A few things to note:
Add Training Locations: In the Travel section, indicate if you are willing to travel to do a session. Some clients may request to meet at a location closer to them, but you are not required to do so. By selecting that you are not willing to travel, you are indicating that all sessions will take place at one of your listed training locations. Next, add a training location; you can add multiple locations, but only the top 3 will be visible to potential clients.
You can use parks, churches, high school gyms, or other out of the box places to run a good session. Asking other coaches in your area or searching for facilities on the internet may yield some great results as well. You do not need a lot of space or a brand new facility to hold a great session!
Add your availability: Set your general availability and specific availability.
My Details: In the My Details section, you will indicate whether there is a cost to use the facility where you hold your sessions. If there is, you can let the client know here whether the facility fee is included in your CoachUp rate or if the client should expect to pay more to use the facility at the time of the session.
Testimonials: Obtain a quote from colleagues, athletes, or parents of athletes that you have coached. We have found that coaches with testimonials attract more clients.
Set up your payment information
To review your pricing options, go to your Packages tab. Setting your session length and duration will be a little different depending on your membership type.
