Health, fitness and wellbeing are intrinsic parts of each and every one of us. When any one of those elements dip or become worrisome, the whole self suffers the consequences. At Fit Screen, we understand the anxiety and barriers often associated with getting fit and we are adamant that we can alleviate those worries.
In a nutshell, Fit Screen takes a holistic approach to fitness and wellbeing with medical oversight, spearheaded by Damien Donoghue. A BSc Nurse, professional trainer and supportive coach hybrid, Damien is the first to bring a service of this kind to Ireland. Cool, calm, collected and ever-approachable, Damien is eliminating the trepidation and intimidation linked to exercise and wellbeing for people at all levels of the fitness scale.
Starting his journey as a qualified nurse in 2010, Damien has travelled the world for work while fitness has always flowed through his veins. Through suffering injuries of his own and undergoing rehabilitation, Damien was inspired to take a clinical approach to training, adopting the structure and rationale of his work in clinical assessment. This led to the birth of Fit Screen.
Through Fit Screen’s non-invasive, head-to-toe body scanner, we can pinpoint any number of imbalances or ailments that may exist within your body and set a baseline. Then, through the structure of a basic system of gradual lifestyle changes, attainable and achievable long-term goals can be set and a good ritual of training and exercise can be implemented, because if it’s not measured, it’s not managed. #notmeasurednotmanaged
Through the highly detailed in-body scan, any existing imbalances or concerns will be charted and interpreted. Then a number of physical readings will be taken, which include blood pressure, oxygen saturation and heart rate checks, followed by a short fitness test. All of these measurable metrics go towards painting an accurate picture of where you’re at and setting out a sustainable plan that can be elevated from session to session.
Shifting the focus from the variable, subjective weighing scales and the aesthetic side of fitness, Fit Screen have your health and wellbeing at the core of everything we do. We want you to get fitter, healthier, overcome your injuries, negotiate around any health conditions and get on track to look and feel better than ever.
While Fit Screen’s one-on-one service can be of great use to anyone and everyone, it is most beneficial to those who have never trained, have sustained an injury, have recently had surgery or have health concerns that make the thoughts of heading to the gym seem unbearable. With Damien on standby, equipped with I.C.U and Catheter Lab experience, orthopaedic experience, and up-to-date CPR & manual handling training, you can rest assured that you are in good hands.
Encouraging simple changes, establishing good habits and setting out a sustainable, achievable fitness plan are the goals that Damien will be bringing through. It’s about walking the walk and talking the talk over a long period of time and being confident in the fact that these minor adjustments will culminate in you becoming the best possible version of yourself, inside and out. It might just be the kick in the bum you needed!
