I’m very happy to write a wee bit on my experiences at Square One Training with James

My name is Daryl, a kiwi and new to the area my brother in law suggested I check out Square One Fitness up the road.


No longer able to play rugby due to a few major knee injuries (as well as age) and similar sports I was beginning to notice how tight my clothes were getting and how I was no where near fitting into my wedding suit.

I was pretty nervous walking into the gym in Kilcornan on day 1 but as soon as I met James I started to feel at ease and energized.

Six months down the track I feel great in my skin, my clothes fit way better, I get compliments on how good I look and the wife is pretty happy with the saggy guts that now shows a few abs.

Everyone I’ve meet at Square One is happy, down to earth and motivated, which is a massive reflection on James and the atmosphere he creates. James definitely knows his stuff and has this ability to make you sweat your arse off whilst having a great time.

Every class is different, challenging and you walk out knackered, stoked and wanting more all at the same time.

Unfortunately I’ve had to move over to the big schmoke (Dublin) so I can’t make the classes anymore and I really miss them.

I fully recommend Square One Training to anyone and everyone.

Not only have I transformed my body and mind, and made new friends but I’ve picked up some really positive habits that I’m actually sticking to over here.

James is very professional with loads of knowledge and he actually cares. I don’t know how he remembers everyone’s name, but he does. He creates an amazing atmosphere and the challenges he sets keeps you active and motivated in between classes. He will even shout you a pint at the social outings he organises for everyone.

Square One Training: Fun, challenging, friends and results.

Thanks James,

Daryl Owens
