From the minute I walked in the doors of Lifestyle Studios and saw Kacper's smiling face behind the counter I knew I was in good hands. Despite the CrossFit gear staring at me (think tyres, ropes, med balls) and hard core top of the range equipment I never once felt intimidated or out of place. The vibe there is that of a family who actually care about their clients. The love, dedication, knowledge, training and support they give every single member is next to none. Only sign up if you want results because that's exactly what you'll get! I lost so many inches but gained so much more in confidence and a love for training that my day doesn't feel right unless I've lifted some weights! Injuries always held me back in the past but Kacper would assess how I was feeling and tailor each workout depending on that so that even now if I'm feeling a little niggle in my shoulders or back I can still easily walk into a gym knowing exactly what to do whereas before I always felt a bit akward wandering around the free weights and usually just ended up on the treadmill. Kacper took me under his wing and got me the results I wanted but did more than that, he totally inspired me and motivated me constantly. If I had a slip with nutrition he never scolded he would just encourage me to do better next time. I was given a tailor made nutrition plan and as part of my membership I had a choice of CrossFit classes, dance, Pilates, burlesque, lifting for women just to name a few :) I also did a few PT sessions where my butt was kicked for an hour. This was what changed my body the most. Kacper combines his knowledge of Pilates and CrossFit to come up with exciting, new, challenging workouts every single time. My fitness has improved, my butt has lifted and I'm on the way to getting some abs!! I never once felt bored or was watching the clock. I always feel amazing after each workout as Kacper comes over to high five me and Im in a ball of sweat on the ground :)
When you add up all the amazing factors about Lifestyle Studios; very reasonably priced, classes included, amazing equipment, first class trainers, CrossFit, dedicated, inspiring trainers and without a doubt no other gym in Cork comes close to them. Go take a look and I promise you won't be disappointed!
