I offer a 1 free session with people to broaden my possible scope of clients. At the end usually the only problem is the price. Do you know if some health insurance companies cover Personal Trainers? I’m fairly certain the demand for PT’s would go up as a whole if people had the option to pay with their medical insurance.
No, insurance companies do not cover personal training. There are some organizations that may give a one time payment towards personal training. Here in Raleigh, a chapter of the MS Society will pay some money after they have approved a provider.
I believe that you are correct that the demand for personal training would go up by a lot but I am equally sure that our paperwork would do as well. Physical therapists have to put all kinds of punishment for missed sessions in their contracts because it is a real issue for them.
