It’s been a while since we’ve written a blog – but as most of you know, we’ve been busy moving into our brand new premises in the basement area of Activ. We spent four and a half years at The Shed, built a wonderful business, met some great people and helped change lives. So for us, the move came at the perfect time
We started our planning for this at the end of last year. I wanted to be able to continue to offer my customers a first class spinning experience and, while The Shed was a great starting venue, I felt we needed some fresh space, some new equipment and some decent air con! I was lucky enough to be approached by Steve Burton, the owner of Activ, and offered the space under his shop. With the help of two very dear friends and support of handfuls of others, Nat and I have been able to create the studio of our dreams
The new studio, if you haven’t been yet, is, as they say, the nuts! Twenty brand new, top of the range Schwinn spinning bikes with optional performance technology. In laments terms, you can see how far you’ve ridden, how fast and how many calories you’ve burnt (amongst other things!). A brand new music system with speakers that literally drive the bass right through you and top notch air con, making your ride even more comfortable. We’ve also now got a fantastic PT studio with treadmill, watt bike, rower, boxing equipment and weights. All in all, we’re pretty chuffed!
Feedback so far has been fantastic. Customers old and new are telling us how much they love the bikes, which makes our day.
As for me, well, I’m now enjoying seeing the hard work of the last eight months come together. Our opening event really showed me how lucky I am to have such supportive and loyal customers. And for that, I am truly thankful. In addition, I just want to publicly say thank you to my Dad, Neil and Spicer, who have been invaluable throughout the moving process.
We hope to see you soon if we haven’t already and remember, if you don’t climb the mountain you won’t see the view
