The Necessity of Class Size Caps and Booking Systems for the Small Gym Owner

Business, Coaching

This video is going to address the topic of the class cap. As a gym business grows, this is a question that many business owners encounter. If you incorporate a class cap, you also have to figure out how to enforce it. And while some clients may welcome the cap, others will find it and the required schedule of reserving a class space troublesome.


Should you limit your classes to a certain amount of clients? Here's what we'll look at:



  • Student-to-coach ratio and the associated costs
  • The finite quality of coaching skills and ability
  • What your typical class looks like
  • Using a reservation or booking system for class space
  • The pitfalls of not using a reservation or booking system
  • How you deal with clients who show up without a reservation
  • The importance of honoring your reservation system and class cap
  • Starting your business with the cap and booking system, not adding it later
