I’m a full time gym manager and I don’t have an extensive training schedule. I’d like to do SGT to maximize the return on my time investment. I plan to meet with my class twice per week – same time and day each week. One person wants to start training, but I hesitate to start until I have at least my minimum number of participants enrolled. Should I tell her I need to wait for more people to enroll? Naturally, I’m reducing the per person rate for SGT, so I definitely don’t want to end up doing one-on-one traininig when it’s supposed to be SGT. How would you all handle this situation?
How have you marketed the class? If you teach any other classes you could announce the new small group training and hold a demonstration or two. Visibly seeing others doing the new class may generate interest and excitement in the new program.
It’s best to wait until you have the minimum amount enrolled in the class, but do announce it, advertise it, post on social media forums, and get them excited about it.
