For those who don’t know, I have retrained….. I don’t want to go back to the oil industry with my kids and care duties for my mum, so I’ve decided to do something completely different.
My husband and I, along with our very good friend, Andrew Gordon, have spent many hours working on our plans, and how our business will shape up.
On the ground floor at Sanctuary, in Bon-Accord Street, Aberdeen, we have a traditional shop, where there will be fitness foods, seasonings & spices, high protein food, fitness accessories, and a growing pamper corner with luxurious massage candles, soaps and bath smellies.
On the lower floor, there are lovely beauty/massage rooms, and there will be two studios, for personal training and small classes, as well as a waiting room for comfort. We also have lovely little massage candles for the added pamper factor.
Andrew has worked hard, gaining his qualifications and experience for personal training and nutrition, with massage and more coming later this year, as well as being an accredited nutritional therapist.
James will be taking on new training in the second half of the year, and has been the one responsible for converting the lower floor rooms to lovely pamper areas and studios. I think he deserves a little break before starting again.
My training has involved things I enjoy, and has evolved from some lovely free treatments I had earlier this year. I am loving the practice on my models, and I wish I’d done something in the service industry years ago.
My degree consisted significantly of nutrition, although it was too long ago for the current institutions, and with my weight loss post underactive thyroid diagnosis and treatment, I’m doing a refresher course, and will be providing nutritional advice at some level in the future, along with meditation.
