Meet Aisling – for a lot of you, a familiar face. Aisling was Ireland’s first ever MMA world champion and our first and only female UFC fighter. She made her professional MMA debut in 2007 at the age of just 19 and retired earlier this year, but has amassed years of coaching experience with full-time and recreational athletes in the field of MMA.
She’s also dedicated to improving the safety within MMA – Aisling is the founder of Safe MMA Ireland, the organisation responsible for athlete safety within MMA and an Athlete Ambassador for IMMAF, the International Amateur MMA governing body.
Aisling is Ireland’s first and only female black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – a functional martial art where grade is based on performance in competition, personal skill and coaching ability – a ranking achieved after 14 years of training in the sport. In short: Aisling’s not someone to mess with!
Aisling qualified as a personal trainer in 2014 and is dedicated to helping people achieve their fitness and health goals, with an emphasis on strength and functional movement. She’s also an experienced speaker, having spoken on a number of guest panels on the topics of training, fitness, mental health and brain injury.
Training, for Aisling, is about more than achieving aesthetic goals – although they’re a nice bonus. It’s about improving clients’ health and fitness and showing them what can be achieved with consistency, dedication and determination.
