A place called "A New You" in Coralville, Iowa http://www.anewyouia.com/ hired me to do Zumba for them.
At first I was going to teach Tuesdays and Thursdays, however I just don't have the time to give up 2 nights a week. When I looked at my calendar, and the all the children's activities and with Caleb on tour I just don't have a 2nd night to give. So I agreed to just Tuesday nights.
This place has many unique weight loss methods and they encourage all employees to try out everything so we can tell everyone about it, so I see a European wrap or Algae wrap in my future. They both sound interesting and since they are free to me I am curious to try them.
The other place I'm working at is the North Liberty Recreation Center. I will teach Zumba one day a week there, and Body Sculpt 3 days a week. The pay isn't as great and isn't a sure thing, meaning if only 2 people sign up for your class then your pay is maybe only $7.00 for that hour. However if 8 people sign up for your class then you'd get $28. for that hour. This could be an incredible opportunity or a waste of time.
Like for instance the Body Sculpt so far has 5 in it, at least on Monday it did and with the rate per class that they are doing I will get $10.50 for Monday's class. That class really needs 10 in it to be worth my time for the pay I want and deserve per class. But then there's Zumba, with just 6 people in the class it would be great for pay.
So it's my job at the Rec center to make sure I advertise and get people in my class. I hope to grow the numbers and get lots of people there, otherwise I'll have to have them raise the price per person per class and I really don't want to do that. Typically $3.00 a class is what people like to pay, but then there are places (the big gyms) that charge $7.50 a class and people pay that.
