A co-worker of mine who is in great shape (but a bit too tiny) wants to put on some mass. Anyways last week she asks me if I can train her.
The plan is two sessions per week, about 30-40 minutes each. I'm not a certified trainer, so I wouldn't dream of charging anything close to those kind of rates, but she's brought up compensating me several times now, and I really have no idea what to ask for in terms of compensation.
I'm also tracking all her reps, her weight, and keeping them in an excel table so she can track her progress, helping her workout a diet plan etc.
I've thought something like $10/session. That would add up to $80/mo and would be enough to pay off my gym membership. But that maybe on the low end?
I was in a very similar situation, although swap mass with strength.
I told her she would pay the same gym dues we all do (we rant a private gym). Since she is a friend I didn't feel like charging her, but she takes me out for lunch at least once a week. Occasionally she'll pick up a drink or two if we are out on the town or something.
I guess it depends on if you are close outside of work or are simply just co-workers.

I charge $55/hour to train people. However, that is how I make a living. Careful on training people while not being insured. Be sure to trust them to the fullest because if you hurt them they can easily sue you. Also if the gym staff notices you servicing personal training to someone with out their permission or working for them they might say something to you so don't make it obvious.
My main concern has actually been about the gym saying something, but I don't plan on training anyone else there for money. Plus if they ask I could always tell them I'm helping out a co-worker/friend.
She's 45 and I'm 24, we talk at work pretty regularly and whatnot but I don't know if I'd be going out for lunch or anything like that anytime soon.Originally Posted by kzk464s

I would probably charge no more than $20 per session if it was someone I knew personally.
Is she cute? If so then I think a non-cash agreement would be best.
Throw it in her, and consider it even.

throw it in her and $10/hr imo
Haha these replies are hilarious. Pretty expected, but still hilarious.
She actually brought up payment yesterday and asked if $20/session was reasonable. I thoroughly agreed.
I'm going to make Thomas train my girl and pay him in cookies and tobacco.
