all the others are right on. The thing to add is also the environment in which this instructor teaches. I teach at a large facility, and Pilates instructors get as much (or little as the case may be) per class as all the others. At a studio in a small group or one-on one setting, this can look quite different. Depending on the arrangement between the club/studio and the instructor, there is also usually a discrepancy between the money the client is charged and what the instructor gets.
Pilates, of course, lends itself to in-home training of clients many of whom may have some equipment, and here the rates can be different yet again.
As a pilates instructor, I would agree with all that has been said, however, I would include the type of training the pilates instructor has taken.
Some pilates instructors only teach mat, others like myself teach mat and all the equipment. Does the pilates instructor have a strong background in anatomy and physiology.
Is he/she teaching a group or teaching on an individual basis.
All the best.
My honest answer would be however much they can. Definitely take into consideration the variables that Michael mentioned in his response. However, also consider the type of service you’ll be providing vs. what your competitors are doing.
Here are some questions to consider when determining how you’ll be pricing your services:
– How many years of experience do you have compared to your local competitors?
– What amenities will your clients have access to? (i.e. towel service, changing rooms/showers, personalized take-home workouts, etc.)
– What will you do differently that will make the service you provide unique and valuable compared to other instructors?
