and interventions. You will also be in a better position to understand what works for each client and become highly proficient at problems solving on the gym floor.


The demand for personal training can depend on where you live and what type of gym you work in. In some Cities and gyms, it can be easy to build a large client base and in others, it is more difficult. The location you work from also plays a role in how much you will be paid. Cities such as London tend to be more costly for PT services whereas, in smaller towns, it may be a little cheaper.

Type of services offered

What services do you plan to offer? If you are a highly qualified personal trainer that specialises in a popular niche, you should expect to be paid a higher salary than usual. If you choose a one-on-one service, your clients will be paying more for this extra attention. As for group sessions, you will likely need to charge less, something that may affect your overall pay. However, if you train a large enough group of people, you may end up making more money.

At the end of the day…

It can be hard to determine just what you could be earning as a personal trainer. There are quite a few things to factor in before you can even estimate what you could be earning. However, you can’t earn more if you don’t have enough qualifications. With a range of courses from Fit2Train, you can provide your clients with a valuable service.
