Hi Janet. The answer to your question depends so much on the particular facility involved (e.g. chain gym v. private studio v. mom and pop gym). Everyone is different but as a general rule of thumb it seems in my experience that your better percentages will be paid at the private studio or mom and pop. A lot depends on your bargaining power. For example, if you bring a certain specialty training to the facility, you can command a different/higher percentage. Another consideration is a varying percentage based on WHERE the client comes from (i.e. the gym’s client versus one of your own or one that is referred to you by another client).
The best advice I have is negotiate, negotiate, negotiate.
