The Gym Advisors

Have a listen to our insightful conversations with some of the most interesting people from inside and outside the fitness industry.

#02 Alan Devane

Andy is joined by Alan Devane, a Personal Trainer, Online Coach, GAA Strength and Conditioning Coach and an allround good guy.

We talk about how hard a worker Alan is in both his personal and professional life, and we touch on topics such as why a PT would need a coach of their own, the importance of mindset when trying to lose weight, and how you can make the most of the next 3 weeks before Christmas to make sure you're not going from a standing start in January.

Alan rants about the negatives of program hopping while we chat about the Netflix documentary Gamechangers, and we tackle the age-old belief that women shouldn't lift weights for fear of gaining too much muscle.

As always, we get Alan's recommendations for his favourite Book, Podcast and Movie.

#01 Jessica Keniston

Andy is joined by Jessica Keniston to tell us how she went from growing up in America to owning a Fitness Studio in Co. Galway, having fallen out of love with fitness in her early 20s.

Jessica also tells how she is using her knowledge of ballet to help talented Irish Dancers and why exercise during pregnancy is so important.

Andy and Jessica then challenge the cliche that you should "Never Miss a Monday" to see if it holds up under scrutiny, before Jessica gets to rant about the need for consistency rather than an "All or Nothing" approach to Fitness.

We finish with Jessica's recommendations for her favourite Book, Podcast and Movie.
