WITArena or Goldstone as a shortterm alternative to Ben Dunne until it reopens

    I'm a member of Ben Dunnes gym in waterford but it doesnt seem to be re-opening until October . I am looking to join another gym in the shortterm and both the WITArena and Goldstone seem to be the best options as they both offer no contract monthly options. I'm just wondering which is the better option. Who knows once my contract is up in Ben Dunnes I might consider my next longterm contract with one of the others

    They bloody should be, this isn't 100% yet, I'm still only really hearing rumours, but I know someone working there, and they're not confident of it reopening, but I don't think they've been officially informed yet, apparently all the equipment was pulled outta there some time ago, again all rumours

    Dunne also said in the media lately that he's unwilling to reopen until there's a vaccine, so I'd say there's a good chance he's looking at his overall business plan, and may shut some permanently, blaming it on covid, which of course is true to a degree

    Was hoping there'd be some responses to my actual query at this stage ?

    i always say try as many gyms out as you can, before committing to a longer term contract, the gym environment is radically changing at the moment, so some of those changes may not suit you at all

    Ben Dunne’s gym is actually closed for good I’m afraid lads, I was speaking to a local auctioneer and he has been asked to look for a new tenant for that unit.
