The first space


So to give you guys an update on the sort of places we've looked at in search of a box, here’s a place we checked out a couple of months ago.

The property is in a cul-de-sac with good transport links (near railway line). There is also good access to local amenities (out side area is used as public dumping ground as well as being next to skip facility site). Security is also good (you could probably hold an illegal rave here) –(yes there's a touch of sarcasm).

Seriously, the place was about 3000sqft of which 2500 is usable as gym space, which is a good size, and the price seemed pretty good too. Several problems. Add in rates, and cost of redecorating, it was not affordable. Outside really was a tip…as you can see from the pictures. It was not somewhere that would be to appealing to be at nighttime. This is important as a good percentage of our members are of the fairer gender. You sort of just know when you drive up to a place, you either love it or hate it. There was no love for this place.
