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.
To keep things simple (I like simple things) I would charge them a monthly fee and I wouldn’t worry to much about how many clients or hours they do each month. Figure out what is a fair price for you and then just ask each trainer to pay that amount. The trainers would also feel like they don’t have to give up a part of their hourly income to you and/or charge more per hour in order to make the money they need.
