TWO businesses have opened in Ash Street aiming to help people improve their fitness and nutrition.

Northwich residents Kay-Leigh Richardson and John Fielding have opened Nutrition @ The Hangout and The Hangout NW.

The pair have launched the businesses in tandem after each spending years plying their trade in the fitness sector.

Kay-Leigh said: “The aim of Nutrition @ The Hangout is to help people understand nutrition and the composition of their body and provides an opportunity to learn and alter their path to a longer and healthier life.

"The Hangout NW on the other hand is a calisthenics gym where we promote body weight training. It also helps people to continually evolve in their range of movement, strength, flexibility and belief in physical capabilities.”

“For several years we have fine-tuned our own training methods and understanding of nutritional needs and have seen our clients achieving amazing and life changing results following these methods and values.

“We decided to create a centre in our home town of Northwich to enable a much more focused approach to delivering this agenda and to a wider audience."

The gym is aiming to bring a fresh approach to a wider audience, in which all aspects of physical wellbeing are addressed.

John said: "We’re different to a gym with weights as we focus only on training the body to be fully functional and we deal with the devolution that comes with our lifestyles and traditional training habits such as decreased range of movement, bad posture, joint compression and short muscle development.

“Training and exercise should be enjoyable but so many people are not having fun with it.

"With calisthenics however it is unavoidable. Play is a central pillar of exploring your physical potential as you will become open to trying new things, falling over and getting back up with a smile on your face.

“This is our home town and it’s an exciting place to be right now with lots of development and activity. While there are many traditional gyms in the town, we are unique in what we offer and the joined up future proofing approach between fitness and nutrition.

"We’re here to make Northwich healthier and happier so come and see what we’re all about and how we can help you."
