Beginning a personal training service at our gym. Any input as to whether to hire trainers as gym employees or independent contr

I have been asked to research adding personal training services to our Rec Center's offerings. We are not a private gym, but operated by the city. I would love to hear from directors and managers about how your PT services work (especially from the public sector). I am weighing the pros and cons of hiring PTs as City employees whom we would pay hourly and independent contractors who we would take a percentage of their PT fees. Any insights/advice would be much appreciated. Thanks!
