Burn Fitness’s Kim Blessington has found a unique, non-judgmental way to make women and girls feel comfortable while they work out
When it comes to fitness, places that throw open their doors, cost a bundle, and try to be everything to everyone are a dime a dozen.
Not Kim Blessington’s Burn Fitness in Cranston. She’s been in the fitness world for 15 years, and she vowed when her time came that she’d open up the kind of place she thought would make women like herself the most comfortable.
Before she took the plunge and opened her own place, Kim had been a personal trainer and instructor, teaching classes and seeing clients across Rhode Island, at five or six different gyms. The rigmarole had gotten to her, and so did the various sketchy “scenes” she came across along the way.
“I wanted to do the right thing for the people I’ve come to know as my clients,” she says. That means giving them a comfortable, high energy/low pressure place to sweat, to work out, and best of all, to be themselves.
So when the opportunity arose-a space opened up next to her daughter’s dance studio-she took the plunge. Her idea was to open a place for women and girls of all ages, where they can work out with no distractions. Also, Kim loved the idea that dance moms could drop their children off and come straight to class. They could capitalize on the time their kids were dancing by getting their workouts in too. “My friend owns the dance studio, and we thought we could take advantage of the proximity by offering cross promotions, to get our customers thinking about how this kind of convenience might work for them.”
Business is booming. The idea is beginning to click and traffic is really picking up. Women ranging in age from teenagers and student/athletes right on up are finding an accommodating place to stay physically and mentally fit without worrying about what they wear or how much they sweat. Kim also felt like doing her part to address adolescent obesity was critical. “Women and girls can feel comfortable and connect with each other here,” says Kim. “I wanted it to feel like a truly welcoming place, non-judgmental and it seems like we’re getting there.”
With a little help, Kim is running full slate of small group fitness classes as well as personal training sessions for her clients. Classes range widely, from barre, Pilates, zumba and strength training to kick-boxing and yoga. They take place mornings as well as evenings to accommodate everyone’s busy schedules.
“It takes a lot to make a commitment to a workout regimen,” says Kim, “and by opening Burn Fitness I really wanted to honor that commitment with the best possible space I could create.”
“We’re not concerned about image here,” she says. “We’re only concerned about having a friendly place where people are getting and staying fit.”
On July 16th, the team of mortgage professionals at Province Mortgage Associates, Inc. celebrated their 10th anniversary as one of the most reputable mortgage lenders based out of the Greater Providence area. For the first 10 years of their existence, they have been headquartered at 10 Davol Square in Providence, RI renting space owned and operated by Brown University. President, David Currie is proud to announce the purchase of their own building at 50 Office Parkway located just of Rt. 44 adjacent to the Stop & Shop Plaza in East Providence, RI. This beautifully renovated building will become their new headquarters, giving this team 4600 sq. feet of space to expand their business of helping homeowners.
“Province has become big enough to be relevant, yet it remains small enough to be nimble”, comments Currie.“We’ve been able to endure all of the highs and lows of the last ten years by making good decisions and growing slowly. Our entire staff has worked so hard to earn one of the best reputations in the mortgage industry, and they deserve this new space.”
Province Mortgage Associates is a full service delegated mortgage lender licensed in RI, MA, CT, NH, and VT specializing in residential and commercial lending for purchase and refinance transactions.
“Our business is generated solely on referrals from our network and our valued clients”, shares Don Wilson, Director of Corporate Relations. “We survey 100% of our closings, receiving between 20 and 30 positive reviews each month with comments always revolving around one central theme: outstanding service.”
The Province team has earned many accolades including being voted “One of the Best Places to Work in RI” by the Providence Business News six times. The Province staff has been recognized for holding each other accountable to a higher standard, sporting an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau. Province has used this competitive advantage to grow their company with the most recent accomplishment being the addition of their new location in Cheshire, CT acquiring the team of seasoned mortgage professionals at Constitution Mortgage.
Strategic Growth Manager, Alan Conley, is currently engaged in a national recruiting campaign for new mortgage professionals. “Province earns the commitment of its people by providing unprecedented peer support in a team environment that permeates our culture and inspires our people to exceed their goals. This new headquarters will be a wonderful reflection on the quality of people we have working for us, and we’re currently looking for more like-minded mortgage professionals to join our team.” Province recently launched http://www.MakeYourMoveToProvince.com which showcases everything that this local business has to offer.
