Toxic company and toxic habits are what lead to Eoin walking through our doors on a wet winter night four years ago. Despite being a successful athlete when younger, studying at a prestigious university and being an active participant in student life – even being elected as Vice President of Queen’s University Students’ Union, Eoin had felt his physical and mental health eroding, and his self confidence with it. In the time that has elapsed, with a holistic programme of consistent coaching at HENCH he has completely transformed his training, nutrition, lifestyle and recovery habits – firstly laying a foundation of vibrant health, and then going on to develop elite level real world strength and fitness resulting in him becoming the leanest, healthiest, strongest and most athletic he’s been in his life. Eoin’s Progress Metrics: – Over 15kg of body fat lost, and 10kg of lean muscle gained! – Double Bodyweight Raw (Beltless, Barefoot) Squats for reps! – 23 X Bodyweight Chin-Ups! – Double Body Weight Farmer’s Walks! – 150% Bodyweight Bench Press for reps! The metrics are mind blowing and truly world class, but don’t even tell half the story. Eoin is now a completely different person, or more accurately – he has worked so hard, so consistently that has grew into who he is today. This is REAL TRANSFORMATION – from the root to the leaves. HENCH is dedicated to the pursuit of strength, wellbeing and resilience. Independent, locally owned since 2012. Results-driven training gym Belfast City Centre.

What Michael has achieved transcends all of these immense feats, and in truth ...Read More
