PMG introduction video

PMG strength and performance are an athlete performance training system based in Co. Armagh Northern Ireland. Our goal is to ensure your results are our priority. The PMG strength and conditioning methods originated due to the surplus of cookie cutter programs that lack measurement of performance to help determine whether improvements are being achieved and whether changes need to be made to the program. With over 10 years strength and conditioning experience in Gaelic football, hurling, camogie, soccer, Olympic weightlifting, sprint performance, triathlon training and general health and fitness, head coach Peter McGill has the experience, knowledge and tool box of training tools to ensure you reach those desired results. We believe that athletes can make improvements with the correct training intervention in place. So whatever your training goals we can help you reach them.

From GAA performance training to rehab and fitness.

We offer a diverse range of services to suit most individuals. From team sports performance training to rehabilitation exercises and remote coaching on a 1 to 1 basis and body recomposition. Whether you chose to train with us in the gym or online, our programs will be designed towards your individuals needs. As a result you’ll be given a service that is tailored to your needs and specific goals. Your goals will be determined at your initial consultation.
