Beara Fitness

Gina Lewis has run fitness & exercise classes since 2014 for women, men & teens.  People attend these fun, non-competitive classes to reach their personal goals towards a healthier lifestyle.

Whether it’s to improve fitness levels & strength, increase energy & flexibility or help with weight management to lose fat and drop unwanted weight.  This is the place for you.  She has classes to suit all levels of fitness as you work at you own level and pace.

During this pandemic she relocated her business and is now based in the centre of Castletownbere, Co.  Cork.   Her studio has a capacity to hold 24 people at one time with social distancing of 2 metres. It’s a bright, airy, well ventilated space with a spring-based wooden floor which is kinder to the joints when met with impact.  There is ample parking and on-site toilet facilities.

Like all small businesses she closed her doors in  March of 2020, for a temporary break.  During the National Lockdown.  Classes went ONLINE, this was a learning curve for Gina to become an online Zoom trainer but knowing the power of exercise and how it can support and strengthen mental health it was a necessity during these uncertain times.

However Beara Fitness is back OPEN with Studio based Classes now for Women, Men and Teens 14+

Beara Fitness originally started as a Community Group set up by Gina and her friends but due to its popularity, Gina was able to turn it into a small local business after she qualified as a Fitness Instructor & Personal & Group Trainer.  She has now added Sports nutrition to complement her skills to help people with their own nutritional journey.

Come by and take a class, you’ve nothing to lose!

As a not very young and not very fit lady,  I would highly recommend Gina’s fitness classes. I’m probably somewhere between a beginner and advanced participant but that’s no problem Gina gives different options throughout the class so it’s completely up to you which level you pick. Also the class flies by as Gina mixes it up so much you don’t notice the time passing and she’s there to help with anything you find tricky couldn’t recommend her more highly.

Thanks for everything Gina hope this review is helpful
