Here's a detailed look at personal trainer prices in Phnom Penh

In recent years, the fitness industry has exploded in Phnom Penh.  With this increase came more commercial gyms, small boutique fitness studios and as well, a glut of personal trainers.

However, these personal trainers where not necessarily your ideal candidate to help you make the body transformations, health improvements and fitness increases that you may be hoping for.  The vast majority of these personal trainers in Phnom Penh are either not certified or newly certified and lacking any practical personal fitness training experience.

With the advent of a flooded personal trainer market, personal trainers who didn't have the strong personal fitness training resume and/or a significant amount of training experience and who lacked a formal University exercise science education quickly realized that they had to drop their personal training prices in order to get clients.  And even then, folks shopping for the cheapest personal trainer didn't seem to value an exercise science accredited personal trainer and chose the cheapest available further wreaking havoc on the personal trainer pricing structure as a whole.

In addition to the many Khmer personal trainers in Phnom Penh, there are also several foreign personal trainers.  Some of these foreign personal trainers and fitness coaches are personal trainer certified and have practical fitness training experience, but unfortunately many do not.  These personal trainers, lacking a fitness trainer resume, are invariably forced to lower their prices to market themselves and get clients.  This has had a tremendous impact on the pricing structure of personal trainers in Phnom Penh.
