‘Work hard. Motivate. Educate.’
Two Cork gym owners used their own business ethos to build their brand into a national success story during the lockdown.
After a wildly successful sell-out first year in Cork and Galway, Elite Coaching College has now launched in Dublin’s state-of-the-art Planet Health Palmerstown, where sign-ups are already strong for September.
The fitness training college is the brainchild of local Cork business owners Josh Tannian and Leon Lynch, who founded Exceed Fitness Gym in Ballincollig in 2016.
With their primary business closed during the lockdown, the duo decided to use the time to add a long-planned second strand to their empire – a course designed to bring the highest quality Personal Training (PT) standard to the fitness industry.
With a combined industry experience of over 30 years, Josh and Leon used their own background in personal training to build one of the most comprehensive and thorough PT course available in Ireland today.
Renowned fitness educator Alan Murphy was enlisted to deliver the programme, with every module custom built to give students the tools and knowledge to create a long, successful career in fitness.
It was an instant hit; the college was launched in September 2020 and more than 100 students have already successfully completed the first courses, graduating as fully qualified PTs.
The qualifications on offer are globally recognised, opening up the opportunity for graduates to work anywhere in the world.
Josh and Leon even added a business development workshop and social media training to give students a firm grounding in how to open a business and market their services effectively – an exciting possibility for any budding fitness entrepreneur.
“We want to create the best coaches on the market today. A coach who not only provides client results, but a coach who cares, contributes and improves a client’s lifestyle,” says Josh.
“We want to empower our students with the skills to be the best coach they can be for themselves and their future clients and raise the standard of PTs within the fitness industry. We promise to give our students the skills they need to create the greatest opportunity for success.”
