The Health Hub
Michelle Malone founded the Health Hub in Swinford in April 2019. Michelle has spent a lifetime involved in health and fitness from playing sport to working in fitness which inspired her to work in this industry.
Michelle was part of the Westmeath Intermediate All Ireland Winning team in 2011. She has numerous qualifications including a Diploma in Personal Training & Nutrition, 200 Hour Yoga Alliance Teacher, 3 International Group Fitness Qualifications, Pre and Post Natal Coach and various other teaching qualifications in the fitness field including boxercise, step aerobics and circuit training to name a few.
The Health Hub is a fully equipped Gym and Fitness Class Studio including personal training and fitness classes. The main target market is 25-40 year old women and also a Programme aimed at teen fitness something needed in todays age.
The future plans of the company are to continue to grow and provide a fantastic service to the Swinford area and reach a wider audience that are not always included in health and fitness like the older adult, exercise for mental health programmes and kids fitness programmes that are ran on a continuous basis and not just one off blocks throughout the year. The plan is also to reach out to schools to help encourage health and wellbeing from an early age and facilitate wellbeing weeks to include classes and talks to kids and teens.
When asked how the EMPOWER Programme helped with the process of starting a company, Michelle responded:
The EMPOWER Programme helped give me the support I needed to take the steps necessary, it was a platform to connect with others and seek the advice that you would not have otherwise realized was available to you. It has opened doors to people who can and want to help you and at it’s basic level it was a place to ask questions that starting out you needed answered but for me has always been a support long after finishing the programme.
I use a SMART plan when goal setting:
I don’t over complicate things, I set goals that are important to me and then I work out an action plan towards achieving them. Keep it simple.
Micelle recently just won the Best Coach in Ireland at the Irish Fitness Industry Awards
