Stephen Harold to Open new Gym

‘Armagh midfielder Stephen Harold is currently putting in the hard graft for his new gym Elite Fitness Centre which will open early September. EFC will be located at an accessible location in South Armagh, just off the main Dublin Road, only 5 – 10mins from Newry and approx 10 – 15min from Dundalk.

Having played on many Armagh GAA underage and youth teams, Stephen began to develop a passion for health and fitness and since then, he’s gone on to build his knowledge&skills through working in commercial gyms for a further 5 years. Stephen believes that his passion for GAA sparked off his love of health and fitness but he has since furthered his knowledge and broadened his repertoire of skills and now regularly works with teams, athletes, specific individual sportsmen&women, those seeking fat loss, injury prevention/recovery, hormonal profiling and movement screening among many others.

Stephen believes that there is undoubtedly a window of opportunity to increase the knowledge and improve the quality of training within this area to all ages and fitness backgrounds and EFC is opening to provide just that.

Stephen believes that knowledge, passion, desire and practical experience are the qualities that consistently breed success in the fitness industry.

He is currently studying for BSc Strength&Conditioning in Setanta College as well as being a certified PCFS Strength and Conditioning coach, PICP level 1 Strength and Conditioning coach, personal trainer, Biosignature Practitioner and Functional Movement Practitioner.

The gym will offer:
– 1:1 personal training
– Small group personal training
– Bootcamps
– Open classes
– Large group/team training
– Private memberships
– Bodyfat testing
– Injury prevention
– Charles Poliquin’s Biosignature Modulation
– Functional Movement Screening
– Nutritional advice
– Children’s activity groups

EFC is a large 3700 square foot facility which hopes to form a family of people working towards fitness related goals and provide you with a top quality strength and conditioning suite with the best equipment, staff and advice available.’
