Can’t believe I lost around 13-14 lbs myself and that was with two weeks out because of a work commitment – I know I can do it and get good results now!! My confidence has definitely being restored. So, Once again, thanks a million for everything. Looking forward to keeping up the momentum on my lifestyle changes. “

If desired, and by arrangement, the Programme participants may opt to be included in a weekly motivational email newsletter from the Coaches, recapping the topics discussed and providing electronic copies of the handouts provided.

Requirements to Aid Sessions

Nutritional Sessions: Access to drinking water to make smoothies or for participants during the session. Set up of power point presentation if necessary.
Fitness Coaching Sessions: a room suitable for up to 30 persons to participate in a fitness training session. This does not necessarily need to be a large room or a gym-designated space. A board room or class room style generally suits fine. The instructor can bring all necessary equipment on-site, including Pilate’s mats, Pilate’s accessories, and Boxercise pads and gloves if necessary. The instructor will need a power source and music player suitable for IPhone.
For the lifestyle discussions, a whiteboard and markers would be welcome.
Optional Personal Training Sessions By arrangement, the fitness coach may provide an additional group fitness session or individual personal training, for additional cost. In this case, access to an on-site gym or fitness room if available would be ideal. Otherwise personal training sessions can be held in a suitable room such as that described above for fitness coaching sessions.

Participant Duties

Participants will be weighed in using Tanita body composition measurement scales weekly, with the Nutritionist. It is recommended to be barefoot when being weighed to get accurate readings.  Attendance to a high degree is expected in both the nutrition and fitness sessions, as results are reflected by the amount of effort put in by each individual.

The above suggested Programme may be altered to accommodate the Company’s specific requests. Additional 1:1 nutrition and personal training consultations are available at an extra cost. Mary has attached a copy of her Nutritional Questionnaire which goes alongside her consultation.

"The enthusiasm of Mary & Kieran, the trainers, the quality of the course material they offered, the classes, the in depth analysis of our current positions and goal setting"
Lisa, Cork

"Mary had a really practical approach to the nutritional side of the programme recognizing that everyone has a busy life and can’t be good 100% of the time. I think I really learnt a lot about food and will be much more focused in the future on the nutritional value rather than just counting calories. I really feel that I can maintain this type of healthy lifestyle without too much effort"
John

"Kieran really pushed me out of my comfort zone. I had planned to do a 5km run before Christmas and ended up running a 4 mile race in the first week of November. He tailored my exercise program specifically for me and I will definitely be keeping up the circuit classes – I am a convert!"
Paul – Cork

"Mary, thanks a mil for all your help with making me healthy – I recently did a medical after doing your programme and I am still keeping my weight down and my cholesterol is at an all time low – this is definitely down to your advice and talks. I really want to say thanks for motivating and helping me to believe that I could change my diet and exercise even at my age."
Mike – Shift worker - Pharmaceutical Company – Cork
