Speedflex Q&A – Shane Murphy

Speedflex Q&A – Shane Murphy

Thursday 26th October 2017

Frequently captured dancing during his sessions on Snapchat, this month we’re getting to know Speedflex Cork’s Shane, who shares his love of football – Liverpool FC specifically..


Who is your hero/who do you look up to?

I have 2! First hero of mine would have to be Steven Gerrard as I am a massive Liverpool supporter and grew up idolising him. The passion, hard work and dedication he gave in every game he played made him a great role model. The second is more a recent person and that is Conor McGregor. The man came from being nobody who had very little to begin with but had the self-belief that he was going to be the best in the world. He trained hard every day to be the best he could and look at him today. It’s inspiring to be honest.

Where in the world would you most like to visit?

I have a few on the bucket list alright but my main two would be Ibiza and Las Vegas.

What’s your favourite film and song?

I have a few films which would be on my list. I like a lot of the Marvel superhero ones such as The Avengers and I have always enjoyed a good comedy, something to make me laugh.

Favourite song at the moment would have to be Swish Swish by Katy Perry love the beat to it and it gets me in the party mood.

If you could have any job in the world, which one would you choose?

A professional soccer player, getting paid thousands to play a sport I love – it’s a win win.

What’s the best piece of advice anyone has ever given you?

Don’t dwell on the past you can’t change it, just learn from your mistakes and move forward.

If you were stranded on a desert island and you could choose 3 things to have, what would they be?

My phone, TV with sports and movie channels and a gym to keep in shape.

You’re hosting a dinner party and can invite any 3 people (dead or alive). Who would you invite and why?

I would have to invite my two heroes Steven Gerrard and Conor McGregor just to say I met them – and Kevin Hart for the comedy factor.

What one item would you want to save if your house was on fire?

My dog!

If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?


For you, what’s the best thing about training at Speedflex?

The intensity of the sessions and the way MYZONE lets you track your effort levels and calorie burns throughout the session – it’s a great motivator.
