What an amazing six months it’s been, and we’re super proud of how far we’ve come with That Place Studio… which is your place! We’ve listened to what you want, and responded with a growing timetable of classes, from everything from torso toning pilates to butt burning ballet. 

Of course, ever pushing the boundaries, we want to do more! There’s still a few renovation bits and bobs to be done to turn That Place into “Wow That Place is amazing!”… and that’s where you come in.

We crowd funded to get here in the first place, and we’re doing it again to make that place even better, and more fun. We have a series of packages you can buy. The deal being, we invest our time in training, toning and offering advice on clean living and weight loss and we invest your money back into the studio which will only make your visits more pleasurable.

The Plan?

Everyone knows us as 2Girls:1Plan though as we head towards our third birthday, yes we really are going to be 3, we have all sorts of plans now. The last one you all helped to make reality was getting our own studio.

Now everyone thinks when we say “we have our own studio” we mean that we have a room from which we teach pilates, when in reality we have 13 rooms, the whole floor of a building onJamaica Street.

The past 6 months have seen us get the lease and start the huge task of painting the blue, pink and yellow rooms and scraping off the woodchip. We have 1 ceiling left to paint white and then we have a beautiful blank canvas to work on.

Our Story

Taking off where the 1st crowdfund left us, we now have a studio, a great big spacious studio. We have filled it with some great businesses and classes. The studio has taken on a life of its own, it’s full of energetic, colourful personalities and we really want the studio to reflect this …. but it’s white, we’re stuck on white. And there’s no reflection, well that’s a lie, 1 studio has mirrors but the larger studio has no mirrors.

This is why we are crowdfunding again, for colour and reflection (and some new flooring).

We’ll be honest, spending 6 months in this white studio is driving us nuts and having a dance studio with no mirrors is like having 2Girls with no plan.

We’re proud of what we’ve done so far, reinvesting to build the studio reputation, making it the go to place for fitness, fun and dance and where small independent business can grow their own business and brand under the ‘that place’ roof.

The Finances

As before we are still making this happen by ourselves, no banks, no investors, just pure hard work! Sheer determination to make our mark on Glasgow’s dance and fitness scene.

All done on a couple of crowdfunds. Our target for this crowd fund is £2,000 raising this amount would allow us to get:

Mirrors delivered and fitted: 

Flooring: 

Painting and decorating: 

If we raise more than our target the money will be put to great use updating out other facilites making "That Place" a little more special!

"That Place" is also "Their Place" we want it to be "Your Place" so why not pop in and meet:

We loved doing our first crowdfund and can’t wait to get stuck into this one. Thank you for all your support and promises, don't forget to spread the word!
