I’ve read and understand the industry standard for pay for a trainer conducting a partner training session is 1 1/2 times that of a private training session (provided the gym charges clients 1 1/2 times per partner training session). So, if a gym pays the trainer $30 per hour for a private training session, then the standard would be to pay $45 for a partner training session. I’m curious to see how clubs and studios structure pay for trainers for a partner training session. I’m working with a personal training director that’s trying to justify higher pay for trainers working with two clients at a time. Thanks!
I do not work in a gym, but for in home clients I add $10 per person to my regular fee. They get a bargain and I get a bit more per session.
I believe it is justified to charge more for partner training. It is more work to train two people; especially if they have different goals or fitness levels. I keep in touch with my clients through e-mail and apps, and adding another person is also more work outside the sessions.
I agree with Harris that more experienced trainers (and those with more education) should be getting more money.
