Dublin: 7 °C Tuesday 20 April, 2021

This Irish 'personal trainer' fooled a lot of people with a brilliant Instagram sponsored post

The fitfam has gone too far.

IRISH FIT FAM is an almost cult-like online community.

It’s full of enviable abs, protein shakes, smoothie bowls, a million hashtags, and… sponcon.

One Dublin man is taking the piss out of it all. Enter personal trainer Josh Quinn.

He caused some waves with his most recent sponsored post…


‘How does this align with his brand?’ we all screamed

The post was plastered all over social media and Reddit, but not many quite saw it for what it was

A massive joke.

Josh’s whole Instagram seems to be a parody of your typical Instagram personal trainer, and the subtlety is key.

It also raises a lot of questions as to why so many people thought it could be legit.

He teaches us to never settle

After a busy month of travelling ✈️ & #meetings & #events I'm finally getting back into my rhythm. Prep is going well for the SIR-BULKS-A-LOT ⚔️ November meet-up in Cincinnati 🇺🇸 Like I said, it's going well... but am I satisfied? No, because I'm NEVER SATISFIED ❌ When you're satisfied you get lazy, sloppy, complacent - you lose what makes you sharp, and you lose the ability to make brave decisions in both the gym AND the #businessworld 👔 If you wanna be happy, that's fine... But satisfied? NOT ON MY WATCH ⌚️ On with the show. Hope everyone's having a great Friday 👌😎#TGIF #prep #sirbulksalot #meetup #cincinnati #motivation #fridaymotivation #bravery #lessstress #moresuccess #businessman #businessacumen #travel #gettingitdone #influencer #personaltrainer #pt #joshquinnfitness #jqfitnessfam #gym #dublin #ireland #worldwide

LISTEN to your trainer when they give you advice on the buzz health trend of the moment

He gets his community in on 500 day challenges

He even gets the odd inspirational quote and haters rant in there

Seems to be a lot of #haters out there at the moment and a lot of backstabbing going on in the industry. Lot of people obviously get jealous because they don't look as good as me or have a successful business or as many Instagram followers 📱or whatever their problem is. It's important to remember that we all get caught up in this life but it's what's on the inside that counts and I'm genuinely a nice guy. All I can do is take it in my stride and take JQ Fitness further and further because if you really want something all you have to do is work hard and stick to the program and business plan for whatever your dreams are. Don't let anyone ever tell you you're wasting your time or no one cares. It worked for me so I guarantee that it probably will for you too 🙂💪#tuesdaypositivity #chaseyourdreams #grabyourdreams #neverletgo #achieveyourgoals #hihaters #backstabbing #bitching #program #businessplan #startup #instagram #iphone #joshquinnfitness #jqfitnessfam #personaltrainer #gym #ireland

Don’t forget the protein powder discount code

Excited to announce the new JQ Fitness Protein Powder hits the shelves tomorrow. I've spent a long time developing the formula and we've arrived at something I'm really happy with and I think it's going to help a lot of people get to where they need to get. When I was skinny and sweeping floors and getting the bus 🚌 everywhere and people thought I was a joke I just kept my eye on the prize because one day I knew I'd have my own protein powder. I've learned to never listen to the #haters because it gets you nowhere. This is more than a protein powder this is a revolution. Thanks to all the #jqfitnessfam for the support and hope you all enjoy using it 💪 DISCOUNT CODE: 25777345657 (just say it to the guy in the shop) ✅👍#joshquinnfitness #proteinpowder #gains #workout #hatersaremymotivaters
