I’m delighted to share that The Dartry Health Club were awarded National Quality Standard Outstanding award at this year’s annual White Flag ceremony which were held in Johnstown Estate.

‘Tis the most wonderful time of the year and we would love it if you could join us for our Annual Members Christmas Party. Celebrate with your team and enjoy some festive fun, mingling and drinks as we host our Christmas Party.

Get ready to fall in love with a new form of fitness. The world’s best aqua classes are now exclusively available at Iconic Health Clubs. We are delighted to introduce, Aqua Jump, Aqua Run and Aqua Combat to our class timetable.

We had another wildly successful year at the latest industry gold standard Nutramino National Health & Fitness awards scooping first prize in four categories and winning all the accolades for Gym Team of the Year.

There was huge excitement in Dartry Health Club on Wednesday January 30 when five lucky members, who had won a competition, got to work out with their favourite rugby stars including Michael Swift, Malcolm O’Kelly, Des Dillon, Mike Ross and many more.

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

Thank you to everyone that attended our Awards night! In case you missed anything, here are our winners:

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

New Equipment

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
