Is the webinar happening? Strange
My name is Reno. I am a personal trainer looking forward to viewing this webinar. Who can see this message?
I can see it Rena
I wonder why they aree late??
Did the webinar begin yet?
Okay, I thought I was the only one waiting for the webinar to begin. There are five (5) participants in this webinar. I am also here with my co-worker Mara. Mara says hello to the group.
Yes what is going on???
We are all waiting for SARA KOOPERMAN. Is she ready to connect?
I felt the reverb too.
When is the webinar going to begin ?
When is the webinar going to begin folks?
I just reread it and it says this...TODAY, @6pm EST is the April WIFA Webinar, "Trends in Fitness Programming," led by Sara Kooperman open to all!
So I am 3pm PST. I guess hey changed it
What time does it start Los Angeles time?
Feel free to say hello
ANY INDOOR CYCLING CETIFICATION ??
Is this only for women? I am a man. Let me if that is cool?
Hi MacBook: You are welcome to listen in, the WIFA association is a womens association for membership. We will be talking about all sorts of trends today.
where is the industry heading with prechoregraphed formats?
can you reiterate that website?
Who doesn't know Sara?
congratulations Sara! I can relate
canfitpro as well.
Love, love, love this intel!
Such good intel!
It is amazing!! :)
and with small group training you can charge extra for the more personalized experience. Revenue!
music, now that’s fascinating to study!
Sara - Have you seen the demographics of who attends SCW change over the years?
Allison I will be sure to ask your question!
Our current most attended classes are the express classes!
"Love the weirdos!"
PHIT would cover any prevention costs...classes, programs, little league fees - not just club membership. It would exclude tennis shoes and equipment
thanks for sharing this PowerPoint with us!
the next big thing will be brain fitness as the aging population
struggles with dealing with Alzheimer’s
we need a certification on fitness and Alzheimer’s.
How is instructor compensation evolving? What is trending for health clubs?
active agers is not Alzheimer’s
we need to address this it’s huge
Any ideas for clubs/studios on recruiting instructors? I love that the average age of SCW attendees have grown though I worry about the next group of industry professionals
I believe that the way Group Fitness instructors is being paid is changing and is "performance based" (based on how they fill their classes).
Pay for Performance
I wish to thank you. I must run!
Glad to see so many fabulous women on this webinar!
Our trainers have moved to performance based incentive but our group fitness payscale hasn't not gotten there yet.
I would love to send canfitpro members to a WIFA job board!
For a university setting we teach a Group Fitness instructor training course. We cover step, kickboxing, core, strength, cycle, yoga , pilates and water. Should we stop training step?
i wish was case, but not the facilities around me - all the big boxes and gyms here in DC metro area have set rate. Unless you are at a boutique it is rare to find a commission based group x class
not many clubs know how to pay instructors in their systems that way (if they don’t have mind body)
Thats how I run my studio: base pay and bonuses based on number of people in classes
Thank you so much for this information. It was EXTREMELY helpful and useful!
Excellent to hear that opportunities can be shared via a WIFA platform!
Great job Sara! Thank you!!!
Amazing sara! Thank you!!!
