How many times a week should you do personal training?

The frequency of personal training sessions can vary depending on factors such as individual goals, fitness level, availability, and budget. However, a general recommendation is to engage in personal training sessions 2 to 3 times per week.

Working with a personal trainer on a regular basis provides several benefits, including accountability, guidance, and motivation. It allows for consistent progression, proper form, and personalized programming based on your goals and abilities. Regular sessions also facilitate ongoing feedback and adjustments to optimize your training.

That being said, the specific frequency of personal training should be determined based on your individual circumstances and preferences. Factors such as your current fitness level, time availability, and budget can all influence how often you engage in personal training.

It’s important to find a balance that challenges you while allowing for adequate recovery. If you’re new to exercise or have specific health considerations, you may start with fewer sessions per week and gradually increase the frequency as you progress.
