Tell us about your business
The Groove offers group exercise classes for all ages & fitness levels. I also offer small group personal training sessions.
How did your business get started?
I was teaching at a fitness club that was open prior to opening Groove. The owner closed her business & I took over the lease in the space under my own name. Very unexpected & it all happened very quickly.
What is it about your business that makes it unique?
What makes Groove unique is the way people feel comfortable upon their first visit. It can be intimidating to come to a class where you don’t know anybody, or maybe feel you don’t know what you’re doing. If I can get people through that door for the first time, they usually come back. It is a very welcoming & encouraging atmosphere. We have classes at all levels, from very basic to extremely challenging, so hopefully there is something for everyone, whatever kind of workout fits your needs.
What do you see for your business in the future?
Groove has steadily grown in its 4 short years in business. We have moved once to a larger space within the plaza we are located in, & expanded once since there. I hope to see continued growth each year!
Is there anything else you would like to add and share about your business?I
have a great team of talented & qualified instructors that make each class at Groove a positive experience. I am proud of what we have accomplished, & hope to continue to make an impact in the community with people on their fitness journeys.
