Host a Course

Mbodies Academy invites all facilities, training schools or other organisations who would like to be involved with the delivery of one, some or all of our Brands, courses and workshops to contact us to discuss possibilities.

Unlike many Pilates and Fitness based training organisations we aim to be inclusive as opposed to exclusive and believe that too many organisations are forced, reluctantly, to create inferior ‘copy-and-paste’ workshops because they feel ‘shut-out’ by exclusive training organisations who become competitors rather than partners.

Where an organisation has its own database of clients and students we are delighted to work with that organisation to deliver our workshops by jointly marketing the workshops, providing a top quality trainer and all educational materials and relying on the hosting centre to manage all administrative aspects of the event.

We have a number of schemes available which allow cross branding of workshops and different levels of risk and reward for the hosting centre.

Standard Hosting Arrangement

The Hosting Organisation provides the venue - fully equipped to run the course.  By arrangement Mbodies may be able to provide some of the infrastructure or accessories needed.

Mbodies charges a non refundable Hosting charge of £300.00 to book any one period of hosting courses - this is regardless of the number of consecutive days of a course or combined courses.

The deposit must be paid BEFORE the course can be marketed by either party and there must be a minimum of 90 days between deposit paid and course start date.  This is to allow sufficient time to make the marketing a success.

There is then a day rate of  £700.00 per day which covers the Cost of Mbodies providing and delivering the course.  The host Centre will be responsible for 40p per mile, flights or  Second class Train fare travel costs and bed and breakfast facilities as appropriate for the tutor and the location of the course.

Finally there is a manual and Certification charge which is paid  - to cover the cost of production of manuals and certificates -  this is typically £10.00 - £30.00 per head per course title depending on number and size of manuals but in situations where there are large or multiple manuals it may be more.

With this arrangement Mbodies will agree the maximum number of delegates that a facility will hold -  we put a maximum number of delegates as 16 without further discussion.  We have run large hosted courses with 2 tutors to maintain quality on occasions - but day rate then increases to £1250.00 per day.

The Hosting centre takes all monies and markets the course jointly with Mbodies -  Mbodies provides a dedicated online booking portal with electronic payment facilities which can be pointed to in all marketing.

 

 

Payment of  Day Fees and manual / certification fees

The day fee proportion of the course is payable in 2 parts :-  50% one month following the initial booking and the final 50% one month before the course.

Failure to pay the instalments on time will result in cancellation of the course with no refunds for any payments made prior to cancellation.

One week prior to the course the hosting venue will supply details of all participants enrolled on the course to allow Mbodies to produce necessary paperwork, certificates etc and an Invoice will be sent for immediate payment.  Failure to pay the manual and certification fee promptly will result in students not receiving accreditation or certification until payment is received.

 

 

Shared Hosting Arrangement

This arrangement will only be offered if Mbodies believes that there is an opportunity to sell places directly from its own database and the timing of the course does not conflict with the companies own timetable.

The Hosting Organisation provides the venue - fully equipped to run the course.  By arrangement Mbodies may be able to provide some of the infrastructure or accessories needed.

the Hosting Centre has plenty of space (lets assume room for 16 people) but believes that it can only bring in 7 or 8 delegates through its own marketing and therefore wishes to reduce its exposure to risk.

Mbodies agrees to take  6 places on the course with the Hosting centre taking all other places (i.e. up to 10 places depending on agreed maximum numbers for the venue)

Mbodies charges a non refundable Hosting charge of £300.00 to book any one period of hosting courses - this is regardless of the number of consecutive days of a course or combined courses.

The deposit must be paid BEFORE the course can be marketed by either party and there must be a minimum of 90 days between deposit paid and course start date.  This is to allow sufficient time to make the marketing a success.

There is then a reduced day rate of  £400.00 per day which covers the Cost of Mbodies providing and delivering the course.  The host Centre will be responsible for 40p per mile, flights or  Second class Train fare travel costs and bed and breakfast facilities as appropriate for the tutor and the location of the course.

Finally there is a manual and Certification charge which is paid  - to cover the cost of production of manuals and certificates -  this is typically £10.00 - £30.00 per head per course title depending on number and size of manuals but in situations where there are large or multiple manuals it may be more.

 

With this arrangement Mbodies is able to advertise directly and take the money for 6 delegates that it chooses to bring to the course -  The hosting Centre can fill all remaining places.

The Hosting centre takes all monies for its courses and markets the course directly -  Mbodies provides a dedicated online booking portal with electronic payment facilities which can be pointed to all marketing and is limited to accept the maximum delegates allowed in the agreement.

Mbodies uses a second booking portal for its 6 places - but transfers its marketing efforts to fill the Hosting Organisations booking portal once its own 6 places are filled.

 

In-House repertoire training for existing/qualified instructors.

Where studios request group (3+ instructors) repertoire training of their staff and all staff hold an appropriate Health and Safety qualification or Apparatus certification for the kit being taught on - i.e. a  Mbodies Studio Apparatus Induction or equivalent.  The following rates apply.

1-6 hours  £125.00 per hour

8 hour day rate  £800.00

A certification rate of £10.00 per person applies and all tutor travel and per diem charges are on top.

Where individual Instructors or a pair of instructors seek Private / In-House Support - the hourly rate is £90.00 per hour for 1 instructor and £110.00 per hour for a duo -  this includes certification and normally takes place at the tutor's studio.

It is normal for the Studio owner or instructor to advise the Repertoire that they require to be taught and to own the manual from which the exercises will be taught.    If mbodies are requested to provide the manual there will be a fee for the manual.

It is not unusual for Studios to request consultancy support to plan repertoire, classes etc that will be taught in the in-house training - sometimes we are asked to prepare an inhouse manual etc.    the hourly rate for this work is £50.00 per hour. 

50% of the payment is taken at the time of booking 50% prior to the training and additional certificationa nd expeses charges will be invoiced on 14 day credit terms following the course -  certificates are supplied once this payment is received.
