Idea

BLOK is a boutique gym launched in Clapton, Hackney in Q1 2016 and has just opened in Shoreditch, on the edge of the City of London.

Revenue streams include classes, workshops, personal training, merchandise/retail, food/drink and event/location hire. In 2017, we turned over £825k (EBITDA £148.5k) and generated £122K revenue in March 18, up 92% yoy.

We have seen international press acclaim since launch. BLOK's loyal community includes celebrities and influencers who actively promote BLOK on social media, strengthening the brand and driving footfall. BLOK has hosted global stars such as Anthony Joshua, Jourdan Dunn, Kayla Itsines, Conor Benn and Alicia Vikander and has featured on Britain's Next Top Model and Made in Chelsea.

BLOK hosts shoots and events from the world’s major sport and leisure brands, generating £92k additional revenue in 2017 and creating global exposure for the BLOK brand. Hosted brands include Nike, Adidas, Reebok, Under Armour, Puma, Lucozade, Smart Water and Warner Bros.

BLOK Manchester is due to open Q4 2018, 1 min from Manchester Piccadilly, with 3 large studios and capacity equal to BLOK Shoreditch.

We are seeking investment to open further UK sites and to expand across Europe and the US.
