Niall Horan, Niall James Horan in real life, is an Irish singer best known for being one of the members of the famous London-based English-Irish pop boy band One Direction. He was born on 13th of September, 1993 in Mullingar, County Westmeath, Ireland. He is the son of Bobby and Maura Gallagher. A student of Christian Brothers School, an exclusive boy school, he used to participate at their school’s choir which mostly performs during Christmas season. Before he got famous, he used to be a local performer, usually singing in his homeland. It was in the year 2010 when he auditioned solo for the British TV singing competition The X Factor season 7. Although he didn’t make it to the Boys Category, he was joined together with the other boys namely Harry Styles, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, and Louis Tomlinson–forming a group that led them to perform at Wembley Arena in London. Eventually judges Simon Cowell and Nicole Scherzinger decided to put them together in a band and gave them the opportunity to shine and come up with a name One Direction. That was the start of Niall and the rest of the guys’ insurmountable fame.
To come up with a pretty good shape, Niall regularly goes to the gym and train with his fitness coach Mark Jarvis. According to a source, “Niall, Louis and Zayn have been working out with separate trainers, but they’re getting into it, too.”
In addition, his trainer advices him to eat balanced and healthy foods. “Their trainers have insisted they eat healthier food, and it helps that they had healthy catering for the UK leg of their tour,” said the source.
