Who is Alannah FitBod
I’m a mum, a Therapist, and a Health and Wellness Body and Mind Coach. With 12 years experience working in health and competing in races around the world.
Having always been into fitness I started FitBod 11 years ago teaching Fitness, Personal Training and Pilates to clients from all walks of life.
‘I am a Health and Wellness Coach, Pilates Teacher & Trainee Counsellor/Psychotherapist with a love for healthy living, sea swimming, healthy eating, the outdoors and adventure. I believe movement and nature can help us heal our deepest wounds.’
FitBod.ie was set up in 2007, after returning home from living in Australia for ten years. I combine fitness with my love for the outdoors, I went from Triathlons to Adventure racing in Australia, Scotland and Ireland, I now help others through counselling, coaching, meditation techniques, exercise and techniques to living well. I combine my work with clients offering tools to support the health of the body with the health of the mind.
From my work as a Fitness Coach and Personal Trainer, I realised there was so much more to fitness, movement, and mindfulness when it comes to grief, it allows us space to heal, grieve, find hope and grow. I wanted to offer this to my clients, everyone has suffered loss and grief in their lives, and I have found through my own experience of loss and trauma, having lost my parents and a baby, that the power of movement, breath, strength, and wellness in the body allows us space to heal.
I have a Diploma in Counselling and Psychotherapy. I’m a qualified Exercise Health and Personal Training Coach, I’m Certified in Mindfulness (using mindfulness-based approaches and third wave interventions), Sports Psychology, Pre and Post Natal Fitness, TRX, Stability Ball, Pilates and Pre and Post Natal Pilates.
One of my favourite races in the West of Ireland. Gaelforce West Adventure Race in 2009 – 65kms, Mountain Run, Cycle and Kayak.
