The market penetration rate of fitness centres in Malaysia is between 1% and 2% compared to 5% in Singapore, and between 10% and 17% in the US, Australia and the UK (1).

With the big merge of celebrity fitness, fitness first ,and chi fitness recently , this definitely show that the commercial fitness market in Malaysia is going on a uptrend (or maybe not?) .

The average pay for a Personal Trainer in Malaysia according to pay scale is RM100 per hour (USD 24.26). Average Personal Trainer Salary yearly is RM 35,000(USD 8491.52)  (2) .

I can share a good amount of insight on Malaysia commercial gym , and i love talking about it . I was with celebrity fitness before .
Well , you may ask me , how is the celebrity personal trainer salary looks like ?

MY ANSWER :The basic is sucks , like real suck

But as a commercial gym coach , you should not  expect high basic salary, but , you should expect HIGH SALES commission instead .This is also how you are going to earn your living .

An average rookie celebrity personal trainer can earn about RM 3000 per month , and the top coach can definitely earn up to 5 figures monthly .

So yeah… good money being a personal trainer in Malaysia.

PERSONAL TRAINER SALARY india
According to a Deloitte India report, fitness industry in India is worth USD1.1 billion and is expected to cross $1.1 billion by 2017 (12)

In fact, government by recognizing “Wellness” as one of the priority sectors in India . A great example is healthifyme Apps. Healthyfime get a total funding of 25m in a total of 7 funding rounds. It is currently the top apps in India (13).

I am currently working with healthifyme in Malaysia , this apps is definitely the beginning of the fitness revolution .  I believe that in the next 10 years , personal training will be absolutely done online , no more 1 on 1 coaching , as face to face coaching is just not effective in the sense of finance and also time .

  4. How to Use Healthifyme Apps In Malaysia – Step by Step Guide (Unoffifical)

Furthermore , why people in the 20th century prefer 1 on  1 ,face to face training ? There are a few reasons .

  1. Personal touch and coaching.
  2. Because they would like coaches to correct their posture
  3. They would like the “real human” communication

Let me tell you something, above 3 reasons are not going to apply to the 20″(people that born in year 2000 onwards) .

a) These 20″ are tech savvy .

b) They do not need personal touch , they only need touchscreen on their phone .

c) They do not need coaches to correct their posture , they prefer to watch online video and learn stuff by them-self .

d) They do not give a damn to real human communication. When they born , they only interact with ipad and iphone . I doubt they know how to talk to real human .

So , business that targeting this 90s and above age group , this business will not survive in the near future , as these groups of people are going to retire and dying off soon , literally .

The average personal trainer in India is as show below :

  • Average India Personal Trainer Salary ₹4,39,715 (INR)/yr. (USD 6247.91)
