Before Boostbox, Curt worked as a lawyer in law firms, tech companies & investment banks.
Curt finally found his calling with Boostbox, turning a lifelong passion for all things fitness into something to help inspire change in others.
Previously, Sam worked as an accountant & digital strategy consultant, giving him a knack for helping companies grow into the modern, millenial world.
A self-confessed coffee addict & lover of travel, his last adventure was through British Columbia, Canada.

Boostbox is formed
We registered the company & set about creating our vision.
That lightbulb moment
We had that "Eureka!" moment (on the sofa, of course). We saw the likes of make-up/wine/cheese advent calendars & asked ourselves, "Why isn't there a healthier option?"
With less than 8 weeks until the 1st of December, we got to work the very next day (after we'd done our day's work at our office jobs!).
We go viral!
Our marketing videos go viral on UNILAD & other Facebook pages, amassing over 5 million views & 30k comments on videos!
Packing the calendars
We pack 1,500+ advent calendars in our living room, just in time to get them to customers for 1st December. We'll be forever grateful to our friends who chipped in to help.
Yes, that's approx. 45,000 protein bars in our front room...
First business trip
We took a trip to Dublin, Ireland to head to a Keynote fitness conference. Hoping this was the first of many more (conferences that is, not pints of Guinness...).
First retail stockist
We reach a deal with Sainsbury's Argos to stock our 2018 Protein Advent Calendar.
We go mainstream
Boostbox is featured across 20+ national press organisations, not to mention hitting the front page of the BBC News website/app. Wow...
We collaborate with one of the fastest growing companies in the UK, Gymshark (a fitness apparel brand).
Curt & Sam pull a 40-hour shift to hand-pack limited edition Boostbox Protein Advent Calendars for each of the Gymshark sponsored athletes. Then sleep. Lots of sleep.
Boostbox Office launches
