Wilder Wellbeing is an evidence-based Health & Wellbeing provider focusing on all areas of health, from physical and mental, nutritional and spiritual, corporate and individual. Founded in 2021 and led by Salthill native Mark O’Malley, our ethos is “Movement is Medicine” with a strong emphasis on physical activity to help you feel better, look better and live a longer healthy life.
Mark has a diverse background in including holding a Masters in Health Promotion, clinical experience in cardiovascular disease and weight management interventions, postgraduate qualifications in cardiovascular disease & diabetes reduction and CardiacRehabilitation. Mark is also a fully qualified and insured Personal Trainer and former endurance athlete having competed in numerous endurance events such as Marathons, Half Iron Man races and multi sport endurance races.
Our classes take the form of evidence-based High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) circuit, using validated training protocols set out by the American College of Sports Medicine. Their clinical research proved these types of classes are an effective and efficient way to improve cardiovascular fitness, burn fat, boost metabolism and increase lean muscle tone.
This is achieved by combining both cardiovascular and resistance exercises in an alternating cycle, switching from upper to lower body. It is a functional and full body routine using large/multiple muscle groups to help increase the positive impact on both your body and your mind.
Consistency is key with a minimum of 2-3 of our HIIT workouts per week required to gain and maintain results. Progression in any workout is crucial, so as the weeks go on each of the HIIT Classes will get harder and you will be encouraged to increase your intensity and the amount of resistance used.
All equipment (mats, kettlebells and dumbbells) is provided and sanitised with an anti-viral shield after each use.
Do your mind and body a favour and come join Wilder Wellbeing for a challenging, results-driven intense workout with some banging tunes (Mark takes musical requests).
