I started my PT with Kevin almost a month ago and its the best thing I’ve ever done for myself! I was shaking with nerves as I had never been in a gym before, Kevin was so lovely and explained everything so well to me, I’m loving my journey so far and Kevin pushes me to do my best and is always there to answer questions I have, regret not starting sooner as I’m feeling so much happier and confident in myself, the gym it’s self is top class and the atmosphere at EQ is deadly and has completely changed my attitude towards working out 💪🏻

Hands down best decision I've ever made was joining EQ in January this year. Since day one, Emmet has always been so helpful, informative and accommodating.I am over half way through 12 weeks of PT with Mark Hayes and I don't think my words can do him justice. He is an excellent coach - very professional, knowledgeable and always so motivating. Such an asset to EQ. His attention to detail is top class and he's opened my eyes to correct training. The education I'm getting in terms of nutrition and training is invaluable. The healthy habits I have picked up are now second nature so I can definitely see myself sticking to them. I'm very impressed with the progress we've made. I wouldn't have achieved any of it without Mark's guidance. I am also really enjoying the classes since I signed up. Feeling stronger and more confident by the week 💪🏻Everything about EQ is top class 💯 From the welcomes you get, to the gym itself, the equipment, the atmosphere, the coaches... everything. You can be guaranteed that the service you get in here will be unmatched. The lads bring a lot of energy to the place and it really contributes to the positive and uplifting atmosphere EQ has. No matter your level is all the coaches want the best for every member. I really admire how dedicated and passionate all the lads are to their professions and how driven they are about their own goals. Very inspiring people to be around!Forever grateful for all I am learning and will continue to learn under their guidance 💛🖤Could not recommend EQ highly enough!

I initially started on a 7 week PT with classes membership and I had Mark as my PT. I’ve found the whole experience excellent, my PT sessions are productive and pitched at my own level with loads of encouragement to improve. The classes are energetic with lots of interaction from the coaches and you feel you have really benefited after each session. I’ve extended my membership as I am thoroughly enjoying it and can really see the results already!

Joining EQ was without a doubt one of the best decisions I ever made. When I started in EQ I wasn’t happy with how I looked or felt in myself. I had put on weight and was really struggling to even find the motivation to go to the gym. One night I finally bit the bullet and messaged Emmet about PT, equal parts nervous but also curious to see what all the hype was about and let me tell you it exceeds all expectations! From the minute I walked in everyone was so friendly and welcoming. It didn’t matter if you had never picked up a weight before or had been lifting for years Emmet and the lads were always on hand to offer advice and support.I have to give a big shout out to Kevin O’Brien my PT for the last 7 weeks, I couldn’t have done it without him! The encouragement and support from Kevin was next level. Always at the other end of the phone if I had a question or problem and he had me lifting weights I never would have thought possible previously! The confidence I have gained from EQ is something I will take with me and I couldn’t thank Emmet, Kevin and all the lads enough for all their help and encouragement. Emmet has a top notch team and facility around him it’s easy to see why they’re the best at what they do and also why people who have been, can’t stop talking about them. If you do one thing for yourself my advice would be to join EQ. I can promise you won’t regret it!

I started PT with Luke and membership classes at EQ Strength and Conditioning about 3 weeks ago and it has been the best decision I have ever made. From the moment I walked through the door, I was made to feel so comfortable and at ease. The professionalism and friendliness from all the lads is unreal. I'm loving every minute of it and my whole outlook on exercise and nutrition has been completely changed for the better. So excited for what is to come with EQ and even though I'm only 3 weeks in, I now couldn't imagine ever being without it! If you're considering joining up, just go for it because you won't regret it 😁💪

Myself and Louise are members of EQ Strength and Conditioning for the last few months and we can both say its the best decision we have ever made. The level of professionalism from Emmet and all his staff is second to none. From the very moment you walk through the door you are met with a friendly atmosphere and a state of the art facility suitable for everyone.With new equipment arriving on a regular basis this just goes to show how dedicated Emmet and his team are to helping everyone to improve their health and fitness.The lads are there every session to motivate you and push you to achieve your goals.We have gained great knowledge on how to get the most out of our training and how to build on this. Because of this type of training you can feel the work being done but not feel drained after class and keep coming back for more.From early morning sessions to evening sessions, it allows you to find the time to fit in a class no matter what your schedule. EQ provides a type of training that you will not find in any other facility in the country. Anyone thinking of joining just do it you won't regret it 👊👊

