13 Mar Olympian & Jungle Celebrity Fatima Whitbread Opens NEW Southend Gym
24th & 25th March marks the open weekend of a BRAND NEW gym in Southend endorsed by Olympian and Jungle Celebrity Fatima Whitbread, This Girl Can Essex and supported by The Princes Trust.
It seems there’s a new gym, PT bootcamp or fitness class starting up in every town every week, so identifying a place in the market with clear messaging about their differences is important to Runway Fitness founders Dannielle Emery and Caroline Elman: ‘What makes us different is we are female gym owners and specialise in group fitness. Most gym owners are male and focus on the PT side of the business. We hope to bring the best of both worlds.’ In the year of the woman, the female Fitpro’s have embarked on a partnership to bring a unique fitness experience.
Offering a unique membership UPT, members can book unlimited personal training sessions making personal training affordable and every workout accountable. Along with a strong emphasis on group fitness, members can choose from Boogie Bounce, Clubbercise, Zumba, and Totally Shredded – to name a few. For new mums, there’s also mother and baby classes as well as kids and family sessions.
Many of Runway Fitness’s potential customers may recognise Dannielle from some of her TV appearances. A professionally trained dancer, singer and actress, she has featured on Loose Women, The Only Way is Essex (teaching the stars a Stiletto class), Sunday Brunch, The Sun Video Live, Britain’s Got Talent, Got to Dance and GMTV. She has also presented a number of fitness conventions in the UK, including Move It and Britain’s Next Top Model Live, as well as overseas, in countries including Italy, Holland, Germany and Australia.
