Offering personal training is a great method to increase your income whether you own a huge gym, a sports facility, or an individual fitness brand. That is why we have designed a basic personal training contract (PDF and Word) that your organisation may use again and time again to earn additional customers and money.
A personal trainer is someone who has obtained credentials confirming their ability to conduct safe and effective training programmes to individuals and groups.
Personal trainers can work for themselves, with their own clientele, or for a fitness facility, such as a gym. Personal trainers are frequently hired by gyms to provide training services to consumers.
A personal training contract is a legal agreement between a firm (institution) and a customer that specifies the terms and circumstances under which personal training services are provided.
A personal training contract contains critical information regarding the client relationship, such as the services to be offered, the length of each training session, the cost of each session, and how to cancel the agreement.
Companies, trainers, and customers are liable to litigation if requirements (including a written contract) for personal training services are not established.
A personal training contract agreement guarantees that all parties, including the company, the client, and the trainer, fulfil their duties in order to increase the likelihood of a successful partnership.
After all, clients are paying you to assist them in reaching their fitness objectives, and a contract helps to manage this process equitably.
When employing a personal training agreement, follow these best practices.
Although it may not appear to be so on the surface, your PT training contract may be utilised as a sales tool. The three recommended practices listed below will help you get the most out of your agreement.
Before you can obtain more PT clients, you need to build brand recognition for your company. Prospective clients should be made aware of the key provisions of your contract through exposure to your marketing materials.
For example, collaborate with your team to define how long each session will go, how much you'll charge, and what basic services you'll provide.
Take the terms of your contract and begin communicating them at your gym, on social media, to your email list, and so on.
Customers want to know how you arrange your training upfront so they can determine whether they want to meet with your team to explore the possibility further.
Once you've been able to create more leads for your training company, it's time to put your agreement to work and lock in additional clients.
As a firm, it is most typical for your trainers to present client proposals since they have a better understanding of how they can assist clients. Alternatively, having a specialised sales staff to promote your training services is not unusual.
Regardless of who is pitching, your team's ability to convert clients will determine how well discovery sessions are conducted.
These are free visits with prospective clients to learn about their fitness goals and experiences so that you may include relevant items in your contract.
The success of your sales ability is determined by how well your team can provide appropriate services depending on your client's goals. Here is a collection of questions to assist your staff in better understanding your potential personal training clients.
Request that your staff utilise a combination of the questions listed above to elicit as much comprehensive information as possible from prospective clients. You may then construct highly compelling bids that contain related services, enhancing your conversion rate.
You've now utilised your personal training agreement form to generate leads and develop tailored services. It is now time to show your contract to clients in order for them to sign up for your programmes.
It's crucial to time the presentation of your PT contract correctly since you don't want to come out as overly forceful or formal, but you also don't want to leave it too late and lose momentum.
After you've completed a client questionnaire or discovery session, the optimum moment to deliver the contract is after you've completed a customer questionnaire or discovery session. It is at this time that you will devise a strategy to assist your customer in reaching their objectives. It's also a good opportunity to go through the rules and conditions for how your firm handles personal training.
If your clients are not ready to sign the contract when you deliver your training plan, your agreement will serve as a valuable reference document when you follow up with them. Simply asking potential consumers, "Do you have any questions regarding the contract?" helps you to elicit objections and reservations about your conditions, allowing you to have everyone on the same page.
