Gym near Dundrum

Hi. I live near Dundrum. Initially I thought to sign up with Dundrum gym but found it was closed. I have been in Benildus Gym for one year and I found it quite nice. However, it does close this month.

Does anyone know an alternative gym near Dundrum? Heard about Westwood in Leopardstown but seems quite expensive.

Cheers.

Gyms in Dundrum

There are a couple of other gyms in Dundrum, Fitworks and the atrociously named "Luschin Martin"... don't know what they're like though. Maybe try http://www.dublinbynumbers.com/index...art/areas/4/16 for a list of gyms in Dublin 16.

Thanks guys.

All of them seem decent options, but they are quite far from the luas green line, aren't they? The problem is that I don't have car. I guess I'll have to go running

True. Dartry seems close enough. I wonder if the LA gym is worth. I think I'll try their free day option.

That's true Seraphina

Anyways, now in winter is too dark to go with the bycicle (for me) and also my girlfriend does not have one, so it would be a bit of a mess.

Cheers.

There is a school on the upper Kilmacud Road which has a gym and does memberships and all that. I don't know the name of the school but I know a couple of people who use it.

They really like it cause it is not packed all the time and not full of posers.

It would be in walking distance and may suit you.

Actually I reckon you're talking about Benildus HFC. That's the gym I used to go to. Was really nice but they close it down this month due to problems with the council.

Is that a joke?

Martin Luschin is an excellent Personal Trainer and Pilates instructor based in Dublin.

Check out his website http://www.fitnecise.com/
