# How do you price personal training for two?

I have a married couple who would like to start training together (even though they are at very different fitness levels). I typically only do group session or 1:1 personal training. Is the standard to let both train for one session cost or to just offer a discount per person rate?

Hello Kathy,

I only train one-on-one. I don't think there is a "standard" on fees charged for training two people at a time. Rates would be based on your demographics, competitors and other PT's in you facility.

Hi Kathy,

For doubles my rate is 55% over the rate I charge for singles. Of course it's up to you how much you want to make when training couples. I hope this helps.

I typically charge less per person, but a higher rate per hour to account for the work involved. Depending on how you structure your services, you will be doing an assessment, going over nutrition logs, and planning workouts for two people.

Kathy,

I have always let couples train together at my one-on-one rate, but most trainers will charge extra for doubles. In my area, this tends to be 15-30% more per session. I keep my rate the same because each person will only receive half of my attention and the workout will generally become less personalized.

When I train couples with very different fitness levels who still want to come in together, I check if they are interested in splitting up the hour and work with each of them alone for 30 minutes.

I charge 1.5 times my rate for semi-private training. For example rate for 1:1 is $60 /hr then rate for 2:1 is $90/hr or $45 per person. That said I don't sell a lot of semi-privates and my small group and private training are much more popular.

Hi Kathy. I do a lot of partner and small group training, and as most here have said, charge a percentage of your normal individual training fee as your additional amount for the second person. The actual percentage you charge is, of course, up to you, so consider what your market will bear; the extra work it takes to train two; and how much you need to make to make this worth your while.

I hope that this helps.

I too structure my fee for partner or small group training at 1.5% of my individual training fee.

I work in a larger facility that determines what I charge; however we charge 25.00 per person. A typical session is 45.00-55.00 so each person is paying half roughly. My gym does require that both be there to train or the one inidividual will pay the full price (unless canceled).

My personal trainer does training from his home and he does pretty close to the same. He takes his session price and charges that regardless if it is one or two. So if my boyfriend and I train together we split the cost.

At my old gym where I determined the price - an hour session for one was 40.00, I went up to 50.00 for the two. Simply because a little more prep goes into the workout.

Just a few ways I have seen it done in my area.
