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

During the past 5-7 years, Phnom Penh has experienced extreme gentrification across all sectors of it's society.

From housing to clothing to personal hygiene, Khmer people are looking better than ever and taking measures to increase their health and improve their fitness.

 

Several new gyms, fitness centers and personal training studios have opened providing Cambodians and Expats alike the opportunity to conveniently workout on their terms to stay fit.

With these new gyms and the new found interest in getting fit, so too has the personal training industry in Phnom Penh grown.

Never before have there been so many certified personal trainers in Phnom Penh working in commercial gyms and on a freelance basis offering personal training at apartment gyms and in-home.

It's easier than ever to search for a personal trainer in Phnom Penh and find the right fitness coach for your individual health and fitness needs.

Personal trainers are available for HIIT, yoga, weightlifting, strength training, Muay Thai kickboxing, weight Loss, cardiovascular fitness and many more goals.

Trainers can range in price depending on their fitness education and experience and whether are close to your location and have to travel far to get to you.

People often view Phnom Penh and Cambodia s a cheap country so they automatically think the price for a personal trainer in Phnom Penh should be congruently low.  

To people with this perspective I will say "A Ferrari costs the same in every country"!

Now, there is the factor of cost of living relative to the cost of goods and services in any city and it does, to an extent, play a role in the price of a personal trainer.  I would say it's ab out 50% of the factoring in price structure.  However, if you want the best quality in product or service, you're going to have to pay a premium no matter what it's for.  This also includes personal fitness training, especially private personal fitness training when the personal trainer comes to your location..

Being a professional personal trainer in Phnom Penh since 2005, I'm here to give you insight into the pricing structure for personal trainers in Phnom Penh.

So how much does a personal trainer cost in Phnom Penh?

Hiring a personal trainer in Phnom Penh costs from $10 - $15 for an unqualified or newly certified coach to $20 - $50 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 Phnom Penh will vary if the trainer works inside a gym or is a freelancer training in-home or at condo gyms.

Typically freelance, mobile personal trainers in Phnom Penh will cost $10 - $15 more per session to account for their travel time and expense to and from their client's training location.  Prices will be slightly higher as the distance needed to travel gets further from the trainer core area.

$10 - $15 per session personal trainers in Phnom Penh

Khmer personal trainers in this price range are fitting nicely into their market value according to the relative costs of goods and services in Phnom Penh.

However, the overall value is low as the standard of this entry level personal trainer is being held lower simply due to a lack of practical personal fitness training experience since the personal training industry in Phnom Penh in and of itself is still very young and immature.

Foreign 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.

$20 - $30 per session personal trainers in Phnom Penh

In this price range, you'll find some of the more qualified Khmer personal trainers who have gained 3-5 years or some experience in a particular specialization.  This is typically the price range for a Khmer personal trainer coming to your apartment gym or in-home to provide private personal training.

This price range would also include Khmer personal trainers who are also athletes competing on a National level in any given sport.

The interesting thing about this price range is that you'll also see a majority of foreign personal trainers at the same cost.

According to ratios and costs of living factors, this price range is about half the cost of the International standard rate for a personal trainer which is $50 per session.  This is in line with Phnom Penh being about half the cost of an International city and it's cost of living.  But keep in mind that the cost of living in Phnom Penh is rising quickly and so too will the personal training rates.

$35 - $45 per session personal trainers in Phnom Penh

You'll be hard pressed to find a Khmer National personal trainer in this price range as they lack experience in areas of specialization which would increase their per session value and price.  I have yet to find  Khmer personal trainer at this price point.

Personal trainers in Phnom Penh 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.

$50 - $70 per session personal trainers in Phnom Penh

Personal trainers 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.

This personal trainer, myself Dennis Romatz being an example personal trainer, will be a fitness industry ambassador, leader and have a proven track record and long list of training clients with safe, successful results.  He or she may possess multiple NCCA accredited personal trainer certifications as well as supplemental nutrition, sports performance, strength & conditioning, pre & post natal, Senior's training and group fitness certifications.

The personal fitness trainer in Phnom Penh in this price range is an absolutely wise spend in terms of being able to maximize your personal training sessions, improve your health and transform your body.
