How can personal training be so cheap?

The reality is that trainers get paid very little and gyms make a massive mark-up (see chart). Most trainers are independent contractors and only get paid when they have a client. They often wake up at 5am and get home after 10pm, but only work for a few hours during the morning and evening rush hours. In between they need to schedule existing clients, seek out new ones, plan upcoming workouts and of course travel to/from the gym or client’s home (a cost in both time and money). It’s a pretty tough way to make a living: long hours, a constant hustle, lots of competition from new entrants, and little pay – which explains why 70% of trainers leave the profession every year.

At Magic, we pay our trainers an excellent wage but don’t pass on the gym markup – which means you no longer need to be rich to afford personal training. Moreover, trainers can have a steady work schedule and spend all their time and energy doing what they love: helping people like you achieve their health and fitness goals.
