Client Spotlight - Claire Walsh

Updated: Sep 19, 2019

Claire is a personal training client and free diver currently training to be the first woman to represent Ireland in the upcoming 2019 AIDA Freediving World Championships in Nice, France this September (2019).


Claire began training with me 8 months ago, getting physically and mentally ready for the upcoming world championships. During that time we

  • reduced bodyweight

  • increased strength

  • built muscle,

  • increased cardiovascular endurance,

  • improved nutrition habits

  • worked on mindset


After 6 months of hard work and dedication with me here in Southside Gym in Sandyford, Claire has spent the last 2 months in Egypt training the aspects we cannot train in the gym. Like being underwater :)


Journalist Phillip Bromwell has written an article about Claire's road to the Worlds (and shot a lovely video piece) for the RTE website which you can click here to see.


If you would like to help Claire get to the World Championships by sponsorship or donation you can do so on her website: ClaireWalshLife.com




Update 19 Sept 2019:

Claire put in a great performance at the AIDA World free diving championships and broke 2 national records. Nice !
