Most class are not under $200 as they can be more. I asked the same question when i started as a trainer on how much should i charge? My answer was the more you know in this field you are what you know to charge and it’s true we are the clients needs. You could be reasonable , after all we as personal trainer depend on you for new ideas to upgrade our knowledge.
it looks to me that you are an employee at a gym, and I wonder whether you will teach this class in that capacity and will be paid by the gym or as an ‘outside source’ and the other trainers are to pay you.
One of the questions that I would ask before I would pay to take your class is whether you are a continued education provider towards any of my certifications. You do not indicate whether you are or not, and your profile did not indicate it. To me, this is an important distinction in what I would be willing to pay.
Hi Raelene. I agree with the comments above. Also, there is a huge difference between offering an ‘In-Service’ training or class for employees at your facility, as an EMPLOYEE, versus being asked to offer a Continuing Education course or work (towards continuing education credits) as an INDEPENDENT CONTRACTOR. Which are you being asked to do here? I think that once you clarify exactly what you’re being asked to provide, AND in what capacity, then you can begin to negotiate a pricing for the course.
Pricing for anything depends on a lot of factors. One very important factor is the ‘utility of what’s being paid for.’ In this instance someone would pay more for a class that can be used to satisfy some of their continuing education requirements versus a class that simply offers professional development/information.
I hope that this helps.
