Andrea does not come from a sporting background herself, so understands just how intimidating it can be to walk through the doors of a gym for the first time. She specialises in working with beginners who are new to the training scene. She knows that change can be hard and enjoys working with clients to create an action step plan that suits their goals and individual lifestyles.
She began working in the ISI over 6 years ago, soon after completing the NCEHS in the National Training Centre. She values education highly, acknowledging the need to stay up to date on the latest research in training and nutrition. As a result, she has just become one of the first in Ireland to complete the year-long Precision Nutrition Level 2 Certification Program and looks forward to using her new skills to help you.
