Darren was born and raised in Ireland in a small town called Mallow which is the town that housed the first CrossFit facility in Ireland.
Darren was an avid Rugby player and played at a regional level until the age of 17. This was where Darren first fell in love with weight training as Darren used CrossFit as his strength & conditioning methodology whilst playing rugby.
Darren has been swimming his entire life and as a competitive swimmer, it was only natural that he quickly moved into the Vogue Fitness STAMINA endurance program coaching team.
Whilst pursuing a university degree in accountancy, Darren was coaching part-time as a CrossFit coach at his local gym. Upon completion of his degree, he left coaching to pursue a career in accountancy. This was a short-lived endeavor as he always knew his passion was lied in coaching people and helping people improve through fitness.
Darren joined the team at Vogue Fitness in 2022 where he coaches at Vogue Fitness Al Raha and Vogue Fitness Rabdan.
