I am going to change everything! I'm going to train harder, eat cleaner and look better..in the New Year.


Enacting positive change in your health, well-being, lifestyle, relationships, career, performance, body composition and happiness is essentially what the majority of us pine for in our lives. The varying degree to which we achieve these changes are based on a number of factors but here are some dominant themes that I have experienced that equal success. W...

"Feck it... it's nearly Christmas sure what's the point! There's too much going on..I'll get stuck back into it in the new year. "  I've heard this multiple times over the last week in different accents and tones. The logic is skewed and I'm going to give you a great gift and tell you a few simple ways to be less shite this Christmas!

If you want to start training at FFS in the New Year or you want to get a family or loved an FFS training gift for Christma...

Welcome to another addition of Be Less Shite.

Imagine there was a supplement that improved your health, performance and appearance at all levels. Now stretch your mind even further and imagine you can eat large quantities of this supplement and it has a very small calorific footprint. So...you can eat a lot of it and it makes you better at whatever...

If you are missing a leg you don't give out about your shoelaces being undone.  Agonising over the best pre-workout supplement when you haven't had a balanced meal or a decent night sleep in a few years is picking the wrong battle. Your time and energy will be in an inevitable no return cycle. Ultimately your results will all be heavily tipping towards the "shite" column. If you'd like to remove distractions and focus on the really important things in nutritio...

We are generally chronically tight in certain areas of our body, some of us have tighter spots than others based on genetics and lifestyle but I have never met an athlete who cannot benefit from “concentrated release techniques”. We at FFS Gyms and you have no interest in rolling about aimlessly on a foam roller for 20 mins. If you have been doing that, in the nicest way possible, you are doing it wrong! 

If you want to know how to use foam rolling to lift...

Tuesday the 3rd of July 2018 at FFS Gyms is the day I saw the biggest human being I've ever seen in my whole life.

His mass was so immense he filled the entire doorway of the entrance. He was huge and he was here to train at FFS. At 140 kgs and 6ft4. We had an NFL football star, who was 2nd in the draft in his year and held some combine records here in Leeson Street ready to train. For the coach and football fan in me, I was really excited to see what was about...

2 years ago I was in the queue for "refreshments" in the stands of the Solider field stadium in Chicago.  There was lots of jokes and dry wit about our chances of beating New Zealand that day. Ireland had never beaten New Zealand. Twenty-eight different Irish teams over a 111-year stretch attempted to down the All Blacks without success. 


A funny thing happened in that queue. I heard a shout from behind " CRAAAIIIIGGGG" I turned around...
