I do offer small group progams, but I prefer one-on-one. I make more money on the small groups as each participant in the group pays a fraction less than my one-on-one fee, but the total is higher. As an example (not my actual pricing, just easier math) 1 client – $100, 2 clients – $180, 3 clients – $240. But I spend just as much time preparing programs for each client, contacting their physician, going over their paperwork and history, etc. So, it pays less per actual hour spent on the group’s program and I don’t get to spend as much time helping each person get where they want to be. It takes the “personal” out of personal training. This is also one of the reasons why I do not market online training. It isn’t professional, it is just a profit scheme.
I know I could spend a lot less time outside of their hour with me on how I approach that hour, but that would make me less of a professional. And their program less effective.
