I work with only women between ages 21-40 and do 1/1 and partner training. It’s going well. I train outdoors and inside my home
In indoor soccer and sports center has a very large space for me to rent for 45 an hour and they want to promote me and my business. I have no experience yet with groups of more than four girls. It’s an an opportunity to leverage business. There are tons of moms and young women that I can offer services to. I have to rent the space, but they will promote me and only me.
Here are concerns:
Do I start bootcamp style classes
Do I stick with just small group and work as groups and partners
I am 5 months pregnant, should I consider hiring someone to help
I have to provide equipment
I really want this opportunity, just struggling on what direction I should take, especially with a toddler and one on their way.
Only you know if this is the right opportunity for you. You have a lot of transferable skills from personal training that would translate over to training groups. A few questions come to mind, both from a personal and a professional perspective.
What type of classes was the sports center thinking you would offer?
Who’s insurance is covering what? Will you need additional coverage?
Will you need additional equipment?
Is this something you need to take on right now to grow your business?
What additional forms & fee structure will you need?
Is this something your current clientele is interested in or are you looking to get into another revenue stream?
Is this the right time? Sure it may be the right opportunity, but with another child on the way, is this the right time for you, for your family and for your business to take advantage of this opportunity
What type of additional childcare, if any, would you need to take on these additional hours?
What will you do about maternity leave and how does the sports center feel about that? Have you already discussed having someone fill in for you? What type of contract will you have with that person and the sports center to ensure the security of your business (ie: so they don’t steal your business, your idea, etc)?
Like I said, only you can answer these questions, but there are soo many directions you can take this in. The decision is all yours!
