Testimonials

We do our utmost every day to provide the very best service to our clients. Here’s what a few have said so far:

So I’m taking part in the Cork MMA open 2016 representing SBG. This journey has not only been an enjoyable one for me but also life changing one. About 2 years ago I was struggling with a depression which had me out of work. After speaking with my awesome GP Sean Browne about it he said I should do something for me. Go clear my head. Go training. Go taking pictures. But to forget about all life’s troubles. Sometimes just having someone non judgemental to speak to is incredibly empowering. GPs should be everyone’s first port of call when your feeling down. If you feel like you can’t speak to your GP then you need a new GP.
I had been a keen hurler when I was younger playing for many years with St Finnbarrs but my hurling days were long gone. So I put the feelers out there about joining a gym where I could still have the team mentality. Marlene reached out and took me in and Liam og took me under his guidance. Liam is more than just a coach. He is a friend. A counselor. An advisor. A mentor. He is a huge part in the lives of many many people and sometimes people forget that. The passed 6/7 months have been truly incredible for me on both a mental and psyhical level. Honestly if I was able to speak to myself in December just gone and say you will be representing SBG in the Cork open in August then I would have probably belly laughed myself to death. But it’s true. It’s happening. I may get mangled but I’m taking part. People claim that MMA is barbaric. But for me it’s therapeutic.
For the next 6 weeks I will enter into a fight camp alongside some of the most talented and helpful athletes in the country. Let the games begin. – Roger Kennedy July 2016

 

Personal Service is an understatement here. MARLENE greets you like family when you walk in the door.
LIAM gives a class you will come out buzzing from, and worked with me through specific injuries, going above and beyond to help me continue training at kickboxing, and consoling me when I had to take a break
AARON pushes you hard and gets more out of you than you think you have.
