519 School of Hip Hop
"I have had the pleasure of working with Niall on various mobility & strengthening workshop series for the students and instructors at 519 School of Hip Hop. With every interaction it is evident that Niall is knowledgeable and passionate about his craft. But his ability to connect with each participant and tailoring his approach to meet the needs of individuals is definitely admirable and refreshing."
I knew Niall from working alongside him so I got to see him in action and that sold me on his programming, knowledge, and skillset as a trainer. He always brings a fresh perspective and a lot of enthusiasm to every session and that's just what I needed to take my agility, speed, and power to the next level. I needed a new kick in the butt to start improving my vertical and sprint speed for the variety of sports I play. He challenged me to practice what I preach and keep smashing my own goals so that I could stay motivated and help my clients achieve theirs. The knowledge I gained from every session was enough to make it worth but then I got all the physical benefits from training hard as well. 10/10 would recommend Niall. Tell him what you want and put the work in. You won't be disappointed!
I started training with Niall almost 2 years ago. In the beginning, I was extremely inconsistent and wasn't taking it seriously. I hated working out and didn't feel comfortable in the gym or with myself.
For the past 6 months, I have been training with him consistently 3x a week & following a nutrition plan that was specific to my needs and goals & my life has completely changed. I have never felt better physically, mentally, or emotionally! I have never felt the way I have about myself before!
He is truly so passionate and has such a strong drive to help you achieve your goals, really truly cares and wants you to be successful with your fitness journey. He is always learning and taking new courses to further his education for the best interest of his clients. He pushed me when I wanted to give up, he motivated me and reassured me everything I was doing/feeling was all apart of the process. He helped me gain the confidence I never had in myself, showed me what my body was truly capable of & honestly how fun training really is.
My lifestyle has completely changed and I now realize how to achieve my goals and strive to always be better. I'm overall healthier, stronger & happier!! I can't thank him enough and excited to continue and see where my fitness journey takes me! I recommend him to ANYONE who is looking for a Coach!

"I have been a member at Niall’s gym for nine months. Over that time, the majority of WOD classes I have taken have been led by Niall (well over a hundred). It has been so evident to me since class number one that Niall’s breadth of knowledge, his passion, and his communication skills make him a uniquely suited and talented coach and trainer.
For me, the most impressive thing about Niall, is that, even in a group setting, he is able to silence the near constant negative internal dialogue I have going off in my head leading up to a workout. I will be beating myself up for last night’s poor meal choices, or how difficult a particular movement is for me to perform, but Niall’s positivity and thoroughness really snaps me out of it and gets me to be present, focusing on the workout. When my frustration does occasionally boil over and I get bogged down in the details of a particular lift, Niall also goes above and beyond to meticulously break down the movement with me step-by-step, even after he has just broken it down for the group, really meeting me at my comfort level and allowing me to refocus my efforts.
In any walk of life, it is rare to encounter someone who is as good at their jobas Niall is at his age, like an elite college athlete who has entered the pros and is able not only to hang with the veterans, but to flourish. Clearly, Niall has chosen to craft what he is passionate about into a career, and it shows inhow his positive attitude and engaging demeanor motivate his clients to push themselves.
Group Training Client
Joining any gym can be an intimidating experience. Whether it be concerns with self confidence, mobility limitations or fear of injury, simply getting started is often the hardest part. Having a coach you trust and who gets to know his clientele makes all the difference. I have been training with Niall in a group setting 2-3 times weekly for the last year now and I can say with complete confidence I would not be enjoying the same level of progress without his help. Over that time I have lost 60lbs and made significant improvements to my strength and mobility while learning skills I never thought I would be capable of. From day one Niall has gone above and beyond to get to know me and make himself available for extra help before and after class. His exceptional attention to form through timely coaching queues as well as his genuine interest in your personal growth and development create an environment where I am confident I can achieve my ever evolving fitness goals.
"Training with Niall improved my athleticism in many areas. Coming off of a ankle injury, he helped me regain strength and confidence to allow me cut harder and faster on the soccer field"
"Working with Niall over the past few months has helped drastically with my baseball and overall well being. Coming off of a injury he has helped in getting me stronger, more mobile and has taught how to use my body more efficiently. These things I've learned from Niall will stick with me and help me in my baseball career."
