Padraig Lucey re­turns to help strengthen the Kil­lar­ney lo­cals

The Kerryman (South Kerry Edition) - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

THERE’s an Elvis Pres­ley song out there en­ti­tled ‘Re­turn to Sender’ and while, of course, the song is not about the re­turn of a for­mer AFL player to his home­town of Kil­lar­ney, we’re going to roll with it.

Padraig Lucey has re­turned from his two year spell with Gee­long FC in Aus­tri­alia and he’s al­ready se­cured him­self a new tar­get - help­ing the peo­ple of Kil­lar­ney to get fit.

Start­ing on Fri­day Oc­to­ber 13, Padraig, who is a qual­i­fied gym in­struc­tor and cur­rently study­ing Sport Stud­ies and Phys­i­cal Ed­u­ca­tion in UCC, will be giv­ing strength and con­di­tion­ing train­ing at The Gle­nea­gle Ho­tel’s Aquila Club Leisure Cen­tre for a pe­riod of 10 weeks.

“Dur­ing my time with Gee­long FC, I learned about elite train­ing and per­for­mance and gained knowl­edge from some of the best coaches, train­ers and ath­letes that Aus­tralia has pro­duced,” said Padraig.

The 10 week course, which will cost €150, will in­clude a weekly one-hour strength and con­di­tion­ing ses­sion, a weekly one-hour coach­ing ses­sion on nu­tri­tion and well­ness and full mem­ber­ship of The Aquila Club. More in­for­ma­tion from the Aquila Club on 064 6636178.

For­mer AFL player, Padraig Lucey, will be giv­ing strength and con­di­tion­ing train­ing in The Gle­nea­gle Ho­tel for the next 10 weeks.
