Northwich life is a great life, and I should know because I have lived here for most of my life. Moving to a new area can be really daunting so it’s great to have a bit of an overview to give to people who might not be sure where to fit in and how to make friends quickly when moving into a new town.
So, what are the things about Northwich Life that would make me suggest to someone thinking of moving here, that this is absolutely the best place to live? Well, there are rather a lot of options, but I am going to talk about the things that I love the most. The Northwich gym that I run and have put my heart and soul into over the last 2 years, the amazing walks that are all sat on my doorstep and the location and fantastic places to buy property.
My Northwich Gym – Team Training UK
Several years ago now I was brave enough to set up and run the Northwich gym known as MPA with my ex-business partner. As is often the way with new businesses, the energy and enthusiasm wanes and unfortunately, we had different ideas of where we wanted to take the business. This crossroads ended up being a blessing for me and my new gym was born. A venture that I decided to pursue on my own so that I could control the gym to be based around my passion for community, competition, friendships, mental health, and of course amazing exercise coaching!
I now run a gym providing personal training in Northwich in a private facility.
Why does this make Northwich Life great?
Well, it’s because I also run team training UK from there which is group personal training and the perfect place to make new friends if you are new to Northwich. These classes always make sure everyone gets involved and trains at their level, but we also meet outside of the gym too which is the key.
Team Training have hikes and walks at the weekend and meet up socially in surrounding areas for drinks and pub quizzes too when we get the chance. Hikes and walks can be in the wonderful Marbury Park, along the river Weaver, Anderton and further afield to Macclesfield Forest. Drinks have been held in The Hartford Hall, The Kingfisher at Kingsmead Northwich and Gusto and The Lost and Found in Knutsford.
So, my gym is really a great place to come and make friendships while changing your lifestyle for the better too.
Weekend life and walking local to the Northwich area:
One of my favourite things about my life living in Northwich is that there are so many great walks really on my doorstep. I have lived on Kingsmead for most of my time here and have loved being able to nip onto the wonderful River weaver walk within 2 minutes of leaving my house. This walk can go all the way along to Winsford and beyond if you really want tot test your legs.
In the neighbouring Hartford Marshall’s Arm woods also brings you to the River Weaver but on the opposite side for a completely different walk. If you take the tip road opposite Pure Gym in Northwich there is another wonderful walk that can take you around Anderton and Marbury taking in the beautiful canal routes. Walking from Anderton can also take you all the way to The Leigh Arms for a well-earned pie and a pint too.
Property and location in Northwich
Northwich is a great location with property prices just that little bit cheaper that Hartford or Knutsford and great rail links to all over the county. The Northwich rail line can take you to Chester and Hartford one way, and Manchester, Altrincham, and Knutsford the other. Northwich is also up and coming with many bars and restaurants opening over the last few years and a funky food court market like the one in Altrincham promised over the coming year. We have a good cinema, a fantastic Waitrose, and some amazing schools in Hartford just down the road.
Overall Northwich is a great place to live and if you are looking to get fit and make new friends this January then get yourself along to my gym too and I will welcome you in!
