They are actually doing a 'spring cleaning' in the gym. I know a few of instructor received sms from the management, asking them to work harder to achieve the target head count. Or else they will be replaced or the class will be canceled. Luckily so far i haven't receive any ( finger crossed ).
But sometimes it's a bit unfair to ask the instructor to take full responsibility on the attendance. Cos the are so many other factors : schedule, location and most important ... MEMBERS. I know some good instructor with low attendance. Why? Bcos this instructor ( A ) is 'not' a friend to their 'other favorite' instructor. So to show the support to their favorite instructor, either they boycott A's class or complain about him.
Scary kan? The real life in the gym. I am a kiasu & kiasi person, so i always check with the management if there's any complaints about me. And i'm very grateful to have the manager who always supported me. She told me that :
compliments are for encouragements
complaints are for improvements
Thanks Annie, that's a very good advise and good direction for me. :)
