Event Description: Our goal with this project is to discover how to deliver customer satisfaction and exceed expectations. In order to do this, we are determining current advantages and disadvantages of PSU Fitness classes in terms of class size, time, instructors, class atmosphere and internal customer collaboration.

Many PSMA members served as "mystery shoppers" by participating in fitness classes to study participants’ behavior and interactions.
