Let me start by telling you that my new gym on Richmond road will be open within 2 weeks! I am so excited to be opening my doors in my favorite ‘hood!
However – I am not opening over at 98 Richmond Road as originally planned – that space, unfortunately, did not work out. Instead, I am opening at 332 Richmond Road. This space is beautiful and was once home to Kardish and more recently, a lovely little grocery store called Noor.
Not the right home
After a series of unfortunate events over at 98 Richmond, it became clear that it wasn’t going to be the right home for LYB. Although the people in the condos welcomed me and couldn’t wait to run downstairs for their workouts, there were a bunch of large setbacks. These setbacks and other issues made it obvious issues that there would be future challenges. That was when I made the hard decision to pull out. It was a tough choice as I had already invested a significant amount of money into the space, but it became clear that it was going to be more costly to stay so I cut my losses and made a new plan.
First I was lucky enough to come across a wonderful little gym that was sadly closing its doors up in Carlington, which has given us a temporary home.
A Better Space
Then I got really lucky and noticed a post in a local Facebook group about a business closing and immediately got in touch with the listing agent. This space is better in all ways for our needs, including an upstairs space for offices and a staff lounge, better floor space, a backroom for showers, bathrooms, and a kid zone and it’s on a much better part of Richmond Road! I’m thrilled to be so close to some of my favorite spots like Lululemon, Equator coffee, Pure, Shop Tallow, Gazellig, Kitchenalia… and so many more – this is my favorite part of Westboro and I get to be right in the middle of it!
I can’t believe that in just a few weeks I’ll have my team altogether finally (after working remotely for SO long), that I’ll finally be with all my clients! Stay tuned for updates!!!
