The OriGym Team
Founded by Luke Hughes and Steph Roberts in 2015, OriGym is now one of the most reputable fitness education providers in Ireland.
Dissatisfied with the quality of the fitness education sector, Luke and Steph set out to completely redefine the way that training courses operate, using their own experience and expertise to do so. Fast-forward nearly a decade, and OriGym has certainly achieved that goal!
Luke has been a qualified personal trainer for 14 years and has worked in fitness education for 7 years. He holds a First Class Honours Bachelor and Masters in Sports Science from Swansea University and the University of Leeds respectively.
Steph has been involved in the fitness sector since she was 16 years old and has worked in fitness education for over a decade. She holds a First Class Degree in Strength and Conditioning with an academic distinction from Colorado University. Alongside this, she has also been involved in high-level professional sports as a strength and conditioning consultant and has experience launching and running her own gym.
Aside from our founders, the OriGym team is made up of only the most highly-qualified tutors who all have extensive experience as operating fitness professionals themselves. As well as teaching the courses themselves, they will be on-hand via email, chatbox or phone 7 days a week to help and support you every step of the way!
