Here is a copy of Danny’s email. I asked Danny to write an article about how he has changed his life around in the last 6 months. Danny is a prime example of what dedication and determination can get you. Have a read……
My name is Danny Foran. Im a Personal Trainer and Lifestyle Coach at Access Fitness Dublin. My job is the most rewarding thing in the world, and not a day goes by where it ever feels like work. But I wasnt always like this. In fact just one year ago I was working in a financial services. I used to dread going to work on Mondays. When I was at my desk doing monotonous paper work, I would actually be thinking on hitting the gym later that day, and would get excited for training when in reality I should have been focusing on my targets. Oops!
In college, I studied business and marketing, which I really enjoyed, and I managed to combine my passion for health and fitness, with business and marketing, and complete a thesis on the Irish Fitness Industry in my final year. Little did I know, that just a few years later I would be working in the industry and feel blessed wit the opportunity I was about to be given. One morning on the Dart I was googling gyms, and wanted to undertake a personal transformation. I knew a bit about training, but I had never quite reached where I knew I could be with a little help. Thats when I enquired to the ABS Gym. I received an e-mail from Jay inviting me in for a consultation. When I went in later that week, I was blown away by the knowledge Jay had, and in just a few weeks I had achieved more results wise than I did in all my years of training in commercial gyms. It got me thinking. Imagine what it would be like to work at something like this.
I enquired about courses, and after a phone call with LIA, I decided that they would be my training provider as they had a great reputation with some great tutors, and for the first time in my life I said ‘why not’, and handed my notice in to my job in one of Irelands biggest banks, and set off to become a personal trainer. As I studied more, and achieved more results from Jays guidance, Jay and I decided that entering a physique show to test myself further would be a great challenge. I am now in my final stages of preparation for the NIFMA Worlds this November.
Upon graduating I was then put in contact with Access Fitness where I work now, and having met the team, I found a great bunch of guys with similar beliefs to me. We all work as part of a team and try to help one another. The atmosphere in the gym is amazing, and I often say to myself how lucky things have planned out. Its a blessing to work at something you enjoy so much,and an even bigger blessing to have great people around you with similar beleifs such as Jay and the guys at Access Fitness. Its amazing how your life can turn around for the better.
