Mobile personal training is a niche that allows for more flexibility than working in a gym as an employed or independent personal trainer. When you show up to train a client, there is one of two scenarios that exist:
- The client has a home gym and all the equipment they need to be trained by you, the fitness professional. — Or —
- The client is being met at home/park/work and does not have the equipment they need to be trained by you, the fitness professional.
Being mobile means that you have to be effective in your instruction because you don’t have a full arsenal of equipment like you might have at a gym.
So, what should you bring with you?
With hundreds of equipment options, it’s important to pick equipment that has multiple uses, can be stored in a relatively small area, and isn’t too heavy for you to carry from client to client.
The following list of equipment is both versatile and functional.
These pieces of equipment would be fantastic to completely run your entire mobile personal training business.

This list is NOT a comprehensive list of the equipment that can be used to run your mobile personal training business. We left many items off this list as we wanted to keep it to our criteria. Equipment like kettlebells, for example are fantastic, but are not interchangeable like the dumbbells listed above and would take up too much space.
Did we leave anything off this list that is an absolute necessity for running a mobile personal training session?
