Rethinking a Gym Franchise
Boxing Inc. houses an array of talented, experienced trainers. Their brand chose to showcase this while staying inviting to those new to the sport. Our task was to develop a new website that matched their brand vision as well as add a calendar system so visitors can keep track of classes.
During our research foundation stage we came up with an idea to use subtle dark color scheme with rugged photography. This created a nexus between an enterprise-level fitness facility and a local box gym that defined Boxing Inc.’s methodology.
Boxing Inc. is a gym franchise that has multiple locations around town. Our job was to redesign their old site and bring new eCommerce as well as calendar functionality to their users.
People join gyms and fitness centers for a variety of reasons, but one of the most popular is certainly to improve their appearance. With this in mind, Boxing Inc. needed vivid and active high-quality photography as the base of the majority of its brand refresh.
Joel Grimes with his focus on HDR sports photography was the perfect match for this project. Along with a host of models, Grimes produced the in-gym action shots which helped to brand Boxing Inc. as a destination point for customers looking to get fit through non-traditional means.
Boxing Inc is not just a pretty site, it’s loaded with functionality. For starters there is a fully fledged store built right into the site where Boxing Inc. can sell all of their merchandise.
There is also classes calendar that automatically syncs with trainers so users can pick a trainer and then see where that trainer is teaching as well as what he is teaching. Calendar even recognizes different areas in each gym separately, this allows for multiple classes to happen at the same time at each location.
