Going through Stresses

Sorry for the long silence of words.  But I'm back.  Yet I feel a little lost....

  I started teaching classes at Women's Fun and Fitness in the town I live in.  Except that hardly anyone is coming.  The people that are coming love my class.  The key is how do I get people to try my classes?  I'm offering a free raffle for any participant that comes to my classes.  I've also been emailing a gym that is being built called Anytime Fitness.  When I woke up today, I got the official no email from them.  I just don't know what I am doing wrong.  Because of the heat, I haven't done a lot of hoop jams.  The thing is without seeing hoopdance, people don't understand what to even expect and that they can do this.  Without even trying or watching a class, how can any place, gym or other wise, say no?  At least let me come in and show them what this is about!  I just feel like losing hope but I don't want to give up on this.  What if I give up and someone else comes up behind me and actually makes this work?  What am I doing wrong?  I don't want to be a failure.  I want this to work out for me!

I am afraid sometimes that I have to lose weight for anyone to care about this.  I don't do this to lose weight.  I do this for me.  It's fun and it's helped my sanity/coping skills/socializing.  It's also helping my knees and maintaining weight loss.  I don't know what I should do to get respect around here, especially regarding the local gyms.  I'm working on my personal training cert right now.  I have an old group fitness trainer book.  I wonder how much has really changed since the edition I have and then, I could go ahead and test for it. 

I am slowly plotting a plan.  I'm not sure if it will work but it won't hurt me to try.  I'm thinking of holding a LIKEs contest for my Undefined Hoopdance facebook page, a picture share contest, make a promo video for my class at Women's Fun and Fitness, make a promo picture for my WF&F class (for facebook sharing), and maybe make flyers to post around my town.  I'm not sure what else to do!  I'm also thinking of renting the blue building again for a all day hoop event with classes for $8 and build your own hoop workshop.  On top of that, I'm thinking of getting Hoopnotica trained for level 2 and minis.  I'll have to talk to my mom about that.

Although I will be at my library's Explore event hooping and hopefully gaining interest in hooping!  I'm also going to email local groups/clubs in schools to see if they would like me to come and talk/hoop with their kids.  I really think FCCLA would appreciate this.  Last year, FCCLA in my county said no but guess what?  I'm going to expand to other freaking counties this year.  I'm not a crazy stalker person.  (John accused me of this when I tried to make my own hooping destiny this weekend).  I just love hooping and want to share hooping with everyone.  Is there a crime in that?

Anyone have any ideas?  I have now emailed a few FCCLA schools, even their principles (darn websites can't help me find the correct advisor email addresses).  I am developing plan 2.0 later today.
