We are trying to develop a personal training program at our City-run community rec center. My supervisor has asked me to look into independent contractors who would train at our facility for a percentage of their sales OR a monthly facility rental fee. I would love some pointers on what percentage splits look like for the trainer/facility and what a monthly rental fee might look like. Right now, my sup is pushing for a monthly flat rental rate and I have no idea what is typical. Any advice and insights would be immensely helpful! THANKS
This is something that I have seen on both sides of the fence. I used to manage a studio thus I had renters renting from me. If they were a group exercise class and utilized the space at least three hours per week I charged $28 per hour. All rents paid at the beginning of the month.
If they were personal trainers I charged $17 per hour but I think that’s too high.
I had a new teacher come in and rent a back space, she turned it into “her room” I charged her a flat rate of $600 per month.
Today, I sometimes have the need to rent space and I find the average is $20 per hour for a personal trainer which I think is too high.
I would base my decision on the number or hours the person will train.
Also, have contracts drawn up!
