I need your feedback on starting semi-private personal training sessions.
My business is personal training of women in their homes or offices. A couple of current and former clients want to do all semi-private sessions, or a combination of one-on-one/semi-private. For a percentage of my hourly rate, the owner of a local martial arts studio is allowing me to use his space during the day when it is not in use. I was thinking of offering class on a Monday morning, but am wondering if two mornings--perhaps also a Thursday--is better. The series of six weeks would be pre-paid. Maximum number of participants is four. Format is a circuit class using my portable equipment--resistance tubes, stability ball, free weights, step, foam roller, gliding discs, etc. Rate per person per class is just a little more half of my one-on-one hourly rate. No refunds are given for missed classes. My business webpage has a link with reference of offers to my Facebook business page, where the offer will be posted. Your feedback on this proposal is needed and appreciated. Thank you!
The idea is a good one, I would offer two classes per week if you can.
For situations like yours I will figure out what my I need to make in the end, after expenses
You may want to ask the owner if he'd accept a flat rate for your rent., instead of a percentage.
Does this help you?
If not, please clarify
I agree with Susan. A flat rate would be better, but what is it that you are asking? I like you idea about two classes instead of one.
I would also go with two classes per week.
I used the percentage instead of a flat rate since it is not on a regular basis.
The group rate I charge is half the one on one rate, when it is five or more people.
Have fun and take care,
Sounds like a solid plan though.
