London-based fitness chain Gymbox has unveiled a series of original out-of-home (OOH) billboards to showcase its range of unique classes.


The headlines are intended to read like snippets of conversation that might take place at Gymbox

The bold posters, in collaboration with creative agency BMB, aim to celebrate the brand’s ethos of making gym life less predictable and more fun.


At first glance, the copy may seem confusing, but the headlines are intended to read like snippets of conversation that might take place at Gymbox by weaving in some of the quirky classes that the fitness center offers including Drill Sergeant, Hangxiety, Suspenders and Beastmode.

“Gymbox is not your typical gym – it has a sense of humor, for a start,” said Rory McEntee, brand and marketing director at Gymbox.

“This playful campaign perfectly encapsulates the brand’s mischievous side. Featuring some of our most popular class names, these headlines wouldn’t sound out of place being spoken by any of our members. It’s fair to say [that] some things only make sense at Gymbox.”


Media was bought by the7stars and Jack Media for the campaign, which will also be supported by social media throughout the year.

Matt Lever, chief creative officer at BMB, said: “Everyone wants to learn a new language in January and we’ve got one that’s far more interesting than conversational French. Because when you speak the language of Gymbox, you become fluent in some of the most exciting and unusual exercise classes London has to offer.”
