The price of hiring a personal trainer in Abu Dhabi

In Abu Dhabi, the cost of personal training can vary from trainer to trainer.

For many people this is confusing but there are many reasons why one personal trainer in Abu Dhabi for example may be more expensive or cost less than another.

Cheaper is not always the best option but then again paying too much doesn’t always mean you are getting a better service either.

We always suggest you research more than one personal trainer to ensure you are getting a good deal for your money.

The price of hiring the best male or female personal trainer in Abu Dhabi doesn’t need to be overly expensive.

Investing in a local coach is an investment in your health and fitness.

Remember, all the fitness professionals on the UAE Personal Trainers website do offer a free consultation so you have nothing to lose.

Why Is There A Difference In Price For Personal Trainers In Abu Dhabi?

Experience Level:


Firstly, the price of a personal trainer in Abu Dhabi is reflected in their experience level.

Like any job, as you rise through the ranks your experience level will increase.

The more your experience level increases the more you can expect to charge for your services.

This is no different in the world of personal fitness.

Whether it’s a male personal trainer in Abu Dhabi or a female personal trainer in Abu Dhabi, the price you pay will definitely increase with the more experience a PT has to offer.

A trainer who has many years experience in training clients with very different needs will tend to charge more.

But, even though you can expect to pay more you are gaining access to someone who really knows the ropes.

The more experienced a trainer is, the more services they can offer to you which can result in you seeing results quicker.

Also, diet and nutrition trainers in Abu Dhabi are in high demand. The best PT’s in your local area will often include a great nutrition plan as part of their customised fitness plans for you.

This can mean you get great advice and experience and not have to pay separately for diet and nutrition advice.


What should you check:

  1. How many years experience does the trainer or coach have
  2. Did they gain experience in different roles within the fitness industry
  3. Is their experience a match to your personal training goal
  4. Can they also offer free diet and nutrition advice

All of the above factors will influence what the price of the personal trainer in Abu Dhabi will be.


On-Going Personal Development:


Like any business, a personal trainer in Abu Dhabi has overheads.

One of these overheads is the continuation of their own personal development through training courses, seminars and other certifications.

More often than not a personal trainer who invests in themselves might need to charge a little more. But you as the client also benefit from using updated training methods, new techniques and more.

PT’s who often attend training courses and learn more about their industry can often provide leading edge methods.


What should you check:

  1. How often does the coach update their own training methods through their own education
  2. Do they offer more advanced and sophisticated training methods


Company Or Freelance Personal Trainers In Abu Dhabi:


Personal trainers in Abu Dhabi are either working on freelance basis, for a sports fitness company or as part of a gym.

Freelance trainers don’t usually have the same overheads (offices, gyms etc) as a company trainer but this is not usually reflected in the price.

Although freelance trainer don’t have the same overheads they are also sometimes limited in where they can train you.

For example, some gyms don’t allow freelance trainer to use their facilities.

If training location (for example at home training in Abu Dhabi) is important to you this might bump up the price because you will need to join a gym.

However, all coaches will be able to provide smaller items of fitness equipment which is ideal for at home training in Abu Dhabi.


Things to consider:

  1. If the PT is company based do they have access to a gym for your workouts
  2. For freelance personal trainers in Abu Dhabi do they have access to training facilities or can you only train at home
  3. Many gym personal trainers only allow you to train in the gym where they are employed in Abu Dhabi


Sought After Training Skills:


This is something that is definitely reflected in the price of personal training in Abu Dhabi.

Both male personal trainers and female personal trainers can (and do) charge a premium for their services if they are qualified to work with clients who have specific needs.

For example, pre and post natal personal trainers in Abu Dhabi have to be trained and certified to work with pregnant women.

You wouldn’t (and shouldn’t) use a coach who is not specifically trained in this area.

The same applies to senior fitness PT’s, children’s fitness coaches and rehabilitation too.

Training and certification in a specialist subject does take time, experience and money which means the trainer can charge more for their services to clients in Abu Dhabi.

However, think of it this way. Would your prefer to invest your time and money with someone who is qualified and knows the best training methods for your fitness goal or would you prefer to take a chance?

Most people would definitely choose the first option.


Things to consider:

  1. If the reason you want hire a personal trainer in your local area of Abu Dhabi includes specialist training expect to pay more
  2. Trainers with sought after skills often invest more time and money in their own education and career
  3. Make sure your coach is not only experience but also certified to provide specialist training services


Membership Of Professional Services:


Joining and becoming a member of a professional body in Abu Dhabi like UAE Reps costs time and money.

The price of a personal trainer in Abu Dhabi who is reps registered isn’t always higher.

