I am really excited to become a Bellyfit instructor....however, so far on your site I have not seen any questions/answers pertaining to how much the Bellyfit instructor makes...which is perplexing me....how much per class would I make if I became a Bellyfit instructor....?? Is there a set fee ?
Thanks for the post and question! It looks like this was posted a while ago and we're sorry for the delay. This is a relatively new Forum system that our instructors have not fully adopted yet as they are still mostly using our Instructor-only Facebook group.
To answer your question, there is no set fee for Bellyfit instructors, it entirely depends on the facility that hires you. Alternatively, instructors can also rent their own space, such as a school gym, hall or private studio which could yield higher pay. There is a toss-up between these two options as renting your own facility could be more profitable, but it could also be more work to market and fill your classes.
I have asked some of our Instructors to leave their feedback on this topic also, so hopefully you'll see their responses soon.
Hi! It will largely depend on your area and fee structure you are set up with. I have two arrangements in my city where I teach, one facility pays me a flat rate of $50 per class regardless of how many drop ins I have, the other facility pays me 70% of fees taken in from registrants (pre-registered set). I can't say that this is "standard" for all instructors but hopefully others chime in on this thread to give you an idea of their income structure as well. Bear in mind most instructors are self employed and either run their own classes and rent a venue/profit share or are contracted in as instructors to a facility. Hope that helps! :)
I teach at the local Parks and Rec. dept. here in Northern Calif. The fee I charge is $50.00 per month for 2 classes per week and my cut is 60%. At gyms it is a flat fee for all instructors usually $20-$25 per class. I teach through the Senior Center locally and get a suggested donation of $4.00 per class. Most students will donate $5. I believe it really depends on what the market is, and how popular Bellyfit is.
Thanks for reminding me. As you know I working only on contract now, in two (very soon 3) fitness center in Oslo. I am rewarded between 300 nok and 450 nok per hour, (46,87 cad - 70,30 cad).
I could probably own twice of it if I did this for my self, but it would increase my expenses too.
Best regards and hugs from me,
Depends on where you are. A lot of gyms and studios may give you $4 to $5 per person with a maximum pay out of $50 per class. But they will also have a minimum amount of students who need to sign up. (IE 10 need to be registered before it will run) I have only made really low amounts. $15 to $24 per class.
