The JIM Gym Journey – Throwback

April 1, 2016

The JIM Gym Journey

As we start to plan some exciting new events and campaigns for the rest of the year ahead with some great offers coming your way, we thought we would look back at some of the progress we have made so far. A nice throwback to remember the memories …

Build phase

It seems like an age ago that the build of JIM began, as a former nightclub in Loughborough transformed into a unique and inspiring gym, it is hard to remember it ever looked any different.

Seeing it develop over the course of just 3 months was a great process for those involved in the refurbishment and the initial project. The amount of hard work and dedication put into building a great gym for Loughborough is an ethos our staff strive to maintain and use to motivate our members daily.

And the doors were opened!!

This was an incredibly exciting day for us to invite our friends, family, and the public as our future members of the JIM family to come and enjoy everything we had built. With chances to look round, to train for free for everyone and a live DJ, the atmosphere was amazing!

It is difficult to describe this day without going overboard on the cheesey descriptions, but this was one of the best days in JIM’s gym journey! We welcomed teams from Loughborough to enter and put themselves up in a massive test of strength and fitness that truly test everyone to their limits.

From the staff that organised the event and ran the day to the competitors taking part, everyone really excelled and demonstrated amazing enthusiasm for JIM and the gym fitness test we had put on.

Welcoming the students back to Loughborough and back to JIM

Our student deals and competitions saw the launch of an upgraded gym through new great membership offers and an exciting class timetable launched to add to our JIM Roulette and running map, to keep giving all our members more.

We welcomed you all to come and play in our gym and did! Our membership grew massively during these months and stronger JIM family developed. We love how close our members are with us and one another, it helps to have your friends through your gym journeys and we’re so pleased we have created a strong unit.
