Michael Band

Personal Training Lead

How can I help you improve your health?

I am a specialist in the management of lower back pain having completed my level 4 qualification; this allows me to work closely with people rehabilitating from injury. My other areas of expertise are strength and conditioning training through functional exercise. Nutrition is also so important and this plays a big part in how we train and feel during the day so I like to spend time with you helping to refine your nutrition to help us with your training.

I help to inspire my clients to achieve their goals and aspirations. For all my clients I design a realistic structured approach tailored to you in order for you to fulfill your potential.

"I have been having personal training sessions with Michael now for 5 months and I am delighted with the results!

For years I have had issues with regards to my body image and weight but thanks to Michael I have been able to achieve goals that I never imagined possible! Following the exercise program he created for me and nutritional advice offered I have lost 9kg and dropped 2 dress sizes!

Michael is very understanding and takes the time to listen to your needs. Following h...is advice, I have made lifestyle changes that have not only lead to weight loss but an improvement in my overall wellbeing!

Training sessions with Michael are always varied and enjoyable. He is motivational and will encourage you to get through your workout even when you feel like giving up!

Michael is a fantastic personal trainer and I can't recommend him highly enough!" Trudi 25

Kevin Cloherty

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I have years of experience working in the health and fitness industry. I have gained a vast amount of knowledge and experience during that time. When you work with me as your Personal Trainer I will give you specific training programmes and nutritional guidance to help you achieve your goals.

The most important thing for me is helping you. There is nothing more rewarding than helping someone accomplish that goal they have always wanted to achieve with the help of my knowledge and experience.

I am a specialist in strength and conditioning training through functional exercise, sports performance training, weight management and muscle gain.

I am a footballer so therefore understand the physical demands that training sessions and games have on your body and know the importance that strength and conditioning along with recovery and nutrition has in order to succeed and perform well.

Nutrition is important for a healthy lifestyle. As a qualified Sports Nutritionist I can offer you nutritional guidance to help you achieve your goals. So if your goals are to build muscle mass, lose weight, improve your sports performance or to perform better in the gym then I can help you achieve this.

Joseph Henighen

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

As a lifelong trainer and recent sports science graduate, I have a diverse range of skills and qualities to bring to the forefront. My wealth of knowledge concerning human anatomy, movement and physiology coupled with a true passion for improving health and fitness will enable my clients to overcome and achieve their desired goals – whether you are looking to build muscle mass, lose weight, overcome injury or improve functional capacity, I have a methodical and tailored solution for you. I believe my biggest asset lies within my ability to educate and inspire my clients and I take immense pride knowing I can positively influence others to move forward.

What my Clients say:

"Before I started working with Joe, I was low on confidence and felt trapped by a negative mind-set. I was intimidated by the thought of going to the gym. Joe is brilliant at motivating me and has a no-nonsense approach, yet his sense of humour keeps the sessions fun. Working with Joe has changed my perception of myself and towards the gym. I am no longer scared of the weights room and I’m confident to complete workouts by myself."

Callum Hunter

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

I coach strength and conditioning movements as tools for improving health, quality of life, functional fitness and sports performance. You will learn gym exercises as transferable functional skills which support your goals of weight loss, muscle gain and improved range of motion enabling you to be your very best. I coach a holistic approach to wellbeing covering exercise, activity and nutrition. To resolve pain, prevent injury and optimise your physical capabilities I will coach you to stabilise your joints and brace to create a neutral spine for global stability.

You will feel and see measurable improvements in the development areas selected for training and enjoy the results of our training programme not just in the gym but in all areas of your life.

Too much time spent in the office and business travel encouraged me to study and practise a health and fitness lifestyle and I will support and motivate you on your journey to looking and feeling great.

Fitness has always played an extremely important aspect in my life enabling me to help my client’s achieve their own personal goals.

Sean Tierney

Wellbeing Personal Trainer

How can I help you improve your health?

My goal as a Wellbeing Personal Trainer is not just to help you with your fitness journey, but to eventually get you to a point where you don’t need my help anymore. To help you become autonomous, confident, determined and motivated enough to exercise regularly by making small, gradual and sustainable changes which fits your lifestyle is something I take great pride in, as exercise should complement your lifestyle and not be a burden! I also strongly believe that mental health is equally as important as our physical health and take a holistic approach to your health and fitness journey.

I have a huge passion for resistance training. It’s not only fun to do, but it can burn calories, help you towards your body composition goals, as well as improve various risk factors for falls which is what I chose to investigate for my research project during my Masters in Clinical Exercise Science. So, whether you are looking to improve your quality of life, improve your fitness, or just lose some weight, I’d love to help. I look forward to meeting you and helping you become the best you!

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the training sessions with Sean who at all times has been professional, easy to understand and has made the sessions fun and interesting and I have always wanted to come back for more sessions. The whole experience has been mind and body-changing and I have decided to continue with the sessions.”

"I have been training with Anne for around month now, starting when 14 weeks pregnant.  Although a regular gym user before I was unsure what was safe to do in pregnancy.  I feel in safe hands with Anne! Our sessions are clearly carefully planned but Anne is great at adapting on the day depending how I'm feeling.  I'm confident she'll continue to keep me fit and healthy throughout my pregnancy and I continue to look foward to my weekly PT sessions'"
