Learn about who we are and what we are here to do
BoxMate all started for me back in 2015 when I was first introduced to Crossfit. Being naturally a competitive person I was instantly hooked and couldn’t get enough of the buzz of chasing that next PB. A few months into my training though, I felt that there was something missing – I found it frustrating having to check paper diaries to find out my last score for a WOD or to scroll back on the notes in my phone to remind myself of the last weight I lifted for a 1RM. This was when I first started to put the idea for a tracking platform together. I knew there were already others out there, but I wanted to create a platform that was simple and celebrated peoples’ achievements. I’ve always had a passion for website design and programming and BoxMate originally started as a personal project alongside my website business (I just gave it to my local box in return for my membership!). However, when I saw my friends and crossfit team loving and using it every single day I decided it was time to nurture BoxMate and share it!
Since our humble beginnings in 2015, I am proud to say we have now grown to share our platform with boxes around the country. Being CrossFitters ourselves we know the importance of tracking our performance and this key concept will always be at the heart of BoxMate.
We are a small, UK based team here at BoxMate HQ and our ultimate goal is to enhance peoples’ training experience and also make training fun and social. We have a strong focus on customer support and are really proud of the feedback we have from the gyms we work with on our willingness to shape our platform and take new ideas on board and respond quickly to questions.
We are literally at the other end of the phone if you have an enquiry or an issue and are always looking to improve our service which is why we regularly visit and catchup with box owners to get feedback/ideas. We also love to come and speak with the members about their experience of BoxMate- so we hope you don't mind us asking for a drop in now and then!
Thanks for reading our story – why not give our system a try – I’m sure you’re not going to be disappointed!
Danny Redfern – Owner and Developer of BoxMate.
Our absolute favourite part. As so many of us know, the other members of the box become like family and we wanted to make the community a huge part of the BoxMate experience. We care about talking and sharing our training - whether that’s to motivate someone to keep going or just to laugh with them about that box jump fail yesterday.
Keeping it simple was always the goal and this is something we really believe in. We have made a system that gives you everything you need without overcomplicated and underused features. We put our members first and if there’s something you’d love to see added or improved, we want to know about it.
Here at BoxMate staying true to ourselves and the reason we started is at the heart of everything we do. We are always open and honest with you and we promise to stay focused on what really matters - helping to make training fun and facilitating progress.
As the saying goes: ‘Without innovation we cannot advance’. We’re excited by innovation and new ideas and are constantly working on ways to adapt and improve our app. With us, you can expect to be staying ahead of the game.
