Hi. I have been approached from a large private school to submit a tender to provide a variety of fitness classes (Pilates, barre, Aqua fitness, Piloxing, stretching) to their students before and after school. It could be up to 10 classes per week. I have absolutely no idea what to charge. It takes 30min to drive there.i was also considering giving them 2 health and nutrition goal setting workshops per term as an extra as I am also a Health & Nutrition Coach.
Has anyone else provided classes to schools and if so what on earth do you charge. Thanks for your help.
Would you want to teach at a place that is going to be a 1/2 hour drive away? If you are doing a class before and a class after school, that’s 2 hours in your car every day. Possibly more than that, if traffic is unpredictable and you don’t want to be late. That would be a huge consideration for me. Most places that purchase our services don’t care about our commute.
I’ve taught at corporate settings but not at a private school. Generally, I charge about 50% more per hour than my group-ex rate at a gym, since I’ve been a contractor and not an employee at those places. If they don’t already have the equipment that you need, you might want to propose a quarterly or annual equipment budget as well.
