Luca Adanti (Lead Strength Coach)

My name is Luca, I have been working in Gravity Fitness for over a year now. I am a certified personal trainer (NSCA-CPT) and lead coach at Gravity Fitness. I am also currently studying CSCS (NSCA).  In the near future I want to obtain a degree in sport science. I also have a bachelor’s in aerospace engineering.

I wanted to change my career and I decided to enter the field of health and fitness since I have always been passionate about sports. I have played basketball since I was a kid but I am fascinated by every kind of sport. This interest in the performance and health aspects of physical activity is what drives me to pursue a career in this field.

I am looking forward to working with you and helping you obtain the same benefits I did with physical activity and more.

Paolo Cassani (Coach)

Paolo Cassani is an ISSA qualified personal trainer and level 1 powerlifting coach. He has been working in the fitness industry for the past 3 years previously in Virgin Active (Italy).
For him being a trainer it’s not just a job, it’s my passion and it’s a commitment!
Coming from a past of obesity, he fell in love with the gym as soon as he started, focusing on bodybuilding and powerlifting (disciplines that I still practice today) and then opening up to different sports and training modalities, collecting valuable experiences and gaining a wider knowledge of fitness in its various fascinating forms.
He could then see that this was what he wanted to do in his life, so he decided time become a personal trainer to help others to enjoy health and fitness the same way he does and to let them live it with a deeper positive life which brings so many benefits not only to our body but also to our mind and in everyday life.
I’m also a vegan athlete, living proof that it’s possible to be fit and strong on a plant based diet.

John Kennedy (Coach)

My name is John and I studied to become a personal trainer and coach at Image Fitness Training NFQ level 4 personal training, level 3 fitness instruction and group instruction.
I decided to become a personal trainer/coach because I have been hugely passionate from a young age with health and fitness. I also compete in combat sports at a high level, K1 kickboxing with an ambition to go further into the professional ranks.
I choose Gravity Fitness because from the very day I walked in to interview Gareth and Emma and all the coaches made me feel really welcome and I could see it would also be a great place to be educated by some of the best coaches around. Before starting at Gravity Fitness I spent 6 months working in Flyefit Swords.
I also hope to further my study’s and do a strength and conditioning and degree.
In my free time I like the spend my time with friends and family and also do my own training.
