I have over 15 years experience in the health and fitness industry and I am very happy to have found Educogym. My passion is helping people to draw out their perfect life from within. At Educogym our highly trained team endeavour to help educate our clients on how to use more of their mind to bring about the physique and life they want. Educogym is all about drawing out the potential of the client to be fitter, healthier and happier so that they get more out of life. We truly believe that each client has the potential to transform themselves from the inside out. The system at Educogym, is a Global Award Winning Model based on a scientific University research study, in which people lost on average 7.5lbs body fat and gained on average 3 lbs of muscle in just 12 days. We’ll help you to understand how muscle burns fat and how to build the amount of muscle which will give you the body you want. In November 2017 I was invited to attend the Educo Seminar in the Bahamas. This was a life changing opportunity and I had a chance to learn about how to use more of my mind which we will help you to do in the gym.

I played football for 12 years getting to play against teams such as Real Madrid, Ajax and Benfica. I also did water sports and swimming for years. Around the age of 16 I found my passion in weight lifting. I qualified as a personal trainer while studying for my degree in Leisure Management where I graduated last November.

Since I have started with Educogym I have learned so much about how I can help change our clients lives. It is amazing seeing the comparison of their faces from when they walked through the door for the first time to the big smiles in their after photos. The most important thing for each client is to have a goal to work towards. Let that drive you to stay consistent with your training and diet. Think about your goal every day and know that you are one day closer to achieving it. 1. Nutrition: Prepare your meals and check the nutritional info on everything you eat. There are hidden sugars everywhere! 2. Exercise: Train smart and focus. 3. Motivation: Always think of the end goal.
I have had a chance to train one of U16 Ireland Tennis Players Sofia Derivan last year as a Sport’s Psychologist & Strength and Conditioning Coach and she won the U18 single William Fry Junior Tennis Championships 2015. The greatest client achievement was one of my clients lost 3-stone, and he achieved it after having suffered a major heart attack in 2013. I have been proud to help him gain confidence in his ability to achieve this goal. I am a qualified physical therapist and I help my clients with injury management, rehabilitation and also injury prevention. Whether they are a high level athlete or an elderly person with acute or chronic pain (for instance back pain), I aim to help them with whatever injury may have arisen. My training approach is fundamental to prevent the reoccurrence of injuries or their associated pain.

Sport to me is not simply a passion – it is a vocation. Over the last ten years of my studies in sports science and physical education, sports psychology, physical therapy, coaching and personal training, one theme runs constant. That is the link between physicality and the strength of the mind. To some, physical well-being and education may be seen as secondary to the other priorities in life – work, family, and academia for example. It is my belief, that physical and mental strength are the perfect complement to enhance all aspects of a person’s lifestyle.

Health and Happiness are the most important to me. I love promoting healthy eating and educating clients on being more aware of what they are feeding their bodies’ on a daily basis. I especially enjoy helping people achieve goals they couldn’t even imagine themselves. The best part of what I love doing is seeing those before and after photos and watching a transformed client walking up that stairs with a smile on their face! It really doesn’t matter what number is on the scales.
In 2010 I decided to go back to college to study. Taking on a path I had no experience in was a worry, however after a strong year doing my physiotherapy assistant course I was chosen as the Health & Fitness Department’s Student of the Year. It still means a lot to me because it was a spring board onto completing my degree with the aim to going for a masters degree. In my fourth and final year in DCU I had a four month placement in Stanford University in Palo Alto, California. I was fortunate enough to work with some of the best college athletes in the country with the highlight being Katie Ledecky, 4 time gold medalist at the Rio Olympic games in 2016. My achievements so far in the industry are small but I am continually pushing to improve and achieve new and wonderful things.

The fitness and health industry in Ireland has boomed within the last ten years with gyms constantly opening, the influx of local gyms and cheap memberships has caused so many to take note of their health and physical appearance. Sadly though; on many occasions bad nutritional advice or fad diets present themselves too frequently. I have been very fortunate to have been trained by the team here in Educogym Docklands in a special and unique way. The approach I have taken into my own diet and training has been life changing and it is something I want to share with other people, whether they’re looking to lose weight, gain muscle, fit into a smaller dress size. No matter what the body type the training and nutrition is proven here in Educogym.
