Steve raised £1,360,000 to fund the purchase and development of two sites for Balance Health Clubs as Chief Executive. Hunters Health Club was acquired in 2003 and rebranded as Balance Health Clubs in the same year.
The project included an extensive refurbishment to the former Hunters Health Club, the addition of a full time creche, health and beauty salon and hair salon. The Membership Direct Debit was brought in-house and an online membership portal (Harlands Snap) was established to help drive sales.
The club was marketed extensively and an email marketing platform was established to improve member communication. The club revenues grew by 30% in year one whilst membership reached 2,500 by 2007.
Activate Business Development was formed following the successful sale of Balance Health Clubs in 2008.
