Deise
My name is Mairead and I’m from County Meath! I have been working in the industry for five years and have loved every minute! Health and Fitness is a passion of mine which I strive to pass on to the people I train.
I am a qualified Fitness Instructor, Personal Trainer and also have a qualification in Dietary Counselling. I believe that through hard work and perseverance everyone can reach their goals and most importantly I believe it should be an enjoyable and fun journey with plenty of laughs along the way!!
My main passion in the industry I would have to say is strength training. There are huge physical and mental health benefits that can be achieved through strength training. Through regular strength training and a clean balanced diet you can successfully reduce body fat, increase lean muscle mass and burn calories more efficiently. It is my belief that strength training is a key component of overall health and fitness for everyone no matter what age or gender.
Whether you are a complete beginner, having hit a training plateau, or you just need that extra motivation to achieve your goals then look no further.

I could have come this far without Dan. I am two stone lighter, 15% less bodyfat and the fittest I have ever been in life. I feel incredible.
My initial sessions with Dan were spent undoing the bad training habits I’d picked up over the years training on my own. You really feel the difference.
Celina, 33—Hair dresser

In the past I even went to the gym 5 days a week and barely seen the scales move or even any changes. I can really testify that personal training with Dan was worth it.. I was doing everything wrong. Now, I am in the best shape of my life and I only train 3 days a week. Gareth, 31—Dentist
