Customer Demonstrates Resilience as Second Gym is Launched as Covid Restrictions are Relaxed

Gyms were badly hit during Covid with national lockdowns forcing months of closures.  Although devastated at having to close the doors of Boundary CrossFit Lisburn not long after launching their business, owners Stuart Briggs and Dave Adams turned the situation into a positive by diverting their energies into a new project in Belfast’s Harbour Estate.

With uncertainty surrounding when restrictions on gyms would be lifted, Stuart and Dave pushed ahead with their plans and set about transforming a 5000 sq. ft space into Boundary CrossFit 2.0. Fortune favours the brave, as  only a few short weeks after the project was completed, an announcement was made on the easing on restrictions and Boundary were able to plan for the launch of their new CrossFit gym in Belfast.

With time on their hands, despite the new gym being smaller than their Lisburn premises, careful planning allowed for more equipment in addition to a chill out zone complete with coffee machines, fridges, snacks and of course seating, offering their customers a space to wind down and refuel after training.

Stuart first came to Capitol when he was launching Boundary CrossFit Lisburn. Having previously worked in the retail sector he had come across Capitol’s coffee brand, Smokin’ Bean.  He loved the taste and what it stood for and knew it would be a good fit for his customers. Capitol’s partnership with leading coffee machine manufacturers, WMF, meant that not only were Capitol able to supply the coffee, but we were able to supply a reliable bean to cup coffee machine which matched the needs of Boundary and their customers. In addition to the coffee and the coffee machine, Capitol were also able to supply Stuart and Dave with cups, lids, sugars and all their product needs. And we’re also there for any servicing needs that may arise leaving Stuart and Dave to concentrate on their gyms. The one stop coffee solution works well for Boundary and they had no hesitation in continuing their relationship with Capitol for their new enterprise.

We’re  pleased that Boundary have been able to welcome customers back to their Lisburn premises and wish them well with their new Belfast venture.

Capitol supply complete coffee solutions for businesses across a wide range of sectors with a variety of coffee brands to choose from and equipment to match the needs of your business and your customers so why not get in touch.
