Weekly E-Mail, March 1, 2009

We have received much favorable feedback regarding our updated group exercise class offerings.  While the JFKFFC Board & Management recognizes the passion and support for group exercise programming by user membership please be reminded that class and instructor selection are subject to change at any time at the discretion of management and not by individual members.  Across the fitness industry, memberships offering classes cost 3-5 times that which is charged at the JFKFFC.  One of management’s goals is to provide affordable certified professional instruction for a limited number of classes.  To support this endeavor we have recently made changes to our class offerings that reflect the desire to improve the quality, the consistency and the variety of class formats.  We will continue to make changes as necessary.

JFKFFC Group Exercise Class Update

While there will be no 11:30am group exercise class offered this Wednesday, February 3, there will be a 12:30 Yoga class taught by Lauren.  Class schedule for the rest of the week remains as it has been.  It is anticipated that a new class schedule will be approved, announced and posted by the end of the week – to commence either Monday, February 8th or Monday, February 15th.   The new schedule will continue to offer the same number of weekly classes: two lunchtime classes on Mon, Tues, Wed, and Thursday, with one class on Friday.  There will be some change in class instructors and class offerings.  Thank you for your patience!
