A good personal trainer knows about training and how it can improve your quality of life but a great personal trainer is able to use that knowledge in a practical way to help people achieve their specific goals. Everyone has different reasons for hiring a trainer and understanding these unique needs and working alongside your clients to achieve their goals is what really matters. Training works best when it’s personal and personalised and that’s why I set up this studio.
I originally began studying to be a Physiotherapist in UCD. I loved the anatomy and physiology, strength and conditioning and athletic therapy modules, but I had a pretty good idea from early on that I didn’t want to work in a clinic or hospital. At the time I was obsessed with training, so at the start of second year I qualified as a personal trainer and began freelancing to help pay my way through college. By the time I qualified as a Chartered Physiotherapist, the side thing that was supposed to provide me with some pocket money had become my passion and career. Though I do not practice hands-on anymore, physiotherapy remains key to my work; it taught me the value of understanding fitness, health and well being from multiple perspectives and that has driven my practice and methodology. I believe in the importance of continuous education and stay committed to seeking out evidence-based, progressive and results-orientated training methodologies and continuously feed this back into my practice.
