For those of you who have in the past or currently been employed at a fitness facility in any capacity (as employee or as an independent contractor) what incentives or other benefits made it worth while to stay – – perhaps longer than you anticipated?
Basically, how can gym owners and managers help alleviate turnover rates for both employees and independent contractors?
If you are a gym owner/manager and had success in keeping great personal trainers, what worked for you?
When I managed a studio I would make sure I paid attention to what my trainers/renters/ were doing.
Sometimes I would give them a break on their rent to show my appreciation other times I would allow them extra training hours for no charge.
It’s important to make sure your employees in particular feel appreciated.
