    • There are no surprises about how long the engagement will last
    • Both parties understand the scope of their responsibilities

    • What the start and end dates are

    As you might expect, Personal Training Agreements also include the typical language about the non-employer relationship between the parties, confidentiality, the method(s) of dispute resolution, and lastly, liability for losses. In the process of building your contract, you also can pick which state's laws will govern it. Additional custom edits are possible, as needed.
