James Hilton, of James Hilton Fitness, shares how March is going for his business!

It’s March! The first month of Spring and the month the clocks go forward this month so it will be lighter nights and less time asleep! It was also the Budget this month! What does the world of business look like this week?

Today we’re talking to James Hilton who is the owner of Jim’s Gym which is a virtual gym aimed at keeping people healthy and independent later on in life.

How is March looking for you in your business?
March is shaping up to be very exciting for Jim’s Gym. I have partnered with a local yoga instructor who specialises in accessible yoga to bring 3 new yoga classes to the platform: seated yoga, mat-based yoga and meditation.

Are you taking part in any wider events or business collaborations this month?
Continuing to develop Jim’s Gym means many more collaborations are in the works. Without saying too much, I’m soon to launch my podcast and introduce the members to a colleague who has developed a beginner’s self-defence workout to Jim’s Gym

This month it’s International Women’s Day, St David’s Day, National No Smoking Day. Are there any awareness days or week this month which is important to you or your business?
It goes without saying that National No Smoking Day is a day that I support given the health risks associated with smoking.

International Women’s Day is also a fantastic opportunity to celebrate the incredible women not only in my life but also those who are making waves in my industry and of course my wonderful female clients!

March is also Mother’s Day (March 10) is this an important day for your business?
Many of my clients are mothers, and also grandmothers, and much of the work I carry out with these clients has a focus on making life with the kids, or grandkids, physically pain free and ensuring that they can keep up with the demands of energetic young ones! It’s a fantastic, measurable, goal I work with people to achieve.

Would you like to share your thoughts about your mother, a mother figure in your life or your life with a mother or as a mother?
My own mother has played a pivotal role in shaping me and giving me the genes of determination and drive to succeed. We share so many things in common, most notably our love for cooking which naturally, I gained from her, from a very young age. This passion, I hope is now being passed down to my children.

In the yearly cycle of your business, what do you expect during March?
I often have clients come to see me this time of year.

The days are getting longer, and we see (somewhat) more sun! It’s a great time to start focusing on getting outside more and brushing off those winter cobwebs. Whether this be some time in the garden, or longer walks, I work with clients to understand what they love doing and help them do it with ease.

Have you got any special offers for March or April that you’d like to mention?
Your first month with Jim’s Gym is 50% off - so only £5. It’s a great opportunity to see what it’s all about and test out some of the sessions.
