My name is Andy Murphy and I have over 10 years experience working in the leisure industry. I hold an Honours Degree in Recreation and Sport Management from Waterford I.T and I am also an EHFA accredited instructor. I have competed up to international level in middle distance athletics at underage and university level. However, for the past number of years I have competed and continue to compete and challenge myself in mixed martial arts.
I love working on the gym floor and interacting with members but I am also passionate about teaching classes. Classes are a great way for people to challenge themselves whilst also meeting other members and having fun. What I have found since working in Kingfisher is that all class instructors are truly knowledgeable and passionate about the class that they teach. I personally really enjoy teaching Bootcamp, Boxercise and HIIT type classes.
I currently teach the Sunday morning Bootcamp which is a mixture of cardio, strength, core and flexibility work. I also try to include fun partner drills at different stages which enable the class to interact with one another and to have that element of fun whilst working up a sweat. Every exercise can be adapted so the class truly is suitable for all fitness levels.
