Couple launch new small group gym in Redditch

Redditch Editorial 25th Apr, 2024   0

A REDDITCH couple have launched a new gym catering for small groups after securing premises with the help of commercial property agents John Truslove.

Matt Gwillam has worked as a personal trainer almost since leaving school, most recently spending five years at the Redditch PureGym.

“I’ve done a lot of one-to-one sessions and larger groups – say ten to 20 people – but I think smaller groups of four or five provide all the social and team benefits of a larger session with much more individual attention, without the cost of one-to-one,” said Matt.

“And our clients seem to find the same thing. They feel they’re getting a lot more out of it.

“I’d been running sessions out of our garage while we looked for premises in Redditch.”

Wife Lindsey Faulkner, who handles the paperwork and admin side of the business, is an experienced property lawyer and worked closely with the team at John Truslove to find the right premises.

“It only took us two months. I really got on with James Haynes, the apprentice surveyor at John Truslove,” she said.

“He was really helpful and always made himself available.

“We’d looked at one set of premises but that fell through. James suggested a unit at Heming Road which had just become free.”

James helped the couple seal a three-year lease deal on the Heming Road premises and Evolve Performance Gym opened in November.

Lindsey added: “We’ve had a great response, which is keeping Matt busy,

“We’ve also launched a presence on Facebook and on Instagram – so people can see how Matt runs his sessions and the results our clients achieve.”
