Pride's double expansion & refurb, August 2018
August 2018, just 5 months after opening, we were in a fantastic position to double the size of Pride Performance gym. The plan was to knock down 2 walls into the neighboring units to create the expansion which offers a huge amount of lifting platforms and an increased turf and matted area. We closed the gym 4pm Saturday 18th August and began to strip the old flooring out. We had a timeline of a week to complete the work ready for our free re-open day Saturday 25th August. With the huge amount of help which we recieved from all of our members, we were able to finish on the Thursday and enjoyed a celebratory pizza night with our Pride! We cannot express our thanks enough to everyone who came down and helped us this week, we couldn't have done this without you and we appreciate every bit of help we've had. When we originally built Pride, we said that we wanted to Pride to encompass all that we are; how we and our members feel, the community we are building and the gym itself; and this week has really shown that to us. We aren't just a gym, we're a family, a Pride.
