Remember to have your classes participate in the December monthly challenge!


December 3rd, 2018

The monthly adult challenge for December is Burpees over the Gift! Adult students must put a foam block down on the ground and do a burpee while facing the foam block “gift” then jump over the foam block and do another burpee. The goal is to see how many of these they can do in one minute.

Hope you all had a nice holiday!


November 19th, 2018

On Monday 11/19/2018 we will be implementing our new electronic check-in system. There are Ipads located at various locations around the gym: WMF, EMF, outside the Office, and the Outback. We will be getting an Ipad for downstairs in the near future.


All of these Ipads have the MindBody Check-in App on the Home Screens. It looks like this:

I will be sending out an email to all of our Monthly Unlimited Students letting them know the check-in process. Students should be checking themselves in using the Ipad outside of the office. You as coaches need to check the app once the class has started to make sure every student has in fact signed up for class and checked themselves in. If there is a student on the floor that has not signed themselves in please direct them to the Ipad outside of the office and let them do it themselves. Please do not do it for them. We want the students to understand from the get-go that this is their responsibility.

There will be a note on the Ipad asking first time students to please check-in at the Frontdesk. These students will still collect a pass from the Frontdesk which they will then hand to the coach. This will let you know that this student is new to AcroSports.


If there is ever any question about whether or not a student is signed up for your class please have them go to the Frontdesk, where any issues can be solved. It's not your job as a coach to try and fix any issues on the floor. 


Also, the classes should 'disappear' on the Ipad 15 mins after the start of class, making it so that students can not show up late, sign in and come on the floor late. If for any reason a student comes on to the floor 15 mins or later for any class they are NOT TO BE ALLOWED INTO CLASS. This is not allowed for their safety. Again, as a coach, you explain to them that they are late and will not be able to attend class. If there is an issue send them to the Frontdesk where they can direct them to me.


I ask that we all be patient with this new transition. I'm sure there will be some 'teething pains' as we roll this new system out. Please help each other out by sticking firm to our policies ie. making the students sign themselves in and not letting students attend class when they show up late. 


Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions.


Keep up the good work, coaches!!


-Rachel
