ALAN DOWNEY

Fitness Trainer

Biography:

Born in Monasterboice (say that 3 times fast), Alan hails from Louth, Ireland and spent his whole life in his “local parish” before crossing the Atlantic. An all-around athlete, Alan competed in many sports, but Gaelic Football is the game that pulls on his heartstrings. He currently likes going on hikes, running and the occasional golf game. But don’t forget this man really appreciates a good workout! While going on a run, Alan will have rock bands such as U2 and Oasis in his earbuds. We just wouldn’t try to keep up to his pace!

Make sure you say hello to Alan on the training floor, but listen closely to the lingo and look for that Irish smile though… he might be pulling a fast one on you!
