JC Recurrent meetings
First and Foremost - We have a trainer portal! Jacey & Taylor Green are continually updating and adding videos to help build your classes and unify our methodology further.
Visit janedo.com and at the bottom you will find the tab to click that reads "Trainer Portal" on the next screen type in the password: iheartjane!
So excited about this studio! Super welcoming, fun and energizing environment. Today I went to their amazing barre naked class and didn’t have time to pre-register. The class was full (duh because it's awesome) but the teacher made the extra effort to get me in on the holiday weekend! Extra shout out to their tramp stamp class where you jump on mini trampolines! 5 stars for workout and staff!
Always want to do our best to accomodate a walk-in without compromising the quality of class.
Troubleshooting the internet - if necessary, unplug the black plug at the back of the router, let it sit for 10 seconds and plug back in. The router information is written on a blue post it next to the laptop. Our network currently is FiOS-N2PZ2 until we correct our Netgear router. As a back up, download your playlists before arriving in the event you need to use your phone for class.
*** if the iPhone cord is broken, must let me know as I do not use. There is a back up connector in the top drawer under the desk.
*** please keep iTouch plugged in at all times, unless the iPad needs recharging. At the conclusion of your classes take care to be sure devices are powering up for next class or set of classes. Trainers should not walk into dead devices for their classes.
***weights, mats, etc. I know class transitions are quick, but it takes less than a minute to ensure the studio is tidy for the next class coming in. I would rather you take the time to organize weights so they aren’t falling all over then risk a client having a weight drop on their foot.
Troubleshooting a trampoline - how to fix the inside leg *working on shooting a video and uploading to the trainer portal
New mic - ends of the ear are breaking and coming off. I have glued and taped, however please please be gentle! This mic is significantly more expensive than the last and seems to work really well for us as far as sound/quality issues go.
Coverage - plenty of staff in JC where we should be able to help each other out when needed. Please be courteous if you are asking for coverage you are returning the favor. Facebook group - Jane DO Instructor Page: post here looking for coverage in an effort to lessen the load on inbox and texts.
Basic MindBody knowledge - visit the trainer portal and see "MindBody University"
Continue to get to know clients’ names - TONS of new clients every week and a ton of opportunity to build your class numbers and get some private training clients! Use those hands on adjustments, start a dialogue at the end of class, it will only benefit you in the long run and potentially snag you some more work. In hearing classes while working in the studio, there is less and less of name calling and this is what we want to continue to foster to set us apart from other fitness boutiques.
Floor Play - sneakers ONLY. Set up around the perimeter until we are better transitioned with all clients wearing sneakers. 20 with half sneakers half socks is TIGHT. If someone comes in their socks, say not a problem at all, for future you may want to consider sneakers to provide greater stability for your ankle during strength training.
Lights stay as they were for Barre Naked (play around with less use of domes); BLUES for Cool Down
Educate clients that we made a promise to evolve our methodology and keep our clients constantly challenged. Traditional barre classes incorporate up to 5lb weights and we are currently using 8s, 10s and 12s
Use Rosewater spray
Keep the intensity of the cardios up; Be sure you are breaking the content down as you would for DYAO. Try not to take too much time breaking down, but still give clients the opportunity to catch on. Play around with staying in an interval (ex: fast feet, high knees, hit the deck) to keep intensity up
Be sure you are properly demonstrating sets and breaking them down so they are well understood. Some reviews read that we are moving too fast and clients are unable to understand sequencing
Get them moving right away - do not explain everything in the set, they won’t remember anyway! Go right into it and do the whole set with them the first time through then begin to verbally cue as they continue to move
Get creative, use on trampoline - rule of prop inclusion, must be used 3 times in class
- With the addition of Train Jane, don’t forget to incorporate these into Floor Play & Tramp again!
I will continue to be jumping into classes where I can and eliciting feedback about new classes. This is in an effort to keep our methodology consistent across the board and make our team the strongest we can be to continue to pack our classes in Jersey City.
