For as long as I can remember sports and fitness have always been my passion in life. Over the years I have compete at the highest levels at numerous sports including soccer, karate and most recently bodybuilding, winning 2 Mr Ireland national titles and competing at the prestigious NABBA Mr Universe on multiple occasions. Although for a long time my primary focus was competition, what I have achieved and learned throughout my experience, with regards to health, exercise, nutrition and mindset, exceeds far beyond just titles and trophies.
Who do I work with?
I have worked in the fitness industry as a personal trainer and lifestyle coach for over ten years now and I have worked with literally hundreds of clients from all walks of life to help them achieve their goals. Whether you are a Personal trainer or fitness instructor interested in upskilling your knowledge of exercise execution and technique, a seasoned gym goer looking to advance and take your training up a notch, or a complete beginner with little to no experience in the gym, my role as a coach is to assess where you are currently at, and to create a plan to guide and educate you with the tools needed for you to achieve consistent progress and long term sustainable results.
You are not alone…
Here are some of the most common issues I have encountered while working with people over the years, some of which you may relate to.
They are committed to the gym but not achieving the results they desire
Hating what they see in the mirror (even people who are in shape)
Not being happy with their weight on the scales
Unsure if they are training correctly and safely
Not going to the gym because it’s a scary intimidating place
Have experienced a decrease in, or complete lack of, energy and drive
Feeling unworthy due to unrealistic expectations set by tv and social media
Over committing to unsustainable diet or training regimes (that’s a big one)
Being poorly informed and mis-sold on unnecessary diet supplements
Not having the confidence in themselves to achieve desired goals
Simply not knowing where to even begin!
The list goes on…
If any of the above sounds familiar, you may rest assured you are not alone, so please feel free to get in touch and lets get you moving in the right direction.
WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
John / Remax Ireland
Really enjoying training at the moment with Neil Farrell . Its fantastic to have a personal trainer that eats sleeps and drinks what he does and knows his business inside out . I pride myself in setting the highest standards for my clients in my own business and for the first time ever I can truly say I’m blessed to have met someone who lives by the same high standards in their business , no bullshit , no excuses “Just Do It”
Darren / Personal Trainer
After noticing I had developed an imbalance in my back (scapular winging) I approached Neil to see if he could help with this. I reckoned I it was something that had come on over a few years so I thought it would take some time to fix. But after training with Neil, learning how to activate specific muscles and eliminating bad movement patterns I had built up over the years, we have fixed something in a few weeks, which I thought would take a few months.
Lisa / Manager
Honestly to say I’m happy with the difference is an understatement. Working with Neil I am down in clothes size, body-fat and inches. The only increase has been to my strength and confidence. I would highly recommend working with Neil for anyone wanting to get results.
Peter / Doctor
I set out with the goal of wanting to get fitter and lose weight. I was always self conscious of going to a gym and using weights, but Neil has a great approach to training and is extremely helpful and encouraging. I’m really pleased with my improvements in this first month and am looking forward to the next few months!
Jeff / Graduate
Working with Neil I have to say I’m feeling so much better all round. Having a structure in terms of eating and exercising means that I have good consistent energy all day, and I’m sleeping much better every night. I haven’t exercised properly in 5 or 6 years but I’ve gotten on track really quickly… I really like Neil’s style of coaching, focusing doing every rep technically correct as opposed to just lifting heavy weights.
Alan / Engineer
I had a major posture imbalance due to training the wrong way in the past, and Neil spotted this within the first time meeting him. We set out an exercise regime to correct this and also build an change my body composition for the better. I lost weight without being to strict and hugely improved my energy levels. The training is tough and Neil is extremely attentive and diligent, really emphasis on safety, correct posture and technique.
Catherine / Nurse
Even though I have trained for years and used to kill myself going to the gym 5 times a week , Neil has got me results with 2-3 sessions a week. He takes his time to teach the proper technique and I have really felt myself get stronger each week. I would recommend Neil to anyone as this is the type of trainer I’ve been waiting for ! Really delighted with the results after my 6 weeks of training & have already signed up for more
Sinead / Psychologist
Only wish I’d started training with Neil long before now. Can’t recommend his smart programming and educated diet advice enough, no matter where you are in your level of fitness or what your goal.
Jakob / Student
Neil Farrell has completely turned my life around, given me a new outlook on both food and exercise and given me the confidence to continue on my fitness journey. I would recommend anyone who is struggling with their weight, fitness and living a healthy lifestyle to go see him. I would highly recommend him to anyone.
Darren / Engineer
After the first 12 weeks I have learned and achieved more then I could of hoped for. I’ve lost approx 12kg (with zero cardio by the way!) and I’m looking forward to continuing my progress with Neil, as now I finally have the confidence and belief I can and will actually achieve my new years resolutions this time around
Patricia / Physiotherapist
Neil is a no nonsense trainer who has an in-depth knowledge base to back up his training methods. He has an excellent knowledge of functional anatomy and muscle control. Because of this understanding we train and isolate muscle groups precisely and safely, which also insures minimum risk of injury. But most importantly… HE GETS RESULTS!!
