My journey started in mid 2016 at 142kg+ in weight. They talk about the straw that broke the camels back, well I couldn’t tie my laces or go up a stairs without being out of breath and this was the straw for me. I needed change, to live longer, become healthier and become a better father and person. I started on my own nutrition journey and over the next couple of years I managed to lose close to 100lbs in weight and transform my eating habits.
I decided during this transformation that I was done with a career in banking and I wanted to pursue a career in helping others. The best way to do that was in a similar way I had, due to the relatability I have with those starting their own journeys so a career in nutrition and fitness it was. I attained my Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer Qualification from Elite Fitness and Performance in Blackrock and Master Nutrition Coaching qualification from Precision Nutrition (L1 & L2)
My Coaching Career Started In FFS Gym In Leeson Street In Dublin As A Personal Trainer, Head Of Corporate Wellness And Head Of Training Academy From December 2017 – January 2019 Where I Took A Step To Move Home To Kilkenny And Start To Build My Own Business.
I Have A Keen Personal Interest In Multiple Sporting Disciplines And I Have Practical Experience In Running, Indoor Rowing, Boxing, Strongman, Rugby, OCR And Adventure Racing I Have A Keen Focus On Ultra Endurance Events Presently Having Completed Up To A 100km Ultramarathon, 24 Hours Charity Event For Relay For Life And Multiple Other Ultramarathons In 2019, Amongst Other Endurance Events.
About Nu Gamma Fitness
It All Started In A Parish Hall In Clara Co. Kilkenny In May 2019, Where I Delivered Classes Once Per Week In The Hall. There Was A Keen Interest And Good Feedback So I Decided To Take An Opportunity To Run A Studio Of Classes From A Studio In Hebron Industrial Estate From July 2019 Until The End Of October 2019 Where A Facility Came Up That Would Give Me The Autonomy I Needed To Provide A Full Timetable Of Classes And Personal Training To All Of Those Interested. On The 4th Of November I Opened My New 100sqm+ Studio In St James Park, Kilkenny Where I Provide A Range Of Strength And Conditioning Classes From 6:30am Until Late Evening Monday To Friday.