I have been going to Emmet since he opened his gym last year and it’s the best thing I’ve ever started. As an absolute beginner everything was explained clearly and I was shown so much patience to get where I wanted to be and am seeing continuous improvements. As a class based member and a PT client the support you get from all at EQ is above and beyond. Couldn’t recommend enough.

For someone who was conscious of having to walk into a gym and train, any anxiety I felt was immediately lost when I entered the door at EQ Strength & Conditioning. This is down to the professionalism, encouragement and enjoyment of the classes. I’ve flipped my lifestyle from being relatively inactive to one that now enjoys exercise and pushing myself to the next level. This couldn’t have been done without Emmet and Luke so I’d encourage anyone thinking about availing of their services to stop thinking and make the positive change towards a better lifestyle.

Henry Healy

I started peronsal training with Emmet back in January 2018 and it was fantastic so this year I decided to sign up to Emmets new female transformation group. It was truly one of the best decisions I’ve ever made! Everyone in the group was so friendly and it was such a nice enviornment to train in. I did go through a dip in motivation halfway through but thanks to Luke I pulled my socks up and continued on.

I’m now in the middle of my second transformation group and I am loving every minute of it! So much so, that I’ve signed up for more personal training. I’ve improved my strenght massively, my physical and mental health have also changed and I feel so much more confident in the gym.

The dedication from both Emmet and Luke shows not only in their work but also in their own training. They are constantly building on their knowledge and pushing to be the best trainers they can be.Their passion and dermination makes me strive to continue my fitness journey and to be the best version of myself!

EQ strength and conditioning is, without a doubt, second to none!

Rebekah Conlon

I joined EQ Strength & Conditioning over a year ago. My first passion was running, I had joined the gym from time to time but never stuck at it, as I didn’t know what to do and felt intimidated by weights. I decided to join up for a 7 week personal training programme with Emmet to “educate myself” on weight lifting – a year later – I’m hooked! I have achieved Personal Best’s in both my 5k and half marathon times. Emmet has always taken “race week” into consideration for me and works with me (who knew lifting weights would help to run faster!) I feel fitter and stronger than I have ever been and continue to learn so much, down to nutrition and techniques/form while lifting. I never tire or get used to the programme in class as it is constantly changed, shocking both myself and the body!! Emmet is extremely professional and knowledgeable in all aspects of strength and conditioning. From day one he made me feel so comfortable, no such thing as a stupid question (I‘ve asked them all). Each class is thoroughly enjoyable in a state of the art facility, surrounded by like-minded people, all encouraging each other. The atmosphere is like no other class I have ever done.
So if you’re thinking of joining – STOP THINKING AND JOIN, you will NOT regret it.

Maria Maher

Started in eq in August/September 2018 and haven’t looked back since. My experience in the gym has always been a positive one from the lads to all the members the energy is great, we are all there to workout but can still have the craic too. I have always taken part in the membership classses and they always challenge you and test your limits and they change every 6-8 weeks so keeps ya on your toes. I have taken part in personal training with both Emmet and Luke and they both are amazing at what they do, the knowledge they have is unbelievable(can understand their frustration now about people who get so called qualified after a few weeks, no way ya could learn all of what they have in that length🙈) I could stay rambling on all day about the gym cause I truly love it there but I won’t. Seriously if ya have any doubts about joining/starting get over yourself and just do it we are all there for the same reasons💪☺✌

Leann Colclough

You will never regret joining this gym – A gym like no other.

I nervously joined EQ S&C in July 2018, as an absolute beginner, not really knowing what to expect, and it really is one of the best decisions I have ever made.

From Day 1, I was welcomed in and made to feel at ease. Emmet and Luke are so professional and put everything into making this gym a state of the art facility that people can come to get fitter, stronger and healthier, whatever size or stage they are at. The lads positive attitudes create such an encouraging atmosphere in the classes, so much so, that I have gone from using every excuse in the book, to moving heaven and earth to make sure I get my sessions in every week!!

