Who we are

Aspire was founded in 2007 by Joe Quinn.  Since then our commitment to improving fitness & performance has helped sports teams and athletes from a wide range of disciplines to achieve excellence. Aspire has also helped innumerable clients reach their individual fitness goals through tailored plans, memberships, personal training and classes.

Having completed a B.S.C in Sports and Exercise Science at the University of Limerick, Joe realized that there was an opportunity to apply Exercise science to tailor plans for the needs of elite athletes as with all individual members aiming to reach their health & fitness goals.

However, Joe’s background extends far beyond the science aspect of the sporting industry. An all-round sports person, Joe has represented his beloved Offaly at every level in Gaelic Football. A county which he has captained at both minor and under 21 level before going on to represent his county at senior level for seven years.

Athletics was another sport where Joe excelled in as a youth. During his athletic career he held junior All-Ireland titles for 400m hurdles, and both 4 x 100 and 4 x 400m relays.

During his studies in the University of Limerick Joe worked with the Leinster Senior rugby squad for 8 months before becoming a regional fitness advisor for Leinster in the Midlands region.

Since starting Aspire Joe has worked with numerous clubs some of which include Toomevara Senior Hurlers, Coolmine Senior Rugby and Padraig Pearses Senior Football.

At inter-county level Joe was the head strength & conditioning coach for Westmeath Senior Footballers in 2012 – 13 and again in 2018. Offaly Senior Hurlers in 2010 and 2014, Sligo Senior Footballers in 2014, Galway Camogie 2012 – 13 and Offaly Camogie in 2011 and 2018 – 19. Offaly Ladies Football 2021.

On an individual basis Joe has worked with Irish Paralympian Declan Slevin for six years.
