An important prosperity scenario is expanding a personal training business by employing multiple personal trainers.
This is possible by hiring them as employees or by connecting them to the business as self employed contractors.
Naturally the consequences differ greatly. The risk is significantly higher if an entrepreneur hires one or more personal trainers. However, the income is also higher. The relationship between base salary and commission can be managed. Little specific information is present on the criteria for hiring someone or expanding the team. A good principle is to not grow and mature to soon. It is better to first build on the strategies mentioned previously before switching to having a lot of employees. So, an entrepreneur should first increase turnover per hour and then try to build up continuity with subscriptions for personal training. When working with a team, usually a small team of two to six people, the entrepreneur should make sure to divide the core tasks efficiently, making sure that everyone does the same thing, namely delivering sessions. Specialise the team in terms of two issues. The first concerns content: Make sure that every member has their own speciality, or better yet assemble a team of personal trainers with complimentary specialities. The second concerns the commercial dimension. Hire a few trainers who continuously recruit new clients in addition to delivering sessions.
