Heitiare Tribondeau, Miss Tahiti 2003 sought to engage in entrepreneurship. Dismayed to learn that the Star Gym Vaima Centre would be placed in liquidation, decided to repurchase the equipment and resume local. It saves the shot two jobs and the room of 400 athletes.
A new business opens its doors to Vaima Centre. It is called Vaima Fitness Club, and takes the place of Star Gym, which was in serious financial difficulties. To find out, an open day was held this Friday, April 8, where all the activities offered by the hall will be free.
Feature of the initiative is Miss Tahiti 2003 Heitiare Tribondeau, which bought the business and is the manager. A beautiful new project for this hyperactive woman who engages in the business when it already has a framework for Wan group and a baby on the way ... Interview.
Heitiare Tribondeau, "the opportunity presented itself and it's true that we have good equipment, good teachers"
Tahiti Info: Hello Heitiare, you just buy the Star Gym Vaima
Heitiare Tribondeau: "Yes, I bought Star Gym March 7, knowing that on March 8 he had to shut down I was a client, and for me it suited me whether at Vaima and not because Titioro. Titioro, I was forced each time to cross the city ... "
So you're thrown in entrepreneurship is much work
"Especially since I still work in the Wan group (laughs). So it is true that the management of the gym, I make more. I've just before 8am and after 17h and on weekends ... It's my first business, but you should be fine. I'm optimistic! "
So it's been a month since the club reopened?
"Actually it was never closed, that is why we bought the 7. So it's going to do a month it continued to run, but we want to officially announce the new name, the new tariff, new management. I bought with my partner, but it is I who handles. it's an adventure for two, like my baby! "
Congratulations! And what will be the new name of the room?
"It will Vaima Fitness Club. Club, because it feels like being a member of an association or part of a family. And the rates were revised according to customers. For example there were who were only the muscu but paid a price + fitness Bodybuilding, so obviously they were a little harm. And it was also a youth fare, we must say that we often see in town bored, so if that's to occupy…"
Other changes planned?
"Already, the room now opens at 5 am instead of 6 am, and fitness classes begin at 6 o'clock. Otherwise for now, I expect that my baby is already happening. It is planned for August 1st, and after that I plans to launch new products, but if I tell you right now there will be more surprise! but I have ideas already. "
So why get into a gym, instead, for example, a bead store ...
"While it's true that it's been a while that I wanted to take, and I do not necessarily was on a gym. Basically I am responsible for communication, I make com, marketing ... just that here, I do sport and the opportunity presented itself. I told myself that this room, it just lacks a bit of communication, because besides that it was good material, good teachers, and it is rather the general public. we just do not understand enough concepts and we do not know too much. "
Plus it is your room. If you had not bought it would have closed ...
(Laughs) "And now it really is MY room!"
It represents how many jobs?
"So there are two employees, and about five licensed, the teachers. They are not in the gym, they make more. And the employees, there is one that makes the reception and help me, and one that is prof. it's been there for years, it necessarily must be happy, it's never easy to start from scratch ... "
And how many sports are concerned?
"So when I bought I was told 400 members, now I think there is much less. Inevitably, when talking about liquidation, people do not want to engage and many arrested their subscription. But now with the open house on Friday, I hope to recover and renew their subscriptions. "
How do you manage pregnancy, business and work at the same time?
"Look, I do not know how it's done, but for now it goes rather well. In every institution where I am I do have a good team on which to rest, and I also have a partner who support me! " (source texte : ©Tahiti-Infos)
