Hi all, I wanted to ask if any one has put a trip for their clients together? For instance a retreat. I was thinking that it would be great way to travel and plan a trip for clients to get away and workout. Offering outdoor fitness excursions, nutrition demo’s and possibly fitness on the beach. How do I charge for that? Do I plan all the details and put a price in there with a charge for my services. Do I charge for putting the trip together and the personal training sessions and workshops? Do I put those seperate and if folks want to participate then they would sign up for what they want seperatly? Or should it be one package with one price?
Before you do all the work of planning local attractions, parks etc check your insurance to see if they will cover you for that. You will also probably want to consult with your attorney regarding things like what happens if someone falls vis a vis cost of medical transport, out of network expenses, cost of travel home if they cannot continue the trip. You want the agreement carefully worded.
Also if you are planning to use local parks and so on you need to check to see what they charge to use the area, and if they allow someone to run a for profit event on their grounds.
You will also need to address issues of safety, access, and food allergies.
Lots of yoga teachers do retreats, and yes it is something that can be done, but doing it the first time will be a lot of work. One thing you might like to do is find one like what you want to do and go as a client, just to see how it can work.
