Most London gyms are pretty happy to stick to a tried and true format. You turn up, pay a membership fee, and get to pumping the iron or jogging on the treadmill. But, let’s be honest – it can be very boring. Enter Gymbox, the workout group that is constantly adding to its offering of workouts (including mental workouts and physical exercises) and dreaming up the most OTT promotions and partnerships. Their latest sweaty addition to London’s workout scene? The ‘Chicken Shop Challenge’, which sees them partnering with the iconic chicken shop Morley’s to give out free fried chicken and free gym memberships.
What’s the challenge?
On February 1, Gymbox will transform the Brick Lane Morley’s into a chicken-shop-cum-gym, complete with a live DJ and an assault bike right in the middle of the shop. Hop on and give it all you’ve got and you could win a year’s membership to Gymbox.
And if it’s chicken you’re after, well, anyone who jumps on and gives the challenge a go will bag themselves free wings (plus a day pass to Gymbox).
If you don’t fancy a go on the bike you can still enjoy the atmosphere – and you’ll even get a free order of wings with any meal.
Accompanying the Chicken Shop Challenge, Gymbox and Morley’s have teamed up on a Willy-Wonka-esque golden ticket giveaway. They’ve hidden Gymbox golden tickets inside 200 Morley’s chicken boxes, entitling the finder to a free one-day Gymbox pass. The Golden tickets are available in chicken boxes purchased between today (January 24) and the end of the month (January 31).
But what if you’re already a Gymbox member? And what if you’ve already endured leg day and also want some free fried chicken? You’re in luck because Gymbox members can grab free wings from any Morley’s location until February 11. All you have to do is show your Gymbox app and use the secret code “bossmangymbox101”.
The Big Chicken Shop Challenge will take place on February 1, between 6-8pm, at Morley’s Brick Lane, E1 6RF.
