Am I responsible for providing a location or facility for my coaching session?


Yes, our coaches are responsible for finding a location or facility for their coaching sessions.
Sometimes a client will suggest a facility/location that is a convenient option. Coaches are welcome to train at a location of the client's choosing. However, in most cases, clients expect the coach to provide a training location.

We completely understand that securing a facility is one of the biggest obstacles to conducting a great coaching session. As a result, we're working hard to compile a list of recommended facilities and offer discounted access to partner facilities in the near future.
In the meantime, we recommend that you and find a local field or facility that can accommodate sessions (asking other coaches in your area or searching for facilities on the internet may yield some solid results).
We recommend that you inform us whether facility fees are included in your session rates. Many coaches on Coachability have found it effective to include facility fees in their session rates to compensate for any added costs. Another option is to specify that clients will have to pay a fee directly to the facility at the time of the session (for example, if the facility charges a guest fee).




Why Is It Important to Make Sure Bookings Are Made Through Coachability?


There are many reasons why it's important to make sure that a client books sessions with you through Coachability before training takes place. Your Coach score increases every time you complete a session through Coachability. This gives your profile a higher rank in the Coachability search results, helping you to get more bookings.
Coachability processes credit card payments from the client, so you never have to worry about asking for money from the client.
Coachability protects you with a 24-hour cancellation policy in case a client no-shows for a scheduled session, allowing you to be paid for the time you’ve set aside.
Coachability periodically offers discounts to your clients. If your client uses a Coachability discount, your earnings will stay the same!
