Small Group Training Cost Question
I currently am only doing 1/1 training and have some interest for starting up a small group. I DO NOT want to start boot camp or use that term at all, just putting it out there. I don't want to do no more than 6 girls, (I only work with women) and curious any idea on cost.
I've researched on internet and haven't found too much. I live in california. One thing I did see is a company has 3-5 pay 25 an hour and 6-8 pay 15 an hour no matter how many days. So each person would pay that price? I saw one article on here, but didn't give me a solid answer. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Need to figure out ASAP.
1 client = $50, 2 clients = $75, 4 clients = $125. 6 clients = $175
1 client = $40, 2 = $60, 4 = $100. 6 clients = $140 (3 mo. commitment)
1 client = $35, 2 = $52.50, 4 = $87.50. 6 clients = $122.505 (6 mo. commitment)
The number I've seen recommended from a Human Kinetics course on the business of personal training is a multiplier of what you'd charge for a one-on-one training session. For small group training, it's twice the amount.
So if you charge $60/hour for private training, then you would charge around $120 total for a small group. That would range between $25-40 per session depending on the number of people you're targeting.
Hope that helps - good luck!
Consider the following things when determining your pricing:
1) Your actual $$ cost--Rent, supplies, etc.
2) Your time-- are you spending more time working on your classes than you have to with your personal sessions? If so, you need to charge more.
3) The service--If you're keeping the groups small, you're still giving a lot of one on one attention, so people should expect to pay more.
I hope that this helps.
If I have to travel or hire a sitter, that expense factors into my pricing. It usually doubles my price.
