A partnership between Pure Gym and BLK BOX is challenging the low-cost model

PureGym is the UK’s leading gym operator and first chain to successfully reach over a million members. The company is now celebrating its 100th Functional Training Zone (FTZ); a radical concept that five years ago would have seemed unachievable.

The unique 1,000sq ft concept was created in collaboration with equipment specialist, BLK BOX, whose challenge was to maintain PureGym’s market leader position by enhancing the space and offering of its low-cost gym model.

Strong partnership
“The partnership between PureGym and BLK BOX has been nothing but positive,” says Richard Annetts, model and equipment manager at PureGym. “The BLK BOX team have been with us every step of the way. Their creativity and superior knowledge have made them a fantastic sounding board as we introduce the new Functional Training Zones across the PureGym estate.”

With close to 250 PureGyms across the UK, the company shows no signs of slowing down. As it continue to disrupt the budget gym market with a bold and innovative strategy, the focus remains on delivering real value to members – an ambition BLK BOX fully supports.

“Working with PureGym has been an extremely exciting challenge for everyone at BLK BOX,” says Miles Canning, the company’s head of product. “We spent a year working on and refining a concept which would differentiate PureGym from its competitors and – more importantly – increase member satisfaction.”

Equipped with the latest functional training equipment, the FTZs are designed to excite PureGym members and inspire personal trainers. The zones are a thoroughly engaging space and are adaptive for one-to-one workouts and group classes.

Positioned prominently, the FTZs vibrant turf, along with custom functional training rigs create a remarkable feature throughout the estate. This is a partnership that’s continuing to thrive and we look forward to seeing what they have in store for next year.
