Howling Heart Fitness Coach Denis - transparent

Denis Fitzpatrick


I grew up playing football and hurling (didn’t make county), played a bit of tennis and soccer, took up golf a few years ago and am currently trying to improve my weightlifting.

I have a degree in Sports and Exercise science and before joining the HH team I ran group fitness classes.

What I like about the type of training at HH, is that we all train together, any age and any level of fitness.
