Sean McGarrity, the director of Elite Fitness & Performance Academy has been instructing students at his academies in Blackrock since 2011. He has built Elite into the greatest provider of courses for the fitness industry with graduates being commended in gyms all over the country. He surrounded himself with the best fitness minds and coaches in Ireland to realise his true passion of educating the elite in the fitness industry.
Prior to his time as director of fitness professional academies, Sean has had over 20 years business experience and has headed up some of the most successful franchise operations in Ireland. He used his experiences of managing large sales teams and franchising operations when he set up Leisure Industry Academy Dublin.
Training from the age of 15, Sean was inspired by Arnold and Bruce Lee, giving him a huge focus on martial arts when he studied Jiu Jitsu, MMA, Kickboxing and Muay Thai. To back up his training goals, he put an emphasis on sprinting and weight training. Having competed at various events through the years, he transferred these skills and experience and gained the necessary qualifications to enable him to train clients as a career direction and has been pursuing this ever since.
Over the last 3 years in Dublin, Sean has developed one of the leading training providers in the market place and has changed the way fitness professionals are educated in line with the evolution of the industry. However, Sean’s mission to deliver the best courses possible meant he had to set up his Elite to deliver the level of quality for courses he knew the market demanded.
His sense of understanding market needs in terms of required skills means Elite’s sole focus is on producing trainers that meet the demands of an ever changing industry. Along with his exceptional team of expert tutors, Sean delivers course to a standard where there is no comparison in the industry.
