Personal Trainer splits as an independent contract.

by David Sozua
(Jackson, CA)

I am a personal trainer in a small town roughly 2,000 people. I might have 1,200- 1,400 members in our facility. With a poor demographic and a older clientele of ages 65 and up that make up 19% of our community.

I am currently on a 35%-65% percent split with members who already exist at the gym prior to me starting my business and 25%-75% split for members i get in. OF course i get the bigger percentage of the two but could i possibly decrease that even more. Say to 20%?

What would be some ideal split based on the demographic as well as members.

Percentage
by: Anonymous

On the whole, depending on the market you are in, 20-25% is is a solid portion to pay the gym since they are in fact, bringing the clients to your doorstep.

Independent Trainer Salaries

by Jack
(Fresno, CA)

I have been an independent trainer for over a year and a half now and I enjoy it a lot. I started out as an in house trainer for a corporation and lasted for two years. I gained a lot of knowledge over those two years that benefit me now as an independent.

The biggest upside to being an independent is being your own boss. I make my own prices, schedule and never have to make a monthly quota. I set my prices at what I feel I am worth and because of the undercutting I found a price that was still higher than others but at the same time reasonable to explain why I was twenty dollars more than the next highest trainer. It's really important to believe in what you are putting out on the floor and stick to your pricing. I am a full time independent and wouldn't change my career for anything.

Need help
by: Torre Mastroianni

I'm looking to do independent training as well because I feel there is more money in that and one of the big reasons I want to get into PT is to be my own boss. One of my worries is when to train people seeing that most work a 9-5? Training in the morning and night limits the amount of people. Do you rent out space in a gym, do in home training, what are your hours usually, and how much do you pay monthly for health and dental insurance?

Homework
by: Anonymous

Wow That's great! Can you describe the homework that you give and why you do it and what kind of reaction clients have to it? That sounds like a great idea to let them know you care.
