Aisling Daly PT
Meet Aisling – for a lot of you, a familiar face. Aisling was Ireland's first ever MMA world champion and our first and only female UFC fighter. She made her professional MMA debut in 2007 at the age of just 19 and has amassed years of coaching experience with full-time and recreational athletes.
She's dedicated to improving the safety within MMA – Aisling is the founder of Safe MMA Ireland, the organisation responsible for athlete safety within MMA and an Athlete Ambassador for IMMAF, the International Amateur MMA governing body. Aisling is Ireland's first female black belt in Brazilian Jiu Jitsu – a functional martial art where grade is based on performance in competition, personal skill and coaching ability.
Aisling qualified as a personal trainer from the National Training Centre in 2014 and is dedicated to helping people achieve their fitness and health goals, with an emphasis on strength and functional movement. She's also an experienced speaker, having spoken on a number of guest panels on the topics of training, fitness, mental health and brain injury.
Training, for Aisling, is about more than achieving aesthetic goals – although they're a nice bonus. It's about improving clients' health and fitness and showing them what can be achieved with consistency, dedication and determination. Aisling's previous career has given her many tools as a trainer. She takes a diligent and conscientious approach which is very client focused, supporting each person as they achieve their goals. Each program is highly individualised encompassing resistance training, mobility and nutrition, which can be sport specific if required.
