It’s Not About Me, It’s About You.

Yes I have played sport my whole life and lifted weights for over ten years now. However I have made countless mistakes during those times which as lead me on an endless search to figure out the science behind training and nutrition. The journey has lead me to America, Australia, the UK and even a bed in the sports surgery clinic in Santry.

What I have learnt more than anything along the way so far is the importance of understanding the science of human performance. You see we will lie to ourselves constantly and have biases and opinions based off our personal experiences. Sometimes we tell ourselves we are failures when we are not and sometimes we tell ourselves we are content when we are not. Thankfully the science has no agenda, no opinion and no perceived idea of the result. It is just what we know at this point in time.

I have won All- Ireland medals in Athletics and National Intervarsity titles in Boxing. This showed me the dedication required to achieve great goals against pretty tough odds. However I have lost more than I have won, being frustrated more than I have being over joyed and suffered the pain of chronic injury on more than one occasion. The road has been bumpy and uneven but I firmly believe I have made all these mistakes so you don’t have too.
