From a very young age I played competitive sports including Gaelic football, soccer, athletics, badminton, basically anything that was on in my local town of Foxford. When I was in my teens I was lucky enough to have played for mayo on the ladies Gaelic team. I started on the U14s and U16s, then Minor and Senior. The dedication and motivation that was needed was something else. I was playing for a few teams at the same time and kept this going for a few years. Although I loved the sport especially the team element I fatigued and found myself not having the same grá for it that I did when I started. With a heavy heart I gave up playing at that level. So here I am now aged 30. I have tried many different hobbies, from joining a gym, to a game or two of tag rugby to light jogging around my local area but never kept any up consistently. Until this summer when I joined bootcamp in Templeogue. It is the first time since my teens that I go to exercise because I want to and not because I have to. It took me a while to find an exercise that works for me but now I have, I love going every week. I love the mix of jogging, to hard-core exercises, the trainer pushing you to push yourself, to the chats with a new face each week. I find its a great way to de-stress, feel good with the added benefit of a great night sleep afterwards.
