About Us

Welcome to Gutsy World

Gutsy World is a health, fitness and wellness community, founded by Nutritional Therapist Glenda Dowling and her husband Billy, a personal trainer.

Gutsy World is a community of like minded members, which covers everything from clean, real food recipes and meal plans, home video workout programs for beginner, intermediate and advanced and wellness advice for the mind, body and soul.

Our ‘check-in’ members get to check in with a Gutsy Consultant weekly and get weighed on a Body Composition scales.

We at Gutsy World are health centred. Our mission is to achieve complete wellness in a realistic way, through real, whole food, moving, hydration and rest.  There is no pressure and no fad diets. By just providing you with the tools you need, and encouraging you to share our passion, we can help you to become the best version of yourself.

Once we begin to understand more about our bodies, our food and our overall wellbeing, we can then begin to see the ability we have to make a positive impact in our day to day lives!

The Gutsy World headquarters is based in Buncrana in the north west of Ireland, but we also offer an online membership option and online private group forum.  This makes it really easy to join, and check in with our consultants, regardless of your location.

 

Glenda & Billy

Billy Dowling, Fitness Expert & Personal Trainer

Billy Dowling is the co-founder of Gutsy World, and husband to Glenda.  The couple have two beautiful boys, Jack, aged two, and Dean, aged one.

From a young age, Billy was very active, cycling, playing Gaelic football, hurling, soccer and attending the gym.  In 2001 at the age of 21, Billy emigrated to Australia after completing an electrician apprenticeship.

It was in beautiful, sunny Sydney where Billy met his wife Glenda, and he also got to know a lot more about fitness.  It was here it became his passion, and with a booming fitness industry in Australia, Billy tried everything from big box gyms, bootcamps, boxing, kickboxing, personal training and functional training.

Billy spent the next ten years honing his skills and gaining experience. He decided it was time to follow his passion, and trained to become a personal trainer.  In early 2015, Billy graduated as a Master Trainer with the Australian Institute of Fitness

Following the birth of their son Jack, Billy and Glenda felt it was time to return home to Ireland.  In July 2015 Billy opened Seriously Fit, his first fitness club in Buncrana, County Donegal.

The last two years of building the business have been a great success, and Billy feels highly passionate about helping people live healthier, more active lives, through fast, effective workouts and good nutrition.

‘My belief is that anyone can exercise. A good attitude, work to your own intensity levels and with consistency in your exercise and nutrition, you will see the results you are after’
