Since the opening of our first club in Holborn, in SeptemberGymbox has really been the original boutique. What makes your group exercise special?
These have to feel immersive, and each studio has to perfectly accommodate the classes it will host, with a great balance between design and functionality: We then work with our interior designers and lighting designers to create unique spaces, all designed around the classes that will run Gymbox farringdon classes there.
We also have our creative team, who come up with all these new ideas to ensure our offering is constantly evolving. How do "Gymbox farringdon classes" draw the line between creativity and gimmicks? Our approach has always been to combine design and credibility, so we have visually spectacular clubs and eye-catching classes, but also aim to deliver a really great, effective product.
From the outset, that approach was underpinned by the relationship between Richard Hilton, founder of Gymbox and myself. At Gymbox, the advertising and branding has always been strong, but we also deliver on the "Gymbox farringdon classes" How has Gymbox evolved? Our Holborn club was revolutionary when it opened inbecause the look and feel was very different.
Instead of doing combat classes in the studio tucked away in the corner, for example, we had Olympic-size boxing rings on the gym floor. We paid a lot of attention to the lighting and the music. We used materials that gave the club a gritty, industrial chic that suited the London market. Gymbox emerged onto the market with a unique tone of voice and way of training, and it hit that sweet spot in terms of Gymbox farringdon classes to to year-old Londoners.
The clubs that followed were similarly distinct, and new ideas continued to flow from our ongoing relationship with Patrick. We introduced areas hosting huge functional frames for CrossFit-style classes.
As a result, instead of having two studios, a boxing ring and a cycling studio, some of our new clubs have six, seven, eight areas where we can run classes.
We have a fantastic, fluid studio design for this — a huge, immersive space that "Gymbox farringdon classes" onto the gym floor. Victoria has been a very interesting project. The original club quickly became very busy, so when we Gymbox farringdon classes presented with an opportunity to open a second gym just a two-minute Gymbox farringdon classes away, we leapt on it.
That second location has now become the main gym. Meanwhile, the original site has been refurbished to hold the studios: Members get access to both sites. What are your plans going forward? We have two more clubs opening in London in — Cannon Street in the summer and Ealing towards the end of the year — to take us to a total of 11 locations. We also see Gymbox working in other big cities in the UK, as well as internationally. Gymbox was always intended to be the antidote to boring gyms and I believe we still deliver on that.
Everything we do is about making sweating fun, from the environments we build to the classes we teach. That was the case when we set out inand it still rings true today.
