Since its initial launch in March 2019, the Health Studio based at Sheppey Leisure Complex has attracted and engaged over 300 older adults who now take part in regular physical activity.
The space which formerly housed a children’s soft play area has boosted income generation by 1,240% in just 12 months!
Initially the 86m² facility was used as a children’s soft play area and having realised that this had become tired in addition to an increasing number of local product offerings competing for the same business, the team at Sheppey scoped for alternative solutions to maximise on the space.
An initial investment of £83k for refurbishment of room, Shapemaster equipment and additional kit.
The commercial success of the Health Studio has far exceeded expectations (with member base running at 50% above original business plan). As of March 2020 the centre had 300 members with a monthly direct debit income of £7,500.
In comparison with the 2018 income generation for the space, 2019 reported a 1,240% increase in income generation!
