FRIDAY 25TH OCTOBER
What is Coaches Corner?
Each month, we will be hosting Coaches Corner, an education and networking evening at BLK BOX Headquarters. The idea behind these free workshops is to provide valuable education for athletes of all levels who want to optimise their training. This is also a great way to meet likeminded people within the industry.
The topic will vary, from Weightlifting, CrossFit, Kettlebells, Strength and Conditioning, nutrition-focused and more! We would like to encourage you to join in the conversation and help make a difference to those we coach and train alongside.
