In case you haven’t realised, I am slightly obsessed with unicorns! And with my sister owning the Metafit franchise, I am constantly on the lookout for new & exciting fitness things too. So when I came across the Unicorn Fitness Box, it was like they had magically combined us together with our favourite things…
Your name: Nadine Ackermann
Business name: Unicorn Fitness Box
How did you choose this name: Who doesn’t love Unicorns, surprises and fitness stuff
What do you do: A contributor to the corporate machine by day, supplier of magical fitness stuff by night. And weekend.
What sort of things do you include in your boxes: Each month we include items from the fitness industry in the categories of apparel, equipment, nutrition, recovery and education. We have found awesome local startups that are dying for a platform to get their product out there in the hands of their target market. You will find something for everybody no matter what form of fitness you’re in to, weather you are a seasoned athlete or a newbie to fitness. Magical Fitness Stuff. Delivered.
How did you start this business: The need for me arose when I kept seeing these awesome products available, but could never justify the spend on something I might only use once. So I got a couple of brands together that I liked and gave it a try on the ladies in my gym. The response I got was great, it was also a ton of fun to do. Our subscribers love the idea of getting things that they say they would never have thought of getting for themselves. At our gym we have one or two ladies that also have small gym equipment based start up and seeing them struggle to move stock and make sales was also a great assurance to me that this idea could be needed.
Social media handles: Facebook & Instagram
How can people place their order, & how much are the subscription boxes: Log on to our website and select from 1 of 3 magical subscriptions. 1 month, 4 month and a year. We start at R565.00 a month with shipping and delivery included. For this you get 4 to 7 items in each box, with a value of R700 to R1200.
If a company wants to get involved, how can they get hold of you: Drop us a mail on firstname.lastname@example.org and we can get chatting! Every single item that goes into our box is carefully selected, defiantly tested and purchased and paid for. This allows us to up hold our brand as a premium and exclusive subscription with accountability to our subscribers from us and our suppliers.
