Interesting Question

Wednesday, November 10, 2010

Each week, there are a few Sparkers that get gather at NKC Community Ctr for a Beach Body work out. It's totally free, yet there are only a handful of us there. Then we were talking about me teaching line dancing at the gym I work at & other classes available there. The classes are $3 each or most individuals pay $10 monthly (that includes all classes and karate.) We are part of a not for profit clinic and run on a sliding scale for all of our fees.

The question is: Why is it that when classes are free or are very inexpensive, people don't take advantage of them?

My thought: You get what you pay for. Whatever the reason, it just really doesn't make sense to me! emoticon

We did have a great time doing the P90X with the Sparkers!!! Thanks Amanda!!!

Game Plan:
client at 9
client at 10:30
home for a while...go tan!!! WooHoo!!!
client 3
couple at 5
train Melissa on her job!!!!

1. Fun dancing
2. Great yoga class this morning!!
3. Enjoyed class tonight!
4. Going to bed early!!!

Strong Mind, Strong Body, Stay the Course!

    That is a good question! At my job, we offer certain programs for free and we are plagued with no-shows and other problems. I think if people don't have a large amount of money invested in something, they don't value it as highly as something that is free or inexpensive.

    As far as working out goes, I think a lot of folks on SP tend to feel self-conscious about working out in front of others, or feel intimidated that they won't be able to keep up or are shy about actually meeting people face to face (and any number of reasons you can think of).

    It is kind of puzzling, especially because right now I WANT to come work out but the doc is saying no until my tests are finished. Ugh!
