We are delighted to have Barry come on board with the Parish Park to offer this great service.

Each program will run for six weeks at a time starting with a weight in and a strategic plan drawn up for you to manage your food and inspire you to take part in a weekly fitness program in the Parish Park. The cost of the six-week program is €50 which is fantastic value when you consider you have your own personal trainer to mentor you along the way.
