What’s old sometimes becomes new again. After nearly two decades an antiques store, a double-storey Victorian has given way to the of-the-moment wellness movement. Sum of Us has renewed the space with the help of local interior designers We Are Huntly. Now it’s a reinvigorating health studio (certainly don’t call it anything as basic as a “gym”) complete with multiple balconies, a courtyard, a loft and a health-conscious cafe dealing in kombucha, sushi jars and espresso. Sum of Us offers physiotherapy, podiatry and dietetics consultancies plus intimate classes in pilates, barre, eunoia meditation and yoga; choose from Vinyasa, Hatha or Yin. Your instructor wears Jaggad, natch. Let’s just say that even if your glutes are burning at least your eyes won’t be.
