#LIFTMANCHESTER Gymshark Event Blog
Updated: Sep 12, 2019
It seemed appropriate to dedicate my first official blog post to the spectacular event of #liftmanchester, the fitness fanatics dream event. For me and my two friends, who I must note accompanied me even though we had to catch a 9AM coach to a city none of us had ever stepped foot in before, it was a rollercoaster of a day which I will hold close to my heart forever.
Picture this: A place completely packed with people who share the same love and passion for your favourite thing as you do. That was how it felt to step into Victoria Warehouse to be greeted by hundreds of Gymshark loving people, all wearing the brand from head to toe- and grinning ear to ear.
The highlight of the event was the meet and greets with beloved athletes as well as some fresh faces that were equally as amazing and whom I enjoyed meeting. Words can not describe how completely amazed and humbled I felt meeting my hero, Whitney Simmons (I'm still not over it..)
Gymshark has held many pop-up events in cities around the world, for example Sydney, London and Amsterdam to name a handful. Clearly the Gymshark athletes have to cope with a lot of travelling, however, they all had incredible enthusiasm and were definitely looked after and well rested.
I can not sing praise enough towards this incredible company and everything they stand for, As a company which grew from a small group of people in the UK and only have nine stores it is clear as they take over the world that thy do everything possible to take care of their athletes and fans like me by organising such FREE pop-up events to make sure anyone and everyone can feel included and represented.
I did purchase 2 exclusive items from the event and will be posing a full review soon so please stay tuned and thank you for reading!
