Personal Trainer Salary Explained

Average Personal Trainer Salary

For anybody who is truly passionate about fitness, being able to turn that passion into a career and earn a healthy personal trainer salary might seem like a dream come true.

However, many people put off pursuing a career in the fitness industry because they fear that it is too late to start a new career, or too much of a risk to rely on the salary of a personal trainer.

If this sounds like you, then we get it! As a personal training course provider, we encounter plenty of people in this same predicament. That’s why we’ve put together this article, answering the all important question of ‘how much does a personal trainer earn?’.

Chapter 1: What is the average salary for a personal trainer in the UK?

Hourly wage for personal trainer graph

Whilst it's best not to place too much emphasis on averages (we’ll explain why very soon), there are a handful of reliable sources that can be helpful in providing a general idea of how much you can expect to earn as a personal trainer.

For example, as discussed in our article on the UK fitness instructor salary, the average Level 2 Fitness Instructor takes home around £17,000 a year.

You may be thinking that this figure is quite low, especially considering that the average full-time salary in the UK is £31,461. But, before you’re completely put off a career as a personal trainer, there are some factors that need to be considered. 

The first is that, to work as a fitness instructor, the only qualification you need is a Level 2 Gym Instructor course. Meanwhile, in order to become a personal trainer, you also need to complete a Level 3 Certificate in Personal Training

Because of this, and the fact that the role of fitness instructor is a lot more basic than that of a PT, a fitness instructors salary is less than the average salary of a fully qualified personal trainer.

A fitness instructor is in charge of running gym introductions, maintaining equipment, and offering basic advice to members. This reduced level of responsibility is reflected in their lower wage, which should be viewed as an entry level salary for those interested in a long-term career in the industry.

So, what about the salary of a personal trainer?

Personal trainer average salary uk

As any personal trainer will tell you, their role requires more expertise than a fitness instructor, and therefore, more qualifications, and a higher wage.

As we mentioned just above, personal trainers need to be at least Level 3 qualified. Having this higher level of qualification will allow you to work directly with clients, and as such, the average wage rises to £24.91 an hour.

Meanwhile, totaljobs report the average personal trainer annual salary as £27,000. 

Again, you may have a raised eyebrow about these figures, particularly if you’re considering moving from a full-time job into personal training, but don’t discard the idea just yet…

As you’ll find out later in this guide, an independent trainer is largely free to set their own prices. This means, depending on a variety of factors including client lists and location, earning that high end of the personal trainer salary is very much possible.

Plus, job sites such as PayScale and total jobs aren’t always the most reliable sources when it comes to accurate salaries, and so industry-wide averages aren’t necessarily the best approach to figuring out your future earnings - here’s why.

Turn your passion for Fitness into an exciting new career

1.1: Why you shouldn’t focus too much on the numbers…

Part of the confusion here is that the average figures for a level 3 personal trainer salary quoted above are not wrong. In fact, they are accurate…and yet, they don’t paint a full picture.

But why is this the case? Within PayScale’s research, for example, the lowest wage found was £17,000, whereas the highest was £84,000.

These differing figures are to be expected in an industry, such as the fitness industry, where a number of factors affect how much you can earn.

Perhaps, most significantly, is the fact that there isn’t one set route for personal trainers, as there is for, say, medical professionals. A personal trainer can be hired in a variety of contexts, and therefore there is no consistent personal trainer salary.

The career paths available to a personal trainer vary from being directly employed by a healthcare facility (therefore receiving a base salary), to freelancing at a club (having to recruit and maintain clients to earn money), and being completely independent, setting up their own business.

The lower end of the personal trainer annual salary on the likes of PayScale typically reflects the base salary of a personal trainer employed by a club.

The highest personal trainer salary found in our research will therefore apply to a successful, independent personal trainer, or a personal trainer freelancing in a club located in an affluent area.

With these career paths, there are more risks, but there’s also more to gain. For example, while you may have access to more clients as a freelancer in a club, you will have to pay the club rent to use their facilities. This can pass £10,000 a year in the higher-end clubs, and therefore will significantly reduce your yearly earnings.

