What Is Elevate Performance

This concept began as an outlet for exploring optimal human performance, which then developed into an Instagram blog, in which the aim was to decipher the overload of poor information online, in areas of training, nutrition and general health & well-being, to provide you with practical, evidence-based methods to utilise. 

The aim still remains, as does the blog, but Elevate Performance has now expanded to offer services from a network of experts in the areas of Physical training, Psychology, and Nutrition all of whom employ an evidence-based approach to learning, and are passionate about applying that knowledge in their specialist area.

We understand that sustainable improvements to health & performance are achieved by the interplay of each many different aspects, so our mission is to offer a service that considers all areas of human performance and health.

We understand the whole person, and value the individuality of each one, so the mission is to cover all corners, from physical training, nutrition and mindset to offer a bespoke service that delivers sustainable results.

Dave O'Neill BSc., MSc.

Founder and Strength & Conditioning Coach

I completed my Bachelor of Science degree in Sports Coaching & Performance before more recently obtaining a Master of Science degree in Strength & Conditioning (S&C).

While studying towards these, I have provided S&C and sports science support to a range of athletes from general fitness enthusiast to professional, in a wide array of sports such as GAA, athletics, martial arts, cycling, and horse racing.

My mission is to use the knowledge and experience I’ve gained through both playing and coaching sports – from inter-county Gaelic football, to competitive Brazilian Jiujitsu – to help improve the performance, health, and lives of other people.

My belief is that in training to sustainably improve performance or health, no single area should be neglected, and that no two people are the same.

I believe that holistic training will yield sustainable results and individualised training will optimise those results.

John O'Connor BSc., MSc.

Nutrition Consultant

I am a qualified and registered performance nutritionist and founder of Target Nutrition – an online nutrition consultancy based in Dingle, Co Kerry.

I have completed certifications in food as medicine, disordered eating in sport, sleep, and psychology of behaviour from various institutions, so I understand the impact nutrition can have on the overall health & performance of a person and their life.

So far, I’ve been lucky enough to work with numerous club teams, Kerry GAA and top AFL side Geelong Cats.

I’m an evidence-based practitioner who believes that long term success lies in education and client empowerment. I seek to translate the science for clients and athletes and present it in an understandable manner.

As connectivity and social media platforms grow worldwide, more and more people have the ability of sharing their thoughts and beliefs with the wider world.

With this, the biggest problem regarding nutritional advice offered online is that anyone can set themselves up and offer advice which leads to great risks and confusion.

I aim to help eliminate the confusion that exists in the area of nutrition as a result of social media, media, sensationalist headlines and those who are unqualified.

Jamie Blanchfield BSc.

Consultant Endurance Coach

I have a first-class honours in BSc Sports Coaching and Performance.

Through my studies I have gained vast amounts of academic and practical experience within Talent Development, Sports & Exercise Physiology, Strength and Conditioning, Coaching Practices and Sports Psychology.

I am also a qualified Cycling Ireland coach working in a consultancy role with the organisation.

My primary role is an endurance coach for road cycling, time trial and track while providing support in multiple endurance sports from Triathlon to Athletics.

For as long as I can remember I’ve had a keen interest in sport and performance, from club right up to professional.

I am a firm believer that hard work, dedication and effective individualised training can help people from every walk of life achieve their goals.

My whole philosophy of coaching revolves around the development of self-sufficient athletes by aiding and educating them in every way possible along their journey.

I have worked with a wide variety of athletes from beginner right up to professional level and hope to have played a small part in their success along that journey.

Michelle O'Connor BA., MSc.

Coaching Psychology Consultant

I have a Masters in Coaching and Coaching Psychology.

My practice in application, aims to address and optimise all areas of performance through a psychological lens.

Its theoretical application and scientific based nature enhances psychological growth and conditioning, as well as human functionality and holistic development. 

A Healthcare Professional for 8 years, my passion and work has always featured two key components: People & Performance.

Working with people from various backgrounds in Health, Education, Business and Sport, I have always had a desire to understand the core elements that lie at the heart of people, potential and development.

My experiences in Social Care ignited a curiosity to understand the principles and psychological nature of basic human functioning, human behaviour and human conditioning, and their correlating influences on areas of holistic human performance.
