Find out what they said about Aspire...
"After a tough season I felt I needed a new structured approach to improve my game and push my strength and fitness to the next level. I have been training at Aspire for the past 9 months and have found a massive improvement in my strength, speed and agility on the court. All the exercises and drills are tough and challenging, Joe really pushes you out of your comfort-zone but the benefits of his specifically designed training plan and through his expert knowledge and enthusiasm have helped me to achieve and surpass my goals. The strength I had developed also allowed me recover from injury quicker and through Joe altering my training sessions I was able to compete at international level after a few weeks."
-Maria Daly, Kerry County Handball Player
"While attending ASPIRE I have reached most of my goals, from qualifying for the European Championships to breaking personal bests and Irish records. I find the sessions intense but with the help and motivation I get from Joe I also find them enjoyable and rewarding."
-Lorraine Regan, Paralympic Athlete
"I just want to say a huge thanks to you all for a brilliant day of fun and challenges both physical and mental. We all thoroughly enjoyed it and will recommend to all clubs in Fermanagh. Maybe if we are successful in the championship we will come to ye again later in the year. I would just like to compliment all your staff on the way they ran the day, they were excellent in what they did with us. Cool, courteous, calm and collected to say the least"
-Paula Cunningham, Fermanagh Ladies Football
"Just a quick thank you from all the players and management from Cloughbawn GAA Club who attended Aspire this weekend. Everyone found it great fun but hard work as well, highly recommended."
"It was the camp I have ever been on as it was sports specific. Every thing was top class from the accommodation, food and gym to the outdoor pitch for training and teambuilding exercises. The programme that you ASPIRE put us through I'm sure will stand us in good stead as we face into the league and championship campaigns of 2009."
-Brendan Cummins, Tipperary Senior Hurling Goalkeeper.
"After a long term injury and numerous failed attempts at a comeback Joe and Cian in Aspire provided me with the expert advice and coaching to get back into full team training and competitive games. The facilities in Aspire are excellent and the training programmes provided were both challenging and enjoyable. This time last year I had almost given up any hope of playing football again but thanks to all in Aspire I am now looking forward to the new competitive season "
-John Higgins, Personal Training Client
"I would like to thank all the staff in Aspire for providing us with a great 'team-building' day in Clara recently.The feedback from our players was really positive and I know they enjoyed the day very much.The facilities available and the TEAM-centred exercises were first class. The exercises/tasks challenged the guys and got them out of their 'comfort-zone' which was the main reason we chose ASPIRE in the first place. ASPIRE would be top of our list for any future training or team-building camps."
We wish ASPIRE continued success in the future and look forward to returning to see what new challenges you might have for us."
-Tommy Dunne - Tipperary Minor Hurling Coach 2007-2008
"I wanted to push myself to the next level to help me succeed and advance my Squash game, especially my fitness. Having worked with Joe and Cian for the past 9 months I have found their enthusiasm, commitment and determination something of a rare kind! The guys designed a programme suited to my needs as a Squash player and have helped me surpass my goals and expectations. I can now get to the ball quicker, faster and win out those gruelling long rallies. Now it's me who is the winner on court!
In any walk of life, I believe these components topped with resilience are the equation to total success. I would highly recommend Aspire to anyone who wants real results!"
-Eamonn Reilly - Personal Training Client
"The Personal training with Joe and Cian at Aspire helped me to achieve what to me was a very daunting challenge from doing little or no exercise to completing the 3 peak challenge in 24hours. At Aspire they first of all took care of some weaknesses I had from old injuries and also brought my fitness up to levels I had not seen before. Surprisingly the whole process although hard at times was very enjoyable and made worthwhile with the visible results of losing weight and really toning up as well as feeling better and having more energy. I am now in the habit of regular exercise and looking forward to climbing even more mountains. Bring it on!!!"
