Hi, My name is Bryan Kavanagh.

I own and operate the ABS Gyms, personal training studios and bootcamps in Dublin. My journey in fitness started when I was 6 years old. I started Tae-Kwon-Do and became obsessed with being able to kick like and ultimately look like the martial artists and actors as I grew up. This led to me becoming obsessed with nutrition and training outside of Tae-Kwon-Do too. I know what you’re thinking, “what kind of weird teenager starts reading literature on nutrition, anatomy and physiology at thirteen years of age?”

Eh, me.

I’ve been studying informally for the last 20 years I have been studying formally for the last 13 years to bring you the most effective training and nutrition programs that you can possibly hope for.

There are no gimmicks in this field. There are tried, tested and proven methods that work and then there is nonsense that doesn’t work.

Anyway, I’ll stop there. I’m delighted you landed on our website and I hope you take the time to have a look around, read some of the material and ultimately sign up for a free consultation with either myself, or one of the highly qualified personal trainers that work in the ABS Gyms.

No Nonsense approach

In The ABS Gym, we spend more time looking a scientific journals, research and real-world information, not silly fitness or gossip magazines that can only steer you in the wrong direction.

Experienced Coaches

We have some of the best and most experienced coaches in the country that boast an array of qualifications and accolades. They range from scientists and world champions to world level strength coaches, powerlifters and martial artists.

Off peak sessions

Enquire about our off peak training sessions if you want to train with a personal trainer but you cant justify the cost. Lunchtime or off peak sessions might suit you best.

Real world nutrition

Our nutrition plans can be as complex or as bland as needs be. Some people do not have time to prep meals and run around shopping for four hours per week. We will teach you how to overcome time restrictions.

Practical Exercises

You will not be asked to do any outlandish exercises and you will definitely not be asked to do anything that you are unable to do or that is outside your level of ability.

Our full support

When you start training with the ABS gym you are not only starting training. You are entering into a support system that ranges from personal training, programming (for when you arent with us), nutrition, lifestyle management and, most of all, accountability.

Bodyfat Blitz

I feel somewhat irresponsible for giving people this option sometimes because we tell people that fat loss is a gradual process that requires patience. But…sometimes you have to change the rules. This fat loss program is a SHORT term fix for people with a wedding, holiday or big date coming up SOON. Click here to read more.
