Personal Training Edinburgh Made Easy - Step by Step Guide
1. Decide on your goals
"I would be happiest with my training when I have achieved what?” Is the best question to ask yourself to find out what your ultimate goal is. In fact its the first question I ask during your free consultation.
2. Once you have decided on your goal look for a specialist in that field.
If you have a long term goal of losing weight and you have diabetes search for personal trainers that advertise these specific issues. On www.gradybpt.com I advertise being a weight loss and toning specialist and have a REPS level 4 qualification in Obesity and Diabetes. Other personal trainers that advertise 100 different services are not focussed, get slower results but are usually cheaper.
3. Contact personal trainers that fit your goals and needs.
Ask us questions about your goals, qualifications, and experience. A good trainer will be more than happy to answer your questions about your goals and how they could help you.
4. Ask about price.
The average price for personal training in Edinburgh is around the £30 mark with the top end at around £45 - £50. Places that are at the top end charge this price because the the company charges the trainer you are placed with a percentage of around 60%. If you contact one of these top end companies you may not even interact once with the specialist person whose name is above the door or on the website. At Grady B PT all sessions are with myself and with my expertise.
5. Book in for your first session.
If all of your questions have been answered and you like the look of a personal trainer and their location get booked in. I have a welcome email and pack giving directions and a FAQ about what clothes to wear and what your first session will involve. I even have a free (returnable deposit), in person consultation so you can come and check out the location and meet me to see if its what you wanted from your PT. If a PT doesn’t offer a free or returnable deposit consultation don’t pay up front especially for a large package of sessions.
