Hi and welcome. I am Alannah……..I’m a mum, a business owner and the founder of FitBod.ie, I am a Health and Wellness Coach, Pilates Teacher & Trainee Psychotherapist with a love for healthy living,  healthy eating, the outdoors and adventure.

I combine fitness with my love for the outdoors, I went from Triathlons to  Adventure racing in Australia, Scotland then Ireland, I now help others find their passion through exercise and living well. I combine the health of the body with the health of the mind, bringing both elements of the body together in my Psychotherapy work.

Positive Mental Fitness, Positive Mental Health or mental fitness is the connection between body movement and the mind. Movement helps the mind find clarity, helps to recover after times of grief or loss and helps the body to deal with stress and anxiety. Movement improves mental focus and clarity, offers emotional strength and personal wellbeing. Fit Body Fit Mind.

Why Pilates?…..Because it works, and is great when combined with physical fitness and exercise, Pilates is strength and flexibility with control. It is important for the mobility and flexibility and wellbeing of the body and clears the mind. We live in a fast, stressful world, there needs to be a time in the day when we stop, breath, look around, and be present.
