Bodystreet’s 1st Anniversary Party

Bodystreet’s first anniversary party at the end of June saw around 70 guests come along to the Holzweg studio to celebrate the first year of the business since it opened in April 2013.

After welcoming the guests, the studio’s owner, Carolyn Cozzo gave an insight into how she first discovered the Bodystreet franchise and why she decided to open her own studio in Oberursel.  In doing so, she highlighted how the concept fits in with the needs of a modern lifestyle.

She was followed by trainer Theo Coenen, who gave a short talk on nutrition and how it needs to be planned around the training, after which the buffet was officially opened.

The buffet itself contained both sweet and savoury items made with the protein powder that the studio normally uses to make shakes, proving that it is more versatile than many may believe.

All that was left was for Matthias Lehner, one of the founders of the Bodystreet concept, to deliver the birthday wishes from head office, before those who had not tried out the EMS machines before had the chance to have a go or book a trial session.
