FORMERLY known as The Training Shed in Daventry and built up by previous owner Kirsty New, this gym and its hardworking team's number one priority has always been the members.
Now Northern Hemisphere, the gym ensures everyone feels comfortable in the fitness environment whilst also offering a variety of functional equipment, teaching people to move and train to better themselves.
From the general public to local sportsmen and women, all are welcomed with open arms.
New owner Jamie Canham and his team - Amy Garrett, Cory Flynn and Jayne Povey - took over the business in April this year and endeavoured to keep the same attitude toward inclusivity alive in the gym. This has been achieved, with the help of instructors and PTs Sian Bates and Abbi Tyers staying on board for the transition.
Since the handover a number of classes have been introduced, tripling the original number available to members and pay-as-you-go clients adding huge value and variety to memberships.
Jamie heard and met the need for resistance machines to supplement the current kit, creating a well-rounded offering for gym users. The addition of a new studio space and relocation of the Spin (indoor cycling) studio have further improved the layout and allowed for Dutch Kickboxing, MMA and other specialised sports with instructor Ryan Andrews on board.
Ongoing work to better the gym for members will continue on in the hope that the gym can reach its potential for its members later this year.
Members' reviews include: "Excellent coaches and classes. Feels more like a family than a gym" and "Nice to be able to work out in a friendly, safe environment where you always feel you belong. Wouldn't go anywhere else."
Jamie and the team have a real drive to deliver for the members and have further plans around introducing group running sessions supporting locals in their bid to get fit and move more, bridging the gap between solo running and running clubs which can sometimes feel intimidating. All-in-all a refreshing and unique attitude towards helping the community and an exciting journey for the Northern Hemisphere Fitness team and a real asset to Daventry locals.
