“I love the great outdoors and like to combine my two passions of travelling and fitness. I set myself goals every year to try and achieve. Over the last few years i’ve climbed the Inca Trail, summited Kilimanjaro and last year made it up to Everest Base Camp.
I like working with people of all ages and get a great sense of satisfaction helping people achieve their goals. I find working with children especially rewarding because you can have such a positive influence in helping them develop at a young age, and to play a part in that learning process helps you to celebrate the little things every day and that’s what’s important.
I’ve been working in Oakgrove the last seven years and I love the craic and camaraderie between the members and staff. Smile and enjoy life….Pressure is for tyres.”

Exercise and nutrition has been my passion from a very young age. I have been involved in coaching individuals and teams for the past 8 years. This passion drove me on to study Sports and Exercise Sciences in the University of Limerick, which I achieved a first class honours degree. My experience thus far has been fruitful; working with a wide range of individuals with various backgrounds, capabilities and goals. Areas of expertise include, nutrition, athletic performance, rehabilitation, fatloss, and body- recomposition. I believe everyone has the basic human right to live a long healthy life; and this can be achieved through regular exercise and nutrition.

I have been working in Oakgrove for the past 2 years. When I began I was welcomed with open arms and made felt at home straight away. Since then I have learned that this is how every individual that walks through the Oakgrove gates is treated, the place is full of amazing staff that are dedicated to give you the best opportunity to become fitter and healthier while having serious craic in the process.
