Athletes, Prowler Aficionados and Couch Potatoes

We have reached the end of an era. Strongman Sunday today was my last session at the BIZ Runnymede in Chertsey and to be completely honest I’m quite glad and raring to get the new gym up and running. Now that’s not to say that the recent process hasn’t been a little annoying and overwhelming at times. Mid-week last week was a low point, I was generally thinking, ‘FFS, help me I am still in the middle of a building site’ and I had also quite an anxious day towards the end of the week after drinking five shots of coffee. At this time I was thinking, ‘What the f*ck have I done, this project is never going to work, I’m ruined, RUINED. You’ve had some f*cking stupid ideas in the past but this, this one takes the crown, you moronic bastard’ Well, hahaha…. I can laugh about it now, hahahahahaaaaa….hmmmmmm Now I’ve been blessed with lots of offers of help this week which I really do appreciate so I’m letting you know what’s occurring over the next five days. The main bulk of the work the week just gone has been the strip out. It has taken me longer to strip out that I first thought because of the amount of materials that had to be removed, tonnes. The rough plan is as follows…   Monday Delivery of Vulcan rubber flooring. There are 40 mats and each matt is 6’x4’ and weighs 44kg. They need to be moved inside. Delivery of Cardio Equipment Skip Collected Floor adhesive scraped off the concrete floor. Female toilet suite removed Horizontal soil...

Fucking hell, what a week.

Updates of a general nature The BIZ Runnymede’s (where I currently reside) foundations looked extremely rocky this week as a vote on no confidence removed Brian (small hairy gnome fellow) the chairman and forced him to resign. Various other bits of information that have subsequently come out this week have boggled my mind to put it mildly. The looming and immanent demolition of the whole site, the current leadership and other problems that the BIZ Runnymede now face have left me under no illusion in the slightest, it is a great and well timed move to abandon ship. New gym updates I’m looking at opening up on the 1st May, I now have the keys and have started to rip things out of the building. Hopefully I can get most of the stuff sorted by the start of May. I know that some of you in the past have offered to put investment into the project either for a return or for 100% free lifetime access. If the offers still stand I would love to talk them over with you. Also if you’ve not thought about this until now and it sounds like a goer please get in contact. Address of the new unit is below in the ‘signature’. New gym personal training offer I’m offering rom now until the end of May 10 x PT sessions for £200. This is to attract new PT clients to the gym in Staines so if you would like to take me up on my offer please contact me asap. This offer can be used in Chertsey at the moment and Staines...
