Do you charge extra for designing workouts for your clients?

by Gina
(USA)

Quick snapshot of my business, I left a big box gym in November of 2014 to start my own business. We offer mobile physical therapy and mobile and in studio personal training. As the trainer I specialize in 55+ corrective exercise, and functional one to one and small group training.
I would love your opinion on pricing of my packages. I currently sell my sessions in packages. Five 45 minute small group sessions for $100. (4-5 members per class)
Twelve 45 minute sessions for $540. and twenty four 45 minute one to one sessions for $840. In home sessions are priced higher for travel time.

I design programs to meet client's goals. I use a subscription to a workout builder program that I can design exercise programs that include tips and video for each exercise. Side note, this subscription comes with a yearly fee for me but has been a life saver! They are digital and can also be printed out from pdf format.

Client's ask me from time to time if I would send them the digital programs that I design so they can perform the workouts outside of our sessions which is a good thing, but here's where I need your opinion.... would you charge for the exercise programs?

Would you charge two different package prices, one package just training and one package including both training and exercise programs at a higher price?

Also, would you put an expiration date on your training contracts to keep cancellations down to a minimum?

Thank you for your time and comments, I really appreciate it!

hi Gina , first of all i cant comment on your pricing because i dont know what state your in ? some markets are much higher then others . If you are good dont sell yourself short however stay competitive and you will keep your clients. next i would absolutely charge extra for designing a program ,that is a real plus to anyone and they can keep that and try and train on their own even though we all know they wouldnt be as good as if you train them ! i would charge anywhere from 50-100 for that.again depending on what market you are in.Next yes put an expiration date on everything ,or clients will take advantage,try to put policies in place before you begin as harder to change after ! would you mind sharing that program subscription website ? i would love to take a look at that . susan
