I am having a big problem here. And please note before you reply I cannot change gyms. I am an adult and this gym is the only one that offers an adult class it is only 1 hour a week one night a week and they refuse to open another class at this point. The next closest gym that offers adult classes is several hundreds of miles from me. Anyways, every week the class is growing in numbers last week there were 18 people! We have 2 coaches that teach the class. They always get the class started 5 minutes late and end it a couple minutes early. Lately they have had problems keeping track of attendance and have been having to do a role call and write peoples names in this takes up at least another 5 minutes. We stretch for 15 minutes (which I know we have to do) but after all that it leaves about 32 minutes left for actual class, this is split between 2 events so about 16 minutes for each divided between 9 people is less than 2 minutes for each person on each event. I want to know as gym owners, coaches and parents where do you think the line should be drawn? How many people max are allowed in your classes? Also do you think it would be rude of me to ask the owner if they could lengthen the class? It is my only option right now and I don't want to tick off the owner. Should I even be as bold as to raise my concerns with her? Sorry for the long post! Any replies are much appreciated!
