Having opened up on Street Lane in August this year, Feel Electric is a new breed of gym, allowing you to maximise your workout with Electro Muscle Stimulation (EMS). EMS activates all of the major muscle groups in your body, improving your metabolism and helping to firm and tone your body. The gym provides clothes powered by the latest Bodytec equipment which sends low frequency electrical impulses to your muscles, forcing them to contract and become stronger. Just 20 minutes of EMS training will help you achieve similar results to a two-hour high intensity impact training session.
This new café opening in January is owned by mother and daughter duo Kairen Kukalizch-Cobb and Siobhan Pinder and is the product of a lifelong dream for Kairen, who’s had her eye on 71 Street Lane as a premises for quite some time. When Siobhan agreed to the venture, the property became available just a week later and the duo knew it was meant to be. Roundhay Park will keep things local, serving sweet treats made on-site, using bread from Street Lane Bakery, and even using coffee beans roasted in Leeds. Once the café is up and running the pair also plan to host events such as speed dating evenings and gin tastings.
