It is no secret that a personal trainer is a costly investment and that you have to be dedicated towards your sessions in order to make the money worth it. After all, nobody wants to splash out hundreds of pounds a year to look exactly the same in 12 months! With this said, there is no real rule that dictates what time of year is best suited towards personal trainer hiring however the team here at Fitness Training Solutions love being helpful so we are going to go over some pros and cons of the most common joining seasons…


In the personal training world, the month after christmas that signals a brand-new start is the busiest time of year. This is because everyone has decided to try a new routine in order to lose weight. This can of course be a blessing and a curse because business is booming and many people will decide to stick with their personal trainer. On the other hand, some people give up after a few months when the novelty has worn off. If you are dedicated then January may be a good month for you however if you know you will give up at the first hurdle then it may be wise to start another time and save your cash.


As the warmest time of year, the heat and humidity of summer can be quite off putting for many people and personal trainers will make your work hard regardless of the weather. On the other hand, it can be good to begin your personal trainer journey during the warmer months as it is easier to get out of bed!

Winter/Before Christmas

On the contrary, starting with a personal trainer in winter can make it incredibly difficult to get out of bed and into the gym as it is much warmer underneath the covers. With this said, getting to grips with your new healthy routine before christmas can prevent over eating during the holiday season!

Regardless of this information it is important to remember that there is no right or wrong time to start working out with a personal trainer. After all, they will help you get the results you want as safely as possible. In fact, if you think you could turn a fitness hobby into a career then our personal training courses may be of interest!
