Have joined a gym a while ago. Am going 3 times a week early in the morning. Would like to share my experience so far (except pool since don't need it):
premisses are not great, have not seen clean (vacuum cleaned, dusted off, equipment neat in places) gym since joined;
no natural sunlinght, windows are blanked out;
showers are grey cement walls with 2 bulbs to light up half dozen cabins;
100+ tiny lockers even though the gym would ever hold max 50 people;
most equipment and gym itself is well worn out quite badly (have seen some small restoration works in progress though);
music sometimes quite loud and cheap (pop techno style); no possibility to change (other gyms allow members to play their own tunes if appropriate);
only 1 staff member from opening unti 8:00 - 8:30am so if going early morning will not get any assistance with the equipment;
hard to nearly impossible to get assesment done Mon-Fri after work hours;
all classes are mainly between 9-5 Mon-Fri or shortly after, so if doing office hours no chance to use them;
staff is ok, no all well trained but decent enough
membership is relativelly cheap
pool area seams big and handy (although haven't used it)
All in all if you're in good health and have your training set + have your own MP3 player and if you are looking for cheap gym in Tallaght this is the one. But if you need nice bright and clean premisses with friendly staff that can make a suitable workout or fitness programme within 1 week - go elsewhere.
What do you think?
