Take me to church - a look inside Dublin's newest and most anticipated gym

FlyeFit’s new facility on George’s Street is seriously impressive.

GOOD THINGS COME to those who wait and certainly FlyeFit’s new gym on George’s Street has been worth the wait.

The new 20,000 square foot facility opened for the first time today as the low-cost gym chain continues to spread its wings and establish itself as a leading player in a congested market.

Its George’s Street gym, the fifth in the chain, has been a long time coming after they ran into difficulty with Dublin City Council when transforming the old church building.

However, Flyefit and director Jackie Skelly, eventually got the green light to open its doors and it’s difficult not to be impressed by the facilities on offer.

It’s been built so that many of the old features of the church are still very much part of the building while the three floors have been furnished with the very best equipment and free-weights.

Before the official opening, 600 people had joined but that figure will soar over the coming weeks.

One of the striking elements of the gym is the large amount of space, although it remains a work in progress with builders scurrying around frantically during The42‘s tour.

From the moment you walk in, there is an energetic vibe about the place and the viking turned graffitied theme complements the sense of history which the building is steeped in.

The fitness studios are vast and airy with members allowed the freedom to go about their workout in space and comfort – but we can’t imagine it will be spacious for too long.

Starting at €29 per month, and €259 annually, membership prices are reasonable, particularly given what’s on offer once you step inside the doors.

It’s still early days but the initial impression is that this George’s Street gym, considering its location, will become extremely popular with fitness aficionados very quickly.
