Personal Training

When it comes to the number of trainers you have and the quantity of sessions they conduct, how does your facility stack up to others?

Since 88% of the businesses included in the 2005 IDEA Fitness Programs & Equipment Survey offer personal training, it’s no surprise that trainers appear in virtually all facilities. Personal training businesses have the highest volume of sessions, running neck and neck with health clubs.

A few trainers conduct most of the sessions, particularly in personal training businesses. The 2004 IDEA Fitness Industry Salary Survey showed that trainers who are paid by the hour work an average of 18 hours per week.

The data in the tables are from the 2005 IDEA Fitness Programs & Equipment Survey, conducted in March and April of 2005. There were 264 business and program director members represented, with responses provided by 38% owners, 19% fitness directors and 14% group fitness directors/coordinators.
