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 also echo Christine’s sentiments on this – every one of them. I’s simply not enough time to learn about a new client & provide them with an effective program. Even 2 – 1 hour sessions/month is pushing it. I would suggest to them that you need to meet with them more frequently for at least the first month or two to drill them on proper exercise form & technique. I would tell them that I wouldn’t be comfortable just handing over a workout to them to do on their own, without being confident in their ability to perform the exercises correctly, and that it would be against my better judgment. Saying that will do nothing but add to your credibility as a trainer. If the client is dead-set against it, I would most likely take a pass. Good luck Sasha!
