Rob Hession

Crossfit, Powerlifting

Age: 25

Background: My interest in fitness and exercise started from playing hurling at a young age. But unfortunately, due to a torn ACL I was forced to give up hurling and concentrate on rehabilitation and gym work. During this time, I found Crossfit. My interest in its constantly varied, functional movements and the idea of a new challenge made me decide to add Crossfit to my weekly routine. After a number of weeks, I could see that Crossfit had already increased my strength, mobility and my overall fitness. I eventually fell in love with the sport of Crossfit and decided to pursue my Level 1 Crossfit Coaching Certificate. To date, I have taken part at European and National level, as well as competing in Powerlifting and full power events.


Angela Lucia

Crossfit, Powerlifting

Background: From an early age, sport has been a major part of my life. I have been on Irish squads and have competed nationally and internationally, both in tae kwon-do and swimming and have obtained my black belt in tae kwon-do. Due to a back injury caused by a car crash in 2011 I was forced to retire from competitive swimming and focus on rehabilitation work for a number of years. When I felt my injury had subsided I decided I wanted to get back into competing in a sport and that is when I came across crossfit. What appealed to me in crossfit was the constantly varied workouts, the new challenges every week and the community within it. In turn, I have grown a love for powerlifting and to date, I have competed at varsity level as well as competing at national and club level in crossfit.

Sponsored athlete and staff member 

Age: 23 

  • International Commerce French Graduate, Working in Finance

  • Profi Certified Gym Instructor

  • RIBBF Competitor

  • Fitness Extravaganza 2016 Bikini First Timer Champion

  • Top 10 Finish RIBBF Nationals 2016

 

Background: I never had a talent for or a particular interest in sports growing up. I did athletics and swimming in my teens to keep fit. I started weightlifting when I was 19, learning as much as I could about training and nutrition by myself and making great progress. I got myself a coach in 2015, and prepped for my first competition less than a year later.

I train because I love it. I like a challenge, I like to see how far I can push my body and training is an outlet for me - it can be a great stress release.


Jake Walsh

Having competed in judo for over 18 years, I have first-hand experience in high performance competition and all the nutritional demands that places on any athlete, particularly those in weight categorised sports. I won my first national title aged 11, and went on to represent my country in the following years. Since beginning as a student in NUIG I have also won intervarsity titles. During my youth in Tipperary, I also played rugby and gaelic football. I won a county football medal with my school.

IDFPF Competitor

Age: 18

  • Studying for a bachelors degree in sports strength and conditioning

  • IDFPF National Competitor

  • Certificate in Community Health

  • ITEC Certified Gym Instructor

  • ITEC Certified in Massage and Complementary Therapies

  • Providing Online Coaching Services

  • Former rugby player of 7 years for NUIG Youth Academy

I come from an extremely active background with experience in dozens of sports. I loved playing rugby especially as I got to utilize the strength I naturally possessed, but after being hospitalised for a serious injury I decided to take a step back from rugby and focus my athletic efforts on powerlifting and developing my strength that way. I want to apply my studies to the coaching and improvement in performance for serious athletes in rugby so after I complete my bachelors degree I will pursue a masters so I am best able to do so. I will also use this as an opportunity to learn about the best ways I can train and perform, while over the course of the academic year I will be training and competing with 2018 holding the beginning of my internationally competitive journey.
