I’ve recently become a member at FIT 100, the new high performance gym on the Ballysimon Road. Owner, head trainer and Physiotherapist at FIT 100 Colm Moran believes that data is the key to help you get the most out of your health and fitness. Colm believes in looking at the human body and mind, and it’s habits, as a whole and that one must focus, fuel, train and recover to optimise results. Everything FIT 100 do, every decision, every programme, every piece of advice, is based off data. With this data they can quantify, and show you, your strengths & weaknesses and thus design a training and nutrition programme specifically for you. This allows you to compete against yourself. However data is not the only thing Colm and the team at FIT 100 believe in. A sense of community, togetherness & belonging, a team effort, is at our core because a journey shared is more enjoyable and one that you are more likely to succeed at. Over the last three years FIT 100 has grown tremendously. The majority of its members are members of the general public, but olympic athletes and intercounty teams also train at FIT 100 including current All Ireland Finalists, the Limerick Senior Hurling team. FIT 100 offer Strength and Conditioning classes and programmes for kids & adults, physiotherapy, nutritional/functional assessments & programmes, coffee & food by Country Munch. I’m going to sign up for the FIT 100 data driven programme and report back to you the readers on how I’m finding it and update you on my progress. I’m really impressed with the gym as it has more of an olympic performance centre feel is is more homely and family friendly than most gyms I’ve been to. Be sure to check out the new facility on the Ballysimon road for yourself and follow @fit100hq on Twitter and Instagram to get the virtual tour before you see it in person.
