Ability Bow Merchandise Survey

Ability Bow has enlisted the help of five students from Queen Mary University of London to develop a business plan for Ability Bow merchandise.The QConsult Team are part of the university's QConsult programme.

To begin their research, the QConsult Team have created a survey to gather thoughts, feedback, and ideas from our current gym members around merchandise. We want to know the items, products, and clothing you would like to wear, use, and be proud of.

Please take the survey to help us develop Ability Bow's merchandise.
