Hello! I was just hired as a personal trainer today. It is at a very nice club where I live and I am just wondering what will most likely happen next. I go in next Wednesday to fill out paper work so I’m just curious about what will happen typically. I will be payed through a 60/40 split, but since I am a new trainer and don’t have any clients yet, when will I actually start making money? This club only assigns personal trainies for new members that are interested. Any information about what may happen next would be greatly appreciated!
Hey guys! Thank you for all of the answers to my question. You were all very helpful and helped calm my nerves about what was to come.
So at my gym, trainers are paid with a 60/40 split and are not paid hourly which is kind of rough, especially just getting started. We are paid around $10 for new member orientation sessions and are paid for meetings that we attend.
We can also do lobby hours to meet new clients and give out our information.
Overall, it has been great! The people at my gym are awesome and my manager does not micro-manage me at all. It’s really nice to be completely in charge of program design and clientele.
Thanks for all the help everyone!
