Peter K. Vaughan

PKV Personal Trainer

I have always had an interest in the human body and how we have the power to shape and create what we like from it. I have transformed my own body as well as my clients, and have built a wealth of knowledge in the world of health and fitness over many years of study & over 16 years personal experience. Through exercise and good nutrition, it is my goal to educate and encourage people to embrace health & fitness as a way of living, to keep the body performing well at all stages in life, and maintain good health.

I've trained clients from all walks of life, from hairdressers, students, builders, accountants, college lecturers, sales reps and retirees, to rugby & tennis players, swimmers & GAA players, yoga instructors & other personal trainers, competitive bodybuilding and bikini competitors and more. I work with clients, male and female from 18 to 70+ years old with all levels of fitness and abilities. My clients goals are my focus whether it's fat loss, muscle gain, improved sports performance, increased fitness levels, posture correction, muscular strength rehabilitation, disease management or anything in between.
