Meet the Elite Team


A course is only as good as the person giving it, that’s why our instructors are the best in the Irish fitness industry.

Not only do our instructors give some of the best courses available, they are all full time fitness professionals. Most have been involved in the fitness industry from a young age – from martial artists, powerlifters, international sprinters to nutritional scientists – before taking the leap themselves to realise their dreams of becoming fitness professionals. As well as instructing at Elite, all are full time in the fitness industry running their own gyms, coaching practices or seminars.

If you want to know if the fitness industry is the right place for you then have a look at our instructors. These are all people who took that leap of faith and have never had to work a day in their lives since.
