We love to shout about the businesses and people who are making Manchester the vibrant, innovative and exciting city that forms the backbone of our community. This is why we’ve been hard at work finding out more about these individuals as part of our ‘Get to Know’ blog series, which spotlights amazing folk who embody all the values of the work we do. But if you’re wondering what that is exactly, MYP aims to give dynamic young people the tools they need to network and grow in their chosen industry – while also accessing a fun and close-knit community that fully supports its members.

We’re passionate about creating networking events in Manchester that give young professionals the chance to meet like-minded people, with the opportunity to grow and develop in the city we’re lucky enough to call home.

But enough about us! Let’s talk about M3 Perform, an outstanding locally-owned business that goes above and beyond to offer group training that makes a real difference. If you cast your minds back to our Health and Wellbeing event last year, they were one of our key collaborators, hosting a range of classes that proved a real hit with our members. But what makes M3 Perform stand out from the crowd – and how can you get involved?


M3 Perform is an award-winning group training gym not only dedicated to helping their clients reach their health and fitness goals, but also supporting fellow small businesses in the area. The gym has gone from strength to strength (literally) and now boasts a six-strong team of passionate industry professionals, with knowledge bases covering everything from nutrition to Olympic-level coaching. Their core values of commitment, consistency and community echo in everything they do: from super-inclusive training programs, personal coaching and even social events.

Every single member of the team lives and breathes fitness.

  • Co-director Lloyd has been dedicated to the fitness industry since departing from college. To date, he has led a whopping 15,000 coaching sessions!
  • Ben, the second co-director is as equally committed as his business partner. With 10 years of experience under his belt in personal training, Ben makes a fantastic addition to the team. He has worked in professional football and with Olympic athletes – we’re impressed!
  • Hashim has over 8 years in the industry working in boxing and basketball, having also worked alongside nutritionists. When he isn’t helping clients with their gains, you’ll find him in the ring as an amateur boxer.
  • Next up is Megan, whose coaching on the Condition Program and personal training is only matched by her fancy footwork as a professional dancer.
  • Our head coach of 3 years, Mike, boasts 6 solid years of industry experience. He spends his days inspiring members in and outside of the gym to improve their lifestyles.
  • Scott is another valued member of the coaching team. Scott developed an innovative online programme that virtually unites members across the country. His passion for fitness coupled with his love for all things sport makes Scott an asset to the M3 Perform team!


The team at M3 Perform are experts in getting the right balance between strength and high intensity training, while focusing on injury prevention and smoothing out regular aches and pains. Their ‘3 C Values’ extend to their Perform and Condition programming too, with an inclusive approach to HIIT Training and strength development. No matter where you are on your health and wellness journey, M3 can tailor your individual training plan to help you reach – and smash – your goals.

So whether you’re looking to focus on fat loss, lose weight or improve your strength, the talented team at M3 Perform know how to create a winning fitness formula.


M3 Perform is right on Manchester city centre’s doorstep. Situated just across the road from New Bailey and a stone’s throw from Spinningfields, the gym is the pulsepoint of its community. 

One of the perks of your membership is the M3 card, which offers you exclusive discounts on local businesses such as hairdressers, physiotherapy treatments, coffee shops, food spots and many more. They really do care about lifting up their fellow independents, making M3 a real local staple – and the perfect place to pick up a post-workout indulgence.



Since starting in May 2017, the team at M3 Perform have been combining their passion for fitness with serious industry skills, which has allowed them to transform the lives of hundreds. Co-directors Lloyd and Ben have had extensive experience across the sector, having personally delivered over 15,000 coaching sessions and worked with top-level athletes. This has led them to create a group gym experience that not only focuses on strength and conditioning training, but also specialist services that help clients maintain all-round health and wellness. M3 offers an impressive range of nutrition support, injury rehabilitation, boxing conditioning, postural development, weight loss planning, functional training and more – so you are in the truly expert hands.

The M3 team use their font of combined knowledge to work with some of Manchester’s busiest young professionals, ensuring individual progress with sessions that are always fresh, fun and free from repetition. The creation of their specialised small group training program has helped many members successfully balance their work and social life.

There’s always something to do thanks to their regular social events, which allows people to network, build friendships and find a place in the M3 community away from the weightrack. With parties, team walks and outdoor activities, M3 Perform is the perfect place to work on your physical fitness and mental strength – something that is super important in our hectic, daily lives.

And that concludes our whistle stop tour of the amazing M3 Perform team and their values. Make sure to give them a visit and get the most out of their fantastic offering!