What is the salary of a personal trainer

Another factor that the average salaries on sites such as Pay Scale fail to consider, is that there is no standard set of qualifications for a personal trainer. While it is true that you must have Level Two Gym Instructor and Level Three Personal Training qualifications, there are also numerous specialised CPD courses, and advanced Level Four Personal Training courses available.

Highly qualified trainers in specialist areas open more opportunities for themselves, and therefore, have a higher earning potential.

For example, a personal trainer with a Level 4 Advanced Nutrition qualification can offer additional services, such as tailored meal plans, and therefore, will be able to advertise themselves as an expert in this specific area of personal training and charge a higher hourly rate.

Check out this recent article to find out the answer to ‘Can personal trainers give nutrition advice?’.

In short, there are many factors that directly influence your wage as a personal trainer, so half the battle in effectively predicting your wage is knowing which of these factors affect you.

Chapter 2: How to boost your salary through further qualifications

average Salary for personal trainer uk

As we have just touched on, additional qualifications play a huge role in allowing you to gain access to certain career paths. So, before we tell you about traditional personal training career paths, let’s take a look at how gaining further qualifications can boost your salary.

Evidence would suggest that a Level 4 qualified personal trainer (often referred to as a ‘master’ personal trainer) does earn a higher average personal trainer salary per year than a Level 3 Personal trainer does. 

Let’s unpack that a little…  

To begin with, a Level 4 personal trainer must have completed a Level 2 Gym Instructing course and a Level 3 PT course. As such, they are highly qualified, and can work in the fitness industry, as well as healthcare or rehabilitation settings (depending on their level 4 qualification).

Generally, trainers who have completed a level four qualification have been in the industry longer, and therefore have larger client bases, and are more likely to earn increased salaries through freelance revenue.

Typically, the natural career progression is to build a client base and a good reputation, and then look to specialise in neighbouring fields. For example, by becoming an exercise referral specialist, a career path with a much broader salary range for a personal trainer.

However, it is also true that extra qualifications can directly open up opportunities at the beginning of your career. Plenty of people choose to purchase personal trainer course packages so that they have a competitive advantage when they start in the industry as a newly qualified PT.

For example, compared to just completing a Level 3 course, anybody who also completes OriGym’s Level 4 Nutrition course will have specialist knowledge of the principles of sport and exercise for athletes, the elderly, and special populations.

What's' more, a nutrition coach can offer specialist nutrition plans to suit clients individual exercise and sporting goals - something that the right client will be happy to pay more for.

For a full breakdown of all of the pros and cons of the various personal training career paths and how that can affect your salary, check out this OriGym video:

As we mentioned previously, researching the average salary for a personal trainer can be a helpful way to get a general idea of what you might earn.

But in order to get a more accurate idea of what the average wage of a personal trainer is, you need to research what payment structures gyms are actually offering. How does a level 3 personal trainer salary at Pure Gym differ from a David Lloyd personal trainer wage, for example?

While this may sound like a lot of work on your end, you shouldn’t worry. We’re here to help get you started…

If you’re still asking the question, how much do personal trainers make, check out our graphic below for figures from some of the biggest gyms in the UK and see what personal trainer salary structures they offer their personal trainers.

3.1: “But how do all these conflicting options help me? What security will I have on a personal trainer salary?”

If you’re already in an established career, security is probably something that you’re keen to learn more about in regards to the personal trainer starting salary.

To get a better understanding of the financial situation of a personal trainer, it’s better to ask ‘what can I earn?’, rather than ‘what will I earn?’. You are therefore going to need some background information with regard to the options available to you, and the current job market…

Afterall, there’s no use just asking “how much do personal trainers make?” without knowing the conditions of your working hours.

A part time personal trainer salary will obviously be lower than the salary of somebody who works 40+ hours a week, but this isn’t something that sites such as glassdoor take into account. 

Let’s start with the potential career paths of a personal trainer, and the pros and cons of each option.

graphic Average wage of a personal trainer

As you can see, there are some major pros and cons attributed to each personal training career path. 

On the whole, average earnings probably increase from left to right (with the rare exception of some freelancers in high-end clubs earning as much as successful independent trainers). However, it is also true that levels of risk increase left to right as well.

