Keeping up their fitness is a priority for Irish rugby players after they retire. They are used to the benefits of exercise and the endorphin rush that helps them to feel confident and good about themselves. It can be detrimental to retired players to just stop exercising both from a physical and a mental point and can even lead to depression.
Gordon D’arcy is only retired 5 months however he has no intentions of hanging up his fitness boots. We are delighted to welcome him along with his Irish team mates to The Dartry Health Club in Rathgar where they can train in comfort and amongst friends and family.
In a recent article about his retirement, Gordon discusses just how important keeping fit at The Dartry Health Club is to him.
‘We are delighted to have Gordon and the other players training at The Dartry Health Club. Our members love to see them training and they are just so polite and friendly. It is fantastic to see them keeping fitness in their lifestyle and sharing it with their family and friends”, Ciara Lefroy, Director of Iconic Health Clubs