But, using a reps registered trainer does indicate that they have proven to a governing body that they are fully qualified and able to provide fitness coaching.

Of course there are other registration and professional organisations that many personal trainers are part of.

In Abu Dhabi many of the fitness coaches are from overseas and these coaches are normally registered with professional organisations in their home countries.

However, all personal trainers should eventually become registered with UAE Reps.

As part of their membership of UAE Reps the trainers have to undertake regular training courses to ensure they meet specific criteria.


Things to consider:

  1. The price of a personal trainer in Abu Dhabi can go up if the coach is registered with a professional organisation
  2. Ongoing training and membership of professional bodies is usually yearly so PT’s have to budget for this in their pricing structure


Lower The Price Of Personal Training In Abu Dhabi & Get A Better Deal With Block Bookings:


Like any business, the more you buy the less you pay.

This is the same when looking at the price of personal training in Abu Dhabi.

Almost all personal trainers want to take on clients who are looking at their health and fitness as a long term goal.

With this in mind most trainers and fitness coaches will offer a great deal when you book a set number of personal training sessions.


For example, many PT’s will scale their discounts:

  • 10 personal training sessions with a 10% discount
  • 20 personal training sessions with a 20% discount


When you speak with a trainer make sure you ask what discounts they can provide – both for short term and long term fitness goals.


Finally, Train In A Group For More Savings:


Many people in Abu Dhabi can save much more on the price of their Abu Dhabi PT.

If you hire a personal trainer or fitness coach as part of a group you can split the fees between you.

The higher the number in your group the lower your overall fees become which can result is great savings over time.

So, ask around – friends, family and even co-workers might have the same fitness goals as you.

In conclusion. The price of a PT in Abu Dhabi is changeable depending on many factors, including:


  • Personal Trainer Experience


  • Membership Of Professional Organisations


  • Sought After Training Skills

The Basics Of Functional Training In Abu Dhabi

You may have heard of functional training but it’s a term that is sometimes misunderstood. Abu Dhabi personal trainer Elena has provided the Abu Dhabi Personal Trainers website with some basic information about functional training and how it can be used in our day to day life.

What exactly is functional training?

When we say “functional training” we are talking about training your body to efficiently do the things that is required of it during daily/weekly activities. Functional training consists of exercises that engage multiple muscle groups of “compound exercises”. So instead of sitting and doing a bicep curl where only the bicep is engaged, we do movement that requires the muscles around the shoulder, elbow, core, back, hips, knees and ankles to all engage at the same time.

According to some sources the best explanation of functional training is ‘training the body for the activities performed in daily life’ This seems quite a broad statement so how does functional training help in our daily life?

With functional training we are training our bodies to move through the motions that our activities require for us. But so, the purpose of functional training is so that we can do these things efficiently, with a reduced risk of injury, without pain and with emphasis on a good form. Here are some examples:

T-Pushup: Work upper body strength and spinal stability with the twisting motion for getting off the floor

Farmers Carry: Train your core and full body stability for carrying the groceries or shopping bags!

Weighted Step-up: For carrying anything upstairs.

Balancing on Bosu : For being able to keep balance on slippery surface.

Does functional training target any particular area(s) of the body?

When we do functional training, we don’t train specific muscle group, we train whole movement that could help in our daily routine.

How does functional training fit in with other training methods, for example is it used to supplement other exercises or used as a stand-alone training method?

Functional training can be use as a stand-alone training method if it is required for rehabilitation, for example, or when the goal is to have multifunctional body where strength, agility, flexibility, coordination, balance is developed equally well.

Also, FT can be perfectly fit in bodybuilding program, as it helps to improve range of motion for some exercises and some individuals.

As a personal trainer in Abu Dhabi with functional training experience can your techniques be applied to anyone and any age group?

There are principles (mobility and stability, tension and relaxation and so on) on which meaningful functional processes are based. These are basic principles of movement that are foundations that support any viable training process. So, it can be applicable to anyone accordingly.

In your experience, can you sum up why functional training is important and how it can help with ‘general fitness’

Here are some major benefits of functional training, strengthen not only our bodies but also our philosophy that functional training can be right for everyone.

Movement Matters; Our bodies are designed to move, not to sit slumped over a computer all day. The less you move, the less blood sugar your body uses. Functional training focuses on training movement patterns rather than isolating individual muscles. If you spend most of your working day sat down in the office, sitting on the chest press machine at the gym is probably counterproductive.

Posture; Functional training can help to correct bad posture and muscular imbalances caused by the daily grind, stressful jobs and hectic lifestyles.

Fat Burning; Functional training provides fantastic fat burning workouts, by using full body exercises that improve strength, endurance and boost metabolism, not wasting a minute of your session.

