After suffering health problems, Vivienne came to live in Spain from her native Newcastle with a view to take early retirement.
Instead, she bought a gym!
Despite having no experience in the fitness industry, she was a natural and, along with her then partner and now husband Michael – a keen body builder – soon created a special place that was loved by staff and members alike.
A couple of years later, they decided it was time to build Quesada’s first purpose-built gym.
Vivienne says: “This is the biggest risk of my life but I am rewarded daily by wonderful staff and members. We are trying to break the mould of impersonal gyms by creating a community where there are no age, sex or nationality barriers and are delighted to say it is working. We have never had so much fun – with hard work and dedication.
Our tag is More than Just a Gym – and that is what we are determined to always be.”
