Business Related Questions

Which part of Yorkshire is your business based? 

Our business Millfield Studios is based in York, North Yorkshire with a facility for face to face group classes and now an online virtual studio.

Tell us a little bit about your business - What makes your business a little different from others?

Run together by Debbie Jenkins and Lucy Nickson and our small team of instructors, Millfield Studios aims to bridge the gap between community fitness and wellbeing classes and larger less personal gym facilities.

Our studio is a personal group fitness, yoga, and Pilates studio where we offer more than just classes, we have built up our community with fun, friendly and effective classes, social online events, cookery workshops and regular challenges to keep our clients motivated.

What’s your favourite ever product or service that you currently sell or have sold?

Whilst we love teaching all our classes our Mums and Women’s group personal training programme is one of our top services where likeminded women can feel supported and motivated to exercise consistently and make positive changes to their health and wellbeing. This programme includes weekly workouts, recipe, and nutrition ideas and instructor and group support to ensure everyone stays on track and gets the support they need to achieve their goals.

Why did you choose this business to run or establish? 

Millfield Studio’s was born from wanting to provide the personal feel to group classes you get when running in the community with the high-quality facilities you would expect from a larger corporate facility.

How are you pivoting or adapting your business during this crazy Covid virus time?

We had to take the decision to close our building on 16th March this year due to the global pandemic and move our studio classes online. We have just re opened this week but after such huge success of our online platform we are now running a hybrid of both in person, live streamed and pre recorded Fitness, Yoga and Pilates Classes.


What is your one product or service you would recommend for either a pregnant woman, newborn mom, or for babies, toddlers, or young children? 

I guess a big thing we have learned working with pregnant mums to be and mums of new-borns/toddlers that finding a community of other like-minded mum’s/women is so valuable to help you with your own physical, Mental health and wellbeing, meeting other new mum’s/mums to be and providing support for each other in the wonderful world of parenthood.

If there is anything else, you would need to know about what we offer just ask.
