What is the average percentage fitness centers receive from personal training sessions?

5 Answers | Asked by Janet Heiner on Jan 03, 2014

Answered by Karin Singleton on Jan 03, 2014

Hi Janet, as the others said, the percentage is different from location to location but 50 % for the club is usually the high end.

What is better for working with seniors - becoming a personal trainer or group trainer?

5 Answers | Asked by S Boyd on Dec 31, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 31, 2013

5 Answers | Asked by vijay vyas on Dec 25, 2013

Answered by Karin Singleton on Dec 25, 2013
