“I am in my mid 40’s and started training with Mike in 2013. Mike and I agreed my fitness goals – improve overall strength, flexibility and fitness to support my sail racing and reduce my waist line. I brought various aches and pains – sensitive back, dodgy knee and a post arthroscopy shoulder.
The training programmes with Mike are enjoyable, hard work and get results – I have dropped over a stone in weight, significantly increased upper body strength and improved the endurance in my legs (really important for hiking on a sailing dinghy). Additionally, my aches and pains have gone and I do not consider them now when undertaking any exercise. The new studio is fabulous and has a great range of equipment which is in pristine condition and always available. Mike is personable, professional (he is always on his game and there has never been a duff session), he is exceptionally reliable and well organised and above all entirely focused on your training needs and goals. I cannot recommend him highly enough.”

“I really like the fact that Noirin really did work around me and what I needed given I was recovering from a serious accident. I was worried before starting this that the PT I had would simply try and build ‘muscles on my ears’ without considering what I can and can’t do given the neck/brain injury I suffered. I must say that fear was never realised with Noirin. I appreciate her motivating nature with all of this and I really don’t think I could do it alone. I like the way she geared up my routines so much around my rehab and exact needs. I was worried when I started all of this, my chosen PT would be someone who just did not understand me or the background but I have absolutely no complaints.”

“I’ve been training with Kerry for just over a month following an operation on my hand which included bone removal and carpel tunnel decompression. Being an active person who regularly works out, I was frustrated at the thought of not being able to train. Kerry however was having none of it and devised a programme which works around my injuries and is helping with my rehabilitation . She has been fantastic in her support and encouragement, devising a really tough workout , even for someone wearing a plaster cast! Kerry is totally focused on understanding each client’s thresholds and capabilities. Having trained with many PTs over a period of ten years, Kerry stands out – her knowledge and professionalism are second to none.”

“Mike’s fitness plan for my wedding was excellent, he really listened to the areas I wanted to improve and helped me get great results for my big day, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend him.”

“Having taken up road cycling 16 months ago I was keen to improve my overall performance particularly up the hills. With Kerry’s help I went from zero to not quite hero, but I did make it up Alp d’Huez in September – what was previously an unthinkable target. Kerry is fantastic to work with and understands that I need the odd rib eye and pint! Cannot recommend Kerry and in fact the whole team at Ocean fitness enough!”

“I’ve been training with Kerry for just over 10 weeks now and I have signed up for 10 more sessions. I can honestly say this has been the best decision I have made in 2015. My goal is to get my fitness back up and get back into running.
Before I arrived for my first training session I had the normal dread and thoughts of “oh know what am I doing.” But to my shock I left feeling positive, with a goal in my mind and most of all I had fun.
Kerry is down to earth and very knowledgeable about fitness. I have learnt a lot about my diet and how to train correctly. I never thought I would enjoy the bike and after my first cycle I felt exhausted but after a few weeks with Kerry’s positive energy and you can do it attitude I am starting to enjoy it and believe in myself more.
Kerry is a brilliant personal trainer and she has given me the correct attitude towards fitness “you can do it”.”
