 about rage

Rage Fitness Company was formed in 2018 with a simple mission, to Improve Lives. Rage Fitness started by delivering 1 30 minute fitness class a week. Which was to improve the physical, mental and emotional well-being of a handful of Blacon residents. For the first couple of months Rage Fitness only had 4 participants. We had no equipment but WE believed we could be a force for good.

Craig Brown – CEO

My name is Craig Brown and I am the proud founder and owner of Rage Fitness Company.
I have always had a urge to help people. Either that be in my attempt to be a long standing Royal Marine Commando in the Royal Navy or moving into the fitness industry in 2011. I believe I’m here to improve lives in anyway I can. I started Rage Fitness Company with a skipping rope and a pair of dumbbells. Now we are helping over thirty thousand people a year to improve their physical, mental emotional wellbeing. Ranging in a variety of services, across the North West. I also believe we can always do more, be more and help more. With that being said my and Rage Fitness Company ambition is to have 5 facilities, helping over one hundred thousand people a year within the UK by 2025.
I’m excited to see what we can achieve together. Either by you coming to our fitness classes online or face to face, coming to one of our 20 services across the North West or becoming one of trusted and vital partners.
