ABOUT ANDY KENNY FITNESS

ANDY'S STORY

  • Andy's Weight Loss
  • Cycling Perth to Sydney solo

I’m from Dublin and unlike most other trainers I wasn’t always in good shape and was very overweight in my late teens and early 20’s. So overweight and unfit in fact, that on a hot day walking down the street, a woman felt it necessary to stop her car and offer me a lift!

 

I went from gladly taking her up on her kind offer of help, to getting fit, becoming a personal trainer and then cycling 4400km across Australia unassisted and in just 42 days. Between 2003 & 2004 I sought the help of a personal trainer and through hard work, determination and following a good exercise and healthy eating regime I perfected over the year, I lost over 5 stone (32kg).

So no matter how unfit a client is or thinks they are, they can’t have been as bad as I once was.  So if I can do all that, I can certainly help and motivate you to reach your goals, no matter what they are.  

 

I started out training clients in a tiny room in 2006, expanding to my own studio in 2011 and expanded again in 2013 to our current large gym in Grand Canal Dock.  I’ve built a great team around me and we now have Irelands 2nd largest class timetable.  I’ve plans to grow even further in 2018, to a bigger premises and currently work in London 1 day a week.  When I was so unfit that walking was a struggle, who’d have believed this was possible?

 

I think it’s only fair that if I know a clients weight, body fat % etc that they know mine, click here to find out what I weigh.

In April and May 2009 I cycled alone, 4363km from Perth to Sydney (www.pedalpowered.ie). The training I did beforehand and 6 weeks of 10-12 hours a day cycling, taught me many valuable and unique things about exercising in extreme conditions that I wouldn’t have learned otherwise.

 

I was inspired to take on this challenge after meeting a cyclist in Australia in 2003 who was cycling from Perth to Sydney. At the time I was obese and found stairs a challenge so such a huge undertaking seemed impossible to me but when I lost the weight and got fit I decided to take on this mammoth challenge. If I’d have been told ten years ago that I’d be a Personal Trainer and had cycled alone & unaided across Australia, I wouldn’t have believed it for a second. I know now almost anything in life can be achieved given enough determination and time.

 

Since 2008 I’ve been involved with fundraising for the Burren Chernobyl Project, a small charity set up in 1993 to help the victims of the Chernobyl Nuclear Reactor explosion.