As we mentioned before, a general rule of thumb to go by is that being employed by a club is the safest option for newly qualified PTs. However, in order to maximise the success of your career, you should always be working towards freelance and independent work in the fitness sector.

Chapter 4: How to get more from your contracted, freelance, or independent fitness career

Annual salary for a personal trainer uk

With so many options available to newly qualified personal trainers, sometimes knowing the pros and cons of each career path isn’t enough.

Within any gym or fitness centre, there are many roles available, and equally, there are various kinds of prospective personal trainers, some of who are suited to entirely different roles with varying salaries. For example, the salary of a gym manager will naturally be more than that of a personal trainer.

Similarly, a self-employed personal trainer is naturally more than the average as freelance and independent trainers can branch out into a number of related fields, away from their traditional one-to-one sessions with clients.

Below, we’re going to discuss some of the most popular options for personal trainers working in each career path, and the salary expectations that come with each role.

4.1: The different roles available within a gym 

Given that a lot of gyms are offering their trainers permanent, full-time contracts, there are now a variety of different roles available for individuals who have a level two and level three personal training qualification.

Class Coordinator

Average salary for a certified personal trainer uk

Many personal trainers supplement their salaries by taking on permanent roles. One such role, popular with many personal trainers, is a class coordinator. This is a role that is available within organisations such as David Lloyd or Nuffield Health.

As a class Coordinator (also referred to as “Groups Exercise Coordinator”) your role will encompass ensuring every class within your gym runs smoothly whilst providing a high standard of experience for paying members. 

If you choose to pursue this kind of role, you will also host monthly classes, and manage member feedback in order to improve existing services. You must therefore be comfortable talking to customers and colleagues alike.

Here, more so than many other roles, you will need excellent organisational skills, as well as a wide knowledge of group fitness classes. Why not enquire about this group exercise instructor course to boost your chances of landing this kind of position.  

Fitness Manager (20K Basic Salary)

Average pay for personal trainer uk

A fitness manager will typically be responsible for the delivery of inductions, personal reviews, as well as a set amount of personal training hours.

It is the Fitness Manager’s role to ensure that branding is kept consistent across the entire gym or fitness organisation. A Fitness Manager is also responsible for supervising a team of personal trainers and fitness staff, providing regular feedback to that team. 

Like most fitness-related jobs, there is also a degree of face-to-face interaction with customers through personal training sessions, gym inductions, greeting members, and gathering feedback.

To be successful in this role, you have to be able to work well as part of a team and as a leader, and will be required to delegate responsibility between several personal trainers and fitness staff members.

Wellbeing Mentor (22K Basic Salary)

average personal trainer hourly pay uk

A wellbeing mentor will often be required to fulfil many duties within a gym or health and fitness centre. These include supervising the fitness floor and offering help and support with exercise programmes and techniques. 

A wellbeing mentor is required to be on hand to offer members advice with regard to maintaining a healthy lifestyle, meaning that they are required to have a thorough knowledge of nutrition as well as fitness training.

Different organisations have different job remits for their Wellbeing Mentors. For example, Nuffield Health asks their Wellbeing Mentors to take charge of their unique Health MOT program, which is a health assessment designed to enable members to work toward their goals.

Because individuals in this role work with members so closely, it's also essential that a wellbeing mentor is comfortable building relationships with a diverse range of people.

Why not check out our recent article to find out the top skills that personal trainers need.

4.2: Opportunities for diversification as freelance or independent PT

When many of us think of a personal trainer, our thoughts immediately turn to trainers who work in a gym or fitness centre.

There are, however, many more options available for freelance personal trainers and independent trainers, outside of these settings:

Home Personal Training

Average wage of a personal trainer uk

As we discussed in our recent article on the topic of personal trainers with disabilities, home training is often an option preferred by people who have disabilities, physical or mental, or people who generally feel intimidated by the atmosphere of a gym.

You can earn a healthy freelance personal trainer salary by becoming a home PT and charging a higher tariff as you are providing a more unique service (we’ll come on to average personal trainer rates in a minute…).

