I am a personal trainer and have been requested to offer a basic nutrition and exercise plan for a new client. The potential client would like to meet for about 30 minutes, twice a month to go over their “plan” and make adjustments and track their progress. How much do I charge for such consulting?
I agree with Christine that the 30 minutes is too short of a session to professionally assess your clients progress. My follow up sessions are typically about an hour long. During this time we go over the training plan, any particular movements that they might be having problems performing, and then make adjustments as necessary. Explain to the client that 30 min isn’t enough time to professionally make your assessment.
As far as pricing, I charge a full session price ($85 for me), since they are taking up a full session spot. If the client is insistent on the 30 min consult, I would charge between $50-$60 for the session.
