Here are answers to other commonly asked questions about the Independent Trainer Program – FAQ’s.
What are the minimum certification requirements to register at the KINESIOLOGISTS.CA Studio (Surrey) as an Independent Trainer?
Answer: Initially, we’ll need to determine if you possess the correct certification(s) and are carrying the proper amount of insurance coverage. Many personal trainers believe they are fully certified and covered, but are not. We require copies of the following:
- Valid Personal Training Certification (BCRPA, NSCA, CSCS, ACE, etc.)
- Surrey Business License
- Current First Aid and CPR Certificate
- Minimum $2 Million Insurance as a Personal Trainer
May I train my clients at the KINESIOLOGISTS.CA – Studio (Kitsilano) as well?
Answer: At this time, no.
What is the fee to train my clients at the KINESIOLOGISTS.CA – Studio?
Answer: Currently, the fee is based upon a single client or 2 clients at the same session. The fee is collected prior to the sessions booked – no exceptions.
- Single Session (60 minute): $10.50+GST (begins January 1, 2017)
- Doubles Session (60 minute): $9/each = $18+GST (remains the same)
Here is a quick breakdown: If you charge your client $60 per training session, you will take home $50 of your fee (over 80%!). Many gyms currently pay the trainer 40% or less per session.
Additionally, there is no daily or monthly minimum amount once accepted into our Independent Trainer Program. There may be an opportunity to purchase bulk client training sessions, but these packages will come with an expiry date.
