Kieran Heggarty, a professional powerlifter had a vision that he wanted to bring to life and to have a facility he could finally call his own. In Dublin City Centre, nestled off the beaten track on Bridge Street is where you will find Everstrength Fitness, a purpose-built training facility for both private and semi-private coaching. As the facility unfolded, the premise was not the same as it was when we originally spoke to Kieran about his vision. A member of our team took a trip to Dublin to get a true understanding of what Kieran was trying to create for Everstrength Fitness and to ensure we could exceed his expectations and beyond.
Being located in an urban environment and confined space, it was our aim to maximise Everstrength's space of 6m x 13m, whilst allowing up to 20 people to train simultaneously. Due to his location, Kieran was faced with acoustic requirements from the City Council. BLK BOX provided the most suitable and affordable acoustic solution to reduce the noise and vibrations of weights dropping on the gym floor.
With the owers background being weightlifting and powerlifting, his training philosophy is based around compound movements, including the deadlift, squat and bench. With this in mind, we discussed the best solution for Kieran and the space available. This resulted in the installation of 4 Small Group Training Pods (SG Pods). "Why?" we hear you ask...
The BLK BOX SG Pods are specifically designed with small group training sessions in mind. This modular system allows multiple clients to be coached effortlessly in the one space with built-in storage for bumper plates, kettlebells and dumbbells, ensuring all equipment is within arm's reach. This design ensures a better training experience for both the coach and client and most importantly, frees floor space, making the space work harder.

For us here at BLK BOX, the most rewards aspect of this entire process is building a solid relationship with the client. With months of discussions, emails, drawings and meetings, being able to leave with a firm handshake and a new, if not stronger friendship is what we strive for every time. We aim to eliminate all the guesswork from your project and make it as stress-free as possible. Based on your specific requests and the style of training you deliver to your clients; our team can combine my experience, design knowledge and your needs, to deliver a facility that not only meets your needs but exceeds your highest expectations. Everyone at BLK BOX would like to wish Kieran continued success with his facility.
