Personal Training

Have you ever arrived at the gym and not known where to begin with your workout? Are you looking to get in shape for a big occasion? Are you looking at increasing your training intensity for a sporting event? Do you want to train with a partner/ friend for a specific goal?

If you answered yes to any of the above questions then Personal training will be an ideal solution for you!

By training with our trainers, they will get you where you want to be offering full professional support, advice and of course some intense training!

Your first session with a  Dublin YMCA personal trainer will always consist of fitness tests followed by a discussion of your goals and what you hope to get out of personal training. At each follow-up session, your trainer will have a workout plan designed and a follow on a plan for areas you will need to work on to achieve your goals!
