We are 2 Girls 1 Plan.... So what’s the plan?
Good question! That is something we have spent the last year trying to put in to words....here it is in brief:
We want our own studio.
We want to offer you fitness classes that are different to the big corporate gyms.
We want to train you before work, at lunchtime, after work.
We want you to experience a different kind of Pilates – our own unique style of Pilates.
We want you to laugh, have fun, make new friends (if that’s what you want).
We want you to bring your friends and family along to join the fun.
We want to teach you that being strong and confident in yourself is achievable.
We want you to look and feel HOT HOT HOT!
...and here's the long version:
FORWARD FITNESS STUDIO OPENING JULY 2012
(if all goes according to our crazy plan)
Forward Fitness is run by two over energetic, go grab life by the balls, let’s make it happen, kinda girls. They do not sit back and expect things to happen for them, so when the opportunity came along for them to have their own studio, they jumped at it. It’s in a great location and is the right size. This is the next step in their ‘2girls1plan’. They just need a wee bit of help to turn their dream into a reality. Here’s what they have to say.
How does your garden grow? With Bloom of course!
Bloom is run by two Scottish Women, Amanda and Michelle, they are feisty forty-somethings bucking the trend of trendy twenty-somethings at the heart of the social revolution and we wanted to keep this crowdfund close to home and our hearts, which means we also get to met Amanda and Michelle for cups of tea and chats about our fund.
We both have similar backgrounds, this is our second choice of career, a total change to what we were doing in our twenties, we met three years ago working part-time in a gym while studying at college, we clicked and our friendship started. We would talk about having our business and saw it as a dream but a year ago we made it a reality, we set up Forward Fitness Glasgow and decided to start running our classes.
Our current timetable is busy but exhausting, we run and cycle to different locations throughout Glasgow and now that we have the opportunity to get our own space where we can be based full time we just have to take this, it’s scary and a bit sooner than we expected but we need to do it. It feels like this is what we have been working so hard for over the past year.
The space that we want to open will be fun, fresh and funky, we have a great client base growing and we want them to train with us in a great space. We teach a wide variety of classes but our main focus is on Fitness Pilates, running, spin and FIT3zero - our unique lunchtime class.
We have been putting our whole lives into this business and recently we both gave up our main jobs to focus on Forward Fitness full time. It’s been a scary leap to take but we are already seeing the rewards as we now have new clients on our books and classes on our timetable, which are fully booked every week.
The studio that we have seen is amazing and we should have the paperwork signed within the next month, which is why we are crowdfunding for the next 30 days. We need to raise money so that we have the start up costs required for the opening of the studio.
When we open the studio we will be able to share the passion that we have for our job to more people, we will have more energy and even more time to teach classes as we won’t be travelling between locations. We just can’t express in words just how excited we are that we have this opportunity so early on in our business.
It’s all pretty simple, we have a small pot of savings from our first year trading but it’s not enough to get us opening the doors of a studio. There is a bit of decorating to be done and we will need to furnish the reception area but the big costs are hidden in transforming two empty rooms into comfy changing areas for men and women. This alongside the deposit for the electricity account, deposit on the lease and then a couple of months rent up front all adds up to a bit more than we have saved.
We are firm believers in everything happening for a reason; opening a studio has always been part of our plan, it’s just happening a bit quicker than we planned. We know we can make this happen we just need a few high 5s from you to make it possible.
Other ways you can help
Don’t worry if you can’t make a promise, we would really appreciate if you could help spread the word via social networking, Facebook, Twitter, whatever takes your fancy! Please spread the link and help us reach our target.
And lastly a big huge thank you from the two of us for at least taking them time to read our crazy plan.
