Is working with a personal trainer right for me?

Visiting the gym with a personal trainer can help you to reach your fitness goals safely and efficiently. PTs can provide you with useful tips and information across a range of topics, including workout plans, nutrition and gym safety.

Personal training is also a great option for beginners or people who are new to the gym. One of the best things about personal training is that you don’t have to be fit or regularly active before you get started.

Your PT will create a bespoke training plan that suits you, whatever your previous gym experience.

Apart from this, whether working with a personal trainer is the right option for you depends on a few factors like:

  • Your lifestyle - Personal training sessions are most effective when you can commit to a set programme with your trainer, meeting regularly and developing a consistent fitness plan together. This can be tricky if you have a busy lifestyle or work irregular hours. Luckily most PTs will have some flexibility, it might just take some time to find one that fits with your schedule.

  • Your budget - PT sessions can be expensive, so you’ll need to consider if you’ve got room in your budget to start with a personal trainer. If you can’t make the financial commitment right now, gym inductions are a great, free way to get started in the gym. Led by our qualified fitness instructors, you’ll find out how the equipment works and get an idea of what it might be like to train with someone in the gym. If you like gym workouts and have room in your budget, you can then start working with a personal trainer to build on what you’ve learnt and get more tailored advice that aligns with your goals.

  • Your goals - Speaking of goals, deciding what you’d like to achieve will help you work out if PT sessions are right for you. If you’re just looking for guidance on form, our friendly gym staff and fitness instructors can show you how to use the equipment properly and safely during your induction session. But, if you’ve got specific aims in mind like weight loss or strength training, a personal trainer can help you build a plan and work towards these objectives.

At Better, we work with accredited PTs with a range of expertise, so you can be sure you’re getting high-quality and informed fitness advice whatever your goals. 


Still not sure it’s right for you? There’s a wide range of benefits that come with personal training. Here are just a few you can enjoy from PT sessions with Better:


Going to the gym with a personal trainer by your side can provide the encouragement, energy and motivation you need to take your workouts to the next level. Their expert advice can help you to set achievable goals and create a realistic plan to accomplish them.


For those that struggle to stick to a fitness routine, a personal trainer can help you overcome any challenges holding you back – plus it’s a lot harder to avoid a workout if you know your instructor is ready and waiting for you.

Maximised Results

Helping you make the most of your time in the gym, a personal trainer can enhance your workouts to ensure you’re training in the most effective way to meet your goals - perfect for those with busy schedules.


If you tend to fall into the same workout habits and often grow bored with your standard routines, a personal trainer can put the excitement back into your gym sessions.


Are you interested in staying fit, but feel like you lack an understanding about exercise, nutrition and how to use the equipment in the gym? Personal trainers are qualified to provide you with everything you need to know to workout with confidence.
