Truth be told, I believe everyone can afford a Personal Trainer. I have come to this realisation over the last 10 years while changing people’s lives. I have personal trained executives, stay at home mum’s, corporate career women, estate agents, CEO’s…if there was a need, people would find a way. I know I did. When I was striving to solve my back pain, I decided it was time for me to hire a personal trainer too. Then again, then this year, after hip surgery, I hired one of my team. I needed an expert to keep me on track and to make sure I was not skipping on form and painful rehabilitation sessions.

The relationship between accountability and success is irrefutable. Virtually all highly successful people embrace a high degree of accountability. It gives them the leverage they need to take action and create results.

Make Savings in other areas for your new body.

Your health is the most important part of your life. Make sure you have got your priorities right.

If you don’t look after the body you’ve got, where are you going to live?

Think about what is more important. The right body, and education to learn the best training and nutrition for your body, or getting your nails done again this week? The savings can add up. Take-out food goes against your health and fitness goals anyway so why bother? Are there any other habits you can sacrifice to help you save toward your very own personal trainer? Alcohol is another huge saving and goes against your health and fitness goals. I cant begin to explain the positive effect cutting alcohol will have on your life in addition to the monetary savings. Take a look at the list of most harmful drugs

Cut out take aways, alcohol and beauty treats and you will have money left over, after your investment to get into the best shape of your life.

Start small

You can begin with 45 min sessions 2 – 3 times per week over 90 days. In 90 days you will surely know if the personal trainer is a good one or not. You should have seen some type of transformation. Loose clothes, a lower number on the scale, more energy, greater stamina and a desire to live healthier. This will cost you about £330 per month for 3 months.

Finance your personal training.

This is where you would take your overall amount like £1,500 for a 3 month period and finance it over 6 – 12 months. Your payments can be as low as £130/month. I know of plenty of gyms that are now charging £150/month for large boot camp or group training where as you could get 1 on 1 instruction for the same price.

Ask family and friends for personal training Christmas and birthday presents. You can even create a gift list. Quality Personal Training studios will have gift vouchers available.

Generate referrals.

Podfit’s best marketing efforts and energy always come from satisfied clients or patrons. In fact, with our business we offer our clients a reduced session rate and free sessions if they refer a new paying client to us. If you like the service, why not tell people about it and save money? Take advantage of Referrals Month. Get double rewards and if you refer us 5 paying clients we will give you your personal training for FREE.

Train with a partner.

Training with a partner makes Personal Training even more affordable and it adds some extra accountability and its a lot of fun.

Have you ever tried a personal trainer?

If you have, have you had an award winning personal trainer, who makes your goals, their goals and makes sure they add layer upon layer of accountability, mindset motivation and education so that when you leave, you have not only achieved your fitness goals, you have been educated to keep doing it on your own, or your money back, guaranteed?

This is the ultimate accountability. So right now, change your mindset from “how could I ever afford a personal trainer?” to:

What is changing your body worth to you?

And what has it already cost you?

A new gym membership that you didn’t make use of, Weight loss clinics, Local boot camps, Pre-prepared food to your door, DVD workout program, Slimming belt Liposuction, Measuring food on a scale, Weight loss supplements, The latest fitness app, Invasive surgery?

It was worth whatever you paid above, wasn’t it?

Think about the knowledge you learn in terms of exercise form, technique and program design. Of course you learn a lot about food too. Is paying for personalised knowledge worth money? Of course it is.

After all, what’s the alternative?

“If you don’t change the direction you are going, then you’re likely to end up where you’re heading…”

The bottom line–when you spend your money try asking yourself:

” How is this item or service going to benefit me now and in the future”?
