Meet the FIT ID Team.

 

FIT ID is brought to you by brother and sister Connor and Lynsey Smyth.

 

Connor and Lynsey have worked together for a number of years on some very exciting projects. Now is the time for Connor and Lynsey to use their experience and expertise to HELP YOU!

Since 2017, professional Irish dancer Connor and personal trainer Lynsey have been putting dancers through their paces with their Irish dance fitness class 'FitFest', in County Down, N Ireland. 

Under Lynsey's guidance and expertise, they worked together in Connor's preparation before appearing on UK TV Show 'SAS: Who Dares Wins' where civilians are put through a condensed version of Special Forces Selection to see if they have what it takes. Lynsey put Connor through a gruelling program ensuring he was in the best possible physical shape before taking on the monumental challenge.

Connor.

 

Connor is a professional Irish dancer and has been touring extensively with 'Lord of the Dance' since 2013. Connor's highlights include performing on London's West End and on Broadway, New York alongside Michael Flatley. 

In 2020, Connor applied for the series 'SAS: Who Dares Wins' wanting to challenge the stereotypes and stigma around male dancers. Connor beat over 44,000 applicants to become one of the 21 civilians to take on the course. Connor, representing the Irish dancing world aimed to show the fitness, discipline, resilience, physical and mental strength of Irish dancers. He wanted to help young upcoming male dancers that struggle with the stigma around their sport showing that male dancers are tough and powerful. Connor went on to WIN the Series and pass the course showcasing the physical and mental strength of Irish dancers.

Connor is a Level 2 Qualified Fitness Instructor and is passionate about inspiring the next generation of Irish Dancers. Connor says "Your body and mind are capable of so much more than we think, I want to draw on my experiences to help YOU become the best version of yourself."

Lynsey.

 

Lynsey's enthusiasm and passion for health and fitness flourished from a very young age starting Irish dancing at the age of 4. Lynsey graduated with BSc Honours in Sport and Exercise Sciences and is a Level 3 Qualified Personal Trainer helping clients change their lives for the past 5 years. 

Lynsey had her first experience of touring professionally when she joined the cast of 'Michael Flatley's Feet of Flames' in Taiwan at the end of 2020. Lynsey is also a part-time lecturer in Sport & Fitness, working in this field for the last three years.

Having moved from the Festival Dance tradition to CLRG Lynsey realised that strength training is a vital component that goes hand in hand with improving performance.

Lynsey says "I want to help educate dancers about the benefits of strength based training, as I know this can help so many dancers improve their dancing and reach their full potential. I myself have been through this and I watched my dancing go from strength to strength with a combination of strength based work and dance practice."
