The gym at Aspire Fitness is located in the heart of the beautiful Iveragh Penisula in the town of Cahersiveen. Here amongst the magical giant’s landscape of mountains, lakes and ocean views our professionally designed bespoke fitness space offers members and clients a place to call their own as they strive to achieve their fitness goals.

Before returning to the Iveragh peninsula in 2019, Kieran spent many years working in London and throughout the UK in a senior operations role with the UK’s largest labour supplier. Having studied for and obtained his fitness instructor credentials, he now combines his significant business and operational experience with his passion for exercise and his home place to run Aspire Fitness, helping members and clients every day to achieve their personal fitness goals.
Always bringing the good vibes and feeling most at home when giving one of his original SeaSide Sessions, Kieran is passionate about getting his clients moving well and in great shape through strength training, mobility and functional exercise.

WHAT CLIENT'S SAY
To all those moms who knows too well how tough it can be with the kids and finds it hard to get time out for yourself and stuck in a rut- Kierans classes are perfect!! Not only are you getting exercise but your also getting fresh air too which automatically boosts your system for going home. Since I started with Kieran I feel much better physically and mentally. I also find everyone is like a family member and not only do we get exercise but we have endless laughs.
I couldn’t recommend Aspire or the seaside sessions more. A very welcoming and fun but very effective class. I wasn’t fit at the start and I still have a way to go but the atmosphere and energy makes me want to go back again and again.
When I started with Kieran, I was nervous to say the least, as I’m usually a very shy and self-conscious person. I thought everyone going to the sessions would judge me but I was certainly proven wrong. I’m proud to say I’ve made amazing friends and even prouder to say I am part of a new amazing, motivating and loving community. I’m no longer shy or self-conscious in my own body. My mental health has immensely improved and each day I aspire to be a better version of me.
I attended the Seaside Sessions circuit training with Kieran O’Driscoll during the Summer months and the benefits were instant and enormous. The sessions were well planned and varied, and Kieran is so helpful and knowledgeable and always on hand to make sure you are doing each exercise correctly. The music, the workout variety and Kierans’ energy and attitude made these classes a joy to be part of and you were always looking forward to the next class. Over the summer months I have grown stronger, toned up and am now injury free. I would highly recommend these classes to all ages.
The pounds were piling on during lockdown and I was left feeling depleted and unmotivated. When Kieran contacted me at the beginning of his journey, I was more than delighted to jump onboard and join him. I can only say how thankful and grateful I am that I decided to take the plunge and get exercising again.
Seaside sessions changed my mindset towards working out. Kieran created an inclusive community where everyone was welcome. While the classes tested our limits, Kieran always ensured there was a fun element to each class. An environment was fostered where encouragement and teamwork were very much to the fore. I feel fitter, stronger and healthier and no longer dread the thought of working out thanks to Kieran.
Seaside sessions have introduced me into the world of fitness and helped me steadily lose weight while getting fit and having fun doing it. Along this journey I have made friends with amazing people all at different levels of fitness and we all have encouraged each other all the way.
Training with Kieran has been a real game changer for me. He is a great personal trainer with great skill and knowledge of his profession. He continually delivers his training sessions in a happy, relaxed and safe environment, making them a pleasure to attend. He is very attentive, motivating all to improve their mental and physical fitness, with encouraging words and technique. I have become a happier, stronger more focused person in the past few months and I owe this to training with a great bunch of people at the Seaside sessions.
