Hey everyone, and welcome to the West Wood Club blog.
For those of you who don’t know me, I’ll quickly introduce myself. My name is Mike Trott. I am fitness instructor at West Wood Clubs Clontarf. I also work as a Trainer and Presenter for Les Mills. I have been the in the fitness industry for over ten years, currently holding a Master’s degree in Sport Science. I am also in the middle of my PhD in the same subject.
In 2015, I was awarded the UK’s best instructor award and also won the international award in the same year.
I’ve presented masterclasses in almost every continent and have published articles in most areas of exercise science, with my academic specialities being health psychology and group dynamics.
One of my great passions is the belief that everybody should have free access to good quality information about health and fitness (there is a lot of information out there, but how can we tell what is fake-news and what is good?). Over the coming months I will be dispelling myths, exploring health and fitness trends and discussing all things West Wood Club.
If you have any topics that you would like to discuss, please leave them in the comments section and I will do my best to research them and write a few words.
