A Bristol-based physiotherapy business showed off their new refitted studio to West of England Metro Mayor Dan Norris.
The Metro Mayor visited Rise Performance and Wellbeing in Bristol.
Rise specialises in physiotherapy for sports injuries and run group pilates and other exercise classes. They received a grant of nearly £6,000 from the West of England Combined Authority, which Mr. Norris leads. This money has been used on a digital marketing campaign to better promote the business and attract new clients. At the same time, they have also recently opened a second studio, which enables them to run more group classes.
Simon Smith, founder and director of Rise, will show Mr. Norris the new studio. Simon also works with the English Institute of Sport supporting the Women’s Artistic gymnasts on the British Gymnastics team.
Dan Norris said: “I hope that Simon and the team at Rise don’t think I was speaking literally when I said I’d bend over backwards to help businesses in the West of England!
“The pandemic was difficult for businesses in the sports and leisure sector – but I’m delighted to be hear at Rise today to hear about how they’re bouncing back.
“The grant they received is helping their business grow – it’s helping them attract new clients and increase their capacity at the same time. I want to help businesses across our region thrive and ensure they can go from strength to strength.”
