My Purpose (and why The Feelgood Coach?)
I'm part of a movement of women who want to feel great, and take control of their lives.
I hate calorie counting, point counting and dieting.
I hate diet pills, weight loss supplements, Weight Watchers, Slimming world, and being a slave to the scales.
I tried for years to lose weight, and get to a really healthy place. I thought you had to diet, I was afraid to lift weights. I thought you had to weigh every morsel of food. Did you hear the same? Have you heard that carbs are bad? That you can only lose weight if you go into major calorie deficit?
That’s all lies, and you don’t have to do that. You don’t have to spend hours in the gym, and you don’t need to give up the foods you love.
I chased weight loss as a goal when feeling good should have been my goal.
That’s why I created The Feelgood Movement, to share with you the tools that finally helped me lose the three stone, keep it off, and learn to love myself.
Committed to your success,
After graduating from UCD I moved to Paris to live out my dreams!
I partied too hard, and became really unhealthy. At one point I was 3 stone over weight, and started to get really anxious and stressed.
Panic attacks became a regular occurrence, and eventually I had a full breakdown.
My life was in tatters.
I moved to Galway to try to piece my life together, and while working as a waitress in Fat Freddies on Quay street, I decided I needed to lose weight
Many unsuccessful attempts later, I tried Weight Watchers, Slimming world, calorie counting, and I hated it. It made me feel worse.
I felt like a failure stuck in a vicious cycle of weight gain and weight loss.
It all felt so negative. One day, a friend at Fat Freddies, invited me along for a run, so I went along. And it transformed my life forever.
I fell in love with feeling good, and working towards feeling good and getting healthy, not watching the scales. I completely over-hauled my life, and I loved it so much,
I decide to qualify as a Personal trainer and study how the habits we have on a daily basis, effect our lives so much.
I became a full time Personal Trainer and started my business, Inspire Fitness. I’ve grown it from just me, to now a team of six.
We empower women and help them feel really good about themselves, that’s how The Feelgood Coach name came about.
I got married, had two kids, and kept growing the business. While pregnant with Emily, my second, we grew so fast, we had to re-locate to the Tuam rd, from Barna.
Delays in the building work, and nothing going to plan, saw me back at work, 5 weeks after Emily was born.
That brought on post-natal depression.It took a good year and a half to get back to feeling great again, and that time has really made me appreciate how important it is to look after you, and to get the balance right.
Inspire Fitness has now gone from strength to strength and we’ve helped 1,000’s of women, get fit healthy, and to a place that they feel great and can at least begin to love themselves.
As a small business owner & mum of two, I understand the huge demands you're under, and how easy it is to go through life on auto-pilot, not finding the time to take care of you.
If you're struggling to get fit, if you're tired, feeling stressed and would love to feel happier, healthier and more fulfilled, I want to hear from you.
