Personal Training equals results

When we opened our doors over a decade ago, the fitness industry was booming but in a bad place. Gyms seemed to have become all about bright lights and music, machines and merchandise, posing and power shakes. And the worst thing about it was that members were taking second place. People joined, got bored or intimidated, left, and never went back. It wasnt for us. So, there was only one thing to do: set about completely turning the fitness business model on its head.


We dont use the term world-class lightly, but when describing our expert and experienced trainers, its justified. Not only are they up-to-speed with the latest science, but theyre passionate about building our fun and un-intimidating culture. And because we dont use freelancers, and our permanent personal trainers stay for the long-term, you get the consistent care and support you need.

Personal Space

Your general health and wellbeing are as important to us as your physical fitness. And giving you ample space in which to train is part of our commitment to maintaining safe gym environments. In every one of your personal training sessions, you’ll have a minimum of 150 sq ft to yourself. Think of it as your gym within a gym.

Why Small-Group Personal Training Works

It’s a scientifically based method that we pioneered, and it’s at the
heart of everything we do. The idea of a one-to-one relationship might seem good, but too often, the momentum fizzles out. With a small group of no more than six, you get the same level of attention but with a fun and inspiring group dynamic. It’s feeding off other like-minded members that spurs you on and on. It’s also a more flexible and less expensive option, allowing you to make the most of the other parts of your gym membership like our classes. At Functional Fitness, personal training isn’t an alternative to gym membership and group training; it’s all wrapped up together in one effective results-driven package.

Small Group Personal Training

Our progressive Small-group Personal Training guarantees results
How can it be personal training, if it’s not one-to-one? Well, we’d all agree that individual coaching gives you the tailored approach and personal attention to help you achieve results faster and in a safer way. But what if you could get the same high-quality coaching and the same focus with the added motivation of a fun class dynamic? Small-group Personal Training is the best of both worlds. And that’s why our core programme is centred around it and every success story is built on it.

Scientifically and practically proven

This is no new fad. We’ve been developing the small-group training method for many years. In fact, we were the first gym in the Ireland to adopt this innovative approach, and we’ve seen it working every day. Our gym is set up for it. Our team are trained for it. And it’s what we’re known for. If you still have doubts, then come and experience it for yourself. You’ll soon get why it’s the win-win approach.
Small means small; no groups are larger than six. This way you get the buzz and encouragement of working towards your goals with like-minded members, but your coach is still able to keep tabs on each of you as you train. And everyone starts with a one-to-one evaluation, and each programme is tailored to specific goals and is reviewed regularly.

The long-term solution

Small-group personal training is the sustainable option. To begin with, it’s more cost-effective than one-to-one personal training. Plus, because we run sessions every hour, you’re more likely to find a slot that works for you. All of this adds up to a training regime that you’re more likely to stick at. And that can only be a good thing.
