  • Best gym in Limerick to be in. The training plans and circuit workouts is never the same from abs, sparring, kicking, pushing the prowler, kettlebells, etc, etc, etc. Training is serious but we always have a good laugh and great fun. Dermot and Catherine is the best. They do personal training too and you be amaze by doing what you think you cant do. This is the place where my membership will never expire.

  • Catherine has helped me overcome so many obstacles. When I first met her, I was taking 6 painkillers a day due to chronic low back pain. I was feeling down due to the pain and powerless to do anything about it. It was getting to the point where I was thinking of giving up work. However, through Catherine’s guidance, I finally learned how to perform exercises pain free and I am now doing strength and conditioning exercises I never dreamed I would be able to do. Catherine’s gentle, postive and encouraging nature continues to inspire me each week I train with her. I now work 6 days a week, feel strong mentally and physically and I’m very happy – all of which is down to Catherine. I cannot recommend her enough and will never be able to thank her enough.
