Maeve Kenny set up Hissy Fit in 2012 after spending more than a decade in the corporate sector. The drive for Hissy Fit was a continued passion for fitness since she was a child. She returned to college to become a Personal Trainer in 2011. From early on, Maeve participated in netball, athletics, running and later on was an avid gym-goer.
With the creation of Hissy Fit, Maeve developed a fitness and wellbeing company that would span many areas.
She qualified in Pilates in 2012 and is now an Advanced Pilates Instructor. She also qualified in 2015 as a Chi Running Coach in London.
She became the head running coach for Laya Healthcare (via Spectrum Healthcare) in 2012 and developed many running programs to meet the needs of various corporate companies across Dublin. With the success of the programs, Maeve then developed presentations on wellness, fitness and health in general and was the face of many “lunch and learns” both privately and for Laya.
In 2015, UCD contacted Maeve and offered her a position as the Pilates and PT Theory lecturer on their PT & Pilates course. Maeve still holds this position today and has trained hundreds of students to become Pilates Instructors across the country. Certified by Reps and ITEC
Hissy Fit started as just Maeve, however, it has grown into a team of experienced, loyal and professional staff. Hissy Fit would not be the business it is today without the support and backbone of the Hissy crew.
Hissy Fit Runners is another branch of the Hissy Fit tree. Since 2013 we have trained hundreds of women to run 5km, 10km half and full marathons. It’s a club like no other, it’s specifically tailored to females, it’s social, fun but at the same time, we get the job done, just ask our members.
“It’s been an incredible journey and I feel very blessed to have had the pleasure to train so many individuals to reach their health and fitness goals”
