Meet The Trainers

Gavin Brown

Gavin was first introduced to the gym at age 17, after always having an interest in sports Gavin decided to do a Health Promotion and Physical Activity Course at Dundalk Institute of Technology.

While working abroad and in commercial gyms he became frustrated working for someone else who had little to no interest in someone succeeding but instead all only cared about financial gain.

“My job as a trainer is to coach and empower people to succeed firstly. My passion in life is getting people to where they want to be”. Having set up a PT and Bootcamp business since 2013 achieving amazing results Gavin decided in order to reach more people a larger facility was needed to cater for the growing numbers of people seeking his expertise and so The Fitness Academy was established.

My Philosophy and Message

In my opinion, everyone has endless potential. It’s what we do with that potential that defines us. We all have factors which have stopped us achieving our goals in the past.

Fear is the number one reason in my opinion why people don’t get to where they want to be. Fear is universal, it affects everyone.

Fear of the unknown, fear of failure, fear that you can’t do it, fear of falling down, fear of what your friends will say, fear of not fitting in and fear of starting.

The hardest part is the getting started.

Fear and procrastination run side by side. Fear causes procrastination and procrastination cause more fear. The time will never be just right. Action and consistency will obliterate fear and end putting things on the long finger. ‘Action’ is the first step. Without action, nothing will ever change. If someone has done what you want to do, IT CAN BE DONE.

We all have unlimited potential but without action, this potential will never be realised and therefore results will never be achieved. Action needs to be taken on a consistent basis. Only then will the results be seen.

So are you afraid, are you procrastinating, waiting for everything to be just right? Are you fed up, sick of having low energy? Wanting to feel and look better, want to lose weight long term? Do you tell yourself I’ll start Monday? Will next year be different?

The Fitness Academy is not just another gym, we will be the last solution you ever need.
