Perth gym puts muscle behind fundraising effort

One Performance Centre wanted to join the movement of changing the world through fitness.

And already the popular Perth gym is having an impact after gathering more than £1500 for cancer charities at a well-attended fundraiser.

The Battle Cancer event welcomed more than 20 teams for a day of fun, fitness activity earlier this month.

Owners Adam Cameron and Stephen Brown were taken aback by the wonderful response and unforgettable experience.

“We came across a company called Battle Cancer and their big slogan is ‘changing the world through fitness’,” Adam told the PA.

“We wanted to work with them and they were very happy for us to hold an event in their name.

“I had done similar events at other gyms but I wanted to make this one even bigger and better.

“We wanted it to be accessible for all fitness levels, for families and friends. It wasn’t competitive but something to push yourself.

“There were six workouts in the morning and six in the evening in teams of two.

“We had over 80 people involved and had a target of raising £500. We ended up making £1600 which was really great.”

First place on the day went to the team of David Martin and John McLagan while Derek Gray and Duncan Hewitt were second.

Laurie Greenhill and Allan Ferrier placed third, alongside Lauren McDonald and Victoria Welsh.

“We’re still quite new so we didn’t know how many people we would get,” Adam added.

“One of the best things was seeing our members all speaking to each other. We have since had many of them meeting and training together.”

One Performance Centre, based on Arran Road, opened their doors during lockdown and have worked hard to steadily grow the business.

“Members-wise, we hit our two-year target in three months,” smiled Adam. “People weren’t sure whether it was the right time to open a gym.

“But we thought it was the perfect time and we have been proven right so far.

“We had always rented other people’s gyms. This has always been a big ambition for myself and Stephen.”
