Raw Portobello is great but could do with a couple more squat racks. Evenings can involve queues for racks which is annoying. A few new bars and plates wouldn't go amiss either. Generally great atmosphere here with community feel to it. More...

I started training in Raw over a year ago and it’s honestly the best gym I’ve ever trained in. The facility is awesome and the staff are very knowledgeable and helpful. Both locations are incredible but I love the old school warehouse vibes of portobello. More...

Popped in on Wednesday for a drop in, only gym open with the snow. The staff were all sound and friendly, many taking time out of their workout to come talk to/help me. Better equipment than most gyms in Dublin and a nice 'old school' rocky feel I felt! (without it being intimidating) More...

I’ve never been a member of a gym for as long as I have at RAW Portobello. It’s not the nearest or easiest place for me to get to but it’s certainly the friendliest & most personable gym I’ve ever been too. Great staff with a shout out to Gera, Troy & Ray well deserved! � More...

Good facilities, made great by the coaches. The guys are always on hand to give advice and help clients reach their goals. After a long time of plateau, I'm finally seeing some progress on Andy's programming & a few key pointers from Troy has got me on the right track with my C&J. More...

Raw is probably the best gym in Dublin. Well equipped, a great atmosphere and at €289 a year for students, it's pretty easy on the pocket too!

Brilliant gym with great facilities. Staff are friendly and they gave me a great program and diet plan. They don't just leave you to your own devices but follow up on a regular basis with your progress and give great advice. I would highly recommend it.

Best gym and atmosphere in Dublin for any serious athlete. I am a natural bodybuilder of 7 years. I came to Dublin for 10 days on vacation and needed a gym to train at. After looking at the many various gyms in Dublin I settled on RAW Condition. The staff was insanely welcoming, encouraging and helpful. They also gave me a special deal for the 10 days I was there and didnt make me pay for an entire month like every other gym in the area wanted. More...

We build a foundation of basics and put a plan in place to build upon that foundation based on the goals of each individual client that we have the pleasure of working with.

Remaining consistent in everything you do and not beating yourself up over small mistakes (like having an extra slice of pizza or 5).

Long term consistency is the key to long term success.

This is my passion. I love coaching people and helping people improve, and I'm very lucky to get to do this for a living - Karl.

My goal is to impact as many lives as possible and I felt the best way to do that was to create something and build from the ground up.

We pay close attention to detail and value our clients physical and mental health and well-being.


1-1 or small group training delivered in person.

Perfect for those who are highly motivated and have some level of training experience.
