COLM O’REILLY 9 years of CrossFit Ireland

Episode #9 Part 1

We call out to the NEW CrossFit Ireland facility and catch up with Colm O’Reilly Co-owner and head coach. Colm has been on the CrossFit seen since 2007 and for anyone that was around social media was bebo and that’s where I first found CFI.

Colm was the first affiliate owner in Ireland and CFI was originally located in Tallaght in a upstairs room over a carpentry business (if my memory is correct) He held the first competitions  know as the CrossFit invitational and helped to grow CrossFit from something a hand full of people did to 70 plus facilities in Ireland.



In this episode we talk about the old days and how hard it was to get started and grow a facility compared to now where CrossFits open with all the bells and whistles instead of the bare bones start-ups you used to see.

Colm will be the first to admit opening and running a CrossFit is not easy, there has been ups and downs along the way but as you will see Colm has come out of it a better person and coach.

As one of the original CrossFit coaches in Ireland there is a lot you can learn and take away from Colms experience as a coach, owner and person.
