Day in the life of Gymshark Owner
With COVID-19 still keeping us in lockdown, businesses such as Gymshark have to adapt to all the changes that will be coming in the near future. Just because lockdown might be ending on the 11th of May, doesn’t mean that everything will go back to normal. Social distancing is still going to be in place for months and months ahead of us, so normal working offices are going to have to change dramatically.
With Gymshark aiming to make around £400m in revenue this year, COVID-19 has affected this goal dramatically, but this hasn’t stopped Ben Francis, the Founder, and owner of Gymshark. While no one can go to the Gymshark HQ anymore to work, Ben works from home and takes you on a day in the life and how he works and manages a huge company from home and how a lot of his staff also do the same.
What is Gymshark?
Gymshark is a fitness apparel & accessories brand for men and women and its success has been highly influenced by their push of social media. This can be anything from social media advertising, or having some of the biggest names in the industry promoting Gymsharks products daily. Gymshark has a group of athletes that they sponsor, these athletes can be found here: https://www.gymshark.com/blogs/athletes.
Who is Ben Francis?
Ben founded Gymshark at the age of 19 out of his bedroom in his parents’ house. Bens’ passion for sports and fitness may be the key to his success and is the reason he is worth over £9m.
