...and that's a wrap.
Wow. BLK BOX LIVE went off with a bang. Firstly, to those who bought tickets and attended the weekend, thank you very much. We hope you enjoyed every second of it.
BLK BOX LIVE took place over two days at our HQ in Belfast. It was an opportunity for us to open the doors and give a behind-the-scenes look at where the magic happens in our manufacturing warehouse and showroom. It was also our chance to showcase and experience our new in-house retail store, which, lots of you seemed to enjoy.
It's quite difficult to put into words the atmosphere in which Friday night's 'Under The Lights' event created. The energy on the warehouse turned competition floor energy was electrifying. The grandstand was packed full of enthusiastic onlookers. A huge thank you to Scott Britton and Sam Cornforth for taking to the mic and entertaining the crowd for the evening.
Saturday saw some of the top leading coaches and industry leaders take the microphone in our showroom turned seminar space. We want to extend a huge thank you to Ollie Marchon and Coach Jenz from Marchon & The PFCA, Omnia Performance, Redpill Training and Nick Winkleman for sharing their wisdom and knowledge with the BLK BOX community.
Between BLK BOX Athlete Emma McQuaid going unbroken in practically all three workouts, to 14-year-old Lucy McGonigle winning the hearts of the crowd, it was a night to remember.
The men's lineup of athletes certainly didn't disappoint. From our homegrown athletes PD Savage, Micky Walsh and Micky Smith, to some of the top CrossFit Athletes in the UK & Europe, Harrison Bell and Dan Tai, it was all eyes on the competition floor as they all battled for the BLK BOX Live Winning title. Savage and McQuaid were crowned the Winners of the night, taking home Male and Female first place.
We'd also like to extend our thanks to our partners at Turf Games for hosting a serious session in our workshop area. It was great hosting you at our HQ. Alongside this workshop, we had the fantastic Sean Brown and Team Training guys who kept everyone on their toes with gymnastic and weightlifting sessions. There was nowhere to hide when these guys took the reigns. Thank you for putting our attendees through their paces and helped them work off their Slims Healthy Kitchen burgers and beers.
The day was spent taking notes, selfies and purchasing the new BLK BOX apparel range, that launched just in time for the event. You can still purchase the range here.
A special thank you to Slims Healthy Kitchen, Nocco Ireland, All Real and The Butcha's Dog for attending the weekend too and keeping everyone fed and watered. We could continue to talk about the event as there were so many highlights, but we will wrap it up here. Thank you to everyone who made it so special.