Honestly, my health and mindset has transformed since joining EQ S&C and I am so grateful to Emmet for creating the space for this to happen.

Emma Guerin

A great coach like Emmet was not easy to find.

Having tried coaches in the past, EQ strength & conditioning exceeded my expectations.

Professional, Knowledgeable & Motivational best describe Emmet’s appraoch to his clients.

His facility is top class.

Emmet helped me achieve personal goals but also helped me set new ones- which
I am working towards achieving under his watchful eye.

I would highly recommend EQ strength & conditioning to anybody with a fitness goal, who is looking for support and motivation.

Jacinta Parkinson

Having previously done online coaching and personal training with Emmet I started classes at EQ strength and conditioning in August and I have never looked back. I can’t recommend this gym enough. The facilities and equipment are second to none. Both Emmet and Luke are top class coaches and will go above and beyond to help you achieve your goals! The atmosphere at classes is unreal & everyone there is so encouraging. I’d recommend EQ to anyone looking to take their training to the next level 💪🏻

Shauna Fitzgerald

I started going to EQ last September after hearing great reviews from other members. I was a complete beginner with no experience walking in the door. I was welcomed openly and shown how to do everything correctly with incredible patience. The classes are tough but there’s a real sense of achievement when you get through them! Emmet,Luke and Kevin constantly challenge you to always be improving. As both a class based member and a PT client I’m so grateful I started. It’s the best thing you could do for you. I can’t believe how far I’ve come strength wise and my attitude to going to the gym has completely changed.

Linda Fitzpatrick

I have followed Emmet since he opened his gym last year .I had 3 kids in 2 years and I wanted to get rid of my twin belly I was so insecure with it . Emmet set me in the right direction from day 1 between PT, tracking calories and classes. I have met so many new friends and I love the classes, great socialising for me anyway. Emmet, Luke and Kevin are so professional during classes great for inspiring you to lift heavier, work harder and to achieve your goals.
I have never been more inspired and motivated since joining in January 2019.
I have achieved a huge amount of toning and fat loss.
Best gym and coaches I have ever worked it

Colette Fletcher

I joined EQ strength and conditioning about 4 months ago very nervously.. But there was no need to be as Emmet Luke, and Kevin were so welcoming and really made me feel so comfortable I felt very relaxed very quickly. I have to say it’s the best equipped gym i have ever been in the equipment in the gym is top quality.. I have really got back my confidence again in lifting weights and trying out new techniques and using new equipment and since starting i have gone down in my clothes I am a size smaller and I am noticing how my body is toning up and how much it has really helped with my diabetes managing it better because of exercising… The three lads are so patient and will push you to achieve your goals you are looking for..I really couldn’t recommend them enough there the best and I can’t wait to achieve my goals and to continue on training in the gym you really do feel like your part of a family…LOVE IT…😁💪🤩

Laura Fogarty

I have been going to classes at EQ Strength & Conditioning since March 2019. I have followed Emmet on Instagram since he opened his gym in Roscrea and always thought it was something I would love to try. I was apprehensive as I thought I wouldn’t be fit or strong enough to keep up with other members in the gym. I’m so glad I bit the bullet and joined when I did. I have not felt fitter, stronger or happier in myself in a long time. EQ caters for people of all ages, sizes and levels of fitness. No matter what your goal is the guys here will help you achieve it. When you walk in the door it doesn’t feel like walking into a gym for the first time. Everyone is super friendly and welcoming. It’s more like one big happy family than a gym. There is always a positive atmosphere when you come in for a class. Emmet, Luke & Kevin are all top class trainers in a fantastic state of the art gym. Always there to help you out and guide you in the right direction. Emmet is so passionate about what he does, he meets you with a smile when you come in for classes and is always investing in the gym with new equipment arriving monthly. We are lucky to have such a facility on a door step and it’s great to see the people of Roscrea and surrounding areas supporting Emmet. I look forward to seeing what the future holds for EQ Strength & Conditioning 💪
