/Agree with above posts.
Pros- People know what you are worth, quick and easy to transition from business/services to price, little confusion on both parties parts.
Cons- Can scare some people off if too high/low, Unable to offer specific pricing for each customer.
All on what you’re working with I’d guess.
It really depends on what services you offer outside of one on one training as well as if you are training in a facility. If you do small group training and the like it is good to put pricing up, there can be a good floating scale depending on the numbers. Also, if you offer a comprehensive fitness assessment and charge clients regardless if they sign up for training you should probably list that as well. This subject is tricky but a great onion to peel 😉
since I put my rates right here at IDEA FitnessConnect, I also have them on my web site, particularly for my specialty training in MELT where I actually charge more than for my regular training.
I debated on listing my price on the fitnessconnect page for a while. I ultimately decided to post my price so that people know what to expect before contacting me. Since our certifications are verified, it should back up the fact that you are paying for a knowledgeable trainer that is worth their list price. People get what they pay for, and you are valuable.
