Roisin O’Byrne

Background: About 5 years ago, I started doing classes at JF Fitness, a gym my boyfriend set up. Initially I was only doing them to support him but it turned out to be a huge turning point in my life. I started to look after myself both physically and mentally. I then decided to do the Gym Instructor course and I’ve never looked back. I’ve since set up my own Fitness Instagram Page @thebyrnebible to share my journey and also healthy lifestyle/fitness tips along the way.

Interests: Gym, golf, running, walking and recently back at camogie.

Why you’re supporting the Pieta Wren Run: I myself have struggled a lot with my mental health, I still do. That’s why I see the importance to not only raise much needed funds for a great charity that helps so many cope when they are struggling but also the actual event itself and the training before it. It gives us all a focus and something to look forward to. From my own experience I know that an hour out in the fresh air can help you forgot about almost anything and that’s why I’m so delighted to be involved the Wren Run again this year.

Top wellness tip: A happy and healthy mind and body is a lot more important than toned abs.

Background: I grew up playing numerous different sports. I still play GAA, camogie more specifically, and I am a keen gym goer. I have a BA in psychology and french from NUIG. My love for exercise and passion for helping people led me to become a qualified personal trainer and sports nutritionist and with my own online business and by working in a gym I am able to do what I love everyday!

Interests: Exercise – GAA, the gym, sea swims; Music – songwriting, playing piano, music production.

Why you’re supporting the Pieta Wren Run: Pieta is an amazing organisation and I’m delighted to use my platform to help. I spread as much positivity through exercise as I can on social media and am delighted to add the Pieta Wren Run into what I do daily!

Tips: 1. Every little bit you do each day adds up and don’t compare your Chapter 2 to someone else’s Chapter 20. Everyone starts somewhere and has their own way and pace at which they do things. 2. Start each day by writing down 3 things you’re grateful for, no matter how small they may be. Focusing on the positive things in your life from the get go has a huge positive impact on your day!
