Hello and Welcome!
This is an area that we will use to provide you all with our thoughts on our journey…and yours. Whatever we do at Unit 17 will always have its members at its core.
The past 6 weeks have been a phenomenal success, and every week brings with it new challenges, but more importantly, more positive feedback that enforces the reasons we created Unit17.
As the word spreads about our little corner of York, our membership base is growing. I feel it is worth noting that we do not want to saturate our classes and try to squeeze in as many as possible. It is our belief that in order to provide the quality of coaching we are passionate about, class sizes should be restricted to 15 maximum. This allows us coaches to walk amongst you, providing cues to improvements on technique and motivation and encouragement where needed.
We are often asked where we place ourselves as an independent gym in York.
We are not a large brand of ‘Low Cost / Budget’ gym that offers thousands of square metres of space filled with machines and people who are not getting the results they think the £10 per month should afford them.
We are not a Crossfit box that can sometimes be a little rough and ready.
We are not a high end gym that offers sexy changing rooms, creches and cafes.
We are not a bootcamp gym or somewhere that offers ‘Guaranteed Real Results’ and stocked shelves of supplements, pills and potions that MUST be taken to see results, or charging you extortionate fees.
What are we..?
We are a hybrid…We have created a place that offers its clientele what they want. We offer functional classes using a range of fit for purpose equipment that are not the latest technology. We deliver functional classes that are not solely centred on lifting heavy weights, but are concerned with movement and mobility centred around everyday activities. We offer a membership price point that is not affiliated to a larger corporation or brand and allows inclusiveness not exclusivity. You, the member, our client, should not be charged extra for being coached correctly. We are a small training facility that is not driven by ego or by the need to extract as much cash as possible from its clients. We are clean, tidy and presentable at all times, We are friendly, approachable and we listen…
…oh…and we have coffee that we will gladly share with you when you want to chat.
