On this weeks member spotlight we speak with the friendly giant that is Lorcan Carey. Lorcan is a child at heart but a man mountain like something from game of Thrones and when he can play around with 100kg push presses he definitely isn’t someone you want to mess with. Funny story actually, I asked Lorcan was he playing a basketball match one week only a few weeks ago and he said he was playing rugby and the opposition where HUGE he said, I laughed out loud as I wondered what the opposition must have said about himself. Anyway, here is the man himself, thanks for taking the time out for the this buddy; * Name – Lorcán Carey * Age – 27 * Occupation Bartender * How long have to been at Guerilla Fitness ? Nearly a year. * What do you enjoy about Guerilla ? The community and the atmosphere in the gym and that no matter how good or bad you are doing in a workout people are there pushing you on. * What is your favourite and least favourite movements ? Favourite moments would be accomplishing a new skill or movement. Least favourite are anything to do with Thrusters! * What is your biggest achievement so far ?
