Hi there my name is John I have a passion for sport, health & fitness.
This began at a young age when I followed my two uncles over to the boxing club. The sport taught me many lessons such as discipline and how to train at a high intensity.
I went on to represent the Star ABC as an amateur boxer winning an Irish title I also have some international experience boxing in America
I suffered torn ligaments in both my knees in separate occasions which put me out of competition. This is when I found my hunger for knowledge and started to learn about strength training.
I then went and achieved both level 2 fitness coach and level 3 personal training qualifications. This was to not only help myself but help others get stronger and fitter while preventing injury and improving their health.
I have recently completed phase one of the EPI strength and conditioning course for athletes and intend on completing the course this year.
Before starting my career at Gym.Co I worked in the Virgin Active Gym in Hollywood for 4 years where I picked a lot of experience & knowledge working as a personal trainer & fitness coach.
I am now excited to be part of the personal training team at Gym Co Cityside. I will also be working along side Daniel Anderson as an intern strength & conditioning coach and part of team PPT Belfast.
If your interested in getting stronger, losing body fat or an athlete looking to improve their strength & conditioning please do not hesitate to come over to me for a chat about my services. I will also be available group boxing classes and one to one lessons for anyone wanting to blow of some steam and learn more about the sport.
