Q&A

How does Gymbox as a brand reflect your personality?

Gymbox as a brand always attempts to keep things fun and light-hearted but at the same time takes training and physical fitness very seriously. My friends know that while I am serious during training, I have a fun and slightly crazy side to me as well.

What music style describes you?

Blues-Rock, passionate and calming at times but with the tendency to get wild when the time is right.

What is your guilty pleasure?

There's this tomato and mozzarella croissant at Pret A Manger. I absolutely adore it, especially when it's fresh out of the oven. The problem is that it's the exact opposite of what I should be eating so I try to have it once in two weeks to treat myself.

What is your favourite thing about Gymbox?

My favourite thing about Gymbox is how it always tries to be unique from other gyms , be it through humour or variation in classes.

Who is your favourite rockstar?

I would have to say John Mayer, I am a great fan of him and his music.
