Hi! My name is Seamus Toomey.
I'm 44 years old, I'm a personal trainer from Limerick, Ireland.
I've been a trainer now for over 15 years, working exclusively with clients 1-1. For the last 10 years I've had my own gym, Elite Personal Training. We are a boutique style private personal training studio hidden away in Raheen Business park. We don't really advertise, you wont find us easily on facebook, instagram etc... we operate mostly by word of mouth. We have 5 trainers and we are almost always booked to capacity.
If you would like to learn more about what we do, or you think face to face training is definitely for you, scoot over to personaltraininginlimerick.com
As I said, I've been training clients 1-1 for 15+years. I've trained clients from 14 years old to 70 years old. If I were to pick a "typical" client, they are 30-55 years old, they want to look better and feel better. The client will usually train for over a year to achieve their desired goal but we do have clients that have been training for over 5 or even 10 years. This client sees personal training as an investment in their overall well-being and is usually in much better shape than anyone their own age.
We also train clients who have limitations. eg: Stroke, car accident, heart attack, pre and post natal, neck injury....etc.. far too many to name here. We also train clients for sports such as triathlon, running, GAA, rugby, tennis, golf etc...
Who is this site for?
This site is for those of you who want to get control over your diet, get that "toned" look, get fitter and get healthier. And of course, to keep it that way!
I'm certified by numerous personal training organisations, I'm a Precision Nutrition Level 1 and Level 2 coach, and I'm certified by the Online Training Academy. Now, I know these certifications mean nothing to you if you're not working in the fitness industry, but I'm going to explain a little about them so that you understand that you're going to be working with someone who you can trust.
My own qualifications
AIF - Master Trainer
American Council On Exercise - Personal Trainer
National Academy of Sports Medicine - Performance Enhancement
KG Elite Performance Dublin - Strength and Conditioning Coach
PN - Level One and Level 2 Nutrition Coach
Online Training Academy - Certified ONLINE Trainer (specific course for delivery of online personal training and coaching)
A note on PN - Precision Nutrition "PN"is a company founded by Dr John Berardi. John is simply one of the gurus/ legends of all things fitness for the last decade. Although I hate to use words like guru it's hard to define how influential he has been.
Level 1 PN is the nuts and bolts of nutrition. Nutrition is a very complex subject. You might think that all nutrition can be boiled down to a handy instagram post about how omega 3 fats are good for you. This course comes with a 600 page science backed textbook and of a lengthy exam at the end.
Level 2 PN is everything that Level 1 isn't. It's a year long course on coaching. It is packed full of the psychology of why we behave (and eat) the way we do, and most importantly, the psychology of how to change those behaviours.
Everyone is looking for a diet to lose weight, you don't need that, you need to be coached through a process which leads to behaviour change, which leads to a life where you don't really need to think about dieting ever again.
Because I am certified through Precision Nutrition, I have access to their software system that will deliver my online coaching. No excel pages, no YouTube videos encouraging you to jump around your living room etc... this is a professional system that has already been used to coach more than 100,000 clients worldwide.
Thanks for reading, back to the website now to find out how this works!
