Our DKIT Sport Team


Kelly Gaffney

General Manager

About me: I qualified in sport & leisure management and started my career as a gym instructor. From there I gained vast experience in fitness and added more fitness & leisure qualifications to keep abreast with an ever changing sector. I work for Holohan Leisure since 2006 & from there I followed the management path from a young age while keeping my focus still on the gym floor and teaching classes. I studied HR and came into senior management in 2013 and have managed two Holohan sites in Drogheda & Donegal.

Fitness is my passion and leading my team to achieve the goals of others really fuels my love for this industry

I play ladies GAA and I have captained my team to past success. I like to run and have completed three Dublin city marathons.

Interesting fact: I nearly drowned three different times as a child and somehow I got back into the water where I now train lifeguards. Moral of that story is “what doesn’t kill you makes you stronger!”

Graeme Pepper

Gym Instructor

About me: I became qualified as a fitness instructor in 2011 and started working in the industry in 2012. Since then I have continued my professional development, gaining my qualifications in Suspension Training and Kettlebell Training. This year, I also completed my qualification with the N.C.S.C. as a Strength & Conditioning Coach, as this is the area where I have the most to offer in relation to the fitness industry. In that time I was fortunate enough to work alongside some of the best in the S&C industry, mixing a combination of high level as well as amateur level athletes.

Michael Griffin

Gym Instructor

About me: I first started working in the fitness industry in 1997 and worked for years as an instructor, personal trainer and supplement advisor before leaving to pursue other careers. I returned a few years ago and absolutely love it. I believe my time away has given me a unique insight; as I was that out of shape person returning to training after years of absence. I never lost my love for bodybuilding and have since completed in the 2014 national, natural bodybuilding finals placing second in my category and am looking forward to competing for years to come. I love pushing myself and keeping up to date with the latest research in training and nutrition and I am a big believer in training smarter and love helping people push through their limits.


kate

Kate McKeever

Gym Instructor

About me: I’ve always had a passion for sport and fitness since a very young age. I am in my final year of my sports degree and qualified in Gym Instruction. Getting a taste of the fitness industry inspired me to obtain further qualifications and pursue a career in this field. I’ve played soccer at all levels ranging from School Boy’s League to International level and I have won numerous awards along the way. My desire to inspire people coupled with my love for football led me to coaching which has seen me work with the FAI for several years. Competing in the UEFA Women’s Champion’s League was one of my proudest moments.
