    Chris Murphy

    I have been involved in fitness from a very young age, being reared in a very competitive family participating in many fields of sports, ranging from Soccer, GAA, Boxing, Golf, Distance running, Sprint running, evolving myself into the fitness industry was an obvious choice.

    I completed my level 2 fitness instructors course in 2010, a year later I completed my level 3 Personal Training.

    In 2015 I graduated my level 1 of world renowned Precision Nutrition and am currently sitting my level 2 Precision Nutrition Masters course. I hope to have my graduation by the summer of 2017. Having these certificates helps me further my knowledge and understanding of nutrition science and therefore optimising results for all types of clients.

    I have been practising ‘Online coaching’ also for approximately 3 years, transforming not only clients physiques but helping transform their lifestyles permanently.
    From having worked with clients from America, Australia, Germany, England and of course Ireland, local and international high level sports enthusiasts, bodybuilders and bikini competitors, people suffering from medical conditions such as Type 1 and Type 2 diabetes, CHD(coronary heart disease), Metabolic syndrome, high/low blood pressure, depression and many more, all the way down to the normal working mum of 3, I pride myself on results and optimising a new lifestyle for whomever I work with.

    I try to leave no stone unturned in obtaining desired goals, no matter the duration or how deconditioned the client be, where guiding them safely and healthily, creating a longing commitment to a better life overall is paramount.

    Hi my name is Roisin Torney I am 25 years old and have been a personal trainer for almost four years however I have been involved in sport practically my entire life. The main sports I am involved in are Gaelic football, Camogie and soccer playing each from 10 years of age.

    I have played county football for a number of years with my main achievements being an Ulster title and All-Ireland title. I have also travelled to Chicago to play gaelic football and Camogie. In Chicago I captained our Gaelic team to win a State Championship Title and played in the Camogie team where we picked up the North American Championship Title. My most recent achievement in GAA was winning the Intermediate Championship with my local club.

    I have a BSc Honours Degree in Communication, Advertising and Marketing with a diploma in Professional Practice but having worked in the industry for a number of years decided it wasn’t for me and to follow my long term passion for health and fitness. I gained my level 2 fitness instructing qualification followed by my level 3 in personal training and am currently studying to become a fully qualified nutrition coach with Body Type Nutrition aiming to have my award by April 2017. Thankfully leaving my 9-5 job was the best decision I ever made; I love my job! I love helping people achieve their goals, seeing their progress and being a part of their journey to being fitter, healthier and happier in their own skin.

    I currently work out of Gymdock Downpatrick with personal training clients and also have Bootcamps and fitness classes in the Downpatrick area.
