As an industry we promote health, wellbeing and activity – but how well is our sector? Are we practising what we preach? and are we providing healthy and fit environments, conditions and opportunities for our workforces and managers? And if we don’t do this what does the future hold for those working within health and fitness?
Having spent 25 years in the fitness industry, ending in the role of Vice–President of EMEA , for a leading global manufacturer and supplier, Peter decided to make a career change after experiencing the ill effects of ‘Corporate burnout’ in late 2019.
He decided to focus on understanding the development of resilience, effective leadership strategies and positive work cultures, to make sense of why it firstly happened to himself, but how to prevent this occurring to others and within organisations.
The strong link between his passion and knowledge gained from business and personal experience continues to drive the focus on results and change.

At Origin Fitness, we are proud to have a diverse customer base which reaches into all corners of the health and fitness industry and spans across the UK, Europe, Middle East and as far as New Zealand. We aim to create and build lasting relationships by offering the best customer service and the best product ranges, all supported by the passion, dedication, and knowledge of our team.

As someone who is fairly new to the sports events industry, I have already
witnessed through justrunning just how important the role physical activity
plays in a workplace. Health and Wellbeing is at the centre of our company
focus and we work as a solid unit in our mission to get the nation more
I come from a sporting background myself and my hope is to persuade more companies to get their employees moving. I believe that our running events provide a great solution for organisations wanting to improve not only physical health of employees, but mental health too. Since joining the team I have already signed up to running events I would never have considered otherwise.
