On Friday 2nd November 2007 I finally sold the neighboring property, number 46 Church Road, to Wirral Borough Council. I had held this property free from any mortgage charge and the cash generated from the sale will be used to make significant improvements to the gym.
Building work will start next week to remove three internal walls. This will open the gym out into three large training areas and will double the existing floor space. I have also decided to scrap the aerobics hall, do away with classes and concentrate more on the gym a hardcore training market. It will still be suitable to women and those who do not wish to get massive as there will be a large and renewed cardio section. The new weights equipment is also suitable for all types of people. We will, however, no longer offer classes. Punch bags will still be available, although the current aerobics hall/punch bag room will be incorporated into the new gym and will contain gym equipment, with two punch bags being made available in a separate section of the old aerobics hall.
All gym equipment will be replaced with brand new equipment from Powerzone. This can be viewed on their website at www.powerzoneuk.com . We will be adding about 50 pieces of new kit that will include plate loaded lever machines, originally designed by Hammerstrength and which are favoured by bodybuilders. The new gym will contain many pieces of kit which it currently lacks such as a T bar, Smith Machine, Incline and Decline Bench. We will also significantly upgrade the cardio section by adding new treadmills as well as new bikes, cross trainers and concept 2 rowers.
A 3D plan of how the gym will look will be posted online soon.
The lead time to completion will be the beginning of January 2007.
