027 Turning Pro - How Trainers Should Set Rates

Listen to the whole episode by subscribing here

Are you a coach who is still making 4/9th for a personal training session without explanation from your boss? Are you a gym owner paying your employees 4/9ths just because you were told that was the ratio to use?

If you are still choosing your training rates based on an arbitrary number, chances are it is costing you more time and energy to fill your time slots.

In this episode Larry and Dr. Sean breakdown the math to set your floor and ceiling price based on your geographic location. We talk about setting expiration dates and design packages to create urgency, retain clients and most importantly, make more money.

5:00 - Setting your price
10:00 - You have to pay to play
15:00 - Filling your schedule
20:00 - Cost to the gym
25:00 - Navigating the splits

021 Turning Pro | What problem does your business solve?

 

What kind of business do you want to be?

Now ask yourself, does that align with the kind of business that you are running?

We see many gyms making the mistake of falling prey to the latest social media tactic before they even know the purpose of their message. If you’ve never sat down and figured out what problem you solve as a business and why you are unique in solving it, then your vision is muddy. 

In this episode, Dr. Sean walks you through an exercise he personally uses to audit himself and the business regularly. We give you the 3 questions you need to answer in order to create a clear message and differentiate yourself from the gym down the street. If you find that you are still chasing the top of the pyramid to increase your revenue and you're tired of utilizing “next hottest trend” then we urge you to revisit your business foundation.
