September was rocking - but as ever, we never like to stand still here at Innovate.
Grab a brew, and a (small) biscuit, and take a peek at what’s been going down, and what’s on the horizon.
It probably seems like Tina Richardson has been gatecrashing the coaching sessions for what seems like an eternity now - but up until this week, she was only on ‘work experience’.
We’re delighted to officially welcome Tina into the fold as a fully fledged team member a Coach, taking over Tuesday and Wednesday mornings, and Thursday eves, plus the odd weekend.
LAST CHANCE FEEDBACK
As ever, we’ve been running our monthly survey - it’s been one of the best things we’ve introduced to be honest. INSANELY helpful to us.
You fill it in and achieve two things:
We read every single piece of feedback and whilst we can’t act on everything, we DO take them onboard, look for the common patterns, and try to address one or two things each month.
Continuous improvement is the name of the game:-)

HALLOWEEN FANCY DRESS COMPETITION
We’ve not done this for a year or two, but we used to rock the Halloween dress-up workouts!
Totally optional, but we invite you to come to your workout in totally over the top fancy dress - the coaches on the day will be too!
And we will have a vote for TWO best-dressed winners- where each will win a prize!
For once, not as exciting as previously, but again, ‘continuous improvement’.
We’ve ordered some new mats.
Once they’re in, if anyone wishes to take one of the current (old) knackered ones home, you’re more than welcome to one each……
Kate and Hannah Evans will be hosting a technique workshop on Sunday 4th November.
A poll will go up shortly, to ask for some direction on what would be most helpful.
But amongst the techniques bits - there’ll be coffee and cake. Lots of cake.
An opportunity to eat cake mainly.
And tidy up your squat.
But yeh, cake…..

BAFF - Bring a Friend Fortnight
Your friends are entitled to a free fortnight with us.
You can refer them to us, to come do a trial……..and they don’t have to come to the same sessions as you, if they don’t want to…………and if they decide to stay on afterwards, you’ll get £30 in vouchers - and your mate will get £50 off a program or membership.

We only need their name and number - we contact them and have a friendly chat to see if they’d like to come do the trial.

We’ll reach out and explain the details - and how it works should you wise to upgrade your membership after the free trial.
