Gymbox presents Pridebox Pop-Up Week
July 2, 2019 @ 8:15 pm - 9:00 pm
An event every day that begins at 8:15 pm, repeating until July 4, 2019
Pride is a sparkling jewel in any Londoner’s social crown and this year Gymbox is lending its party prowess to make 2019’s celebrations the sweatiest yet.
Introducing Pridebox: a pop-up week of fully-inclusive classes, with 100% of ticket sales going to Switchboard, the LGBT+ helpline which aims to ensure all LGBT+ people are informed and empowered.
Gymbox invites members, non-members, exercise addicts, fitness-phobes, allies and identifiers of every part of the LGBT+ spectrum to connect, work out and get parade-ready…all while supporting a charity that encourages individuals to find their own sense of pride.
One week. Four classes. Get ready for London’s most inclusive party at the club where Anything Goes.
Gymbox are also walking in the parade during the weekend so don’t forget to look out for them amongst the festivities!
Monday 1st July – Swole Sisters with Tizzy Von Tassel / 20:15-21:00
It’s the tale of Beauty & the Beef as burlesque bombshell Tizzy von Tassel teams up with Gymbox’s very own Dino Portelli to host a special edition comeback of Pump Chasers, a unique, limited edition class which was introduced in January. As the name suggests, this weights-based workout is here to get you Pride ready and seriously swole: working those muscles with blood flow restriction training to get your muscles popping for parade.
Tuesday 2nd July – Gymbox is Burning / 20:15-21:15
Category is: waack and vogue REALNESS. King of shapes Jahmal Crick is here to slay, sashay and take Pridebox away to the iconic poses of 1980’s Harlem. Learn how to catwalk, duckwalk and dip like a ballroom legend as we throw it back to an era that forged a legacy of fierceness for LGBT+ communities across the globe.
Wednesday 3rd July – Kinky Glutes with La Voix / 20:15-21:15
Whoever said ‘no pain, no gain’ has clearly never pumped iron with a drag queen before. In a fabulous one-off edition of Gymbox’s Gains class, the dazzling La Voix will be there to coach you through every rep of this bulk-boosting weights workout, helping you build up your load and work on your technique.
Let’s face it…her jokes are already writing themselves.
Thursday 4th July – PrideCurious LGBT Mindfulness Class / 19:15-20:15
‘Former monk’ and ‘mindfulness master’ are both impressive credits to Nick Kientsch’s name, but his commitment to promoting wellness within the LGBT+ community…well that really blows us away. Join us for a quiet hour of meditation ahead of the busy weekend, taking a moment to re-energise your truest selves and reconnect with what makes you feel proud.