However, this role does come with its own difficulties. Because you are travelling between clients, you will only have access to a limited amount of equipment, so you have to be flexible with the kind of exercises programs that you set. 

As a home trainer, these may include more body-weight exercises, and use of portable equipment like kettlebells, medicine balls, and dumbbells.

You’ll have to factor in the time that you will spend travelling between clients, and above all, make sure that you get the right personal trainer insurance policy!

Freelance Training Outdoors

Average salary for a certified personal trainer uk image

For many personal trainers, this option is both lucrative and logical. This is especially true during the summer months or if you are able to work abroad as a personal trainer.

You must, however, ensure that you have obtained a licence from the council in order to run any outdoor classes. You must also make sure that your insurance covers you for outdoor sessions with clients. 

Generally, trainers hosting outdoor classes charge between £4 and £8 per session, or offer access to their classes for a monthly fee of around £35-£50.

Of course, the main advantage of outdoor training is the range of options it leaves open for trainers. You could start a fitness bootcamp business, offer military style-training, or organise park runs.

Set Up Your Own Studio Or Gym

Online personal trainer salary uk graphic

For those who are successful enough to afford this option, there are some huge benefits. Usually, when a personal trainer has built their reputation and personal trainer salary to a point where they can afford their own studio or gym, they also have a large client base.

This is the main contributing factor as to why personal trainers who own gyms often earn as much as £100,000 per year. 

Independent trainers can also rent their facilities out to freelance trainers, providing another revenue stream through the ground rent paid by trainers working from their gym.

Of course, the main disadvantage here is the initial spend on buying equipment, buying or renting a venue, as well as insurance costs for both.

If opening your own gym is a goal of yours, you’ll definitely want to read this personal trainer business checklist.

Class Instructor for Multiple Gyms

average wage of a personal trainer

A personal trainer does not have to be tied to one location, especially not if they are working as a freelancer. In fact, a popular way for freelance trainers to boost their personal training income is to work for a number of different gym chains.

This is particularly true of trainers who deliver group classes.

There are also many advantages to this method. A personal trainer can charge around £20-£25 per hour for each member attending their group class. Multiply this figure by large classes in four or five different gyms, and that personal trainer salary quickly grows.

Gym members from group classes are also ideal recruits for personal training clients. Check out this guide on how to recruit clients from the gym floor for more information on this.

The exact amount that you charge for a class really depends on the kind of class you run. For example, Yoga and Pilates tend to be more specialised in terms of training, and so classes are more expensive. Popular group classes hosted by personal trainers include:

  • Body Pump
  • Indoor Cycling 
  • Pilates
  • Body Combat
  • Legs, Bums, and Tums

One thing to note is that some clubs will require that you have specific qualifications to run certain classes. For example, an exercise to music course or the appropriate qualifications needed to become a spin instructor

Personal Training Online

Online personal trainer salary

Another option for experienced personal trainers to increase their earnings is to enter the lucrative world of online personal training.

Online personal training has become so popular because it relieves some of the intensity from face-to-face training. Personal trainers make great money when they have successful careers, but that does not diminish the long hours and personal sacrifices made in the name of the profession.

With online training, PTs can offer their services to a number of clients without having to physically be in a gym. This remote work allows PTs to take on more clients, and to increase their salaries without overloading their working schedule.

Perhaps the biggest advantage of online personal training is the potential to expand thanks to the fact that the client pool is no longer limited by location. 

While traditional personal trainers are tied to their immediate geographic location, online personal trainers can train clients from around the world. This means that their client lists and promotion tactics can expand to encompass a remit far beyond what they could achieve working in gyms and fitness centres.

Some services that are popular with online personal trainers include:

Nutrition & Exercise Plans: Although an online personal trainer doesn’t see their client face to face, the plans created for clients are still specific and highly individualised to the client’s needs. They tend to be goal oriented and engaging enough to keep the client’s motivation high while they are training in the absence of a physical trainer.

Online 1-2-1 Mentorship: Because the physical presence is removed from an online personal trainers client relationships, most online personal trainers offer round-the-clock email feedback, and weekly video calls with their clients. While this is still less work-intensive than, say, a 1 hour session with a client, it does provide the client with the reassurance that they are valued.

