Hi. I am just getting some information about my competition, actually. We want to know your hourly rate. Also, we may be looking to hire a trainer for the Pompano/Delray Beach area in the near future. You must have 5+ years of experience, have references, be reliable, professional, have an undergraduate degree, and be professionally certified. Anyone out there interested? We will supply the clients, who will pay us, and we will pay you.
Hey, private training gets allot more exciting then a studio if you have the clients. Depending on your credentials, how you tailor to clients, and the target market’s financial status, I recommend pricing yourself on the higher side. A higher price can actually make you more appealing to some and it is allot easier to do discounted rate, sales, specials, then it is to later go up in price. It’s the idea of making yourself desirable. I see way too many trainers get under paid in the industry. Also, make sure you add special touches to the service. For example, always bring a nice bottle of water and a fresh towel for the client (I have some towels with my logo). Make up some classy water bottles with your logo on them to sell or give out. Even bring post workout snacks for those on the go clients. I do private training and life-coaching with high end clients and get paid between $120 – $150 for one person per hour. In addition, if you offer free consultation in person, I recommend having a set cost on the consultation and if the client get’s a package, then the consultation is free. Also, I have some additional fees for extra organization or if they want to train at an affiliated studio. Hope this was helpful.
