As the head coach and founder of Hamboody Strong, Deirdre oversees the overall operations of Hamboody Strong and also leads the majority of circuit training classes. Deirdre comes from a background of competitive athletics including hockey, soccer, track & field, triathlon and long distance running. As she aged (ugh), Deirdre found her training was leading to more and more frequent injuries. Because she wanted to have the knowledge of how to train and avoid injury, she opted to go back to school and become a Certified Personal Trainer and Certified Fitness Nutrition Specialist through the American Council on Exercise (ACE), and while she intended to use the knowledge she acquired for personal use only, after some encouragement from family and friends, she decided to become a personal trainer full time - and Hamboody Strong was born! She too, along with her clients, is on a journey back to wellness!
