I am in the process of opening a studio in my area. I already have several clients on my roster that are coming over, but I’m thinking about allowing other trainers in with their clients also. Rather than charge them a per month fee for use of the facility I was thinking about a per session rate. Does anyone have a suggestion to the percentage or flat fee to charge? How about a fee to pay or charge someone looking to teach a class? I know a lot of this depends on what that trainer will charge and what they are willing to pay, but I’m just looking for averages.
If you charge per session, who keeps track?
I would give trainers incentive by charging less the more hours they rented, I also charged a monthly fee with a max amount of hours attached.
However, there were times that I found trainers using the space when they were not allowed. I would address this in your contract.
I also required a deposit substantial enough to matter.
As for paying a teacher to teach a class, first determine how much you can make maximum then decide on a fair price.
