We had the good fortune of connecting with Sinéad D’arcy and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Sinéad, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
I started aglow athletics with the mission to change peoples lives. There is so much information out there regarding fitness and nutrition. It can be hard to know where to start. I wanted to teach like-minded individuals who wanted to better themselves not only physically, but mentally as well. That’s why I offer customized workout plans, teach lifelong nutritional information, and practice life-changing mental exercises with clients. All while motivating and encouraging them to become the best version of themselves.
What should our readers know about your business?
What sets me apart from most personal trainers is the mindful practices I teach. This is the biggest part of my program because your mindset affects all areas of your life and especially your fitness journey. I also teach my clients how to become independent. My goal is to get them to a point where they feel they are finally in control of their bodies and minds. And can pass on what they have learned to those they love. I overcame challenges by believing in myself and what I could do. I knew people were out there that needed exactly what I was offering. I stayed motivated by my desire to help people transform and become the best version of themselves.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I’d definitely take a couple of trips to the beach! Santa Monica is my favorite. Going for a hike to the Hollywood sign is fun. And I’d eat at some of the best vegan spots in town like Cafe Gratitude.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
I would absolutely credit where I am today to my past trainer and friend Heidi Uzalec at PowerFemme Fitness. Heidi is the person that started not only my fitness and body transformation, but also my mental transformation. She gave me the tools that I needed to become the best version of myself. And she is the reason I decided to become a personal trainer. I wanted to change lives just as she had changed mine.
