about ME

“I’ve grown up always wanting to see how far I can push myself. My competitive nature has kept me focused on achieving the goals that I’ve set for myself. When I was growing up, I played just about every sport I could. I exceled in Rugby, Athletics and Squash, and competed at the provincial level in my teenage years. After leaving school, I spent years competing in competitive bodybuilding, Mixed Martial Arts, and competitive mountain biking. And over the recent years, I have competed in CrossFit which remains to be as challenging as ever.

With close to a decade in the fitness industry, my strength as a trainer is the ability to relate to my clients really well, and keep them motivated and accountable to the goals they have set out for themselves. In return, the knowledge, wisdom, and stories my clients have shared with me over the years have been the best thing about my coaching career. Focusing on longevity is the most important personal fitness goal for me. To be able to enjoy life to its fullest because I’m healthy, strong, and fit is what motivates me, and drives the work I do with my clients.”

about me

“I’ve always been sporty since I was little. Sports and fitness runs in my family. My big brother whom I look up to exceled at it, and my dad used to be the National Silat Champion when he was younger. I guess that’s where my athleticism and competitiveness came from. Growing up, my dad has always encouraged me to be active in sports, and motivated me to do well in them. I don't think I've had a year in my life of not doing any form of fitness...ever! To me, being fit and healthy is living a lifestyle that positively fuels me inside and out. More importantly, a lifestyle that keeps me mentally, physically, and emotionally happy.

My strength as a trainer lies in helping my clients to be aerobically fit for day-to-day activities (doesn’t matter if you’re a CrossFit athlete, or just want to move better in your everyday life), and to become more confident in their own skin. I love uncovering my clients’ hidden potential. Many of them have surprised me by how much grit they bring to training – I can see it every time they push themselves to the edge of their comfort zones. It makes me realise that everyone is on their own journey. And despite the differences in each of our paths, I can honestly relate with all of them and be inspired by their hard work and determination!”

about

Megan is a world-class CrossFit athlete, who has competed in the European CrossFit regionals three times as both an individual and part of a team. In 2017, she competed at the US CrossFit Games as part of a British team after winning their European region. 

Megan followed her passion for fitness and health by completing a degree in Sport Science and Physiology in Leeds in 2009. She then started her fitness career as a Rehab Therapist in the UK at the Fire Fighters Rehab Centre in the Lake District, working alongside physiotherapists for three years which led her to doing a Masters degree in Physiotherapy. She then worked at the NHS for six months in intensive care with a respiratory focus. 


In 2017 she was both a full-time CrossFit competitor and coach, and after tearing her knee cartilage, had surgery six weeks prior to the regionals. Working closely with her Physiotherapist and coach, she recovered and successfully competed at regionals and went onto the CrossFit Games. 


From her own personal experience, and her academic background of Degrees in both Sports Science and Physiotherapy, Megan has an excellent understanding of how a disciplined approach to rehab can get you straight back into fitness in a very short time frame. And as an exercise therapist with UFIT and success as an athlete she’s passionate about building a strong link between your physio work and your fitness goals. 


As she coaches and helps clients recover, she loves to take on people who are new to fitness and health - their first pull-up may seem small - but it’s a huge step, and she finds "getting people to understand how the body works is the most rewarding thing". Equally she enjoys working with high-level athletes and appreciates the marginal gains that can be made when you’re a serious competitor and the importance of achieving them.

Qualifications

  • BSc Sports Science & Physiology, Leeds University
  • MSc Physiotherapy, Northumbria University

about

Maybe it is because I am Irish, but I have always been drawn to travelling, meeting new people and experiencing different cultures. I have worked as a personal trainer in cities in New Zealand, Australia, and the UK. I also spent several months travelling and interning at gyms around the United States, meeting and learning from the best people in the industry. I spent nearly two years with Tennis Ireland helping the national team improve their physical performance.

My personal fitness goals is to achieve the best physique I can while staying fit and most importantly – injury free. Being fit and healthy to me means finding a form of exercise that you enjoy, and staying consistent with it. The exercise and foods that you eat should add to and enrich your life, not the other way around.

My strength as a trainer is in my ability to understand my clients and gain their trust. I love being a part of my clients’ progress, not only the physical changes as they lose weight and build muscles, but I love seeing how people become more confident in themselves and just generally loving life!

about

“I have always enjoyed being active since an early age, playing sports and going to the gym. While I was completing my Bachelor’s in Economics, I was inspired to become a Personal Trainer as well as entering into my first natural bodybuilding physique contest. During this time I discovered my love for fitness and became even more passionate to help others on their fitness journey.

My personal fitness goal is in achieving my full potential in natural bodybuilding and powerlifting, staying injury-free and being able to move well. To me, being fit and healthy means having a good relationship with food, maintaining a consistency and balance in training, and making health and fitness a part of my lifestyle.

My strength as a trainer is in showing my clients a sustainable, evidence-based approach to training, providing a flexibility in their nutrition, and build training around their lifestyle. I find it incredibly rewarding to be in the position to help my clients achieve their goals, whether be it in improving their body composition, rehabilitation from an injury, building confidence, or living a healthier lifestyle. I love witnessing the wins, no matter how small.”

My strength as a trainer is my ability to motivate and make my clients feel good about themselves and their achievements. I see their strengths and highlight it to them. I find that very important to keep them moving forward and making visible progress. I love seeing them become a better and stronger version of themselves. With that I get to see their confidence grow and how it impacts all areas of their life. I love how I am given the opportunity to make such a positive change in someone’s life.

about

I have always been an active individual. At the age of 10 I started playing soccer competitively for my elementary school. At 12 I got interested in skateboarding, and at 16 I started learning Muay Thai. These activities were the foundation of my love for fitness and it made me realise the importance of strength and endurance. I was skinny from a young age and got motivated to start training with weights after seeing the progress some friends made. Having made significant progress myself I decided I wanted to help others feel better about how they look and that is when I decided to become a personal trainer.

My personal fitness goals is to get stronger and attain a well built physique in a safe and progressive manner. This means fueling my body with good nutrients to help me sustain my energy levels for a good workout, and developing good eating habits. With the right balance, I believe we can enjoy all types food – that is a healthy mindset to adopt.

My favourite quote:

“If you think it's expensive to hire a professional to do the job, wait until you hire an amateur.” - Red Adair

My favourite cheat meal: 
I don’t think it’s psychologically healthy to look at certain food as cheating. As long as you manage portions and have a balanced diet you can enjoy all types of food!

My biggest fear:

Haha my dad once told me never to share my fears with anyone. Know them but don’t share them.

Best advice given to me:

Always count my blessings. It might be a bad day, but not a bad life.

Self-motivation mantra:

Don’t wish for it, work for it.
