To all of our dear members…..
It is with deep regret that we advise you that we will be closing the doors at Beachside for the final time on Thursday 24th March (Easter weekend). We are so grateful to you all for helping to make Beachside the special place it has become. Facilities and equipment do not make a gym great - people do, and we have been blessed to have had great people as both staff and members. Our staff have not only shared our passion for Beachside and embraced our philosophies and culture, but taken it to new levels, through their dedication, personalities and genuine desire to help our members get the very best out of their memberships. Our members have become our friends - we have seen your children grow up and also become members. We have witnessed great friendships develop between our members and have had past members, who had shifted, visit whenever they return to Browns Bay. You have all been extremely loyal and we will miss you immensely I can assure you that since we learnt of the excessive fit out costs on Christmas Eve (and then in January the threat of a Judicial Review to the High Court of our Resource Consent) that we have left no stone unturned in trying to keep the dream alive. We appreciate that it has been a particularly stressful time for you all, and we have shared that anguish with you, going through a roller coaster ride of highs and lows. Jayne and I have had a 32 year association with the gym (30 years either owning or managing it) and are both devastated that it has had to end in this way. Thank you for who you are. We appreciate all that you have done and do, but more than anything your friendship. Love Jayne and Pete
