A facility that caters to everyone’s needs, we provide a state of the art gym boasting over 70 pieces of equipment suitable for all abilities including wheelchair access and visual aids.
At the heart of Athlone Institute of Technology, we cater to many students looking to work on fitness goals, using the facility for college work, taking on students as work experience, doing regular staff health checks, donating memberships as prizes to local raffles and much more.
Not only are we a gym, we provide a World Class International indoor arena with a 200m track, attracting professional athletes from all over the world. This is proven as we are in the top 20 of 600 world indoor meets.
Our outdoor 400m running track also draws in a crowd with running clubs and Park Run using it weekly, and we were proud to host the International Wheelchair and Amputee Junior World Games last summer, an event for wheelchair and amputee youths.
Also outside you will see our FIFA 2 star all weather pitch hosting many tournaments, games and college training sessions.
Moving away from our running tracks, let’s get a closer insight to our gym and studios.
Our gym is an open floor plan that spans out into different sections from a warm up and stretch area, free weights area, cardio area, machine weights both plate loaded and cable, and also a power rack area including racks and platforms. At the front door is the reception area where our instructors are there to greet you and answer any queries you may have. Gym inductions, fitness assessments and personalised programs are available free with membership giving everyone that comes through the doors the best opportunity and support to work towards their fitness goals.
Our studios are bright and inviting making the nervous beginner feel right at home in our fitness classes. All classes are led by our professional instructors and all adapted so that our beginner can learn and also that our skilful member can be pushed through their paces.
