    Biography
    Eilis’s passion for fitness came from a strong back ground in athletics. She has a proud sporting background as her father and uncle were international athletes, competing in World cross-country and Olympic finials. Growing up with fitness all her life made her realise that it is better to be consistently active and to make it a lifestyle choice rather than a quick fix solution always playing catch up! Her wish is to make people understand how rewarding and beneficial an active lifestyle is both mentally and physically for everyone. And also that maintaining this is not difficult once the correct principals are in place. After all your body is the only place you have to live in for the rest of your life so why not make it a healthy, happy and functional one.
