At ForgetTheGym, we love getting outside, moving and feeling fabulous. We help you get up off the couch, get out the door and feel amazing. Our favourite way to move is to run (at your comfortable pace). We love helping people to start running, keep running and most importantly feel good running.
We are a team of 4 coaches who understand how hard it is to juggle everything. But we recognise how important it is to look after our body and balance some of the stress in our days. So we don’t shout, scream or scare you off running, instead our aim is to encourage you to get started, build your running confidence and keep you motivated and inspired to keep on moving in the great outdoors.
Founder and Coach – Mary Jennings
Mary is the author of the book ‘Get Running’ published in 2019 by Gill Books. She is a regular columnist with The Irish Times and a frequent voice on radio, television and print (See latest media). She has plenty practise on the roads herself having completed over 45 marathons and ultramarathons.
As well as working with individual and groups, Mary has presented at many wellness events and coaches corporate groups including Aer Lingus, AVIVA, Accenture, PwC, The Irish Times, Thrive Festival, JP Morgan, Deloitte and Virgin Media.
Coach - Aoife Slater
From parkruns to marathons, Aoife has seen running change her body and her mindset and today coaches our runners who need support, motivation and a gentle nudge in the right direction. Aoife is ensuring her love for running is passed on to the next generation as she encourages her children to enjoy junior parkrun on Sunday mornings.
Food Coach - Dee Daly
Dee combines her love of food and cooking with her nutritional background to show people that food can be both tasty and healthy. She believes the best tool to inspire people to eat healthy is flavour and thankfully she approves of our post run picnics and coffees.
Yoga Coach - Linda Champ
Today we are lucky to have Linda teach virtually for our running group helping us complement our running (and our lives) with yoga. Linda has over 14 years experience in Holistic Therapy, Nutritional Therapy, Neuromuscular & Physical Therapy and Ashtanga Yoga teaching at home and abroad. We have yet to convince Linda to come running with us, but we are working on it!
