I am interested to understand how much of the personal training market is private – where the personal trainer themselves take 90% of the fee paid by the client. And how much is generated from the gym themselves – therefore where the PT has to split the value of the session with them gym. I am interested in how this works in practice and where the PT’s would administer their private sessions.
90% seems quite a bit high. I don’t recall that I’ve ever seen that if the trainer is using the facility’s equipment and/or getting referrals from the facility’s membership. The key is to be a good negotiator when you draw up the working relationship contract with the facility. The more experience, education and/or credible certifications the greater your negotiating power.
