About Me

“My own journey in the fitness industry began with my degree in Ireland, during which time I worked as a personal trainer and fitness coach for sports teams and various athletes. I then moved to London to specialise in sports specific training and completed my Masters in Strength and Conditioning with Middlesex University. This allowed me to study in depth about physiology and various training techniques and progress my understanding of sports specific health and fitness. My passion for teaching developed during this time and I have spent several years improving my skills as an educator, a trainer and a coach. I take pride in delivering interesting, enjoyable and enthusiastic lectures and believe that learning should always be active and fun.

The fitness industry is an extremely rewarding sector to work in and my advice for those who are looking to enter the industry is to consider your motivation. To be successful as a personal trainer you need a passion for fitness, a drive for success and want to work with people and make a difference. These are the qualities we look for in our applicants and if you fit the bill then you will thrive on one of our courses. In my opinion, there is nothing more rewarding then making a difference to a person’s health, and of course being paid while doing so.”
