Peter O’ Halloran at the Irish Fitness Industry Awards

Everyone is talking about those so-called “influencers” nowadays, they’re the ones who change the world. Based on what they wear, use, do and share on their social media they influence teens and other Instagram users.

On Instagram, we’ve got the famous huge influencers with 1 million followers, but we also got smaller influencers which remain undiscovered.

You know how it is when you’re endlessly searching Instagram for hours for the next best thing to entertain us. Well on one of my random searches I came across a fitness profile @peterohalloran_ which caught my attention. This wasn’t like most profiles with body pictures and no substance but this guy was using videos with humour and science to get his point across and it intrigued me.

The more I watched the more I laughed until I seen a picture of him in a military uniform. This triggered the investigative side of me. Who is this guy? Is he a soldier?

I did some research and pulled up an impressive background.

His name is Peter O’ Halloran, he is a serving soldier in the Irish army and is the CEO of PPT Fitness and Nutrition. He is a fully qualified personal trainer and nutritionist.

Not only is he a soldier but he is a sniper instructor with over 3 tours of duty to his name.
I also learned Peter is currently Ireland best fitness nutritionist.

He won Ireland’s Best Fitness Nutritionist/Dietician award at the Irish Fitness Industry Awards in 2018 and a few day later took the award for Best Use of Social Media by a Gym/Personal Trainer at the Irish Social Media Awards 2018.

Most recently Peter won the Irish fitness Industry Award for the second year in a row taking the award for Best in Fitness Nutrition 2019 at the Irish Fitness Industry Awards.

Peter has been published multiple times in Ireland and the uk for his no nonsense approach to calling out lies in the fitness industry which is what attracted me to his profile in the first place.

From what I’ve read I think this guy is the one to watch for the future. It’s hard to decipher between the lies you find on social media when it comes to fitness and nutrition but this guy seems to be a breath of fresh air bringing honesty and truth and the fact he is a sniper I’m just happy I’m a long way away from him if I ever have anything bad to say.

To check him out for yourself and make up your own mind you can find him on Instagram as
