Yogi’s take on Romeoville Life Time Fitness Management….an open letter:
I was disappointed to hear that you are canceling the Thursday night yoga classes at 8:00pm. I would like to ask you to please, please reconsider. Nadja’s class is by far the best yoga class you have on the schedule. It is unique and offers a different experience compared to the usual vinyasa classes. The regular attendees of the class can attest to how much this class contributes to their fitness routine as well as their ability to get a good night’s sleep. It is a fantastic option for those of us that due to work and family commitments can’t make it to the gym until 8:00 at night, and/or do not want to do a cardio class at 8:00 pm.
I understand that Life Time is in the business of making money and that you do not want to have under-attended classes but I think that if you helped Nadja promote the class we would see more attendees. Canceling at this time seems a bit premature to both Nadja and those of those that regularly attend as she has only had the class for a short time, of which there were many classes that were canceled by Life Time (e.g. Halloween, Thanksgiving). Surely Life Time is not losing that much money with just one yoga class.
We have been members of Life Time for 2.5 years and in that time we have watched the yoga program grow. It would be a shame to lose a great class and a great instructor just due to lack of marketing of the class. I work out at other Life Time gyms and they offer and promote many different types of yoga, so I don’t understand why our home gym in Romeoville is not doing the same?
Since tomorrow night is our last night I would like to invite you to join us so that you can experience for yourself the gap that would be created by canceling the class. Again I respectfully ask that you reconsider canceling this class as it is a meaningful part of our fitness program.
Thursday Night Yogi’s
