“When you’re comfortable in your own skin, it does have an effect on your esteem and confidence” admits Kevin Russell. Russell is an online personal trainer, advocate of a healthy lifestyle and a Masters student at NUI Galway. He offers nutritional advice, workout plans and is a fitness enthusiast but he suffered from mental health issues when he was younger. So now, when he sees his clients’ results and the changes in them, it comes with a great deal of pride. “To be honest, that’s what I love most about it. They are so happy with how they’ve progressed physically but it’s a mental thing as well.”

At the start of September, I continued my studies and I’m now doing a Masters in Journalism. The course is good, I’m finding it really interesting and I knew journalists wrote a lot but yeesh… I didn’t know that they wrote this much. I literally spend most of my evenings sitting at the desk, staring into a computer screen which is starting to look more and more like the Matrix every time.
Having a personal trainer is becoming a fashionable thing at the minute. Everywhere I turn, somebody is advertising six pack shortcuts, competition preps, macro calculations and workout plans.

The fitness industry is riding a huge wave across the globe with more and more people looking to become advocates of a healthy lifestyle.
