What are you doing the last weekend in September?
We’ve BOX’ed off 2 days to host our first ever LIVE event and you’re invited.
What a year it's been! We’ve been super busy and haven’t had a chance to show you what we’ve been up to. So, we’ve decided to have a belated celebration for the big move to our new HQ because….well, why not? We’ve missed connecting with you, so we are going FULL SEND!
What is BLK BOX LIVE?
Taking place over two days at our HQ in Belfast, it will be a jam-packed weekend of training, spectating and learning from the best functional training and performance coaches in the industry. Be the first to check out the new products we've been developing and experience our new in-house retail store...surprise!
We also want to show you around our new space, giving you a new sneak peak of where the magic happens in our manufacturing warehouse and of course our showroom gym! Come prepared because there will be oodles of competitions, activities and challenges. After all, it is our first ever live event.
WHAT'S HAPPENING & WHEN?
Friday - ‘Under the lights’
On Friday we will kick off kick off ‘Under The Lights’, which will be a warm up to the weekend. Transforming our warehouse into an event arena with staging and grandstand seating, you’ll get to watch top athletes throwing it down together, going head-to-head for a BLK BOX title.
Watch the action unfold and tuck into delicious burgers from Slims Kitchen- a local Belfast favourite…obviously washing it down with a beer...or two.
Saturday - 'The Pursuit of Better'
Saturday will be split into 2 separate sections – Seminars and Workshops. The day will consist of 4 main themes and we promise you will leave with top industry leading guidance and expertise.
- Functional Fitness Training
During the seminars, we will be going down the rabbit hole with the crème de la crème, who will be sharing their stories, experiences and expertise, and once you find out who they are, it will be hard to resist. Drum roll please…

When we said BLK BOX Live would be big, we meant it.
We’re not one for overcomplicating things and we could do without the faff of getting invites printed (plus, you know, the waste etc) so get your tickets here and use your unique code to get past the bouncers.
As our first event, to say we are buzzing is an understatement
So, shall we call it a date?
