How Much will it Cost?

The type of course will likely offer you training in first aid as well as the basic level of fitness training courses necessary for gaining entry level certification into the industry.

It will also cost money to ensure that your qualifications are kept up to date with industry standards. You may be interested in gaining specialized training and certification in different areas of the personal training industry.

Each additional course can cost several hundred pounds although you will not need to pay for these immediately upon taking your first certification in the personal training industry. Depending upon what you want to achieve with your certification will allow you to make the decision of how much you want to invest in your personal training program.

Are there Other Ways to Pay?

You may also be able to pay your training fees in installment plans to the institution that you are taking your courses through. If you are eligible for an apprenticeship program you may be able to save yourself money as some of these programs are government funded.  You can find information on these types of programs by doing a search on the internet.

These programs may be offered by distance learning or as an in class type of study program. The in class programs are generally more expensive than the distance programs. You will usually find that by studying in class you will be able to finish the course faster and gain employment sooner.

Programs that offer hands on experience and training are the most effective way to learn, but they are not the only way to learn. Some people will learn better in an interactive environment and others will learn just as well as an individual who is studying on their own.

Below is an example of what it costs to be a personal trainer in the UK. The price that includes training with the use of the gym is more expensive (than if the training is not conducted in the gym) in this particular cost and training scenario.
