Frequently Asked Questions

If you’re looking for an experienced and knowledgeable personal trainer in Brisbane, don’t forget to check out Athletix. They have one of the best fitness coaches in Australia to help you exercise effectively and avoid the chances of injuries.

On average, a university qualified personal trainer in Brisbane costs around $100 per session. You can also save some money by splitting the cost of a session with a family member or a friend. It is essential to remember that the charges of every class are different, depending on needs and programming.

Personal training is a great way to revitalise your health, build your workout knowledge, and achieve your goals faster. It is a worthwhile investment in yourself to charge up your motivation.

 

Here are a few critical reasons to try out personal training at least one in your life:

  1.  A coach might guide you through the ropes and pulls to build your knowledge and confidence if you’re new to workout.
  2.  A good training program offers personalised plans to maintain your health and reduce the chances of injuries.
  3.  Booking for PT in advance motivates you to show up every week and feel accountable.
  4.  A good PT encourages you to achieve more than your expectations without forcing you to the point of pain.

If you’ve decided to get in shape and live a healthier lifestyle, it is vital to find a personal health coach ASAP. However, how frequently you see your coach depends on your fitness/performance goals. If you haven’t worked out in a long time, you might need to see your trainer two to three times a week.

On the other hand, if you go to the gym regularly but don’t find it beneficial, adding as little as one weekly session can enhance results, motivation and be “the cherry on the cake”.  If you’re an athletic type, your trainer might give you one session per week to help you manage your workload and avoid overuse injuries.

The average cost of personal training varies in every country, depending on the coach’s availability, experience, credentials, and reputation. 

Our elite Coaches’ privates start from as little as $90 per session and, depending on the difficulty of the aim, they also charge for programming (which requires research and time).

The work on direct debit or 10 session packs. In some cases you can use your private health for rebates.

If you want to make sure that your workouts are effective, look for these attributes in a Coach
1. Education (Bachelors in Exercise Science, High Performance Sports, Human Movement…)

2. Accreditations: Being accredited with the ESSA (exercise sport science association) or ASCA(Australian strength and conditioning association), generally guarantees the coaches have been assessed and must update their knowledge regularly.
3. Charges
It is crucial to consider the hourly rate of a personal instructor depending on their certifications, experience, specialty, and location.
4. Reputation
It is best to find a trainer through referral. A knowledgeable and successful trainer will be happy to share their success stories, testimonials, and references.

All trainers at Athletix Gym are certified and upskilled.

If you’re looking for a high level coach in Brisbane, you can always turn to Athletix as our Coaches have:

  • Bachelors/Masters in Sports Science, Exercise Physiology, and alike
  • Accredited with ASCA and ESSA.
  • Highly experienced with Youth and Adults, Recreational and professional athletes, rehab and return to play.

Whether you want to lose weight, get in shape, increase stamina, or simply feel that additional accountability will benefit you, hiring a personal trainer can be a great resource to you. Here are a few services to expect from a personal trainer:

  1.  Help you figure out whether your fitness goals are realistic.
    2.  Teach you how to practice a particular exercise properly.
    3.  Suggest activities and exercises according to your body.
    4.  Hold you accountable for your goals by keeping a regular check.
    5.  Push you a little harder to make sure you don’t slack off.
    6.  Evaluate your current program and suggest ways to tweak it.

No they do not.

Our S&C Coaches look after you from a training standpoint.

When it comes to diet, we use accredited Dietitians who can support you with the best practice and up-to-date knowledge to suit your own very personal needs.

Hiring a personal trainer can be a difficult task but offers numerous benefits. Here are four tips to consider when hiring a coach in Brisbane for reaching your fitness goal:

  1.  Find a trainer who can assess your needs and create a plan that pushes your physical strength.
    2.  A trainer who can not only tell you what to do, but also explain why supported by evidence.
    3.  A personal trainer should be knowledgeable in various types of exercises and styles.
    4.  A health coach must have experience in cooperating with other health professionals (Physio, GP, Sports Physicians)

Creating a GOOD training plan takes time, research and consideration.

At Athletix we pride ourselves for being very hands on with our programs.

When paying your Coach for sessions you are also paying for the time that is required to adjust your plans, assess your progresses and research for the best evidence-based practice. 

The cost is NOT just for the time spent face to face.
