My first question to you is – are you just starting out yourself? Or have you been around for a while & built up a good reputation in the area – what’s your background? I’m assuming the 70/30 split is in the trainer’s favor – right? I had a pretty detailed Independent Contractor agreement when I had other in-home trainers with me. And it did have a non-compete clause & made it pretty clear that all clients were the property of my business. I had some very loyal trainers with me & I also dealt with a few snakes. The key is to have regular contact with both the client and the trainer. This is tough to do when the training is done in-home and you’re not there. You just have to go with your gut instincts when hiring a trainer. Good luck with this & keep us posted.
