So I currently am a personal trainer at a gym in the same neighborhood as the apartment i live in. I am hoping to go independent soon. Can I bring clients into my apartment’s gym (which by the way is beautiful, it’s not small, includes a swimming pool, yoga fitness room, pool tables, etc) if i charge them a lower rate?
Also, other getting permission from the building? What else do i have to do legally? I know i need liability insurance, where would i get that from? Nasm’s webiste?
Would i have to hire a lawyer to help me make a waiver, for my clients to sign before training?
Most communities will allow you to train at their gym as long as you don’t bring more than two guest at a time. But keep in mind that you should have Insurance and a waiver ready to go before you do so. There are many options when it comes to liability insurance, I personally use K&K fitness Insurance but if you are an IDEA member go to the insurance tab on top for more info. About the waiver you could create your own, you can even find templates online to give you an idea of what would need to be written on it.
PS. You won’t need to lower your rates, clients pay for your knowledge not the location. You will need to get new clients since it is not ethical to take the current gym clients with you. 😉
