Vertical Fitness are one of three finalists for the local Gainsborough Business Awards customer service category after being open for exactly two months.
A string of nominations were put forward for the new fitness studio from clients that propelled them into the finals at Gainsborough’s annual prestigious event. The Gainsborough Business Awards celebrate businesses in Gainsborough and the surrounding area by promoting excellence in a range of categories including: Business of the Year, Best Small Business of the Year, Apprentice of the Year, Best New Business, Best Use of Innovation/Technology, Outstanding Contribution to the Community, Best Customer Service.
The Awards were created to recgonise local businesses for their achievements and celebrate them in a more public and formal fashion. Langleys Solicitors and Ideafuel came together to organise the first ever event back in 2010. Since then there have been numerous winners and runners up in each category and the two businesses through their continued work together are supporting the sixth anniversary of the Awards this year.
Vertical Fitness is a new business that delivers fitness classes during the day and evenings to local residents. They have a pole dancing studio (called Vertical Joy) that hosts national workshops and teaches pole to beginners through to advanced individuals. They also provide a timetable of the more common fitness classes including bootcamp, circuits, boxing, and Insanity.
Business owner Sarah Myers stated: “It was a massive surprise, we’ve only been running our own place for a couple of months. So for any of our clients to take the time out to nominate us, that’s more than we could have expected. We always try to provide a warm and welcoming environment. I suppose I’m just a bit overwhelmed that people like what we do so much that they took the time out to give us recognition for it. Everyone has shown us enormous support, when really, we wouldn’t be here without them.”
The Gainsborough Business Awards is a great event for networking and raising the profile of local businesses. Vertical Fitness have reached the finals in the Customer Service category alongside Marks and Spencers and Emmalooos Coffee House. Fitness Instructor Jodie King had this to say about their nomination: “I used to work at Marks and Spencers so I know first-hand that their customer service is second to none – I am probably still a little biased – and Emmalooos is well known in the town for their friendly atmosphere and great food so it is stiff competition for sure. We are honoured and somewhat taken aback by the nominations. It is safe to say that it has put a big smile on our faces and we are very pleased to be a part of the Awards. It’s a great excuse to celebrate our first two months and pat ourselves on the back in style!”
About Vertical Fitness
Vertical Fitness offers a warm and supportive environment so you can train you bum off, de-stress and chat with like minded crazies while you’re at it! We don’t take ourselves too seriously – if you want results we will get you them and if you just want to try something different and escape the rat race for a few hours then we have what you need too!
The new studio and branding was founded because we needed a custom built space to teach the classes that we loved in. Pole Dancing/Fitness requires a big space, tall poles (the taller the better) and great acoustics. Bootcamp and boxing circuits are best in facilities with ropes, tyres, bags, suspension equipment, pull up stations, and slam balls, in an area where you can shout, sing and swear your way to the end of a set.
The instructors are all friendly and approachable but we are also serious fitness enthusiasts who will help you pursue your goals and take on new challenges. It isn’t about us after all – it is all about you and what you need from your sessions to make you feel great about yourselves, reach those weight loss targets and set off home with a big grin on your face.
