About IB Health & Fitness

Hi, thank you for visiting my website. My name is Imelda Breen. I am a fully qualified Fitness Instructor, Pilates Teacher and Personal Trainer and a member of REPS Ireland. I am passionate about motivating people to stay fit and healthy as they age. I have clients of all ages, from 30 year old mothers of small children, to men and women in their 60’s and 70’s, and all ages and fitness levels in between.

Fitness has been a part of my life, all my life. Maintaining a high level of fitness, always playing sport, using weights as part of my training and staying focused on good nutrition, has helped me stay fit and healthy throughout my life.

It helped me raise my two boys, both born very prematurely, finding the energy to keep up with them when, as a parent, I had many hospital appointments, sleepless nights and long days.

It helped me win a European Bronze Medal in Ladies Singles at the Senior Badminton Championships in Spain in 2008.

It helped me win in my battle with Cancer in 2010, a diagnosis which left me reeling.  We all have times when life throws us a curve ball, and that was certainly one for me. Going through surgery, treatment and 5 years of medication took its toll on me both physically and mentally. But my good health ( in all other ways) combining exercise with good nutrition helped me come through that difficult time, getting me back to full health, to continue to live my life with renewed vigour and enthusiasm.

My continued love of living a healthy lifestyle led me to study Personal Training, Fitness Instruction and Pilates. With these qualifications I am hoping to help others become fit and healthy, through guidance on exercise and good nutrition. My goal is to make regular exercise and healthy living attainable, achievable and enjoyable for everyone I work with, even those who might feel a bit too self-conscious to join a gym or attend a class, or those who may feel they have left it too late to begin exercising.

I am a member of the Register of Exercise Professionals in Ireland. I continue to stay abreast of any changes in the fitness industry to continue to provide my clients, both private (individuals) and semi-private (small groups), and those attending my classes, with the best possible service.

Exercise is different things to different people, depending on their preference. Whatever your preference is I will give you every support, encouragement and guidance so that you can reach your health and fitness goals. I look forward to working with you.
