Dawn & Rob’s Bod Pod Episode 12 – Equilibrium Studios launch

The Bod Pod is full of inspiration and encouragement towards better fitness and health from personal trainer Rob Carr and fitness enthusiast Dawn Clare.

This time Dawn is invited to the grand opening of Equilibrium Studios in Rake to meet the founders and some of their clients.

Founders Ryan and Dan say their mission is to help men and women get into the best shape of their lives and stay that way through sustainable fitness and nutrition coaching.

Dawn asks Ryan about the new centre

The evening started with a ribbon cutting and grand opening of the new premises, shortly followed by a charity workout to christen the new equipment and raise money for their neighbour, Focus Ability CIC.

There was a raffle to win free training, a nutrition seminar, live band, cake cutting and plenty of booze, bites and other delights….. all healthy of course!

Tumbleweed tweet turns to treat for Petersfield Bookshop

Petersfield Bookshop celebrated its centenary in 2018

Sometimes bad things have to happen before good things can. Don’t be surprised to see that statement on a motivational poster on sale at the Petersfield Bookshop in the near future.

For that’s exactly what happened this week after Storm Brendon dissuaded shoppers from venturing too far from home. Bookseller Robert Sansom, who administers the bookshop’s Twitter account, issued a tweet summing up a historic, but disappointing day, for the 102-year-old business.

It said: “…Tumbleweed… Not a single book sold today… £0.00… We think this may be the first time ever…”

Robert Sansom inadvertently provided a huge boost for the Petersfield Bookshop

Sympathetic book lovers retweeted the poignant message and it was picked up and subsequently retweeted by world-renowned Portsmouth-born science fiction author Neil Gaiman … and that created a digital domino effect as the retweets gathered pace and the bookshop received online orders from right across the world totalling £1,000 within just a few hours.

And, following on from hundreds of orders, came dozens of calls from the world’s media …

Petersfield Community Radio’s Dave Bowers spoke with Robert Sansom about an extraordinary 48 hours.
