Tiernan Dillon of Project Man will take part in a Facebook Live Q&A on the WicklowNews.Net page on Tuesday, 15 March.
The men’s health coach will be live from 5pm answering questions from you, our readers. From mindset to weight loss and protein, Tiernan wants your questions.
While he predominantly works with men, Tiernan is inviting women to also submit their questions as he says fat loss is universal.
“There’s a lot of noise out there in the fitness industry, there’s a lot of information online and it can be very, very confusing,” Mr Dillon says. “My job is to simply that.”
Tiernan’s company Project Man is as a result of his own weight loss and fitness journey, as he recalls how ten years ago he assumed to get healthy and fit he just needed protein powder and to go to the gym.
He says because he wasn’t educated on calories, protein and energy balance he had many “failed attempts” at getting in shape.
“There is so much nonsense out there in the fitness industry specifically with supplements and fitness gadgets telling you how many calories you burned in a session,” Tiernan said.
“If people knew how many calories they actually burn in an hour I bet they would consider trying something different, something they actually enjoy.”
The Bray native says weight loss starts with food – with exercise and training only complimenting the work put into smart food choices.
As he became more interested in weight loss and general wellbeing, it eventually became Tiernan’s job, which he has been doing for the past five years.
Project Man is a place where men can go to learn life-long skills that will “keep them in shape for the rest of their lives” says Mr Dillon, while adding that weight loss is “very female dominated”.
“I have worked with hundreds of men and helped them finally make lasting changes with their own health and fitness journey and really just be for them the guy I needed in my life 10 years ago,” he said.
Project Man is tailored to each individual’s own needs and goals. For more information click here.
