I am currently working in a Healthcare Facility and train in a hydrotherapy pool. I have decided though that I would like to do some land-training as well and take on only a few mobile clients to make extra income (I am thinking of just 2-3). I would like to know what factors you consider when setting up your packages or payment plans. I am just starting out with land training and would like to charge less at first and gradually increase the price when I feel more comfortable.
Also I may start teaching a boot camp style class at a fitness studio that is to open soon. How much would you charge for something like that? I previously taught Zumba but had to quit because I didn’t make enough teaching to be able to pay the rent there, which is why I am hesitant to start teaching at this new place.
What did you end up deciding to do regarding mobile training and/or bootcamp? How did it go?
As far as charging low then raising prices, I learned the hard way that it’s harder to raise a price on an existing client than start out at what I’m worth. So if you’re still on the fence about your pricing, you might express your pricing as a percentage of your regular price. For example, “My normal rate is $75 per hour, but for clients who purchase a package of 10 or more sessions before July 31, I’m offering a $15 discount to just $60 per hour.”
