Business Profile: Raw Performance

Can you describe your business?

Raw Performance is a gym with a holistic approach to strength and wellness. We run daily classes and private sessions for individual needs, from fat loss to athletic preparation. We have been tarred with an image of only working with athletes but we equally enjoy taking beginners on a new journey.

Why did you start your own business? 

To be honest it was a bit of mad jump there wasn’t much research done, I just knew I had something to offer and wanted to share it with as many people as possible. I’m glad I did, best thing I ever done!

What are the best things about running your own business?

Best things for me is your constantly learning, you get to choose your own timetable and it’s great to see others enjoying your services, especially in the fitness industry the changes people can make inside a few months or even weeks to better themselves is extremely satisfying, and nobody telling you what to do obviously is a bonus.

What are the main challenges facing the business?

Would have to be the paperwork, keeping accounts etc. and keeping up with the other gyms in the town there are a lot of good gyms in Omagh. Would have to say people in Omagh are spoilt for choice.

What advice would you give to someone starting a business?

If you don’t have any doubt it will work, then you’ll find a way to make it work. If you do have doubt do some research and make sure you understand what your getting into.

Can you describe your experience of running a business in three words or less?

Rewarding, challenging, educating.
