That’s how much members and instructors have burned since we opened the Fitness Factory on March 1st, 2005.
Let’s just pause to process that – we’re talking about nearly seven and a half tons of fat melted off the bodies of the people of Totnes over the past 12 years! Incredible, isn’t it?
During that time, nearly 150,000 people have attended one of our classes – enough to fill three sports stadiums – and Rory alone has cycled some 70,000 miles while teaching 4,600 spinning classes!
We’ve learned a few things along the way, and the fledgling business that some of you may remember has gradually blossomed into the wonderful place that so many now view as part of their daily life.
To mark our 12th anniversary, we asked you to write us a postcard telling us something you enjoy about the place or a memory or anecdote that you wanted to share. Dozens of you did and our ‘wall of wonderful’ is now on display and making us feel extremely happy every day. Needless to say, the phrase ‘pain, pain, pain!’ features more than once!
So, whether you took a class yesterday or haven’t crossed the threshold in a couple of years, we’d like to take this opportunity to say a sincere thanks to all of our ‘fitness family’ for joining us along the journey. And if it has been a while, why not pop in some time and say hi! We’d love to see you.
And to those of you who we see regularly on the bike or mat, don’t forget we offer incentives if you introduce a friend or family member. Not only will you be doing yourself a favour, but you’ll be helping them too – you might even be saving their life.
Look good, feel good, live longer – that’s the Fitness Factory effect for you.
