In these tough economic times we have been trying hard to improve the Bath & Racquet Fitness Club. We hope you have noticed some of the improvements; the locker rooms being retiled and redone, painting the club inside and outside, and a new logo on signs inside and outside the club to name a few.
We want to improve our group exercise schedule and classes. We are convinced the most effective way to achieve that goal is by offering Les Mills classes. The Les Mills contract that we entered into allows us to terminate their classes at any time. Our first goal is to offer 4 or 5 Les Mills Body Pump a week as part of our group exercise schedule. Starting on August 31st. This process was started this far in advance to make sure that our instructors and our members were not surprised by these changes.
We firmly believe that Les Mills will help us provide better classes. We have offered to help any instructor that will become a Les Mills instructor because we firmly believe it will make them a better group exercise instructor. And it is our strong wish that our instructors would take us up on the offer and be successful.
The question then becomes how do you decide and where do you place these Les Mills classes on our group exercise schedule. We do not have enough empty places on our group exercise schedule to place 4 classes. We will look very hard at prime time classes that do not have good numbers as opposed to bad time slots.
How do you determine which classes will change formats and possibly instructors? The most objective way that I can think of is class participation taking into consideration the time slot, a Monday 6 pm class should always be larger than a Thursday noon class. If the instructor is good they should have good participation. I would not understand why the best instructors at the Club would not have the best participation.
Also, having an additional survey about our instructors I think would be redundant. You vote every day who is your favorite instructors are by spending your valuable time attending a class. If you think we have a great class that you love and attend, but the class is not well attended because nobody knows about it. Spread the word. Tell others what a great class it is. Encourage them to join you.
Our sign listing the general class participation was not meant as a threat to you, our members or especially our instructors. But as an opportunity for our instructors to be aware how our members attend their classes compared to other instructors at the club. Giving them the opportunity and time to improve. Or to improve through further education with Les Mills.
I am sure there are going to be different opinions and I would love to hear yours. If you think there is a better way to rate our instructors please let us know. Or tell us who you think are our good and bad instructors. Please post your thoughts about at the bottom of the page and we will read them and post them on this web site. Please let us know if you do not want your name listed and we will make sure you comments if appropriate are anonymous. Our goal is strictly to make the Bath & Racquet Fitness Club better for you our members.
