I did my first personal training course back in 2002, I sat my exams then I was 17 and technically I was certified from the day I turned 18, after I did my CPR qualification of course.

Ronan Tutty

Unlike most of our trainers, Ronan didn’t come into the industry after a life-long involvement in sports/fitness. 


Jen Harrington

Unlike a lot of coaches, I wasn’t always sporty or interested in health and fitness. I was that girl in school that stood still in PE class while everyone played basketball around me.
