Working on Wexford’s Fitness for 25 Years
I’ve known Olly Gogarty for at least the 25 years that he’s been offering fitness training in Wexford both in the Talbot Hotel Gym and under his own steam at Olly Gogarty Fitness.
When I asked Olly just what sets his offering apart from the many fitness classes/personal training options out there he was quick to inform me about just how all inclusive his approach is. Olly specializes in tailoring exercise programs of his designing to individuals’ strengths or indeed their possible limitations. With this in mind his first task is always to establish the individual’s health status as a starting point. “Everybody can be facilitated to some extent” says Olly “My mission is to empower you to become as fit as your potential allows by designing programmes that are effective, enjoyable and specific to you”. Currently Olly is working with clients suffering from MS, Spina Bifida, COPD, Depression and with clients suffering from and in remission from Cancer. His approach is to facilitate people’s journey to better fitness and the improved vitality that comes with it no matter what individual challenges they need to surmount. read more →
From a nutritional perspective, the first focus should always be on functional nutrition. This means eating correctly to maintain overall health, supporting the immune system and preventing injury. The second focus should be on performance nutrition. This is where specific fuelling for the exercise is taken into consideration, plus recovery and hydration plan.
Eat enough calories
The first priority in any training plan should be to eat enough calories. The only exception to this is where weight loss is a goal. It makes sense, especially during endurance training that more calories will be burned, therefore additional calories must be consumed. This is vital to maintain a positive energy balance. Not getting enough calories can lead to poor quality training, poor recovery, fatigue, weight loss and suppressed immune system to mention a few. Additional calories from healthy fats or carbohydrates could include; oily fish, avocado, mixed nuts and seeds, coconut oil, quinoa, rice, brown basmati rice, sweet potatoes, whole fruit etc.
