John T. Kenny – Personal Trainer, Instructor and an Advisor
Founder of Access Health & Fitness, StrongFirst Instructor, Fitness and Nutrition Adviser. I hold a true passion for Health, Well-being and Happiness. Coming from an amateur and semi-pro sports background I always wanted to be a Strength and Conditioning Coach dealing with top athletes but from personal life experiences I ended up on a path helping others with everything from Depression, Eating Disorders, Weight Loss, Chronic illness and Habits. I've a big heart and I say it as it is. No B.S!
