I had to move my personal training apt that was scheduled for tomorrow until next Tuesday. Its a long story that I will get into at another time ... but first things first.
Because I had to move the appointment, and had a feeling I was going to miss yoga tonight, I started getting ticked again about the screw up with that personal training studio. I said I was going to post bad reviews about them, but I never did ... until today. I found them on Yelp and there was only one review (a very short 4 star review that I'd bet was from someone they know). After my one star review they went down to two stars. A pretty huge dent in a new businesses profile ;)
Tonight I get a message through Yelp. A pretty long, rambling message. It's from the owner of the business who says she had a wrong number for me and has been trying to get in touch with me. She gave me one of those last-minute-emergency excuses for the personal trainer that I had an appointment with. She offered me three free personal training sessions. She asked me to come back in so they could prove themselves to me, and then (essentially) asked me to resubmit another Yelp review. That social media stuff is pretty powerful ;)
Do I go in? Do I look like a sucker? Is the awkwardness of what happened too much to start off a personal relationship like one involved in training? I know I wanted an apology, but I expected one the day after. Its been weeks, I posted a bad review, I've let the steam build, and I've scheduled another personal trainer for next week now. I'm confused. I guess I dont know what I should do here!
Note: The personal trainer I have coming next week is supposed to work with me for a couple of weeks until her boot camp starts in June, with a date she seems unsure of. She doesnt appear to have a lot of availability for me, but I expressed interest in this upcoming bootcamp that shouldnt be much more than 4-6 weeks away.
