Another slow day in the gym.The 9am class was pretty well attended and there were some at 2;30 but the rest of the day? So I had planned a great rant about commitment, mine and yours but I think I'll leave it to this, if you have been a regular member and are not coming back, please let me know. Even if its through e-mail or some other form if you don't want to tell me directly. It is difficult to budget a business (and a family) based on whether your income is going to change in the coming month(s). I have been advised on several occasions to employ contracts for this very reason but am reluctant. Maybe its time? Enough said for now.
I have been remiss in recognizing a very important person in this venture-Penny. She supports this passion of mine (ours) and has expended a great deal of time and resources into it. Thank you…
It was good to have Monica back in the gym this morning with Jason. Its been a long time and I wonder if they noticed a difference in format/workouts. With that said, I'd like some feed back from those that have been in in the last month or so on the change in focus at CFCV. If any of you follow Dutch, Robb Wolf and critically look at other affiliate's wod's, you should see a shift to a more strength focused program with shorter metcons and a purpose. I would like to think we have improved in those elements recently and will continue on our quest of learning the Oly lifts and other skill related movements. If the change in programming is the reason for a drop in attendance I'd like to know.
I really hate to go off like this and to those that are regular committed members its not about you….. I just get antsy the last week of the month, maybe it's PMS?
By the way the replacement shirts are in and they're nice. And yes, we have smalls. I also updated the schedule through November 30th. I added a free workout on two Sundays for friends and families at the suggestion of Kara. I am also mulling over the long debated price increase for new members along with an extended On Ramp program to replace the foundations sessions. I realize that the foundation sessions are a turnoff for some but frankly, it is not fair to you the established members for newbies to receive all the coaching during workouts until they're up to speed, And I don't believe 4 sessions adequately prepares most for regular classes especially as we learn more technical stuff like the Oly lifts and their progressions.
