Members Summer Party

Our member’s summer party took place at the Blue Room in the Dean Hotel on the 9th June. It was an amazing night in which staff and members get the opportunity to let their hair down together away from the club. From champagne on arrival, to a live private DJ spinning tunes until late – we have to say members and staff a like had a ball!

Behind The Scenes At The Dartry Health Club June 2018

New equipment

Due to the ever increasing popularity in our group exercises classes we have purchased new equipment for them. These include heavier weights for Body Pump and Strength and Endurance. Yoga bands for Yoga, Pilates and Synergise. We have also bought new equipment for our pool based classes. Our new Aqua classes have been a huge success, so we will be adding additional classes in the September timetable. If you have any suggestions for our timetable please forward them to fitness@thedartryhealthclub.ie.

Maintenance

In June we refurbished the front entrance of the club. New chip bark has been put down and we have cut back on most of the ivy and overgrowing trees. We also power washed the cobbles and granite slabs to give it a more polished look.

We have changed a number of the men’s showers and new dispensers will be added over the next week or so. New controllers will also be installed over the next two weeks. This will give a better balance to shower temperatures during peak times.

New additions to the team

There has been a few staff changes in June. Jim is our new lifeguard. Jim who is also a part time comedian has shown great enthusiasm since taking the role. He really makes a massive difference not just during swimming classes but also for the day to day running of the pool. Lucas who has been part of the club care team for a number of years has moved to a fulltime position as a group and private swim instructor. Liam who is studying Computer Science has taking over his previous position.

On a side note, I’d like to congratulate Dave and his wife Claire, on the birth of their first child Oliver who was born on the 22nd of June.
