I currently run a studio and we are building and opening a fully equipped gym with memberships, fee based group fitness, etc. I hear that the going percentage is lower than it used to be. As low as 50% for training studios… but what is the standard for a trainer that works in a gym with memberships?
Full time personal training in my peak years was a 30 hour work week not 40. Additionally, many high end clubs used to be close to 50/50 but the packages were high cost for the client. My client would pay $129 and I would get $60. I believe today, 2 years later, I would get $40. The split may be the same, but the asking package price has come down. Private boutique clubs seemed to offer trainers more favorable splits to attract them, 60 to 70 split, again, what is the asking price? Work this out with your trainers. Shoot for win/win/win – client-trainer-owner.
