Swim-A-Song Programme

In association with Swim Ireland, we run a Swim-a-Song programme for young children and parents. Swim-a-Song is specially designed for babies from 4 months to approximately 48 months of age and gives parent and child enormous enjoyment while introducing an important life-skill. Swim-a-Song is step one in Swim Ireland's development pathway and provides an excellent foundation for a lifetime of swimming. Swim-a-Song is proudly supported by the Irish Sports Council through the Women in Sport initiative.
The programme runs over a period of 6 weeks, with each session lasting 45mins in the water. Our experienced swim teacher will guide the parents and children through the activities in a fun and safe manner. Each participant receives a Parent Pack to practice at home.

Social programme

Throughout the year, we organize various events for our members. The highlight of the year is the annual members’ summer party. This is great fun and is usually held at the end of August. All staff and members get a chance to put on our glad rags and dance the night away. There is lovely food on the night and some great spot prizes.
We offer free information nights on various topics from healthy eating, to preparing for a marathon, to healthy children’s lunches, and weight loss. These nights are usually well attended and add a social aspect to the health club.

Health Notice Board

In the gym, we have a special notice board that we use to provide you with lots of healthy tips and Information.  This is updated on a monthly basis and much of the information can be copied and taken home with you from the health club reception.  We have a regular recipe corner for those healthy and hearty meals.  We have been concentrating on soups for the last number of months as you can’t beat it for warming and goodness.
We have general health and fitness tips being updated on a regular basis.  If there is a topic that you want covered, please let us know and we will put our heads together.  We have access to huge amounts of knowledge and experience, and we want you to get the most form your visits to the Health Club.
