I’ve been a member here for almost a year and would highly recommend Motiv8 if you are considering training in a supportive environment. I’ve been to commercial gyms before who... offer classes but it’s my view that smaller group classes give better outcomes and makes it so much easier to build an exercise routine into your week. Kevin and John take away the hassle of trying to work out sets, reps, variation etc. and design a plan each week. If you’ve ever had a hard time sticking to weight training or aren’t confident with it this is honestly the type of gym that will help you most. It’s become something that I look forward to and even on the days where it’s hard to turn up, I always feel better within a few minutes of arriving.read more

Great classes! The environment is always welcoming and positive. Small class sizes are fantastic as you always get plenty of support, encouragement and instruction. The structure... of the classes is well thought out so you expand on your knowledge of the exercises performed yet they never become repetitive or boring.Motiv8 fitness Waterford is the ideal for all levels as it's tailored very individually around each person. Kevin & his team have a passion for fitness done properly and I'm proud to be a member!read more

My first experience with Motiv8 Fitness and have not been disappointed! I have been training here about 3-4 times a week for little over a month now. The fun workouts, awesome... music and friendly environment make it a great place to workout. Kevin will provide hands on instant feedback and adjustments during the workouts, and always encourages you to achieve more. The workouts for the classes changes every session, so it never gets boring or repetitive. Highly recommended!😁read more
