Hi my name is Rob and I am qualified EQF level 4 Personal Trainer. I am currently studying a Bachelors of science degree in strength and conditioning down in Setanta college and Precision Nutrition certification. I am constantly looking to learn and further my education and am planing on doing multiple courses down the line.
I have had a huge passion with fitness since I was young playing many sports such as rugby and golf. I got into weight training firstly to loose weight as I was overweight as a child and secondly to improve my performance on the pitch. I love helping people and although I’m only young I believe I can have a big impact on changing peoples physical and mental well-being.
With plans after my college degree, I would love to pursue a degree in nutrition and physical therapy as I am fascinated on how the body works. I believe that weight training can improve everyone’s day to day life even if their goal isn’t fat loss or muscle gain. I look forward to working with all of you.
My name is Luca and I am a NSCA Certified Personal Trainer. I have a bachelor’s in aerospace engineering but 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 toward the performance and health aspects of physical activity is what drives me to pursue a career in this field.
I always want to learn new things and I’m planning to pursue additional certifications, such as the NSCA CSCS, and also obtain a degree in sport science.
I am looking forward to working with you and helping you obtain the same benefits I did with physical activity and more.
I have been attending the gym for 5 years. At first, I went to the gym as a hobby but now I go for many more reasons. There is a great sense of community in the gym and I believe that physical exercise goes further than just weight loss.
I am currently studying Sports Therapy at Portobello Institute . My plans for the future is to continue my studies and qualify as a Physiotherapist.
