    Today at the gym, one of the owners, who knows I'm a writer, approached me about writing copy for the gym's Web site and brochures, mostly just brief descriptions of the various classes and services.
    We haven't worked out the compensation yet, but it could be money or maybe bartering for some personal training or something like that.
    Has anyone done this sort of work and would you have any tips?

    Charge up the ass.. depending on your marker 50-70 bucks an hour is not out of the norm. Be fair, but be accurate.
    Problem I have if you do a flat rate is dickering on tweaking... If you charge per houry ou get what you put into it.
