Lorna Heyes

Head Coach & Owner

 

I first started in the Fitness Industry as Fitness Instructor and Personal Trainer in 2006. In 2009, A friend suggested I check out CrossFit so I did and I was hooked after the first session.

In 2011, I travelled to London to complete my first of many  CrossFit certifications, after passing this, I came back to Ireland to open CrossFit West Dublin.

Since opening in 2011 CFWD has  developed into one of the most recognized and highly respected CrossFit Boxes in Ireland. CFWD was the 9th CrossFit Box to open in the Island of Ireland. We know have over 130 members at CFWD.

In 2012 CFWD held a competition “The Summer Slam” and I met my Husband Scot Heyes , who also coaches here.

CrossFit is extremely powerful. The effect it has on your life is like nothing I have ever experienced before.

I am lucky enough to have a career in something I truely believe in . CrossFit changed my life. CrossFit changed me from a kind of fit , 30 something girl with no confidence into a kick ass , strong and confident business woman. CrossFit gives you the power and the belief that you can take on anything. I love CrossFit , It is my life , It is my passion.

In 2018 I became the first person in Ireland to Pass the Certified CrossFit Trainer exam . The reason I pursued the level 3 is because I wanted to increase my knowledge. It was a no brainer really. Anyone who would like to be a master of their craft should want to seek the highest qualification possible. As soon as the Level 4 becomes available I will be applying for this also. Studying for the level 3 has had a massively positive impact on our affiliate , our community and our coaches.

“Life is not always going to be a bed of Roses , but because CrossFit makes you Strong , not just physically but more  importantly mentally Strong , you will be able to handle whatever life throws at you. CrossFit and the community it brings with it, will give you the strength and the confidence to change your life for the better.
I know because it happened to me. I know because I have seen people’s lives change here at CrossFit West Dublin”
