Re: The always slow class

Along the lines of what Sean says - most gyms start with too many classes because they are trying to compete on times with other gyms. People are more flexible then they let on if they want to do something.

Why not set up a reservation system? - if no-one reserves the class by 11 AM or something, the class is cancelled.

When I first opened I ran all of the class. My 6:30 AM group came Monday, Wednesday, Friday, Saturday - all of them, after a month of showing up to an empty gym, we set up Tuesday and Thursday by appointment only. They had to email me before 10 the night before. After about 2 months, I had the demand to bring it back full time. Now with so many billing software's offering registration systems, I think that would look more professional.
