After 8 years of service to the Fort Worth and Texas weightlifting community, we have made the tough decision to close our doors in December.
I (Dutch) have been in the fitness industry for 15 years and seen many trends and fads come and go. Through my experiences I created a system that I believe to be the path to fitness. It’s something everyone can experience and gain from. It’s fulfilling and complete.
This system was tested over and over and provided the structure for what became BlackBox.
This system, however, was not what made BlackBox so successful. You, the people, the community, the family, is what made BlackBox a place of progress and support. You created the culture and drive that gave BlackBox a heart. Thank you.
The coaches at BlackBox have become the driving forces of stability. Shanna, Nicki, Paul, and Jess are the best in the business and I am excited for what they have achieved and what they will produce going forward. BlackBox was unable to exist without you. Thank you.
I am sorry to be letting so many of you down. It is a painful process to watch something you have built slip away due to lack of time or resources. My life is changing and as I become more busy outside the gym (you’ve met my kids . . . ) I am unable to put the time and effort into BlackBox. I refuse to let it fade and would rather close the doors than watch it slip into the shadows. Thank you all for being a special part of my family.
