Personal Trainer Salary Advice

by Thor Holt
(Edinburgh, Scotland)

As a Trainer and Coach of 13 Years experience (earning $80,000+ per year) my tip is charge top dollar and people will assume you are worth it, and charge everyone the same, new or old client. Competing on price is not healthy unless you want to end up outsourced to china!

Worth The Fee?
by: Matt

Thor - in general I would agree with you....one of the best pieces of advice i've gotten is to charge as much as you can say without breaking a smile! The caveat to that is that a trainer without experience or background that justifies a high fee is probably setting themselves up for trouble. If you're straight out of a certification program you're probably not worth $100/hr - you may get it initially, but client turn over will be habitually high. I charge a good rate ($75-100/hr) and retain my clients for years at a time - almost zero turnover. But I'm also continually learning and highly focused on service (which, unfortunatly, sets me far apart from the everyday trainer). Get that money...but earn that money!
