What is your background / story?

Growing up, I was a skinny kid. I always wanted to build muscle and improve my physique. To just not be a skinny kid. It eventually took me in the direction of the gym. I remember starting out and feeling lost with what exercises were correct for me and my goals. It can be minefield starting out in the gym, with so much misinformation out there. Eventually, with the guidance of some books and a few guys floating around the gym, I started to learn. I think this is why I value educating our clients so much. I never want my clients to feel lost because I know that feeling. I know the value of a friendly face around the gym to give you some pointers. That is what you will find in Focus health and Fitness.
Training for many years in Mixed Martial Arts, in the world famous Straight Blast Gym, Ireland, I had the fortune to train under my long time coach John Kavanagh. To whom, I am eternally grateful for the many years of world class coaching. Plus he let me and a few other fighters live in his house, in bunkbeds, for years in the famous “Ultimate Fighter House”!!
During that time, I had the opportunity to train with and learn from some of the best athletes on the planet. It gave me a unique insight into what it takes to really challenge the human body and mind. Whether you’re a seasoned gym goer or just starting out, the mentality I want to instil in all of our clients, is one of perseverance and grit. You can achieve anything you put your mind to. That I can promise you. Having the right people around you to guide you, support you and lift you when you need it most is essential to your long term progress. That is what I have aimed to build at Focus health and fitness. A team mentality. One that will educate people to achieve incredible results, for life.

What is your background / story?
Grew up playing sport all my life and that’s where my interest in health and fitness came from. Played every sport imaginable. Finished school then and knew sport and fitness was the area I wanted to go so ended up doing a 4 year undergraduate degree in Waterford institute of technology. During my time there I spent 4 months working with professional football club Reading Fc as a sport scientist and this was my 1st taste of the industry. Came home and finished my degree and then started working as strength and conditioning coach for Wexford youths where I spent 5 years working from u15 age group right up to the men’s and women’s 1st team. In between these 5 years I spent a couple of months in London working as a strength and conditioning coach in a university. After my trips while still working at Wexford I completed my Masters in sports performance. For the last 3 years iv been continuing personal training and strength and conditioning and hope to continue so.

What is your background / story?
I started training in the gym about 2 weeks before my 16th birthday. I loved it from day one and it quickly became not only my biggest hobby but passion. I started taking it a little more seriously as I got older and decided to turn it into my career. I’ve competed in powerlifting competitions and that’s where I’ve put the most time into training wise, however now with the help of Lock I’m hoping to step foot into the bodybuilding world in the next few years.

What is your proudest achievement?
Becoming a PT and continually educating myself to become better.
