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 personal trainer in Brisbane costs as little as $25 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.

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 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, visit your two times a week if you go to the gym regularly but don’t find it beneficial. If you’re an athletic type, your trainer might give you one session per week to help you achieve a balanced physique while lessening the risks of sports-related injuries.

The average cost of personal training varies in every country, depending on the coach’s availability, experience, credentials, and reputation. On average, you can find a fitness instructor charging between 25$-50$ for a 30-minute session and 40$-70$ for an hour session.

If you decide to sign up for a month, it might help you save some bucks. Moreover, if the gym does not have any luxury amenities, it will cost you less. You can also save money by booking a trainer in packages of 5,10, 20 sessions. The more you book in advance, the more you’ll save!

If you want to make sure that your workouts are effective, look for these attributes in a personal trainer:
1. Credentials
A person must obtain one of these certifications to become a health coach: NCSA, ACE, or NASM.
2. Experience
An experienced coach should have perfected the moves to help you get the most out of every rep.
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 trainer in Brisbane, you can always turn to Athletix as their instructors are certified. They are educated in basic exercises, science, fitness assessments, nutrition practices, human movement science, speed, agility, client interaction, and professional development.

You can always find a certified health coach in reputable gyms with the following certifications:
1.  International Sports Sciences Association (ISSA)
2.  National Council on Strength & Fitness (NCSF)
3.  American Council on Exercise (ACE)
4.  National Academy of Sports Medicine (NASM)

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.

As fitness and nutrition go hand-in-hand, trainers are often expected to write meal plans for their clients to boost their performance, lose weight, deal with chronic health issues, and lower potential health risks. Besides, they must know the latest diet trends and learn how they align with your training regime as many people require specific food plans.

However, it’s against the law to offer diet and nutrition suggestions in many states unless you have a certification. Obtaining nutrition-specific certification allows a trainer to provide their insights legally and even expand the scope of their training business.

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 institute a plan that pushes your physical strength.
    2.  A trainer who gives clear instructions feedback, and builds a strong relationship with the clients, while making them feel safe is suitable.
    3.  A personal trainer should be knowledgeable in various types of exercises and styles.
    4.  A health coach must have experience with different medical conditions you might have.
