Lifefit Gym is the culmination of Paul Dunne's decade of experience in the fitness industry. Having worked as a Personal trainer, fitness instructor, gym manager, regional manager and strength and conditioning coach with clients interested in body recomposition, strength, power, mobility, rehabilitation and performance. In 2018 he designed and implemented a fundamental movement skills programme which rolled out to 7 schools in North Clare over 3 months. This programme was again running in 2020 until the closure of the schools halted it.
LifeFit gym reflects Paul's desire that everyone from an 8 year old who wants to play fun games to an 80 year old who wants to stay strong and mobile …and everything in between including weightlifters, powerlifters, bodybuilders, total novices, weekend warriors and 1 day a week class goers should have a place to feel part of. For me everyone should feel comfortable and have fun regardless of shape, size, strength, age, gender, orientation or ability level.
