I live, again I say we live, and also work as the organizer for the complementary fitness classes in our high rise building. We are located in a major city and I try to change up the “routine” classes regularly but have noticed many residents in the elevator asking we add more classes at post 8pm. Our 9 plus year experience has lent us to a very lax show at this time, has the industry changed and we missed it? Many of our one on one’s take this time slot they pay and are committed… are we missing the later night exercise groupies that need motivation? Or is this just a conversation starter so we welcome them into the earlier time slots with out remorse….
Three ways that I recommended trying are:
Class Demo: This will help see if people will show for the class and if the class is appropriate for that time period.
Group Exercise Survey: This will help determine if people are interested in night classes and will also see what classes are of interest.
Paid Classes: This can be a small fee but will help keep people honest with attending class, mainly due to the fact that they are paying.
