About Jmc elite

JMC Elite is a fitness gym that offers personal training, martial arts classes, and membership classes in Portlaoise

How Our Fitness Gym Started

Our fitness gym all started with a dream to help improve people’s way of life, movement, and strength. Educating people on the need for strength for every aspect of life or sport has been a massive focus at our gym. At JMC Elite, we emphasize the importance of strength and the process of becoming stronger, both mentally and physically.

Our gym offers different services such as personal training, martial arts classes, aerobic classes, and many more. If you are a sports person with no access to a strength and conditioning coach that also suffers from consistent injuries, or maybe you are post-surgery and need to gain strength and movement capacity to return to work? If you find yourself falling into one or more categories similar to this, we guarantee you will get to where you need to be by joining our fitness gym. 

Important Factor Why Many Choose Our Gym

Getting stronger and moving better is a guarantee here at JMC Elite because training is consistently measured and monitored using the most up-to-date scientific research. Another factor of why many people decided to choose our gym is because of our weight loss program. Here at JMC Elite we can provide nutritional advice or access a fully qualified dietitian Caoimhe Kenny that has experience with great athletes such as the Kilkenny senior hurlers.

” I really hope I can coach and pass on knowledge while still learning from all my clients and future employees. I really love the sense of community that I found was evident in the most productive gyms I attended. This is something I am looking to build in my facility from youth development right through to older adults. “
