Ambassadors: The Squad - Gym+Coffee USA

Ambassadors: The Squad

Posted by Alison Sheehy on

As long-time collaborators with Gym+Coffee, we are over the moon to officially announce Josie McCarthy and Kate Parfrey as two of our Make Life Richer Ambassadors.

"Community, for us, is VITAL. It’s not a piece of the puzzle that comes after anything. It’s the foundation we build everything upon."

Josie + Kate met on the same personal training course and have been inseparable ever since. They kickstarted their health + fitness career offering PT sessions only, but it wasn’t long before they branched out as co-owners of a full-scale commercial facility in Ballycureen in County Cork. 

Top priority for the two women was in creating a sense of belonging saying, "Community, for us, is VITAL. It’s not a piece of the puzzle that comes after anything. It’s the foundation we build everything upon." Both agree that without the support, inclusivity and dedication to work that The Squad embodies, they’d be lost. Their mission is to bring together a group of diverse people and build a centre where “everyone is welcome, everyone has fun, they make friends and they train really, really hard.”

The Make Life Richer mantra to me, is about having a healthy mind and a healthy body. They don’t work one without the other” 

Both came to health + wellness from varied backgrounds. Josie studied Early Years Education and Kate came from a construction management background, spending a few years working in the mines in Australia. Their focus now is to address holistic health and wellness, guiding their community’s fitness from the inside, out. Says Josie, “The Make Life Richer mantra to me, is about having a healthy mind and a healthy body. They don’t work one without the other.” 

The Squad have been with Gym+Coffee as pals + collaborators in our Summer Stretch Series and we are delighted to see what we can achieve as we bring our communities closer together. Stay tuned for lots more from these two dynamos in the coming weeks!
