The last week has been super exciting for me as I finally got the keys for what will become the Empowered Fitness training studio - after 8 long months of relentlessly jumping through hoops and pursuing the property. Our new address will be Premier House on Duckmoor Road in Southville from September!
With my carefully devised project plan in place we started off with my wonderful husband tearing up the old floor ready for the floor fitters to put laminate down (while I swanned off on a hen do in France, hehe, great timing!) So thanks to the lovely chaps at Classic Carpets we now have a sexy barn oak floor which I think looks really smart.
Meanwhile it was all hands to the deck for the builders at DL Barrett who are creating a changing and shower room for us. They nervously started drilling in hope they would find the waste pipes to plumb the showers (and not have the dig up the entire floor and car park outside) and bingo they hit jackpot first time. So much relief all round!
We're going to have 3 training areas - a large functional and cardio training room, a core training room and a weight lifting room. After spending the weekend laying down the rubber gym mats, it's now looking something like this...
As with any big projects it hasn't been without it's dramas - first one realising that the rather expensive and audacious company logo I've ordered is too big for the wall. Oops! Just as well I have a plan B ;-)
