Increase Muscular Strength
If strength gains are your goal then sign up to Core-Fitness Personal Training now. We will show you how to illicit great strength gains using the progressive overload principle and good quality technique. Far too often we see individuals trying to push as much weight as they can but with bad form. We will show you how to focus on using specific muscle groups when lifting the weight and explain how time under tension and training volume are much more important when muscular strength gains are concerned.

I was fortunate to find Stevie after a long time of searching around for a
personal trainer. As a pretty driven individual who is not great at being
being told what to do, I’ll admit I was somewhat sceptical entering into my
first bunch of training sessions but Stevie’s infectious energy, technical
expertise and motivational techniques have helped shift my mindset on
physical fitness to a whole different level.
He is the consummate professional and an excellent coach. He goes over and
beyond the actual sessions with continual encouragement and genuine interest
and delivers just the right balance of hard work, results and good craic to
make you want to come back for more.
It’s not easy in any profession to execute well time and time again but
he’s mastered it… I wouldn’t think twice about recommending any service he
I started going to Stevie’s classes last year to try and lose some weight for my brothers wedding. I went to his spin classes twice a week and for someone who is overweight and usually avoided exercise like the plague, it was tough work! There was a lot of sweat, vomit and tears. Stevie has a way of making the classes enjoyable. He changes it up every week so that the workout never becomes boring and predictable.
Then I got a bit of a taste for exercise, recognising how good it made me feel. I was less lethargic and I noticed I had a lot more energy. This made me decide to start going to his bootcamp classes. These classes were very different for me as it involved a lot of core work and strength gaining exercises, which I had never done before. These classes are really fun and full of friendly craic and banter. Stevie mixes them up too so we’re always doing something a bit different each week.
Classes include a mix of core workouts, strength building exercises including squats and lunges with weights and kettle bells etc. Team cardio work such as boxing, friendly competitive tug of war, shuttle races and penalty shootouts are included too.Something happened to me that had never happened before, I enjoyed working out! I was no longer going to classes because I felt I had to, I was going because I wanted to and because I enjoyed it.
Another first for me since I started going to Stevie’s bootcamp classes is that I started to notice a change in my body shape, for the better. I can see muscles now that I never even knew existed. My body is toning up! Noticing these changes is really motivating and as someone who has always had low self esteem and no self confidence, I’m starting to feel good about myself. I’ve still a long way to go with my weight loss and fitness journey, but for now I feel stronger than ever and I my endurance levels keep improving.
Stevie is great at encouraging me to push myself further every time. He is also great at giving nutritional advice. My next step, as well as continuing my fitness routine, is to better my diet. I am assured that Stevie will be there to give me great advice and clean eating diet plans. As he says, this will help me “Achieve double the results in half the time”.
Stevie has done the impossible for me, he has made me want to exercise and get fit. He is a great personal trainer, encouraging me along my fitness journey while maintaining a very friendly demeanor that never comes across overbearing or intimidating.
If you’re looking to get fit and loose weight, as well as have fun in high intensity, worthwhile classes that are suitable for people of all ages, sizes and fitness levels, then Stevie Allen’s core fitness is for you!
The dress was bought and the date was set, the only thing I really needed was to fight the bingo wings and get wedding beach body ready – no mean feat…the man up for the challenge – Stevie.
I have to say I was more than a little sceptical about how much a spin class would help, I honestly thought it can’t be that hard it’s only cycling – oh how wrong I was… On the first night I nearly fell off my bike and then when it was over my legs buckled walking out the door and down the step… Stevie promised the first class was the hardest so I tried another and he was right… It was still a challenge but this time I stayed on the bike at least.
Within a few classes people started to notice and comment that I was losing weight – I couldn’t believe it, it was so fast…the lovely comments spurred me on to continue and Stevie’s motivation and commitment are positively infectious. There is always a giggle to be had which makes classes and working out less of a chore.
I was beginning to enjoy spin class – no one was more surprised than me…with the wedding a few weeks away, and with Stevie’s encouragement I decided to push myself a bit more. I ventured into the world of circuits/ bootcamp. The first night I couldn’t lift a 4kg kettle bell above my head, I honestly struggled. But with Stevie’s help and belief when I wanted to give up I’m now able to lift between 6-8kg. It might not seem that much but it’s a huge personal achievement for me. The wedding in February was my ultimate motivation but something changed for me and I’m now at two classes a week religiously. I’m really looking forward to all the new classes and challenges to be had in the new Core Fit Studios.
