FITx Staff and Payroll Guide
If your club or studio follows the FITx staff and payroll guide, we guarantee earnings between 30% and 40% net profit every month. Assuming your sales are in line because you’re using FITx white sheets, payroll costs will be the number one reason if your business is profitable or not profitable. You may interpret this as elementary or just common sense but the more you save in payroll, the more profitable your training business will be. Additionally, the more clients you can train with less trainers also equals more profit to the bottom line. It’s an exact one to one relationship. Save $1000 in payroll equals an additional $1000 in profit. Please don’t concern yourself about this statement sacrificing the quality of your program. You would be surprised how many clients you can effectively train with two or only one trainer in the building. Until you understand the entire FITx business system, please don’t compare this to your existing program or other programs you have seen. Only then will you see how programming, scheduling, and pay structure makes it all seamless and real.
Before will reveal how much you should pay your trainers, first let’s explain how two or only one trainer can effectively train all your clients. Adopting the FITx program means that all your clients purchase training from the club, not a trainer. At the point of sale, your clients are instructed that when they arrive for training they may be paired with whoever trainer is on the schedule. So, with that said, four clients don’t need four trainers on duty. One trainer in a half-hour semi-private session can train up to four clients, and one trainer during the same period in a one-hour group session can train up to fifteen clients. This equals the possibility of twenty three clients per hour. I shouldn’t have to do the math for you here, but an organized club using FITx training has the potential to generate $60,000 or more in revenue per month with only two trainers on duty.
With FITx everyone truly benefits. Imagine no glass ceiling and almost no risk. Your entire staff has the potential and incentive to earn higher wages every month, and at the same time while their assisting with record setting revenue, you’re realizing the benefit of massive profit margins.
The following represents a standard FITx payroll structure for an average size health club or studio:
- Startup trainers begin at $10/hour
