Exciting Changes at Dartry

We held a whopping 6 days of training for our team for our current and Exciting new water based classes. We are committed to maintaining the highest standard of classes with monthly team training and up-skill days. These new classes will begin in January and we are confident that these will add extra benefits to your current training regime. As always we ask that you book in using your Iconic Health Club app.

We are undergoing a number of exciting new changes to the club in December.

Building work on our new reception area is starting this weekend, with new lighting and furniture being delivered throughout January. The gym will be closed from Sunday 16th – Tuesday 18th December to allow for this work to commence. Works on the BMS system is almost complete and it has already made a huge difference to the pool air and water temperature.

Our new treadmills will be delivered soon. We have received the first of these treadmills this week and seven more are to be delivered next week.

We have also invested over €50k in new machine weights. This equipment is being made by the Italian manufacture Canali System. From as young as 16 years to advanced age, from the Olympic athlete to the amateur, and women who don’t want to bulk up in the gym, the Canali System offers a training system that is suitable for all.

We have also ordered new mats for the stretching area, additional 4kg dumbbells for Studio 1, extra benches for the weights room, new dumbbell weights and an abdominal bench for the weights area also. To be shown how to use these pieces why not book in to meet with one of our trainers. Did you know that you can meet with one of our team every 4-6 weeks to ensure that you are on track to achieving your goals. Ask at reception today.
Heading into the new year, we would ask all members to maintain proper gym etiquette while in the club. Returning weights after use, carrying sweat towels, wiping down equipment and sharing machines are just some of the small habits that make The Dartry Health Club an enjoyable place to train. Let’s work together to keep these practices in place.

Finally, the team and I would like to wish you and your loved ones a wonderful Christmas holiday and as always we look forward to working with you in 2019 to achieve your health and fitness goals.

White Flag Awards

Iconic Health Club award the National Quality Standard of ‘Outstanding’.

We were delighted to attend the inaugural NQSA awards last week. The awards are designed to acknowledge excellence in the Leisure, Fitness and Hotel Leisure facilities. Ireland Active, the representative body for the Leisure, Health & Fitness Industry, awarded the top Leisure, Fitness and Hotel Leisure facilities across the country at the National Quality Standard Awards (NQSA) at the annual awards ceremony on 16th November at Druids Glen Resort.

The NQSA, is the most sought-after and respected accolade in the leisure and fitness industry, and is awarded to facilities that meet the operational standards for leisure and fitness facilities across 250 quality-based criteria. The standard is designed to encourage continuous improvement within the sector and recognises facilities for their remarkable standards in the areas of safety, hygiene, customer service and human resources. The NQSA are the only industry specific award for the leisure, health and fitness sector in Ireland.

The Awards were held in conjunction with Ireland Active’s annual conference, where some of the most notable names in the industry nationally and internationally, spoke on topics relevant to leisure, health and fitness.

Speaking on the event, Conn McCluskey, CEO, Ireland Active said: “We are delighted to host the inaugural Ireland Active National Quality Standard Awards, having rebranded the awards this year after 15 years as the White Flag Awards. The awards serve to recognise the deserving recipients for their hard work in setting the bar for the highest level of standards possible in their leisure, fitness and hotel leisure facilities who play such a significant role in the health and well-being of the country. We are thrilled to acknowledge each facility for their outstanding accomplishments in the areas of safety, hygiene, customer engagement and human resources.”

The keynote speaker at this year’s event was Colin Milner, CEO & founder of International Council on Active Ageing addressing the important contribution the health, leisure and fitness industry can play in keeping people active into older age.

Manager’s Corner

New Equipment

We are delighted to announce that the first delivery of our new equipment has arrived. This includes 5 Octane Cross trainers and a Zero Gravity Runner.

Dartry Health Club new cardio equipment

A plyometric box and resistance bands have also been added to the Strength and Stretching areas.



We will have eight new Freemotion Treadmills being delivered to us at the start of December while we will also be replacing the older dumbbells at the beginning of next year.

White Flag Awards

During the summer we completed the annual audit for the National Quality Standard in health and fitness. The rigorous audit ensures that we consistently adhere to only the highest standard in management, safety, hygiene and customer service. We delighted to let you that that we the achieved an Outstanding Award which is the highest awards given to health clubs. Our sister clubs Icon Health Club and 1escape health club also achieved this standard which is a fantastic achievement for Iconic Health Clubs.

Building Management System

We have invested €20k in a new Building Management System for the club. The BMS will give us far more control over the air temperature in the club. This has been a problem during the winter months particularly by poolside and the changing rooms and began when the club operated as LA Fitness. After significant investigation by Iconic Health Clubs we are now confident that this large investment will rectify the air temperatures going forward.

Gym closure dates

A small reminder from last months’ newsletter that due to exciting upgrade works the gym will be closed from December 16 – 18th. This is to carry out a refurbishment of our reception area and also the corridors on the ground floor.  Don’t forget that you will have full access to Icon Health Club and also 1escape health club during this time to ensure that you can maintain your fitness training.

As always, if you have any feedback or suggestions, please do not hesitate to contact me.  I hope that I will see you all at the members Christmas party where we toast the Christmas season together.

Yours in health & fitness,

Sean Gavin

General Manager
