I’m adding additional classes to my studio; I’ve done specialty boot camps/high intensity interval training/Tabata training, some where I’ve handed out workouts to take home, others not“I have charged different prices in the past, but wondering what others charge for such classes. Lots of time and programming goes into each of these types of classes, so I feel they should be charged more, but I don’t want to turn clients away from taking them because of the prices. Any suggestions on what others are doing within their studios/gyms/facilities?
Hi Monica. To be honest, I think that no matter what class we are teaching (or for individual clients as well) most of us are spending “extra time” outside of the actual training time, with planning and programming. How this is handled varies, and really depends on your philosophy on your time, and what’s covered under your fee. To my mind, I would NEVER train or conduct a small group session without planning it out. So since this is “the norm,” I don’t really think of charging EXTRA for that part of what I do, instead when I’m figuring my fees, I take into account my expertise etc., but not necessarily the programming time separately.
I think that the only time that I would consider charging an extra fee for programming would be if I were specifically designing a program at the client’s request for them to use on their own.
I hope that this helps.
