I am constantly seeking to further my education, and am looking to study nutrition, S&C, and physiotherapy in the future. Conor is now studying Precision Nutrition certification course. It will will qualify him as a Nutrition Coach.

I always had a love for fitness and sports since I was very young. I’ve been involved in many different sports including athletics, tennis and American football. Soccer has always been my number one sport for as long as I can remember. I have also coached people at various age groups.

I always knew I would end up working in the fitness industry. I am fascinated by how the body works and I want to help people achieve fitness their goals! I worked in DG Fitness Navan, before I left for London, ON, Canada to work at Goodlife Fitness both one year each respectively.

I’ve a huge passion for functional movement and nutrition. And I’m a firm believer that looking after your body is the most important investment you can make towards your long-term health and happiness. I look forward to working with Gravity Fitness clients going forward.

Rachel Mclerney (Junior Coach)

My name is Rachel, I’m a former Dancer and recently Qualified Personal Trainer.
I got my ITEC qualification with Evolution Fitness based on a small seed of belief in
my heart and mind that my life could be different in positive way and I could help
others along the way.

I have undergone a huge transformation myself in every sense, physically, mentally
and spiritually and it is my aim to bring what I’ve learned to my clients, not only so
they achieve results, but so they are in a better place all around from when our energies initially connected.

With plans to delve into psychotherapy to be a more well rounded coach,
I currently have a Certificate from a DBT course I completed, so will guide my
clients in a behavioural change way from what I picked up myself as a mental
health service user. I use Dance and physical training in the gym as a massive tools
for my mental health and a way to shift negative energy.
