INTRODUCING BLK BOX
After making the decision to rebrand away from EFP Gyms, finding a name finding a name which reflects both our brand and company ethos has proven one of our toughest challenges to date. With our current expansion into new markets across the world we found that our main issue was brand recognition. As a new and innovative company that is constantly evolving it became clear that we were not communicating our message and even underselling our unique products & services. Our strapline ‘Intelligent Fitness Systems’ is based on the premises that every piece of equipment we manufacture is part of an intelligent modular ecosystem.
