I have been asked to research adding personal training services to our Rec Center’s offerings. We are not a private gym, but operated by the city. I would love to hear from directors and managers about how your PT services work (especially from the public sector). I am weighing the pros and cons of hiring PTs as City employees whom we would pay hourly and independent contractors who we would take a percentage of their PT fees. Any insights/advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Make sure you are hiring trainers who have accredited certifications,proof of liability insurance, current CPR/AED training and experience.
I would talk to your accountant and business authority to get input on the logistics of your operation and determine what works best for you.
Renting your space may be another way to go.
