In house training-I will come to you. What do you think?
by Christina Leid
(Houma, LA )
I am chomping at the bits. I want to start my own business where i go to client's homes (particularly women).
Has anyone else had experience with this or any suggestions that could be of help to me? If so, please share.
I am through with gyms that make you follow a script for each client I want to do my own thing.
In Home Pricing
Perhaps I have just missed this but how do you determine what you are going to charge if you are training people in their home. It is an additional convenience. Do you have a trip charge, mileage or hourly rate for travel?
I know gyms in my area are charging around 50-80 average per hour
Personal Trainer Safety
I'm a certified trainer looking to start mobile personal training. Either clients can come to my home or I would go to theirs. I like the idea but I'm wondering how safe it is. Not necessarily in legal terms but having strangers come to my home and vice versa. Does anyone have any experience with this? Any insight would be appreciated.

Any suggestions on types of equipment to purchase if training out of clients homes and having to log equipment from place to place??
EX) dumbells (5,10,15 Lb or purchase 1 set of adjustable dumbell system like bowflex)
Fitness Boot Camps - Finding a location/ venue
I'm a 12 yr veteran of the US Marine Corps. I'm also certified through both ACE and ACT as a trainer. Everything is ready to launch for my business, but the only thing holding me back is finding a location or venue to host sessions. I've contacted a couple county parks commissions and briefly explained what I'm looking to do. I've asked them if there would be any issue if I had my clients meet me at that park to train. To date, I have not gotten a response. Does their silence indicate consent?
I'd be interested to know how other boot camp trainers went about finding a venue.
