The Trainer : Siobhan O'Connell

November 24 2016


Siobhan O'Connell is a qualified Level 3 Personal Trainer who qualified with Premier Global in 2007. She has always had a passion for sports; running, cross country, gymnastics, trampolining from an early age. Academically she has passed her Sports Science A-level and graduated in business with Cardiff university, which lead her to pursue a business in the fitness industry. 
She finds this such a rewarding role to have chosen and she counts herself lucky to do something she truly loves and has a real passion for !
In addition to this Siobhan is continuing her journey and starting a sports massage course Level 4 in order to extend her knowledge and help with individuals whom are prone to becoming injured this is offered in order to prevent injuries from occurring. 
At present Siobhan works as a freelance personal trainer and has previously managed two gyms onsite for Npower where she did a number of different classes, including circuits, boxercise, aerobics, resistance training and running clubs. In which all classes became very busy over a small space of time and was a valued member of the organisation. 
She promoted health and wellbeing across Npower and arranged fitness events for the company and organised local runs and sponsored classes to raise money for local charities. Within her time at Npower she met lots of people but the most important aspect of this was changing people's opinions and drive towards getting them up from their desks before work, lunch times and after work in order to change their lives and introduce them into the gym and in turn this began to bring people together across the organisation, making it a fun environment to be involved in and an escapism from their desks. 
Even though she trains individuals as her job, she has also thought it was important to be trained by a few different trainers for a period of time to see how it feels from a clients perspective. During this process it became a valuable experience being able to show empathy with someone on an individual basis and also learning different teaching styles from this, she decided to take the best bits and add her personality, drive, knowledge and commitment in order to provide her clients with her full attention and expertise. 
Within Siobhan's career as a trainer she has experience training a number of different people from children, clients with injuries helping with rehabilitation, training individuals to achieve goals for example tough mudder events, half Iron man events within the U.K. 5k,10k runs, half marathons, marathons, body building competitions and people whom are striving to loose weight and gain muscle mass or to help with strength, endurance and conditioning. 
Siobhan has managed to get people to achieve some magnificent successes by working together, giving people the understanding and confidence they need and knowing that dedication and consistency is key! you can read a few of these success stories on our one 2 one training page. 
She believes that everyone is different and helps clients on an individual basis in order for them to achieve their goals and encourage their maximum potential. 
Along with this Siobhan will always look at the dietary requirements that helps assist the individuals goals. 
In 2012 Siobhan was blessed to give birth to her second child and wanted to set a goal for herself to see what was possible if the body was pushed to its maximum potential. She had to work on her mind,body and soul she decided that she would enter her first body building competition for the UKBFF which is a recognised body building federation. 
This was a massive challenge because within a year of having her second child she was required to get on stage for the first time with others. This wasn't a small goal, not only to transform and train her body, she had to train her mind into believing this was possible. 
Siobhan trained to the maximum, she gave all of her spare time and energy into her diet, training, family, and dedicated the year to the plan she set in place to see if this goal was achievable, along the way there were lots of hurdles that she had to overcome and it was far from easy for her 
There are a number of times in life we can change direction and steer off course and quite easily take short cuts and throw the towel in, however time and time again she followed what she believed in what she wanted to achieve. 
In April 2013 Siobhan walked on stage in front of hundreds of people, at the time this was her own personal goal and she knew what she was capable of doing when you want something and you give it your all! 
This is why she has faith in absolutely everyone that she can help you achieve your goal by working with Siobhan and unleashing your potential! 
From this competition she placed and continued it all over again for the next year to enter into the UK Finals which at the start of all of this she would never of thought was possible! 
All of Siobhan's experiences and knowledge are now put into practice as a trainer for Seeds2Glory working alongside two amazing people Richard and Ricardo and together they have created a professional, knowledgable and experienced team to help guide you to the new you !

Ricardo Say's:

I often fail, school, college and indeed life, Ive been knocked down before. But to succeed in life we/i must learn from every knock down is a step closer to Success, I must learn and turn it to rise Bigger and stronger!
I sell Fulfilment To all, But I don't sell cars. I sell the best in you. I wanna show you, your ability. A know fact ! The most wealthiest place in the world is not Dubai China or any country you know of! It's a Cemetery, why you may ask ! Think how many people died with dreams they never Pursuits, how many Inventions lay with them , how many amazing books ideas or thoughts died with them.Maybe they got knocked down but others! The Naysayers in your life, The People who don't have your dreams or ideas, But rather then using it as a stepping stone to success you crumbled. What I'm saying, life is a system of wave, your born you live you die ! You can fight it has much as you like! But you will never win. Every one around you is on the same wave. One day the earth will Cleanse us, to make way for fresh and new us!
There is nothing more satisfying in your heart , knowing what you have done and left behind for others, how many people have you changed or helped change.Did you know the most powerful thing in our world is a changed mind. The human spirit is so powerful.

For as long as I can remember I have had a passion for exercise. It has always played a big part of my life from an early age, even at school PE was my favourite subject. Originally I am from a small village called Woodcote in Oxfordshire at the top of the Chilterns. Sport and exploring was my thing. Woodcote was Situated between Berkshire and Oxfordshire.  I represented both counties in both running and football and my age I was at the top level. Woodcote was full of woodland and very high up so whenever I went out anywhere I'd have to climb back up the hills. It didn't take me long to understand my strength (physical activity). Reading and writing was never my forte but I learnt the ability of the connection between the two. Whilst others were passing their exams, I watched and learnt about the bigger picture. I used to spend a lot of time with my friends in the woods having fun and going on adventures.From school I went to a sports college for 2 years to pass an Diploma in sports science.I'll always remember my college tutor once said to me (please use this quote yourself - it's very powerful) "If money was no object, what would you really enjoy doing?". Well when we finally got down to what I really wanted to do which was a become a sport or life coach as I wanted to connect as many people as possible together in my life. He replied "you do that and forget the money, if you say that getting the money is the most important thing, you will spend your life completely wasting your time. You’ll be doing things you don’t like doing in order to go on living, that is to go on doing things you don’t like doing, which is stupid. Better to have a short life that is full of what you like doing than a long life spent in a miserable way. And after all, if you do really like what you’re doing, it doesn’t matter what it is, you can eventually turn it – you could eventually become a master of it. It’s the only way to become a master of something, to be really with it. . So don’t worry too much".
I have always believed there are three things in this life in any culture, any walk of life that brings people together. These are Music, Food and Sports. So four years ago I really decided to combine my passion, what I believe and my desire to bring people together in to a career. I have a desire to help people get fit, change the way they feel and bring families and communities together.
