Question by jajaja: How much is a personal trainer ( not a group, a single ) at Lifetime Fitness?
I would want it like 5 days a week, at the Lifetime Fitness Alpharetta. I also want to know how you pay for it. (example- do you pay all at once, what are the different payment methods)
Answer by Matt
Well, it depends on the session. As i dont know the exact price i imagine it could be around 50 bucks a week? I honestly dont know the best way is to call them 🙂 ( for example a 1 hour session 5 times a week will be a lot cheaper than a 30 minute session twice a week)
