4 Tips to Manage Personal Training at Your Fitness Business

As a client-based business owner, you know the more services you offer at your gym means more income for both your business and your trainers. Personal Training can have a lot of moving parts that make the set up of the service a little complicated. We have created 4 quick tips to help you set up a system where you can quickly begin to offer private or semi-private training.

1. Set a Rate

This is completely dependent on what you believe is worth you or your trainers’ time. Your first step is to research private training rates in your area, base it off of those prices, and make sure you are in the right range to be competitive. Are you the only one offering private training? Do you offer clients to your employees? If you do, set the base rate, and then it is up to you whether you want to allow your trainers to give discounts (think family and friends specials) or charge more than the base pay (if they have more certifications or areas of expertise).

2. Decide on a Payout Rate

If you have a flat rate per hour no matter how many sessions in a package, you could set a dollar amount that goes to the business and the rest goes to the trainer. For example, $85/session = $15 goes to the business (to cover overhead) & $70 goes to the trainer.

If you have a system where the more sessions you purchase, the cheaper the session/per rate is OR you allow your trainers to adjust the base rate, you are better off with creating a %. This could look like 30% of the session goes to business and 70% goes to the trainer. This will keep it nice and even across the board.

3. Who pays who?

An all-in-one gym management system (may we suggest Wodify), will make this process way easier than you think. The client is able to purchase the package through the Online Sales Portal and the Membership Management feature keeps track of session count and attendance. You’re able to easily look at how many sessions the client attended at the end of the month and in return pay out your trainer with some simple math.

4. Leads

The final step to consider is what to do with leads. If you are getting leads using the businesses marketing expenses and handing them out to trainers, it’s a good idea to consider that when choosing a percentage payout. You can use lead services such as Bark, offer personal training specials with your existing clientele, or put more money into marketing for your newest service.
