The session was challenging for me as one client was at a beginners level and the other more advanced. I charged them both my customary hourly fee. I understand that some trainers offer discounted prices for training 2 people together. Should I feel obligated to offer a “special rate” in order to keep these clients? I got the impression that they thought they would be getting a discounted rate.
Good answers. Training two, charge for two. It’s your time, split the effort, but your concentration on the training session is doubled. Definitely make sure the ‘partner’ is clearly screened and completes a medical history. You are as responsible as if it were a single client. As much as possible have them work together on specific exercises. It’s your responsibility to supervise them both. A challenge.
