How do you determine your pricing structure as a beginner?

6 Answers | Asked by Cassandra Schmigotzki on Dec 23, 2015

Answered by Sue D'Alonzo on Dec 24, 2015

I would not suggest doing this. I believe it's important to place value on your services. My suggestion would be to get your certification first, then market yourself. If you need 'practice" that's a different story. Market your self the way you see yourself.

I am the head personal trainer in an indoor rock climbing gym. How do I attract clients

9 Answers | Asked by Michael Levenson on Dec 16, 2015

Answered by Sue D'Alonzo on Dec 24, 2015

I would start offering small group classes first. This is a great way to figure out who is serious about fine tuning their skills and you can then market your one on one to those who are interested. Yoga and core work would also be a great addition to rock climbers.
