Frequently Asked Questions

What makes Philly Personal Training different from other personal trainers in Philadelphia?

A very important aspect of choosing a personal trainer is researching their education and certification. While some personal trainers simply pass one test to become certified, all personal trainers on our staff have obtained a college degree in an exercise related field in addition to being certified by the most recognized certifications in the industry.

Where do you train clients?

Our brand new studio is located at 1429 Walnut Street on the 4th floor, just blocks away from Rittenhouse Square in Center City, Philadelphia. Our studio is approximately 2200 square feet and boasts a massage therapist and a full bathroom with shower for clients on the go. Our equipment is top of the line and features some equipment that even large gyms do not have available.

How often do I need to train to see results?

This all depends on what your fitness goals are and how soon you want to achieve them. For maximum results in the fastest amount of time, we recommend at least 2 sessions per week.

What else do I get with my personal training packages?

Nutrition training, 24/7 support, a subscription to our bi-weekly newsletter, an initial fitness assessment, tracked progress, and supplemental workouts are all included in your personal training package. That’s a value of well over $200 per month!

Do you track the progress of your personal training clients?

Yes! Every personal training client that starts a package with us must go through a fitness assessment with their trainer. The fitness assessment is a series of tests that your personal trainer will run to help determine your current fitness level and what type of program will work for you. These tests include tracking your body fat percentage, girth measurements, strength, flexibility, cardiovascular fitness, and more. It will also help us develop a baseline measurement of your fitness level. After several weeks, your personal trainer will re-assess you to show your improvement.

Does the personal training studio get crowded at peak times?

While there are certainly more clients in the studio at peak times (before and after 9-5 jobs), it’s never overcrowded. There are many personal training studios our size that have 7 or 8 personal trainers training at once, sometimes with small group training classes, which can cause massive overcrowding during peak hours. We purposely limit the amount of trainers that train at once to keep the private feel that every personal training studio should have.

What is your cancellation policy?

Our cancellation policy is 24 hours before the scheduled workout. Any appointment canceled with less than 24 hours notice is forfeited.
