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?
Definitely analyze your competitors as you consider your pricing.
At one place where I teach group tabata / HIIT, I’m paid my regular hourly instructor rate. On the other end of the spectrum, my semi-private CrossCore and ViPR classes are $15 to $25 each, per attendee, per class. So it really depends on the location, the competitors, what you are offering versus your competitors, and how you can justify your pricing.
Sadly, the amount of time we spend prepping for our classes isn’t always billable to the client. Sometimes, yes, but you have to have to have a reason that’s palatable to the member. For example, I can point to the amount of CECs I have in my specialties. Very few people are even certified in ViPR in the US yet and I’ve been teaching with them for almost a year and a half, so I charge based on (a) I’m certified and (b) my higher experience with the product.
