Galway Daily news City Council sets strict noise requirements on new gym

One of the largest gyms in the west of Ireland will be coming to Knocknacarra as the Galway based chain The Warehouse Gym is opening a new branch at Gateway Retail Park.

The 18,000sq ft gym will be the chain’s third location in Galway alongside branches in Mervue and Oranmore, and is due to open in the second quarter of 2021.

Michael Shortall, the General Manager of The Warehouse Gym, said “As a local business, The Warehouse Gym is super excited to be opening the largest gym in the west of Ireland right here in the heart of Galway.

“Gateway Shopping Park is the perfect location for serving the health and fitness  needs of the Knocknacarra and surrounding communities.

“It’s our mission to fulfil that need by  providing a welcoming, clean and modern health club for all ages and interests,” Michael added.

Founded in 2013 the chain quickly grew in popularity due to its large selection of strength equipment, free weights, machines and cardio equipment.

The new gym in Gateway Shopping Park will host Galway’s largest selection of free weights, squat racks, cardio equipment and resistance machines.

Services offered include personal training, InBody scans, virtual coaching software and nutritional consultations which are all bookable through a mobile application.

Paddy  O’Connor of Sigma Retail Partners, Asset Manager for the park, said: “Finding the right fitness offering for our park was a key
strategy for us.”

“We wanted to ensure that we selected the right gym operator to provide the local  community and the surrounding areas with a state of the art and well-run fitness centre.”

We are so  pleased that a well-established gym in Galway will be joining our newly extended shopping park.”
