We were so thrilled to pack out our fall calendar at Novo! We had a minimum of one special event each month, welcomed many new faces to our studio, hosted several fundraisers, and watched our clients, staff, and studio grow tremendously!
In August we held our first “Back to Novo” night, with back-to-back mini-classes, major sales on all merchandise, and special offers for new clients. As the kids returned to school, we welcomed new and old faces to the barre. It was such a fun night filled with laughter and lots of sweat!
We focused on wellness during the month of September. hosting “Wellness Morning,” complete with two classes and featuring wellness advocates in our community. We welcomed Seedling by Alicia, Premier Chiropractics, Elements Natural Medicine, Jenny with Juice Bar Columbus, and Riverside Dermatology to share wellness tips and talk about their services. We had tons of giveaways and samples, too!
The same day as our Wellness Workshop, our staff attended “Live Healthy Columbus” downtown and represented Novo along with other fitness/wellness businesses in Columbus. We were thrilled to meet so many new faces and spread the Novo love!
For breast cancer awareness in October, we brought back our popular “Barre Bro Night,” when the clients bring their man to the barre to discover “the shake” for himself! What a fun, energetic group we had! The men worked so hard, and left with a greater appreciation for what we do at Novo everyday. Even more, we were able to raise money to give to the National Breast Cancer Association!
To help support local businesses, and give our clients an amazing holiday shopping event, we hosted “Shake n’ Shop” in November. We had over 15 vendors come to sell unique, custom pieces of art and decor, as well as skin care products, jewelry, yummy treats, and more! Clients came to shop, and stayed to shake in our classes after the event!
December brought our #12daysofNovo competition, in which clients were challenged to come to Novo for classes 12 consecutive days. Despite the chaos of the holiday season, several clients accomplished this goal, and were awarded an extra one week of unlimited classes added to their memberships, as well as a Soliel soy candle of their choice!
We also focused in December on giving back to our community. We asked clients to bring in canned food items for Valley Rescue Mission, and were so happy to donate hundreds of pantry items to give back to our community. Thank you to our amazing clients for helping us achieve this goal!
Our Novo community continues to grow each month, and there is nothing we love more than welcoming new faces. But we are equally excited about our loyal, dedicated clients who continue to reach new milestones. As of the end of 2015, we have 80 clients in the #100classclub, 14 clients who have reached over 200 classes, and 6 clients with over 300 classes!
We couldn’t be more excited about everything to come in 2016! We have been working hard to improve our studio space, expand our retail selection, and maximize our class schedule. We also have even more amazing events planned for spring, so stay tuned for details on various workshops, our Power Hour Series, Buti Glo, and of course, our two year birthday!
