Meet CFD Apprentice Eoghan McGregor
Meet Eoghan, our newest coach at CFD. Hailing from Galway, and working close by in Google, Eoghan has been CrossFitting since 2011 and has just begun his Crossfit Dublin Apprenticeship. Recently he just completed the Crossfit Level 1 Trainer Course in Belfast and will be taking his learnings and bringing them into practice in the upcoming classes.
Eoghan has a very rounded sporting background and has been involved on a competitive level in many sports. He played inter county football for Galway at Under-21 level and raced competitively in sailing around Ireland – completing the Round Ireland Yacht Race in 2012. The team finished 6th overall – and was made up of the youngest participants ever to compete in the race with an average age of 22. His focus now has moved to competing in CrossFit competitions around Ireland and learning as much as possible.
Eoghan was introduced to CrossFit by a colleague when enquiring about gyms around Dublin “Albert brought me through the fundamentals and instantly I knew how much I wanted to commit to CrossFit.”
Having been an avid gym-goer for many years, he realised his focus on compound exercise wasn’t the correct approach. “I’ve always been a competitive person, but still wanted to learn as much as I could to push myself. Crossfit has allowed me to bring both of those elements together to achieve what I want. My passion now is to learn how to be the most efficient at every move, having the correct technique, working on my weaknesses and many other areas such as mobility. I feel that a strong focus on combining these elements together will help everyone progress to being the best CrossFitter they can be”
“I am really looking forward to helping everyone achieve their goals – whether its to hit a new PB, get butterfly pulls ups or compete in their first throw-down. I am really excited about joining Crossfit Dublin and growing this fantastic community we have. I believe we have some of the best and committed coaches in the country and am looking forward to adding my skills to this amazing team”
