FixMyRun, Manchester’s first and only certified running technique specialist, has selected Anchorage Salford Quays as its new home.
The new occupiers will take up 1,184 sq ft, within the scheme’s wellbeing studio in the recently renovated ground floor of Anchorage 2, providing tenants and other local running enthusiasts with easy access to professional support.
Headed up by business partners Joe Best and osteopath Alex Green, FixMyRun will provide training sessions and injury rehabilitation, as well as specially curated programmes designed to help both keen and aspiring athletes reach peak performance when training.
Anchorage 2 is now fully let, with c.30,000 sq ft of space remaining at Anchorage 1 following the completion of extensive renovation works in autumn 2020.
Joe Best, rehabilitation, speed and performance director at FixMyRun, commented: “We’re really excited about our move to Anchorage. Salford Quays is a very up and coming part of the city and this location is perfect for us, both geographically and strategically.”
As well as training programmes, the facility aims to develop a corporate package for businesses operating within the local area. Joe added: “Although our specialism is running, we understand that many office workers develop desk-related injuries, and we can help with that too. A common problem is lower back pain and our rehab facility is designed to identify movement dysfunction, then strengthen and mobilise the muscles and joints which are causing pain. This is really important for pain reduction and overall ease of movement.”
This latest letting at Anchorage follows Salford City Council’s recent unveiling of its plans to shape the future of the city. The proposals include splitting the city into four parts, which will include a focus on physical and mental wellbeing to ‘build on the reputation of Salford Quays as a great place to walk, run and swim’.
Ian Murray, director at Canmoor, said: “We’ve worked really hard to provide our tenants with high-quality amenities that will enhance their wellbeing and FixMyRun provides a unique offering that’s not being seen anywhere else in the city. We believe its tailored training and rehabilitation programmes will bring lots of positive outcomes for the Anchorage community and we look forward to welcoming them to the building.”
FixMyRun will open in early April 2021, in line with government Covid-19 guidelines.
Available floorplates within Anchorage 1 range from 1,884 - 5,639 sq ft.
JLL and Edwards & Co are the joint letting agents on the Anchorage scheme.
