Fitness For Everyone
Howling Heart Fitness
At Howling Heart Fitness we use functional movement to promote health and fitness. We run coached classes in small groups. All our classes are open to all abilities and fitness levels.
We are located in the middle of Clonakilty and love to welcome new members! We are all about our community (our pack) and having fun while improving your overall wellness. We have a high number of members that have been with us from the start, this loyalty and consistency is what we are all about!
Exercise for Fulfilled,
Healthy Happy Lives
Wellness is the absence of disease and we all want to fit into the category of wellness where we don’t need to visit the doctor regularly because we are always sick, instead we want to push off sickness and therefore push off the nursing homes as much as we can. We all want to be able to play outside or do activities with our grandchildren and just be well!!
Let’s get you better at lifting, pushing, pulling, running and jumping because the direct correlation to improving these markers are improved health markers (except for the odd outliers - genetic, environmental, traumatic etc). As your lifting numbers increase and your 1 mile run, 2km rows and bodyweight etc come down, so does your triglyceride levels, cholesterol, resting heart rate etc.
We would love for you all to have a fulfilled, happy, healthy lives. We want you to be an addition to your families when you're 70, 80 and well on into your 90s and not a hindrance where you must be looked after. Doctors are lifeguards. Trainers are swim coaches. When you need a lifeguard, you need a lifeguard, not a swim coach but, if you need a lifeguard, you probably needed a swim coach and didn’t get one.
As trainers in Howling Heart Fitness, we can help you learn to swim so that you hopefully will never need a lifeguard.
Different classes for all ages and fitness levels
What Our Members Say
Highly recommended Howling Heart! Recently trained at Howling Heart during a visit home. Great coaches and a a super friendly/welcoming group of members. Great to even catch up with old Camogie teammate Juanita. Hopefully join you all again next year. If anyone ever finds themselves visiting Perth Australia. Be sure to let me know and I will be sure to help repay the favour of a welcoming gym. Continued success!!
I drop in here from time to time and every time I’m treated like family. If you are in Clonakilty, you need to train here. It’s a fun, professional environment with a great sense of community that you immediately feel a part of.
It's awesome, they push you enough to keep you getting better but also ensure you don't injure yourself! They're really supportive and friendly and try to make sure everyone's enjoying themselves...
Great place, great people. I've loved every bit of my time spent in Howling Heart, so much so that I'm running away with the coach! Ok, so I may be a bit bias, but this place is so welcoming and chilled that I spent more and more time there, just because I wanted to. It has that real community feel that's hard to find in the most established of gyms. I joined at the start of July. I thought I was relatively fit after coming back from London for the summer. Turns out I was wrong...! However embarrassed I might have felt about the state of my fitness, no one batted an eyelid, in fact, it was completely the opposite! Bundles of encouragement to finish the session from all the members and coaches ensured that by the end of my two months, I can honestly say that I'm fitter, more mobile and stronger than ever before. To top it all off I got my first ring muscle up on my last day and a personal best in my snatch. I can honestly say that it was a pleasure to train with you guys. What an asset to the heart of Clonakilty!
Fantastic to be able to drop in to such a great facility and friendly people to train when home. Knowledgeable and encouraging coaches and a supportive atmosphere!! So welcoming for a drop in and would also be fantastic as a full time trainig gym! Thanks guys, will be back!
I was in Clonakilty on holidays and found this awesome place to workout . The equipment was top notch and the Coaches where extremely welcoming and helpful. I loved every minute of it and would highly recommend this gym to anyone interested in a good workout! HH Fitness it's a great place to start as I saw the coaches taking care of every single person, who's new to this fantastic and safe sport! Lovely people and great community!I wish you all the best for your future! Thanks a lot!
I would highly recommend Howling Heart fitness to anyone.The coaches are fab and are really supportive.They are highly experienced and are great to get you motivated. The encouragement and the high fives really makes you feel special. I love a challenge and at HowlingHeart you sure get that.Every night you do something different which I like as there is no room for boredom like other exercise classes and gyms.The only person you compete with is your self and it's a great feeling when you out do your self. I love it and I bet if you tried it you would too
Love it here. It's the best coaching anyone can get, I have done this type of training for a while but in only being here a few weeks I have knocked so much off my to achieve list already and it is Purely down to the coaching. Kieran and Ets take the Wax on Wax off approach. Just like in karate kid they take it back to the basics and then in no time you are achieving things you didn't think possible it makes such a difference when the coach's are hands on and take time with u to explain, encourage, and celebrate when u hit so many goals u never thought possible.
Out of any kind of training for years and just lost interest but I've rekindled my love of exhaustion in howlin heart. There is something new everyday and good fun doing it. Ticks all the box's.
I am new to this type of training. I love it. Brilliant gym and top class coaches. They scale everything to your abilities and drive you on when they know you can push on. A1.
