Nathan the Gymnast
As a toddler, Nathan loved to climb on things, balance on objects and tumble around on the floor. When Nathan was in third grade, he watched the Olympics and decided
he wanted to be a gymnast. His parents enrolled him in gymnastics classes at a local gym. After about 6 months, his parents were approached by the coach and asked if
they would be interested in letting Nathan join the gym’s competitive team. Since Nathan expressed great enthusiasm for this idea, his parents agreed.
Customer Perceptions and Opinions of Al Qwafil Tourism Company:
Customer Perceptions of Al Qwafil Tourism Company:
Our objective to make this survey is to determine the level of satisfaction among customers who have used the services of Al Qwafil Tourism Company. In
particular, we are interested to know of customers’ perceptions, opinions, and potential return to the company to acquire future travel services.
The way of collecting and receiving the survey was by email.
In order to carry out the survey, the researcher first put together five questions that would be placed in the survey forms. The five questions were designed to target
the topic that the main points of this study, which were:
• Perception of the company
• Opinion of the company
• Extent to which the customer will use the services of the company again
Each question had multiple answers to which the customer could choose from. The questionnaire was sent to customers by email.
The above chart illustrates the percentage of the students who participated in the survey. Of the 39 who were contact, 27 or 69% completed the survey and
emailed it back.
According to the collected data, all of the 27 customers demonstrated high levels of satisfaction in questions 1a and 1b. In regards to Accommodation, 25 of 27
customers (or 93%) were satisfied. In regards to Transport all 27 customers indicated they were satisfied or strongly satisfied.
Customers were asked to determine their level of agreement in terms of their opionion of the owner and of the manager of Al Qwafil Tourism Company. In both
circumstances customers unanimously indicated that they agree of strongly agree.
Customers were asked if they would use Al Qwafil Tourism Company for future services. In total 22 customers indicated they would use the company again. Although this
and previous questions revealed highly positive perceptions of the company, five customers indicated they would not sue Al Qwafil Tourism Company again. Consider that
accommodations, transportation and the opinion of the owner and manager were all high, this raises the question of what other factor(s) may have led customers to
indicate they would not use Al Qafal Toursim Company again. Data from one of the next figures may provide some insight to this comparatively negative response.
In Question 4 customers were asked if the price was fair for the services they received. The response was unanimously positive with all 27 customers indicating yes. In
Question 5 customers also were overwhelmingly positive in regards to the services they received as being well-organized. However, three customers indicated no.
If we refer back to Question 3 in regards to using the services of Al Qwafil Tourism Company again, we notice also a small but significant number of customers who
indicated no. Although it is difficult to determine the cause of why five customers (or 19%) indicated they would not use Al Qwafil Tourism Company again, it would be
useful to know if issues of organization were a factor in this decision. Regardless of any apparent links, it is important for Al Qwafil Tourism Company to find out
what factors caused a significant number of customers to decide not to use the services of Al Qwafil Tourism Company again. With this information, the company could
take measures to fix any factors that may cause customers to decide not to use their services in future.
Perhaps more importantly, the company may also want to find out more information about what factors make customers satisfied. After all, a clear majority of customers
indicated high agreement or high satisfaction with all factors listed in the survey. Knowing which factors the company does well may provide opportunities to exploit
these factors more to attract – or retain – business.
As a member of the competitive team, Nathan attended gymnastics classes three times a week for two to three hours at a time. The team learned to do extensive warm-up
exercises, and then spent equal amounts of time on each of the five competitive exercises. Nathan found he really liked the floor exercises and the vault which allowed
him to jump, run, and tumble. He also liked working on the high bar. He was less fond of the parallel bars and the rings. But his least favorite of all was the pommel
During the training sessions, the coaches would demonstrate the correct way for gymnasts to place their hands on each piece of equipment, and the correct way to hold
their head and their legs while completing each exercise. Students watched films of experts on each piece. Then students were taught the basics of each exercise.
Each piece of equipment had a specified routine that the student needed to master for the competitive meets. After three months of training, the first meets began.
The meets were organized according to skill level. Students who had not yet mastered some skills in the routines were allowed help from their coaches. Students were
scored on the amount of the routine they were able to complete and how well they completed it. Participating in the meets was a motivation to improve. Seeing other
students of the same age correctly completing the routines, and winning the medals, became a great motivator for Nathan to improve.
Back at the gym, in the regularly scheduled sessions, coaches began working with individual students on their strong points and their weak points. Nathan was strong in
floor exercises, high bar, and rings. As the season progressed, with much practice, he also became very good at the vault. His weakest score at every meet was the
pommel horse. To help him improve in this area, his parents (at the recommendation of the coach) purchased a mushroom for their home. The mushroom is an instrument
used to practice movements for the pommel horse and strengthen gymnasts’ arms to be able to accomplish the exercises.
At home, Nathan prefers to practice the tumbling exercises used in the floor routine. He will practice these exercises almost anywhere he goes. He loves tumbling
across the front lawn or anywhere that the surface is soft enough to cushion his movements. He practices his tumbling every day for at least half-hour, doing both his
floor exercises and his vault. His work on the high bar, parallel bars and rings is limited to the gymnasium. Although he has access to the mushroom at home, the only
time he uses it is if a parent or other adult is watching him and encouraging him. At the gymnasium, if Nathan is unwilling to participate in certain activities, the
coaches send him to practice on the mushroom by himself.
In his first year of competition, Nathan does not win any medals at the meets. However, every student participating does get participation awards. Nathan’s parents
track his individual scores on each apparatus throughout the season. After each meet they discuss with Nathan which scores have improved and by how much. At meets
where his scores have improved, he is given a T-shirt representing that meet.
In his second year of competition, Nathan has improved: he earns at least one placement level medal at each meet. At the final meet of the year, Nathan receives a
medal in all categories except pommel horse. Throughout the year, Nathan’s father has given Nathan a challenge to meet: a minimum score on the pommel horse to get a
video game he has requested. Towards the end of the year Nathan gets close but does not achieve the final score.
Now beginning his third year of competition, Nathan’s parents and coaches are discussing new ways to motivate Nathan to improve on the pommel horse to allow him to
advance to the next level of competition.
