‘Rome wasn’t built in a day’

This is one of the most common sayings to describe a task that requires a huge undertaking. It’s also a mantra we find ourselves using quite often at FG UK.

Interestingly, according to Storey (1997), Rome wasn’t built in a day but in fact it took a whopping 800 years after its initial founding to peak. It then flourished for another 429 years! Anyway, I’m fairly sure you’ve not arrived here for a history lesson so let’s move on.

FG UK doesn’t have the luxury of having 800 years to come to fruition! We do however have a tad more than a single day to fully develop into our vision of creating a supportive online community that promotes fitness and healthy living. As with most things in life, it’s the middle ground that proves to be the most effective and sustainable in the long run.

Now, finally!

After much deliberation, brainstorming, research, data gathering, web coding, designing, testing and a whole heap of other tasks undertaken to ensure FG UK provides a smooth, efficient user experience (we can overlook the adding/filtering of facilities for now ?), FG UK is finally able to confidently move forward with its advertising campaign! Cue images of those old 1930’s newspaper ad’s.

Following this, our next task is one of gargantuan proportions. That is the accurate population of all gym facilities contained within our directory. Whilst we have received some much-appreciated help from the larger gym chains, there are still thousands of independent gyms facilities that need accounting for. You may notice therefore that our facilities filter option is caveated with ‘in Beta’.

This is where the help of all your good selves can help to build this community together! If you know what facilities are available in your local independent gyms, please feel free to drop us a line via our ‘Contact Us’ page so that we may input this data directly into the filter.

Lastly… if there’s any features you would like to see added to the site in the future then please let us know in the comments below or contact us directly.

All the best for now!

Signing out,

Tim
