Introduction to Intelligent Fitness

Meredith Emily | Personal Trainer & Nutrition Coach

Meredith is living proof that you don’t have to have a lifelong relationship with the gym to transform your fitness and wellbeing; it wasn’t until she was in her ‘30s that she overhauled her diet and fitness, qualified as a personal trainer and made the move to the fitness industry.

Noel Cowman | Personal Trainer & Strength and Conditioning Coach

Noel is one of Ireland’s most experienced and qualified fitness professionals.

In his late teens and early twenties, Noel played competitive rugby and competed in natural (steroid-free) bodybuilding contests. He knew from a very early age that his career lay in health and fitness and by the tender age of 18, he was already working as a gym instructor!

What our customers are saying

“Meredith and Noel spoke at our National Wellness Day in Allergan Pharmaceuticals, Clonshaugh, on 11th April 2019. They were very informative and engaging. The feedback from the employees was very positive and everyone learned something from each talk. We would love to have them back again at some point.”

"Really good classes run by Meredith. The classes I attend are mornings which suit alot of mum's. Feel great after them and they are very good value. Meredith is a dedicated instructor. Would highly recommend."

Louise Rossiter

"I really enjoy attending Merediths bootcamp classes. Super friendly group of people. Meredith always on hand to assist and offer advice. Offers alternative exercises to those that need to take things at a lesser pace. I especially enjoy the variety of different exercises for each bootcamp class and am seeing positive results. Would highly recommend."

Bianca Murphy

“Noel has worked with the U16 Dublin Coaching Academy for the last 12 months. During this time, Noel has had a profound impact on the squad in terms of their athletic development. At all times, Noel displayed a serious level of professionalism and expertise with the team. He is highly organised and his adherence to excellence within the gym has really helped our players identify and practice many of the key attributes that are required in terms of preparing to perform at one’s best. I am delighted that Noel will be continuing in his role with the next generation of young footballers. “

Ger Lyons, Dublin Minor Football Manager

"Excellent, professional and thorough - are the first words that come to mind. This programme reviewed 3 main areas for me: fitness, nutrition and my personal goals. I love the personalised workouts that focus on the whole body targeting arms and core one day, then legs and core another. It changed the way I view fitness and health - in a good way. I now enjoy my workouts, look forward to a run and actively think about what fuels my body. Working out really does make you feel better, happier and healthier. If you are thinking about fitness but need a gentle (or a hard) push my advice would be call Intelligent Fitness."

Georga Dowling

"Highly Recommended. Super classes. Running, recovery and nutrition advice. Dedicated and enthusiastic coach."

Jean Kelly

"Did the six week nutrition course - brilliant class and really informative. Would highly recommend and Meredith so nice!"

Mary Reidy

"Really enjoy bootcamp classes run by the lovely Meredith.....highly recommend to anyone wanting to improve their fitness.....nice atmosphere... very friendly group"

Yvonne Heaslip

"Attended the nutritional classes run by Meredith -over six consecutive Tuesdays morning. Very informative covering range of topics from psychology of mindless eating, good diet, meal planning and food shopping which I find very helpful. The good news is if you miss a Tuesday morning you can attend the Saturday class. Would recommend it"

Cathy Naughton

"Last year I had my posterior cruciate ligament reconstructed having ruptured it playing rugby. After the surgery I received treatment from Noel. I was delighted with the work that he did. His knowledge of rehab and functional training was great and having been given a slim chance of playing again Noel has got me into a position to play this next season."

Brendan Carpenter

"About a year ago I had a bad back injury where I damaged one of the vertebra. I had experienced significant amount pain and reduced mobility after this. By working to Noel's plan of corrective exercises I have been able to get back to being fully functional and pain free."

Conor O’Kelly

"I have had the pleasure of working with Noel on both a professional and personal basis. As an Athletic Therapist myself I work with many clients who require initial rehabilitation and recovery from injury, as well as continued biomechanical analysis, corrective exercise, strength and conditioning and functional programming, and I have never had a single hesitation referring my clients to Noel to continue their care and achieve their goals. As an athlete myself, I’ve worked with Noel in recovery from my own injuries, and as part of an ongoing S&C protocol both individually and as part of a senior club football team, and his experience, expertise and approachability have been an absolutely key part of my success over the years. "

Danny (Fingallians Senior Player)

"I attended the one week summer camp with Meredith and Noel in July, I enjoyed it so much, I attended a second one in August. I learned a lot about the importance of exercise, nutrition and sleep. The sessions had a lot of variety and were relevant to may age. I will definitely be attending any future sessions."
