Private vs. Semi-Private Personal Training: A Comparative Guide

benefits of private personal training
At Fitness By Design, our mission is to help you achieve your personal fitness goals.  For many, personal training offers the individual attention and custom workout plans they need to succeed in their quest for improved fitness, even helping them achieve fitness milestones they long considered beyond their reach. Choosing to start personal training is one of the most beneficial things you can do to get fit and protect your long-term health.

Our team at Fitness By Design understands that seeking out a personal trainer can be a daunting experience, especially if you don’t know what to expect. To help you decide whether personal training is right for you, we’ve prepared this brief overview of the two most popular formats it can take.

  • Private Personal Training- As its name suggests, private personal training takes place between a trainer and just one client. In private training, you receive 100 percent of your trainer’s attention during your sessions. The freedom from distractions means not only that your trainer will be able to devote more attention to coaching you and observing your progress, but also that you will be able to focus more on your form and performance. Your trainer’s more detailed observations will also allow them to better tailor your fitness plan to meet your specific goals and needs. While the one-on-one nature of private personal training does make it the more expensive of the two options outlined here, many find the results to be well worth the extra cost.
  • Semi-Private Personal Training- For those looking for the individualized benefits of private personal training but find the cost prohibitive, or find working out one-on-one intimidating, semi-private personal training offers a solution. In semi-private training, a trainer will work with a small group of clients–you’ll have friends around you to support you in your fitness goals, but won’t have to share your trainer’s attention with 29 other people the way you would in a large class.

If you are ready to get started with semi-private or private personal training, or if you still have questions about which method is best for you, give us a call at Fitness By Design to find out more.
