Personal Trainer/Exercise Specialist

Duncan O'Brien

Duncan formalised a lifelong passion for sport, health and fitness in 2011 by successfully completing his personal training certificates with Premier Training International and started with Bodyguards in early 2012. He previously combined sports and science in an unconventional way by studying Chemistry at Loughborough University and playing semi-professional football for Shepshed Dynamos FC (Unibond League 1) and more recently on returning to the North East for South Shields FC (Northern League).

Dunc has recently been working with the Gateshead FC under the supervision of a UKSCA coach, Nick Probett and intends to work towards his UKSCA accreditation.

Dunc has a passion for all things health-related and is particularly interested in the more holistic side of health & fitness coaching, specialising in areas such as stress management, movement, mobility, functional strength, breathing and nutrition.
