It’s been almost a year and a half since the pandemic hit and thankfully we are back to some version of ‘normal’. The country took a big hit by not having access to gyms and fitness centres, but we know better than anyone that you can get a world class workout from anywhere if you have the right kit. During that time, we wanted to bring our passion for lifting people up and our profession of changing lives through exercise together. So, we did.
Our founder, Jon, had an idea to help his Dad keep fit by giving him some classic Perium kit. This was the seed that blossomed into a beautiful idea to help the community find good physical and mental health in dark times.
We began to put out feelers on our socials. We got tonnes of requests from folks who needed a boost. So, off we set around the country, delivering our kit for free by hand. On a two week tour, Jon donated heaps of equipment to vulnerable people as well as those working in the public services such as firemen and paramedics.
Our primary goal has ALWAYS been to help people lead healthier and happier lifestyles, and though donating some of our classic kit, we made a difference. This wasn’t for some flashy Instagram campaign or a reality TV publicity stunt – this was real graft with real impact for people who really needed it.
Perium is about courage, power and prime. We embody all three of those words when we come together, share resources and empower each other. It’s about taking action for the community – that’s exactly what we’re about and as a Perium follower, we know you are too.
