Frequently Asked Questions
How much does a personal trainer in Brighton & Hove cost?
A personal trainer in Brighton & Hove generally costs between £15 and £50 per session, depending on the type and location of training, experience of the trainer, the amount of sessions bought in one go, and whether sessions come with any additional benefits such as nutritional guidance.
Do personal trainers give nutritional advice?
Yes, more often than not personal trainers give nutritional advice. A qualified personal trainer is required to study nutrition as part of their diploma. However, they may charge for this as an additional benefit on top of their training packages, so always check whether nutritional guidance is included before you agree to any costs.
How many times per week should I train to see results?
If you are new to fitness then you should train between 2 - 3 times per week to see results. However, it can take up to three months of consistent training for those results to be noticeable (such as a change in body composition), so patience is key!

Is personal training worth the money?
Whether personal training is worth the money is dependent on you and your goals. Do you have trouble motivating yourself to go to the gym? Have you stopped seeing results with your current training regime? Are you struggling to lose that last layer of belly fat?
What is the best way to lose fat?
The best way to lose fat is to have your nutrition in check. To put it simply: you need to burn more calories than you consume. A training programme can aid this as it increases the amount of calories that you are allowed to eat on a daily basis, and helps to build muscle and improve body composition.
Does a personal trainer need to be certified?
A personal trainer needs to be certified in order to be elligible to join an industry recognised organisation such as REPs (Register of Exercise Professionals) or NRPT (National Register of Personal Trainers). These organisations provide personal trainers with insurance, which is a requirement for all personal trainers working in gyms across the UK.
How do I get a flat stomach?
Nutrition is key if your goal is to have a flat stomach. Contrary to popular belief, doing hundreds of sit-ups everyday will not lead to a flatter stomach. We all have abs - you just need to lose the layer of fat on top of them to see them!
