iconic. – not just another gym. At iconic they help create an active and healthy community.
I’ve been asked in the past year “Mhairi, with so many gyms around, why do you go to iconic.?”
There is not one definitive answer. The reasons are many why I choose this diamond in the rough.
I may go off on a tangent, so please bear with me…….
Fiona, female gym owner. Marathon runner. Personal trainer. A mother. A friend. Motivator. Enthusiastic. Conscientious. Redefining the idea of working out in Paisley town centre. Designing a lifestyle brand to turn an exercisintoto an enjoyable routine. The right attitude and lots of energy!
Harry, James and Martin. Personal Trainers at iconic. All extremely focused, committed and knowledgeable. Notable results. Observing, learning and inventing new ways to challenge, inspire and bring fun and excitement in an ever expanding fitness market.
iconic. members. All ages, shapes, weight, sizes, goals and reasons for being there. Non-judgemental. Motivate, praise and encourage. Ignore how disgusting I look (and smell!) post workout.
On a very personal note, I started back training at the end of 2017 after being quite ill for a number of years. Exercise and strength training had always been my “go to”, my “sanctuary” but being poorly meant I could no longer escape. After being given the all clear from my consultant in Nov 2017, I started at iconic. and I’ve never looked back. I’m back to the old me. The me I’d never thought I’d ever find again. My health has improved. I’m on less medication. I’ve lost weight. I’ve gained a new sense of me. Gained friends, knowledge and a belief. These are all things money can’t buy.
So, this is my snapshot of “why I go” and also “why I’ll stay” at iconic. Yes it’s not quite the finished shiny gym that you see popping up ten a penny. Yes it got things that could be better. But that’s part of the appeal and charm. This coupled with the knowledge that I know Fiona is in this for the long haul. She has a vision and is committed to delivering it. It’s not a “one size fits all” attitude. It’s a determination and energy which is also reflected in the whole iconic. team.
I would recommend iconic. in a heartbeat to anyone looking to improve their fitness goals with a dedicated and knowledgeable team.
