The Summit was founded in Westport, Co. Mayo in 2013 under the name RLS fitness. RLS re-branded at the start of 2019. Before I opened RLS (now The Summit) I worked more specifically as a personal trainer and a performance coach with many sports teams. My role would be to increase individual and team sports performance through tailored strength and conditioning programs based upon the needs of the athlete in relation to their sport. As much as I loved the difference I could make in these areas I was always drawn to helping the average person. The ‘me and you’s’ of society that worked out for different and more important reasons. The ones that needed a boost in confidence, stress relief, a social outlet and just to feel like they belonged to something. My passion for this led me to taking the decision to open up a fitness studio to cater for the general population and give them an experience like they never had at a typical gym.
