She referred a client to me recently, and her focus is on wellness and nutrition. Both of us have a small clientele base and must be careful of our expenses. She showed me a space in her office which could accommodate at 5-6 participants. She is going to check with her clients for their interest in a basic exercise workshop of about 45 minutes-1 hour; the equipment minimal, with a focus on core and posture. In time, the potential is there for a regular class. My purposes are to gain some new personal training clients, and to keep it financially feasible for my mobile training business. She wants an option for her clients who may not want to begin with one-on-one personal training. Training under her roof adds to my credibility. What has been your approach and experience? How would you charge for a workshop? I’m not a fan of discounting services because of the expectation it creates. Thank you for your help.
You can charge a flat rate or by the person. If this is a one time deal, you also have the option to have free admission/participation since this will give you the chance to promote yourself to a much larger audience that otherwise you wouldn’t have the chance to do so. There you can explain how your fee structure is set up for those who would like to become your clients. Many options.
