Class Times and Coaches

We’ve heard the following from quite a few athletes since moving to the double class system (i.e. two WOD classes that start at the same time).  “It’s just so hard to choose!  I feel like I’m picking sides when I have to choose one coach over another.  This isn’t fair!  Do I chose Zac or Shane, or Nicole or Ryan?!”

We thought a little explanation and background might quell some of the sign-up woes.  We also wanted to take this time to run everyone through the class sign-up system so we’re all on the same page.

First and foremost, the coaches don’t see the new system as a class sign-up competition of any sort.  And we don’t feel bad when we’re the coach with the fewer sign-ups.  We voted amongst ourselves to move to the double scheduling system for a variety of reasons knowing that we wouldn’t always have an equal number of people.  Among the many reasons we enjoy this system are organization, ability for us to see more athletes, variety of coaching styles and exposure for athletes, and the fact that there’s a great organized energy of two classes operating simultaneously toward the same workout.

Second, a few reminders on the class sign-up system.  I guess, even before that, thanks for your feedback and help over the past few months!  Sunday classes!?  Who would have thought you guys would come out in droves for a Sunday AM WOD!  Thanks.  Remember when signing up for a group class to look and see if there’s a second class at the same time.  We still have a few people putting themselves on a waitlist for a class that has a second WOD at the same time with available spots.  Keep up the great work canceling yourself out of class if you are unable to attend.  Doing this allows other folks to take your spot and helps everyone in the Roots community get in their workout.
