I have always had a keen interest in sports, and basically anything health and fitness related. As a youngster, I played G.A.A. (badly). In my teenage years, I decided to take up boxing.

I participated in boxing for a total of four years, along the way I managed to win three County Titles and competed in the IABA Leinster and Irish Championships.

How did EQ Strength and Conditioning Start

After I decided to step away from boxing, (following my Leaving Cert) I entered college and started lifting weights in the gym. I really began focusing on my Training & Nutrition which was always a big part of my life.

One day, I decided to set up an Instagram account and within a short space of time, I gained a substantial number of followers through posting regularly in relation to Training and Nutrition.

Long story short, while on work placement in early 2016, I started receiving multiple messages via Instagram and emails from individuals asking me to devise Nutrition Plans and Training Programmes for them. I saw an opportunity, and I ran with it.

Within a month or so www.eqstrengthandconditioning.com was up and running and I have never looked back.