Of course, there are a host of new challenges and opportunities that come with becoming an online personal trainer. Perhaps most significant is that online PTs have to learn the ins and outs of online marketing.

Fortunately, there are tons of resources out there, such as this guide explaining how you can increase the traffic to your personal training website and convert those visitors into paying clients.

While we can’t cover the full suite of online marketing tools and techniques in this article, we can outline some of the major aspects that you’ll need to get right in order to provide further revenue for your business.

Namely, SEO (check out this amazing SEO guide by the guys over at Moz) which will help you to get your content on the first page of google, making your brand and services more visible, driving interested readers and fitness enthusiasts to your sales pages.

Some other useful articles for aspiring online PTs include:

4.3: Observations from the personal training job market (April 2021)

How much does a personal trainer make

OriGym conducted some research into the current job market and found that an increasing number of gyms offer “rent relief” deals to personal trainers. Gyms and leisure centres including Nuffield Health, Virgin Active, Anytime Fitness, and Pure Gym offer structures whereby personal trainers freelancing can reduce the amount of ground rent they pay. 

Rent relief options vary between clubs, but one common offer involves trading rent paid for hours on the gym floor.

We found that roughly a third (31.3%) of the jobs we researched offered a guaranteed base salary to personal trainers. This is indicative of a wider market shift towards personal trainers being hired full time, rather than taking up freelance contracts.

One reason for this could be the increasing popularity of fitness in the UK and the proliferation of 24 hour gyms, a recent study finding as many as one in every seven people in the UK being a permanent member of a gym.

A number of the job advertisements we encountered offered a salary estimate on an OTE basis. In most cases, a base salary was not stipulated, instead an estimate was offered (the most frequently quoted was 25,000-50,000 per annum).

Increasingly, we encountered gyms and fitness providers offering part-time hours on an hourly rate. Generally, these rates were between £20 and £35 per hour. Based on the job advertisements we found, part time work seemed to be aimed at already established trainers looking to supplement their earnings by running additional classes.

If part-time work is something that you feel would suit you well, find out how you can become a part-time personal trainer here.

Other trends we identified were providers offering a “competitive” annual or hourly personal trainer wage. This was particularly true of job advertisements for full time work with a base salary. This is where personal trainer salary averages, like those provided above by sites like PayScale, are useful. 

We found that base salaries and terms of employment also varied depending on factors like qualifications, experience, and existing clients (the latter particularly relevant for independent and smaller gyms). 

It is, however, important to remember how quickly the market shifts. We want to emphasise that trends may pass quickly, especially if the market grows or shrinks. A personal trainer salary may rise or fall depending on the strength of the market, among other factors.

Chapter 5: How to value your services and know how much to charge

How much does a pt earn

If you have decided that becoming a freelance or independent PT is the right career path for you, knowing how much you should charge clients for your services is really important.

Independent personal trainers do not have the luxury of exterior wage structures and the administrative backing of a large organisation, meaning they must work it out for themselves - which can be tricky.

One particularly important aspect for an independent trainer to think about is their pricing. Afterall, it’s not possible to figure out your personal trainer salary, if you don’t know how much you are going to charge your clients. 

Charge too little, and you’ll have to work around the clock to stay competitive and be successful. Charge too much, and your clients will defer to your cheaper competitors.

The best way to avoid finding yourself in either of these situations? Research your competition! 

For this kind of research, national averages are particularly unhelpful, especially as there is no one-size-fits-all pricing structure that applies in every area of the UK. Instead, specific local areas have their own average prices, and it’s up to you to research and decide how you’re going to compete with the existing market in your area.

To give a sense as to how important research is for independent trainers, we researched the price plans of working PTs in five major cities of the UK:

Personal trainer average salary uk graph

As you can see, the role that location plays in pricing for independent trainers is clear.

At an average of £92 per hour, the personal trainer salary in London (central) personal will naturally be higher as these trainers have the highest pricing plans by some distance. 

Despite the lowest hourly rate being £50, the fact that the average is closer to £100 indicates that, on the whole, central London trainers are earning around that three-figure mark for personal trainer salary per hour.

If we compare this to our lowest average, Cardiff, there are also some interesting results.

