Established in 2017 by Matty Costello, GSP Gym is a strength training facility based in Ballybane Industrial Estate, on the outskirts of Galway City.
The gym was initially opened with the aim of creating a high quality coaching environment with a variety of specialist equipment specifically for strength athletes.
6 years on and 1 pandemic later, it has not only become the home of Galway Strongman & Powerlifting Club producing several national, international and world champions but also a facility that helps everyday people become better versions of themselves.
Ayshea Ullah joined as a coach in 2018. Ayshea is an avid promoter of health, wellbeing and female empowerment through sport and is Ireland’s leading female strength athlete holding the title of Irelands strongest woman for 5 years running and Worlds Strongest Masters Woman '21 as well holding various strongwoman & powerlifting records. She has represented Ireland internationally in both sports and has set the bar high in this country for female strength athletes.
More recently she made history by being not only the first woman in recorded history to lift the 'cloch na mban' womanhood stone in Co.Clare but also the first woman to lift the 'cloch na fir'.
Ayshea coaches all of our gym members as well as competitive strongman and strongwoman athletes. We make sure that there is a coach available should you ever need help with something, we also encourage our members to support each other in their training.
Our aim is for our members to become confident and competent in their training whilst realising their potential and improving their overall health.
All of our members receive coaching and a training program. Our coaches are always available to help so you will never be left stranded in our gym.
Programmes can be tweaked to suit the individual if needed as we know that one size doesn’t always fit all! We are a community driven gym and encourage members to support each other whenever possible, this not only makes training more enjoyable but leads to better results.
Gym membership starts at €80 per month
