    I've been thinking to get a personal trainer for some time. When I go to the gym I only do cardio, I'm not comfortable using weights as I'm not sure how to use some of the machines. So I thought that a personal trainer could help me with toning.

    He's charges £45 per session - is this normal? I live in London btw. He said he does 10 sessions for £375. It seems quite pricey, is this normal for PT's to charge? I just want to make sure I'm not being bumped.


    Even if it is right then that's a lot of money to learn to lift when lots of people teach themselves. I'm in Manchester and £30-45 seems normal

    Think about whether you really need one. is it a confidence thing or instruction? People teach themselves. You could always get him to set up a program for you, get used to it then stop. Personally id rather spend the £45 on equipment. Price seems standard. make sure you ahve seen some of his clients or know why you think he/she is a good P/T.
Do you agree with the proposed ban on plastic straws and cotton buds?
