We had the good fortune of connecting with Harry Glor and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Harry, how does your business help the community?
Modern humans are living a life that is far different from the life we evolved to live. Our days are spent sitting and thinking, instead of moving and feeling. This affects not only our physical wellness, but also our mood and relationships. We evolved to move and challenge our bodies, but we rarely do, and it’s affecting us.
In comes Primal, a place where athletes of all abilities and ages can return to their evolutionary roots through movement and hard work. Primal is a place for people to get out of their heads and into their bodies.
Our main aim at Primal is to help create stronger, more resilient humans, mentally and physically. We believe that healthy and happy humans carry a contagious positivity with them wherever they go, and we want to help spread that.
Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
Primal Performance opened in October 2021, but it has been built over the last 3 years.
I was able to work at a few different gyms before opening my own, so I was able to see what worked and what didn’t. I picked and chose the parts I liked from my prior experiences, and came out with Primal.
Primal offers group fitness for Middle School, and Small Group Personalized training for High School, College, and Adult athletes. This model allows us to give personalized training at a lower price point and with a better training environment for our athletes – a win/win in every way. Our programming is written to help our clients reach their specific goals, instead of throwing them into a cookie-cutter system and hoping they make it through. We take our coaching seriously, and we maintain a 6:1 athlete-to-coach ratio at all times.
More than anything, we aim to be an oasis of positivity in a world that can sometimes lean a bit negative.
Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
1. Breakfast at Rise and Shine in Washington Park. Best biscuits and breakfast sandwiches around!
2. Skiing/snowboarding at any of the amazing mountains Colorado has to offer.
4. A beer and a game of pool at Lakeview Lounge.
5. Golf at Murphy Creek or Green Valley Ranch, my two favorite public courses.
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I’d like to shoutout my parents and brothers, who taught me the importance of ownership and hard work, but who also showed me love and support every step of the way.
I’d also like to shoutout a book and author that changed the way I see the world, “The Story of the Human Body,” by Daniel E. Lieberman.
Finally, I’d like to shoutout our athletes at Primal. It is amazing to see such a motivated group of people show up and consistently work toward their goals. We’d be nothing without them.
