Manchester was a natural choice for the third Blok as it is such a key location for art, design, fashion and technology.
– Reema Stanbury

Functional fitness operator Blok has revealed plans to take its boutique concept outside of London for the first time.

Blok currently operates two sites in the heart of East London – in Clapton and Shoreditch – and has announced it will open its third site on the edge of Manchester's creative Northern Quarter.

Set to open in July, Blok Manchester will mirror the existing London sites and deliver signature classes across three exercise studios.

In total, there will be 25 different classes on offer, ranging from barre, boxing and yoga to bespoke classes, such as BLOKfit – in which members will be able to craft their own work-out plan with the help of trainers – and BLOKsculpt, a full-body workout.

Blok was founded by three business partners, Ed Stanbury, Max Oppenheim and Reema Stanbury.

“Manchester was a natural choice for the third Blok as it is such a key location for art, design, fashion and technology," said co-founder Stanbury.

"We are drawn to creative hubs and Manchester, especially the Northern Quarter, has a thriving and growing creative community. Our goal has always been to create more than just a gym and for every Blok site to be a genuine destination.”
