Alison O Leary

Hi, I’m Alison one of the female trainers here in PureGym Derry.

I am a fully qualified Level 3 with the ability to work with all types of people. I originally started my own fitness journey approximately seven years ago

With my new found love I decided to retrain as a Personal Trainer so I could help other women who face the same struggles that I have to overcome their own issues. Over the last two years, I've helped a considerable number of women and men lose weight, tone up and more importantly build overall body confidence; which is what makes this job so enjoyable. Since losing my own weight I've competed in various bodybuilding competitions.

My time competing has taught me so much about the human body, show prep, muscle gain, body-fat reduction, and how discipline and dedication to working hard can and will pay off. I’m a busy mum to seven young kids, twins and all so no excuses. If a Personal Trainer is something you may be interested in, then get in contact with me. Or approach me on the gym floor, I'm always happy for a chat.

With a training plan specifically tailored to your goals, a detailed nutrition plan and the right level of support, you’ll find yourself fitter, stronger, healthier and looking amazing in no time.
