If you’re an independent personal trainer in Manhattan, Murry Hill, Flatiron or Midtown East, you’ve probably heard about fitness studios who give private trainer access and allow professionals like you to use their facilities. You might also be wondering if you should take advantage of this offer or not and if you’ll get great value for your money if you do.
Well, the simple answer to these is: Yes, using the facilities of a fitness center like Julian Walker Studio is a great choice for you as a private personal trainer. By taking this step, you’ll get to enjoy two major benefits: flexibility and cost savings.
In the past, if you wanted to train your clients in a gym, you need to become an employee in that gym. There’s technically nothing wrong with being employed, but you have to admit that it can be stifling and won’t let you have full control over your schedule and earnings. It might not also be what you had in mind when you became a full-time personal trainer; more likely than not, you made this career move so you can become your own boss, not to work for a boss.
Fortunately, all of this has changed with the arrival of fitness studios that offer private trainer access. You’re not employed by these studios; in fact, you’re considered to be their client since you’re paying a fee to use their facilities. As a result, you’re not tied down to a contract and you don’t have to work there for a certain number of hours. The studios also won’t have a say about your fee structure, so you have the freedom to set your own prices. You won’t even have to give the studio a percentage of your earnings; just pay the fixed fee for each session and you’re good to go!
Of course, since you’re paying per session and not per week or per month, you and your clients can come and go as you please. You can have your workouts in the studio today; the next day, you can exercise at the park or go for a run in the woods. This flexibility lets you spice up your workouts and ensure you and your clients won’t get bored.
Using the facilities of a studio is one of the best ways to keep your business costs down. For one thing, you won’t have to rent your own gym space (which would have cost you hundreds of dollars per month) since you’re essentially renting the studio’s space on a more affordable per-hour and/or per-client basis. You also won’t need to fork out money for weights, kettlebells, TRX training ropes and webbing, and other kinds of exercise equipment — all of which can cost a substantial amount — since they are available at the studio. Because of these, you can run a successful personal training business and make a great impression on your clients without having to deal with huge overheads.
