I just got a job at a gymnastics place in a small little town and there aren't any other gyms for like 60 miles. I've been there for a week now and I just don't feel like I have the same coaching style as they do. I want to be able to coach gymnastics but I can't seem to make a compromise with my coaching style. They are very laid back and I have never been part of a gym that has been this laid back. It's not that they don't do their job because they do; they meet the needs of the area. I guess that I am just used to a team structure and they are very rec. based. Once again, nothing wrong with that just something I am not used to. I never really coached rec. classes so I am almost at a loss for how to even coach a rec. class. I need the job because I need the money. I only have 7 hours a week there and I need about 15 to 17 hours to break even with all my expenses. I am moving in December when the semester is over so I will have only been there for 4 months. I need more hours so I have been looking for another job. If I do get another job, should I try to work both or should I stay at the gym? I really need more hours and more money and I don't really like the way the gym is run, just in my personally opinion and previous personal experience working at other gyms. Any advice?
