Here's a detailed look at personal trainer prices in Phuket

Right around 2014 Phuket became a haven for fitness fanatics and people wanting to transform their bodies and improve their health during a 1 - 3 month stay on the island.

Many fitness resorts opened and it was fairly easy to book an all inclusive stay at one of the resorts and be immersed in an atmosphere of complete and total fitness.  I a sense, the island of Phuket was becoming "the place to be" if someone wanted to be in an atmosphere of fitness, have a multitude of gyms to train at, eat healthy meals every day and get su[er cheap Thai massages providing mysofascial release, soft tissue therapy and relaxation for complete workout recovery.

During this time, many foreign personal trainers moved to Phuket to ply their fitness coaching trade.  This made finding a personal trainer in Phuket very easy.

So how much does a personal trainer cost in Phuket, Thailand?

Hiring a personal trainer in Phuket typically costs 1,500 - 2,500 Thai Baht per session, but costs can range from 300 - 800 Thai Baht ($9 - $24) for an unqualified or newly certified coach to 3,000 Thai Baht ($90) and higher for a personal trainer holding an NCCA accredited personal trainer certification or a University Exercise Science BS or Master's degree with twenty plus years of personal training experience and specializations.

Prices for a personal trainer in Phuket will vary if the trainer works inside a gym or is a freelancer training in-home, at a villa resort or at condo gyms.

Typically freelance, mobile personal trainers in Phuket will cost 300 - 500 Thai Baht more per session to account for their travel time and expense to and from their client's training location.  Phuket is a huge island and most Expat personal training clients live in either Bang To Beach, The Boat Lagoon area or in Nai Harn Beach area.  These locations are very far from one another, require lengthy travel, thus personal trainer prices in Phuket can be higher for freelance, in-home, villa and resort personal training prices will be slightly higher as the distance needed to travel gets further from the trainer core area.

300 - 800 Thai Baht per session personal trainers in Phuket

Personal trainers in this price range are unqualified, lack a personal trainer certification or have little or no personal training experience.

It is wise to avoid personal trainers in this price range as their lack of formal anatomy, physiology and especially kinesiology education puts you at risk of injury while training.

Penny wise and dollar dumb is the saying that comes to mind when reviewing the value of a personal trainer in this price range.

900 - 1,400 Thai Baht per session personal trainers in Phuket

Personal trainers in Phuket in this price range typically work at commercial franchised gyms.  They will most often be certified by a local organization which is not accredited by the NCCA.

Freelance personal trainers in Phuket charging per session in this price range typically have a weak training resume, are not certified and do not have a professional website to market themselves, thus, the lower price.

Personal trainers in this price range are not your best investment as they often time lack the anatomy & physiology necessary for  being able to identify body parts and train them.

Many foreign personal trainers in Phuket who have no website to advertise themselves fall into this price range by default just so they can have a lower price and gain clients.

This is not a recommended spend if you're looking for a high quality, expert personal trainer in Phuket.

1,400 - 1,900 Thai Baht per session personal trainers in Phuket

Personal trainers in this price range are typically foreigners with a personal trainer certification, and between 5 - 10 years of personal training experience.

1,400 seems to be the "sweet spot" for foreign freelance personal trainers as most will be charging this rate for personal training at training studios, commercial gyms such as Nai Harn Gym, Stay Resort and Chalong Gym and some Muay Thai gyms within the Nai Harn Beach / Rawai / Chalong area where they are in most demand with the Expat clientele living in this area.

Some personal trainers will charge in this price range and closer to 1,700 Thai Baht as it is congruent with the International standard personal trainer rate of $50 per session.

2,000 - 2,400 Thai Baht per session personal trainers in Phuket

Phuket personal trainers in this price range are typically foreigners with a personal trainer certification, University degree in Exercise Science, Exercise Physiology or Kinesiology and 10 plus years of personal training experience.

Personal trainers and fitness coaches charging these prices are a much wiser investment as they are typically more mature, educated, professional, ethical and embody the traits and characteristics of what a personal trainer should be.

They will have a formal University education or certification in nutrition and provide integrated nutrition coaching into every client's daily fitness training program.

2,500 - 3,300 Thai Baht per session personal trainers in Phuket

Personal trainers in Phuket in this price range are typically foreigners with an NCCA accredited personal trainer certification, University BS or Master's degree in Exercise Science, Exercise Physiology or Kinesiology and 20 plus years of personal training experience.
