You can now get paid to work out from home

This could be your dream job, if you're a fitness fanatic

A fitness equipment brand are looking to pay one lucky person to test their product range at home.


Gyms across the UK have generally reopened after the latest round of coronavirus restrictions were lifted.

However, the appetite for home workouts has never been greater. Many people have realised they don't necessarily need to fork out for a gym membership to work their way back to full fitness.

What's more, you could even get paid to train from home - thanks to fitness equipment specialists BLK BOX.


BLK BOX are offering fitness fanatics up to £300 to test out a range of new and existing fitness products.

The company has kickstarted its 'Anyone Can' campaign, aimed at encouraging everyone to become more active, regardless of current fitness levels or athletic background.

BLK BOX are particularly interested in an individual who has used exercise to overcome a challenging time in their life.

As part of the application process, individuals will be asked to submit 500 words describing an experience in their life which exercise helped them to overcome - in addition to why they should be picked to become the 'Product Tester'.


Applicants have until midnight on 30th June to submit their entries through the BLK BOX website.

BLK BOX will only be looking for one 'Product Tester' to join its team, with the individual receiving a fitness bundle worth over £350 to review, alongside the £300 payment.

The bundle will include a 3 in 1 Soft Pylo Jump Box, Cast Iron Kettlebell and two Hex Dumbbells at a weight suitable for the winner, with all products needing to be reviewed for three to four weeks.

The successful applicant will be expected to start straight away and will be contacted shortly after the competition ends.


Catherine McLaughlin, Marketing Manager at BLK BOX said: "We're really excited to hear from people across the country about all the ways that exercise has changed their lives.

"Whether a fitness routine has improved someone's mental health or helped them recover from physical illness, we can't wait to be inspired by their stories.

"We also want to help inspire other people across the nation who also may be struggling with the impact of lockdown by sharing the winner's own success story."

You don't need to be the next Arnold Schwarzenegger to stand a chance of securing this dream job. You don't even need to be operating at an advanced level of fitness.

McLaughlin said: "We're not just looking for athletes. The competition is open to people of all levels who use exercise to improve their day-to-day lives.


"Product testers should represent the kinds of people who buy our equipment, so there isn't one 'right' candidate."

The company has stressed that the successful applicant must be comfortable having their story captured on camera and potentially shared with media.
