My name is Daniel Percival, owner of the 3Tribes boutique fitness brand. I would like to call a meeting for all independent business owners in the N8 area.

The purpose of that meeting is the following:

  • To create an information feedback loop as a business community so we can move quickly and decisively.
  • Better understand how we can help our community.
  • Understand what…

Unprecedented times means difficult decisions have to be made. But as the studio doors close, our online community begins to thrive.

Over recent weeks we have been following all updated advice on Covid-19 and making changes to our studios in line with government guidelines.

Our position was always to continue to support our community through these unprecedented times. We agreed to remain open whilst we felt it was safe and a benefit to our members.

With the government’s announcement last night, we decided that it was now time to close the doors. All studios will be closed as of Thursday 19th March 2020.

For your existing reservations, we will return these classes. Additionally all class packages and memberships will be adjusted to reflect the duration of these closures.


A letter to the 3Tribes community from Founder, Dan Percival. How testing times means community (albeit at distance) is more important than ever.

In late 2017, I was working a full-time job as an assistant in a small talent agency. The opportunities were huge and the career path was exactly what I wanted, but after two years, my employers were still unable to pay me a living wage. My savings were spent, and I realised that I was going to have to come up with a second revenue stream to continue paying my rent.

I was already in the…

I was wandering out of my local newsagent last night and something caught my eye. A Mars bar. Placed where it always is, amidst a sea of other sweets, chewing gum and chocolate bars. There was nothing out of the ordinary about this particular Mars Bar, except for one thing; the word “PROTEIN” was emblazoned across it.

A miracle. Suddenly the most famous chocolate bar in the world had become a health supplement. It was a truly amazing turn of events.

The word protein is suddenly everywhere and on everything. Protein is…


Floatation tanks are renowned for providing deep relaxation and space for meditation. During my third trimester I was floating every week — below are a few of my personal observations.

‘Find Stillness’ a film created by 3Tribes to help others understand the benefits of sensory deprivation.

During my pregnancy research, I learnt about the importance of breathing, visualisation and relaxation techniques to achieve a (fingers crossed!) stress free birth. I had tried floatation for relaxation when I was 18 and had loved the experience — remembering the weightlessness of my body I thought this would feel amazing and being able to lie on my back would be a luxury! …


10 years since I jumped into my entrepreneurial journey, the life of a businessman has profoundly changed me. What follows are a few of the deeper lessons learnt in those early days.

10 years ago, I was a broken man. Returning to London with shattered dreams and empty pockets from a gruelling season of auditions in the City of Angels, LA, I had come to a damning conclusion regarding my lifelong dream to be a professional actor.

I was never going to be Robert De Niro.

Whether the reason for my lack of success was a lack of talent or a lack of luck, I no longer cared. …
