Market? Goals?
by: Tom

Start by determining how much you want to make in a month. Divide that by how many hours per week you want to/feel you can work. What does that hourly rate come out to? Then, how does that compare with the average rate in the market you are working in. Finally, don't undercut too much. If you're good at what you do get paid for it. If you are very experienced go 10% above the market average, if not, maybe 10% below.

Your price
by: Darwin Fitness

Hi,

I believe that 2 factors should guide you:

1/ an analysis of your local market. You'll find some info on the web, surfing on local PT websites but mostly by talking to PT because the price info is not often online. Make phone calls to PT and pretend you are a potential client if you don't have any friend on this field. This study should give you a range.

2/ give a discount to long term clients who are ready to purchase a big number of sessions. That's what I do and it works you can check out my site for inspiration www.darwin-fitness.com

Good luck, JS @ http://www.darwin-fitness.com
