My name is Tara Millar and I was always interested in fitness! I loved going to fitness classes but found it hard to find good classes in Ireland. I lived in Toronto for over 10 years so I was spoilt for choice over there. About 5 years ago I decided to do an ETM course and start teaching classes part-time. I did my ETM course at Lab Fitness with Laura Armada.

I started teaching Aerobics and circuit classes in different community halls in the area in the eveings. Due to the recession I lost my full time job about 4 years ago and decided to go into fitness fulltime. I travelled to Dublin 2 days and week and did my gym instruction and personal training qualification with Image Fitness. At the age of 40 I became a fully qualified gym instructor and personal trainer! Then in 2013 my local gym came up for rent and I was asked if I would be interested in running it. It was a huge commitment but I was delighted with the challenge. We live in a very small town and were hit bad by the recession but I managed to make a success of the gym. I brought lots of new classes into the gym. I teach Spinning, TRX, Body conditioning, Hiit, Step, Bootcamp and always looking for new ideas .I also ran quite a few Run5k programs which were a big success. I built up quite a following and the gym and classes got busier & busier.

I received an email from Labfitness about KSFL I think it was December 2014. Went along to the meeting and was very interested. I signed up to become a franchise for the Cavan area. I started running live classes in January 2015 and was fully booked out. We have has some great success stories. I have one client Michelle lost 4 stone. She did KSFL classes with me from January to June last year. She still comes to other classes and is maintaining her weight loss. I also had another client Tony who is in his sixties, he lost 2 and half stone but also was taken of all his diabetic medication. He was delighted with his results. And again although Tony does not do KSFL live classes anymore he does come into other classes in the gym. Between running the gym, Personal Training, and KSFL time for my family was becoming an issue, and just time in general it was hard to keep everything going! Unfortunately in January this year I decided to give up the gym and concentrate more on running KSFL and freelance work.

This has given me more time 2 spend with my kids. One of my employees took over the running of the gym which was great as I know he is also a great instructor I now work in the gym part-time, do a few personal training sessions, and run KSFL live classes . I am delighted I made this decision as it had given be more time to concentrate on KSFL and just try and learn more & more! I hope to eventually run online packages. I run Ksfl live classes on Tuesday mornings and Tuesday evenings at the gym. I currently have 10 members in my morning class and 18 in my evening class. I am delighted I became a KSFL franchise and find great support from other members on facebook page. Rachel Holmes is amazing and really know how to get you motivated! I was on a KSFL fitness break with Rachel Holmes and really enjoyed her talks and classes. She really inspires you! I would also love to start running my own Fitness breaks in the future.
