Building that January timetable - Guilt Free

It’s a toughie, deciding what you should put or keep on your timetable for January, especially this January in particular.

I’ve had a lot of messages from instructors over the last few weeks wanting to talk through what their next steps should be, so I wanted to consolidate the things we talked about to make it easier to decision-make.

I know it's tough being the decision-maker, I'm right there with you, but it's important that you build the life that you want and are able to help folk feel fit & healthy in a way that is in line with your goals and skills.

1. What are your ultimate goals?

If you see yourself teaching online v teaching in the community, this will shape what you choose to do with your virtual offerings after Christmas. Likewise, if you have a burning urge to teach a certain class style eventually, then what you put on your timetable now will gradually funnel your clients toward that. For example, let’s say eventually you want to teach weights, then perhaps some Booty or abs style bodyweight classes would be a great addition to start that journey. Take 5 minutes and a notepad and write down where you see your classes going, working back from there may help you outline what your timetable needs to look like now.

2. What is your profit/loss on each class?

Yeah yeah, I know, we don’t like to talk about money. But we can’t critically evaluate where we are and what we can financially sustain unless we have a clear picture of what is going on in our Stripe account. If you have a membership model this may be a little more difficult to decipher, but using your class numbers will definitely help with that decision making.

3. What is costing you the most money?

It could be a venue cost, equipment cost, professional fees. If something is costing you more money in the background but isn’t bringing in the revenue, this might be something that you need to bear in mind as you put together the ultimate timetable. Would changing venue help reduce those outgoings?
