The CMB Gym

Welcome to The CMB Gym.



This not your run of the mill Personal Training company and the results you will see here are not run of the mill either. We only work with clients who dedicate themselves, who are willing to learn, adapt what they learn to build a sustainable lifestyle and maintain the results they attain while under our guidance. The expert education we offer you regarding lifestyle, training and nutrition is priceless. This is something you then have for the remainder of your life and if you have adopted that positive mentality then you won’t go wrong. Mindset is massive and is the first thing you need to change in order to move forward towards your goals!



This is an “Investment” in YOU and your return on that investment ultimately depends on how accountable you can hold yourself, the effort, dedication and enthusiasm you put in!



I started CMB Personal Training back in 2007 and opened the doors of the CMB Gym in Dublin in 2012 which is perfectly situated in the busy hub of Dublin City Centre. The Gym is a RESULTS BASED facility and has quickly built a reputation for being one of the best if not “the best” results based personal training studios in this country. I had a dream to help as many people as humanly possible and that dream is being realised on a daily basis in here as well as with online clients in countries like the USA, Australia, Germany, South Africa and the UK but to name a few. Training here is not like training in your “average gym” and you will not get “average” in any shape or form.



We are a paragon of virtue in our field constantly striving to learn more by investing in our education so we are always ahead of the trailing pack. You are assured to receive quality in knowledge, quality in training, quality in nutrition and you are assured quality results. You get what it says on the tin with no bull and no endless boring cardio ūüėČ



We have a massive eclectic mix of clientele all with an array of various backgrounds from High Court Judges, Barristers, Lawyers, Doctors, TV Celebrities,¬†Business Owners, CEO’s, Students, Mummy’s, Civil Servants, Taxi Drivers, Premiership footballers, Athletes, the list goes on.. You name it we have trained them! Myself and my team of Expert Personal Trainers cater for everybody regardless of desires or goals.

Whatever the reason, it’s a good reason to invest in yourself, your mind, your body and your health. As previously aforementioned the most successful clients adopt the lifestyle and adapt the principles of our teachings to maintain what they achieve in here. It’s a choice.



Why Should I invest in a Personal Trainer?¬†Let me tell you briefly why investing in the right one is priceless! Knowledge is inestimable and finding a coach with a proven track record is not an easy task with so many cowboys out there so doing your homework is vital. My team of expert coaches will take you step by step through your journey from the initial consultation to meeting and exceeding your goals. This is “Personal Training” and “Personal” is what it should be. You are unique and everything we do is done for you on a unique basis from the construction of your training program to your uniquely devised nutritional protocol supplying you with meal plans, shopping lists and the CMB Cookbook. We will be very blunt and realistic in setting out goals and timeframes for you. We won’t blow smoke and tell you untruths just to appease, we will be honest and in that honesty we will work better together in getting you to that goal. As expert Personal Trainers we keep you accountable and cover every corner so there are NO EXCUSES!
