Kinga Cieslak:

I started working in Felda in March 2015 having previously been a member. I have been interested in sport since an early age. First, I practiced acrobatics, later athletics, taking part in marathons. I took my hobby from home because my mother was a successful athlete. I decided to link my hobby with work. I am very satisfied with the results of my clients (training under my supervision) in my classes (spin and bodypump). I know that I am fulfilling what I do because I always have full attendance at my classes. Sport is very important to me and I hope that I will be able to work as long as possible in my profession.

Maurice McMahon:

I have been working in Felda since we opened in October 2005, having previously worked in Peak Physique. My hobbies include running, gym, reading. I played all sports growing up and competed competitively in both football and running. I run for the North East Runners and have represented Ireland at both World and European Masters Championships. My highlight was the 2109 European Masters Championships in Italy where I won Gold in the M45 Cross Country, Silver in the M45 5000m on the track along with a team Bronze in the Cross Country. I love my profession as you get to meet so many wonderful people and get to help guide them to a better lifestyle. Also, there is never ending learning as the industry keeps advancing. I love working in Felda, as a team we get on so well and most of us have been working together from the very start.

Philip Neary:

I have been working in Felda since July 2017. My hobbies include weight lifting (body building), basketball, and having fun days out with my 2 girls. When I was at school I competed in the 100m, 200m, Long Jump, High Jump and Relay. Weight training has been my main hobby since I was 22, although I bought my first weight training book at the age of 14 and instantly had a fascination for it. It was my love for weight training that led me to becoming an instructor. I love being a gym instructor most because it’s a lovely feeling to see people improve their body and mind on a weekly basis, knowing that I had a role to play in that.
