Meet the MAX Mentors

The  MAX Founders and Directors will personally mentor you through the Diploma and Advanced Diploma programmes and into your career as a successful Personal Trainer, Fitness Professional and fitness business owner.

This means you will not be sitting in a classroom and getting general information because your mentoring will be specific to your goals and individual to your needs.

Kerry and Rowena McEvoy and Steve Barry collectively have more than 80 years of experience in the Fitness Profession, Fitness Business and in Banking and Finance. It is this experience that will make your personalised mentoring effective, rewarding, memorable and fun.
