Blog » Gym News » From professional football to personal trainer.

At the age of 16, I moved to England, to start my career in professional football with Derby County, where I spent 3 years. During my time before, during & after living in England, I was representing the Republic of Ireland International under age teams, from u16 - u19, making 30 appearances, including travelling around the world to play games, including playing in the u17 European Championships which were hosted in Kazakhstan. While in Derby, I gained my L3 certificate in gym instruction & personal training, along with a diploma in sport in performance. Following my 3 years in England, I returned home to play football for Bohemian FC of the Premier Division of Ireland, where I spent three years, I then moved on to play for my hometown club of Bray Wanderers FC, where I spent 1 year. Following my time at Bray Wanderers, I decided to take a step away from professional football, and decided to start in personal training.


From all my experience, I have worked with, and learned from top coaches across the fitness industry in both England & Ireland, and since I have been involved in Educogym, I can honestly say that the Educogym Model is the best regime I have encountered, the benefits for the mind and the body are amazing, and the results speak for themselves. I have learned the values of the importance of health and fitness within professional sport and every day life. The benefits of a healthy lifestyle, especially weight lifting for people of all ages is remarkable, it increases the standard of life and makes every day tasks seem easy.
