It’s been a busy month getting the space ready, while still training every morning and night! I finally got some pictures ready to post. I’m afraid to show the really bad before pictures, so I’m only including one that shows an example of some of the stuff left behind. I filled a trailer that is 16 feet long, 6 1/2 feet wide and 2 feet tall with the garbage that was left behind. That does not even include a fully functional (but dirty) stainless steel refrigerator that I kept, a functioning microwave and all the recyclable material that I recycled separately!
I will be open next week. The new phone is installed (but they didn’t set up the voicemail yet) so I connected an answering machine. The phone number for the gym is (763) 267-7847. The ads have been running in the Delano Herald and the Shopper. The hits on the site have been through the roof due to the advertising. For those of you that have seen the paper ads and have checked out the site, if you contact the gym and leave me a message prior to the opening date of 9/1 I will let you sign up for the reduced rate of $49 per month (this includes a mandatory introductory session). Mention that you saw the ad on this site.
Let’s get to the good stuff – pictures. Here’s a before pic:
Work on the space has been constant. The sound system is installed (speakers on the back wall), most of the painting is completed, the flooring is in, and the mirrors are in. I still need to anchor the ropes (which can be seen on the floor). We will have a bright space to work out in!
Ron helped me install the rack for the bandit loops. 2 pairs of the loops are hanging and the third will go up this weekend. In the meantime, the kids have found a fun purpose for the loops. My purpose might not be quite as fun, but will be very functional.
This pic is not related to the new space, but I felt the need to comment on this nice swing! Mike you are looking great!
