With the first Metafit trial session at Caloundra on NOV 7 completed, I have breathed a little sigh of relief. Surprisingly I wasn’t particularly nervous and I was surrounded with lovely words of support leading up to the event and friends on the day. I spoke with my cuzzie just this week and she said that when starting a new business each day bring its challenges. In that she meant that you can’t necessarily plan for what will happen (although you can prepare) but rather allow the days to roll towards you and see what each day requires. I saw this in action while preparing for this first Metafit event. Promotion, flyers, shirts, facebook events, web updates, word of mouth etc. Finally on the day before, I decided my music arrangements wasn’t robust enough and I wanted more redundancy, so I went out and bought a Bluetooth speaker. The day itself went of with out a hitch and was a mere formality. To me it was just a Kung Fu power training session…People arrived, we warmed up, we trained, we warmed down and stretched. The structure of the Metafit class is brilliantly easy. The oral commands make running the class a breeze. The music is upbeat and energetic and a pleasure to work out to.
Some things for future consideration; data collection, merchandise sales ( where and how ), exit surveys/feedback. Anyhow looking forward to Friday 13th at Cleveland. It will be a tougher assignment as I will potentially have fewer friends on hand and will have to sell the event much more thoroughly to make it a success. It’s what I’ve signed up for, but highlights the “behind the scenes” work that goes on which will make these events and ultimately me a success.
Thanks to Luke, Janelle, Dave and Phil for your efforts and support on the day.