Despite being the lowest city for average rate per hour, Cardiff had the largest range in terms of pricing. The lowest hourly rate we found in our research was just £12, whereas the highest was more than triple that at £40 per session. 

From this, we can assume that clients paying £40 per session are getting a more specialised service. When we looked into this in further detail, it was clear that the prestige and qualifications of a trainer was the defining factor in pricing on a local level.

In many cases, prestige refers to “celebrity” trainers (the highest charging trainer from Liverpool, for example, boasting a client list of local premiership footballers, actors, and reality television stars).

Given that we have some average figures for independent trainers around the UK, we can also work out a personal trainer average salary for independent trainers in those cities.

OriGym co-founder Luke Hughes, an established personal trainer with a full client list will take up to around 30 hours worth of sessions per week, says that his schedule usually consists of around fifteen regular clients booking two sessions a week (these are of course, estimate figures).

Assuming that a personal trainer books 30 hours of sessions per week, and works 50 weeks per year, we can work out an estimated income based on the averages given above.

Hourly wage for personal trainer image

You might be reading this thinking, “Amazing! Look how much money I can make!”

Remember, these are overall earnings, based on the assumption that a personal trainer has an established industry presence, and is relatively successful in their field. We also have to consider what will be deducted from these figures, which, for an independent personal trainer, can amount to a substantial sum of money.

This may include, insurance costs, property rental, new equipment, and the price of further qualifications. What we want to demonstrate more than anything else is that you have to know your market in order to achieve success.

Research your pricing, and then find an angle that makes your service stand out above the rest.

Chapter 6: What makes a successful personal trainer, successful? How can I build client lists and warrant charging higher rates?

Average wage for a personal trainer uk

Whether you are a freelance personal trainer or entirely independent, you have to be able to market and sell your services.

To do this, you need to create a niche for yourself. A successful personal trainer has to be a master of marketing, as well as an expert when it comes to health and fitness. 

The best way to attract high-end customers and bump up your personal trainer salary is to market yourself as an expert. However, if you want to bump up your prices by advertising yourself as an expert, you will need to have the knowledge and qualifications to back up your claims. 

CPD courses (or, Continuous Professional Development courses) teach you additional skills that may not have been thoroughly covered in your Level 2 and Level 3 Personal Training qualifications. 

Here at OriGym, we teach a wide variety of CPD courses and, as all course providers should be, we are committed to furthering the knowledge of our students, even after they have graduated.

average Personal trainer salary uk

Popular, specialist CPD courses that will help push your career forwards include:

Kettlebells Courses - Industry-wide, kettlebell training is a popular CPD choice for personal trainers looking to vary their workout programs. A kettlebell CPD will teach you how to use dynamic movements to tailor kettlebell training to your client’s needs.

Circuits Fitness Courses - Circuits are another popular CPD course, particularly for PTs looking to venture into teaching group classes. A Circuits CPD course combines knowledge of the benefits of functional movements, with a variety of sport specific exercises that can be tailored to clients of all abilities.

Suspension Training Fitness Courses - Suspension training is growing in popularity across the UK, making it one of the rising stars of the CPD world. Using minimal equipment, suspension training is highly customisable. The suspension training CPD course therefore teaches you all the necessary skills you need to create highly tailored exercises for a variety of clients.

Boxing and Padwork Fitness Courses - Another highly popular CPD option, boxing and padwork sessions are popular with clients and trainers alike. The boxing and padwork CPD addresses the fundamental aspects of boxing and padwork exercise, and will teach new trainers a wide range of advanced combinations and movements to be integrated into their own exercise programs.

Business Training Courses - The popularity of business training CPD courses demonstrate how crucial it is that personal trainers master sales and marketing as well as a knowledge of fitness. The course will teach personal trainers how to advertise, sell, promote, and market their services. 

Ultimately, these skills will help drastically increase your average personal trainer salary. The courses are usually conducted within a workshop format, and are highly regarded by gyms and leisure centres.

Generally, the most successful trainers (and those with the highest personal trainer pay!) working in either gyms or on a freelance basis, have a wide range of CPD courses on top of their level two and three qualifications.
