I hired Paul almost seven months ago to help me train for my first NPC Bikini Competition. I was at a point where I had been working out regularly for two years, but was still unhappy with my body and struggling to get through a fitness plateau. Our first meeting was an hour and a half, and Paul listened to my goals, and explained how he would help me accomplish them. By the time I left, I couldn't wait to embark on my new fitness journey, and I knew I had found a trainer that would encourage and challenge me, yet understand that working out could not be my whole life, but an aspect of it along with work, school, and social activities. In February 2014, I weighed 146lbs and was at 26% body fat. Today (August 2014), I am 133lbs, 17% body fat, and FINALLY happy with my body. Paul helped me reach my goals by revamping my diet so that I was eating more often and healthier foods, as well as requiring that I keep a daily food log that he reviews each week. In addition to changing my eating habits, Paul also improved my workout regimen. In the privacy of the PVSFit studio gym, he pushed my body and mind with challenging workouts, which taught me how to push myself when working out on my own. He also helped me structure the workouts performed on my own time. Paul is also very accessible outside of the gym. I e-mail and text him regularly with questions, and he always gets right back to me! When I started this adventure in February 2014, I planned on using a personal trainer until I got through the competition. However, my plan has changed, and I will continue to train with Paul for the foreseeable future so that I can maintain my health and weight loss!

Q & A

Answers to commonly asked questions from the experts on Thumbtack.

What makes a good golf instructor?

A good golf instructor is someone who has the playing skill you’d like to achieve, is qualified to teach golf, and is someone you can get along with. Some experts recommend you only take golf lessons from coaches with active accreditation from reputable associations such as the PGA, LPGA, or similar organizations that focus on continuing education. You’ll be spending hours out on the green with the pro during lessons, so a good rapport, strong communication and the right personality fit are key. A proven track record is also important. Read reviews from their current and former students to make sure they have helped people achieve their golfing goals, and always ask about the instructor’s experience before signing on for lessons. Years of providing lessons can contribute to a deeper understanding of how to teach the sport. Just because your friend or partner is great at golf doesn’t mean they’ll give good golf lessons. Invest in a professional golf instructor who knows how to teach the sport from short game to full swing.

How much are golf lessons?

Golf lessons are a great way to break into the sport or take your golf game to a new level. The national average cost for golf lessons is $50-$60, but prices will vary based on what type of lessons you want. The most expensive golf lessons will be private instruction with top-tier coaches. These are golf instructors who have held high professional ranking and have a good reputation. Regardless of who is teaching, private instruction is always more costly than couples’ lessons or small group lessons (usually up to four people). Teachers often offer a lower price per lesson when you buy a package of several lessons at one time. Here are some examples of average golf lesson costs:

  • Individual lessons:
    • Standard pricing for 60-minute private lesson: $60.
    • 60-minute lesson with renowned golf coach: $100.
  • Couples’ lessons:
    • Standard pricing for 90-minute duo lesson: $100.
    • 60-minute lesson with renowned golf coach: $125.
  • Golf lesson package pricing:
    • Purchase six individual lessons at one time and save $10.
    • Purchase 10 individual lessons at one time and save $40.
    • Purchase six couples’ lessons at one time and save $40.
    • Purchase 10 couples’ lessons at one time and save $200.

What age should you start golf lessons?

Golf lessons for kids can start as early as age four or five. They’re too young for formal training, but you can keep them interested and engaged and give them a feel for the game. U.S. Kids Golf recommends starting formal training for junior golfers at six years old. It’s important for young golfers to swing clubs that are the right length and weight for their body; U.S. Kids Golf provides a fitting guide.

Golf lessons for kids, especially young kids, should be about encouraging success rather than correcting mistakes, according to U.S. Kids Golf. If you want your child to love golf for life, you want their early experiences to be positive. Golf lessons for kids are less expensive than golf lessons for adults. A monthly rate (including four lessons) for group golf lessons for kids may average $100. Semi-private golf lessons for kids may range from $150 to $200 per month. Location and instructor reputation can also affect cost. Often, discounts are provided when multiple months are purchased at one time.