Muscle Tone/Density; It develops strong, lean bodies.

Stability; Every session includes flexibility, mobility, core stability, balance and strength training principles to keep your body constantly challenged in all areas of a strong, healthy and vibrant body.

Sports Specific; Functional training provides essential training for sport specific conditioning. Enhancing the relationship between the nervous and musculoskeletal system, providing quick, reactive, and powerful movement patterns – whether your chosen sport is golf, rugby or MMA.

Core Strength; in functional training every exercise involves core activation, teaching the core to stabilize the spine against external force, throughout an array of differing movement patterns and body positions. Therefore, mimicking the demand placed upon the core and spine in our everyday tasks and recreational activities. Crunches alone, unfortunately just don’t cut it!

Carbs…Friends Not Enemies – UAE Personal Trainers
Share This - Choose Your Platform

Carbs! Are They Really That Bad?

With so much conflicting advice about what we should and shouldn’t eat Peter Judge, a personal trainer from Dubai provides some useful tips on why carbs are not that bad for you after all.

Carbs Are Not The Enemy…

It seems to me that people will never stop arguing over the best way to eat. Let’s set the record straight here, on why you SHOULD in fact be including carbs in your diet and how they will aid you in your personal training in Dubai.

Carbs are certainly not a negative, if used proportionately they play a vital and in fact CRITICAL role in the performance of your body.

Once upon a time, whilst the rest of the world continued to live in fear of fat, the fitness community totally embraced it.  However, carbohydrates became the target of our frustrations and we began blaming them for making us fat, compromising our immune system and gut function, inflaming our joints and generally ruining our lives.

Since then we in the fitness industry have learnt our lesson and carbs have had their reputation restored!

Im just not seeing the same revelation in Dubai, as it’s still a misconception I have to address with personal training clients over and over again.

Why? You ask…

Let me go through a few simple reasons to use carbs;






  1. BODY & MIND

So Which Carbs Are Best?


Let’s starts with fruit, yes that’s right, fruit contains carbs! It shouldn’t make up the bulk, but that doesn’t mean don’t eat fruit.


Fruit is a valuable source of vitamins, minerals and fiber; and has definitely got its place in a balanced approach to nutrition. However, you would have to eat a lot of fruit to satisfy your carbohydrate/calorie requirements after training. So it’s not optimal to rely upon fruit as an energy source.

Most fruits are low calories and essential for optimizing health, just not optimal as your primary energy source.


Starch is literally just a long chain of glucose molecules bonded together.

That doesn’t matter too much, although humans have a tough time digesting the stuff raw, which does matter. Cooking breaks it down into pure glucose ready for utilization as a substrate to produce cellular ENERGY throughout your body.

What doesn’t get used can be stored. Preferably in your biceps, quadriceps or abdominals. Which while we are on that subject are notably the main areas people store excess body fat.

What you need to think about is the rate of absorption and how it’s affected by added fiber in starchy foods; it’s potentially disadvantageous in situations where we need to shoot for quick glucose uptake like when you train or do excessive activity.

The most important thing to note is that you need dietary glucose (CARBS) to effectively replenish muscle glycogen, otherwise the body crashes and that’s when you get the cravings of bad dietary foods.

Supplementing Carb Intake And Liquid Nutrition

Now there is one great way to optimize the balances through supplementation although I STRONGLY recommend you start with REAL WHOLE foods first through a few different means.

For anyone in search of greater performance, incorporating supplements into your plan can really bring your performance to the next level in both spectrums.

For Athletes the most important time to ensure you have adequate energy available is before training. You also need to be able to replenish those glucose stores immediately after for recovery.

For the general public the most important and best use is for recovery; restoring what has been lost before workouts and to avoid crashes to vital parts of nutrition. Any carbs that don’t get used will be stores away if not used.

Now what we mean by supplements… we mean Modified Starches like Maltodextrin, Dextrose and Waxy Maize. The great thing is they’re affordable and easy to blend right in with your favorite protein powder and provide you with exactly what you need to begin restoring glycogen.

On the other hand; pureed food are a fast and effective way of getting what the body needs. You can be imaginative and creative with what you put in them to make them delicious, making them and interesting yet very effective in post work out nutrition.

E.g. Potato, along with some coconut milk, not forgetting some salt would be a simple solution. You can also use a variety of choices mixed with coconut milk or almond milk.

In terms of quick nutrient absorption and efficiency for time (if prepared properly) this can be a great time saver for those with busy schedules.

So to sum up enjoy your carbs and use them to your advantage as they are vital to your health and should never be completely left out.
