Yes! There is an easy way!! Go to www.GymLynx.com. We are an online marketplace where trainers and instructors can rent fitness space from gyms and studios, by the hour.
The smaller gyms are willing as they can collect a small fee per usage or a monthly rental fee. A plus for that scenario is that once you build a rapport with the other trainers at that gym, they may ask you to sub for them on occasion for a percentage of their take. 60/40 is not uncommon for the split.
Here in the Minneapolis area, there are several small private studios that are willing to allow independent trainers to use their facility – some offer hourly rate, others monthly rate. In every one of these places, you are expected to bring your own clients, not prospect another trainer’s clients or gym members of the facility.
