Personal Training: Rates

Does anyone do their own training, by that I mean not through employment at a gym? I am interested in what rates you charge per hour, and if you use contracts and so forth.

I own a private faciity. Charge 50/hour. I do not make clients sign a contract although, they do sign waivers, fill out health and background forms and insurance forms. That may change in the near future as I am working with more young athletes and have found that making them meet attendance requirements is necessary for their success.
