Hailing from County Mayo on the west coast of Ireland, Laurey Corcoran grew up excelling in Gaelic Football, gymnastics and sprinting. She accumulated several trophies and awards throughout her sports career. This naturally translated into Laurey doing fitness and bodybuilding shows… and for her to excel in the gym. Laurey is a natural team player, and we’re happy to have her at Rep1! Now that she’s in BC, Laurey enjoys exploring our province and going open-water swimming, cycling, hiking, and snowboarding. She’s also a fan of nightlife and can be usually found ripping it up on the dance floor. At Rep1, if she’s not working, you can find her lifting some serious weights in the squat rack.

Toys? No, we didn’t have toys growing up in Ireland. We were too busy cleaning canals, moving cattle from one field to another, turning turf in the bog, herding sheep, jumping on bails of hay and then of course we had band practice to attend in the evenings with the neighbours.
