About Conor O’ Shea

I was born and raised in Ireland. I played a lot of Gaelic Games growing up and decided to study exercise science for my undergrad in Edinburgh, Scotland. During this period I started weight training and getting interested in nutrition.

During my first few years of weight training I kept picking up different injuries. From tearing my groin, to shoulder pain, to a chronic foot injury (plantar fasciitis). I made all the newbie mistakes. From bench-pressing three days a week to completely neglecting mobility work to program hopping. You name it, I’ve done it.

After my studies I completed a personal trainer certification (ACE) and worked as a personal trainer for 2 years in Ireland.

During that period I qualified as a kettlebell instructor and also completed a nutrition certification from the world-renowned Precision Nutrition.

During the years I was personal training I began to see a pattern of practices that started having major impacts on my clients and my own body composition. Smart simple exercise selection and good nutrition trumped over other techniques.

I enjoyed working as a personal trainer but felt I needed a change of lifestyle

in May 2013. I was feeling run down and not able to shake off a chronic foot injury (plantar fasciitis).

I decided to leave and travel around Asia. I moved to India for 4 months. During my time in India I completed a 200-hour Hatha Yoga instructor course in Mysore India.

It was here I discovered Yoga and meditation.

Weaknesses I had not addressed before were exposed during this month. I found in Ireland I was only addressing movement and nutrition but neglected stress reducing activities like meditation. At the end of the course my foot injury, which I had for over a year, was gone.

I now take a much more minimal approach to training, nutrition and lifestyle. When you concentrate on a few important things everything else tends to fall into place.

I am now teaching English and Yoga in the beautiful Khon Kaen in the Northeast of Thailand.
