The extra money would be used to buy additional equipment for the gym.

The global COVID-19 pandemic has created a very uncertain landscape for millions of British small businesses, which is going to make it very challenging for businesses to survive. 

The aim of this campaign is to gain the funds needed to open a private functional training facility where I can carry out 1-1 and small group personal training sessions, in a safe and controlled environment. As a fitness professional this has been a long term aim of mine, I feel now is the time to act not only from a business perspective but as a way to help people stay healthy during this global pandemic.

It is well documented that people's health and fitness will play a predominant role in battling the Covid-19 epidemic. Currently many commercial gyms are struggling to implement procedures that all members follow, as a result people's confidence to train in the bigger brand facilities has been knocked. From what I have experience since returning to personal training after lockdown, peoples preference now lies training in private, controlled environments where they can maintain social distancing with ease and can be certain all equipment is cleaned before and after use.

The money that I am crowd funding for will go towards the rental of a premises to open a gym and to aid with the purchase of gym equipment. In addition I am looking to take someone on to help me market my services and improve my online visibility. This way not only will I increase the chances of this being a long term success, but also be able to ensure other free lancers that have been affected during lockdown income.
