1. Teaching in Our Studio

 

We at Personal Training Hub are committed to providing movement and wellbeing classes, workshops and trainings courses which are of an exceptional standard and quality. We want to create a beautiful, clean, warm and welcoming space which makes people feel good. In order to achieve this we are taking every care to ensure that the space and its environment remain clean and attractive. In addition, as an aspiring social enterprise we are committed to running the business with certain social and environmental principles at heart.

 

If you choose to teach at Personal Training Hub we ask the following

 

  1. That you are a well qualified and established teacher within your field. For the most part we will rely on personal recommendations for teachers to include in our permanent programme. Please supply a copy of your certificate(s) to keep on record. If you are recently qualified, we may also ask to see you teach before we include you in our programme.
  2. All teachers will be self-employed and are responsible for their own tax and insurance matters.
  3. You are required to hold your own personal and professional liability insurance with a reputable insurance company. If you do not have insurance, we can make suggestions. Please supply us with a copy of your liability insurance certificate when you make your booking with us. Personal Training Hub is not responsible for any injuries sustained during classes, rehearsals and workshops. Personal Training Hub carries Public Liability Insurance for the studio space only and not for your teaching.
  4. We ask that you consider embracing the social aims of the business in the following ways:

a. That any other established Personal Training Hub Teacher can attend your classes free of charge with prior agreement.

If you are running a class for which footwear is required, soft soled shoes which have not been worn outside are permitted e.g. dance or ballet shoes, slippers etc. Absolutely no high heels at any time as this will damage the floor. Please respect this rule. If the floor becomes soiled, then please brush and mop the floor with the eco friendly cleaning materials supplied.
