The Gym & Facilities

From Humble Beginnings

The Train Station Gym was founded in late 2011 when Brendan O’Shea of Cork Personal Training and Des Ryan of Phoenix Fitness in Galway combined forces.

Both coming from competitive backgrounds, Brendan and Des share a love of training and have a similar outlook on how to train.

However after 3 years Brendan decided to go back to his IT job due to family commitments.

Des is an IABA certified Boxing Coach, and has been coaching fighters in Galway Boxing club for a number of years. He has also competed in Motorbike racing and is an enthusiast to this day. Des is also a qualified physical therapist. Click here to read a little more about Des.
