ABOUT THIS EVENT

We are delighted to have Heather Rowland as our keynote speaker at our ‘Women Who Lead’ breakfast. Merit’s theme for October is ‘Wellness for your body and mind’, where motivation and grit play a key role.

HILARY ROWLAND

In 2009 Hilary moved to London full time to be with her now business partner and husband Robert. A firm believer in having multiple passions, Hilary remained a model but knew there was something else on the horizon. Keeping fit was one of her passions and she found that London lacked boutique fitness concepts that were proven to be dominating the market overseas. It was from this moment Hilary found her next calling - this is where Boom Cycle was born. In 2011 raising funds through investment and personal capital, Hilary and Robert opened their first Boom Cycle studio in Shoreditch, deemed the first-ever boutique spin studio in the UK. Since then the power couple have opened a further studio in Holborn in 2014, 2 further locations in Hammersmith and Battersea in 2017, a location in Monument in 2018 and are set to open in Waterloo September 24th 2019.

Alongside being the face, co-founder and creative director of Boom Cycle Hilary still instructs across all of Boom Cycle’s sites. She enjoys life through a balanced lifestyle and is focused on building her Booming empire, personal ambitions and keeping fit, healthy and up to date with the latest fitness trends, London has to offer.
