After Vinny’s running career ended through injury, he decided to put the same passion he had for competing into helping other sportspeople avoid injury and maximise their potential. Vinny brings a holistic approach to his treatments and understands the physical needs, and more importantly the psychological needs of his patients on the table.

Vinny also teaches his extremely successful running camps in the Dublin and Ashbourne areas all year round. He was the first person to teach such classes in Dublin, and has helped thousands of runners achieve their personal bests.
