Where are we now?
WholeHealth is already running successful and well-received swim and Tri training sessions to a range of people in the Nottingham Community. We have Swim Squad and Tri Squad Training sessions running each week, through which we have introduced people of all ages and abilities to training and taking part in multi sport events, including a dedicated session for people living with Parkinsons Disease. These people have inspired us, and helped the business to grow. Now we want to do more for them.
We are partnered with WIRED, a vibrant cafe in the Nottingham City Centre run by a keen WholeHealth member, Très.
Where do we want to be?
Together, we now want to expand our WholeHealth offer to include Open Water swimming, indoor training with a Wattbike cycle studio, indoor and outdoor gym and yoga/pilates overlooking the water and delivering swim, bike and run training sessions and much more. We know from a recent survey of our customers that we have the demand for this already from our current active community, and we plan on extending the offer to new participants.
"Don’t stop! It’s an amazing group to be part of. I’m proud of what I and other people have achieved. Wholehealth tri makes me happy."
The activity hub and café would be open to all, encouraging active participation and engagement. The building we have been offered has huge potential as a unique, urban activity hub on the banks of the historic River Trent.
In time we hope to develop the same high-end café offer that WIRED offers in the City Centre; great coffee and wholesome, healthy food. This will make the WholeHealth Hub a unique destination which will appeal not just to local residents but also people across the city and county.
The project can be delivered in a very short time frame, as we are ready to hit the ground running, pick up the broom and get to work!
How can we make this happen?
We need an injection of cash to get the project off the ground, as there is some work to be done to get the building fit for purpose.
The money raised will help us to pay for planning permission to change the use of an empty, unloved warehouse to a vibrant active site, open to all. We will need to spend some money on refurbishing and cleaning up the building, and getting some equipment to get us started. We will buy gym, indoor training and Open Water swim equipment, and training for our staff to deliver the sessions that we can start straightaway. We have an enthusiastic team of triathlon, cycle, SUP and yoga coaches who are ready to go as soon as we can open our doors. Let's make this happen, and help all of us in Nottingham to be wholly healthy!
