I own a small business and I will hire personal trainers, paying them with a W2. Trying to find out what is the hourly rate to pay Personal Trainers to provide 50 minutes Bootcamp class to a group of 5 people. The bootcamp will be conducted outdoors. Also, what personal trainers prefer?, W2 or 1099?
If you are paying them with a W2, it makes them your employee,if you are paying them as Independent Contractors you need to provide a 1099: Consult your tax person first.
The pay for the bootcamp depends on what you will be charging for the bootcamp.
Factor in all costs for the program, figure out how much you need to make, find out what other bootcamp instructors make and also be sure all of your instructors have their own liability insurance, are certified by a nationally recognized organization and are CPR/AED certified as well.
Always ask and check for references and of course everyone fills out a ‘release’ form.
Keep in mind that if you are hiring personal trainers to lead a bootcamp, you may want to take a class first, not all personal trainers are naturally good bootcamp instructors and visa versa. This is not a one size fits all industry although at times, I wonder….
Look for proper experience and credentials.
