Mark Ireland

Mark is an ex-professional Rugby player of 14 years, playing premiership rugby for the likes of London Irish before spending 4 years playing in ProD2 for Montauban and Dax. He recently retired after making a successful transition over to becoming a personal trainer, concentrating all his time and effort into passing on his knowledge accumulated in professional sport to clients.

WHY I LOVE MY JOB?

I love the challenge of training people of different abilities, seeing a bond develop between trainer and client, and the vast improvements made with commitment given. Being able to continue being in an active environment to a high level for a job after years of professional sport is great.

MY GREATEST MOTIVATION?

To keep evolving week by week, day by day, in a job that I love. Challenging myself to keep my sessions interesting and challenging for clients is a must for me! It keeps the excitement in sessions high for both myself and clients. Then the end product of seeing clients becoming fitter, faster, stronger is of course the biggest motivation.

HOBBIES AND INTERESTS?

All things sporting! I love to travel, read and listen to all kinds of music! Occasionally I dabble on the decks and spin some house music tunes!
