Local born and bred businessman, Ross Norton from Perrystown opens a new state-of-the-art fit4less gym in Drimnagh this Thursday 27 July; creating seven local jobs in the process and significant investment into the local area.
With years of experience within the fitness arena, highly qualified personal trainer Ross Norton and his team are putting the finishing touches to the Fit4Less complex in Lansdowne Gate Business Centre.
The 8,500 sqft gym has two floors focused on providing the most comprehensive mix of fitness solutions. With two private studios, it means other classes can run simultaneously, including spin, bums & tums, yoga, HIIT, boxercise and kickercise to name a few. It also houses top of the range Precor equipment and a dedicated strength and conditioning studio.
Speaking on the opening Ross said: “This won’t just be another gym where people come and just jump on the equipment.
“Our dedicated and qualified team of instructors, each with their own special skillset, will be there on the floor at all times and will help people achieve their goals. It doesn’t matter if they have never been in a gym before, and need showing how to use the equipment and see what the classes involve, or if they are advanced gym users, our team will be able to cater for all needs, and there will always be someone available on the floor.
Ross added: “Lots of people join gyms and soon fall out of love with it. We want to change that with our varied mix of classes and workshops that help people understand more about exercise, diet and stress, so they can get the most out of their gym membership.
“As a local boy, it is great to be opening my first gym in the area and offering a cost-effective way for residents to improve their overall health and wellbeing.”
Ross will oversee the day-to-day operations of club and is opening this franchise with business partner Rory O’Shaughnessy. Rory has returned to Ireland in 2015, following five years in Australia. He previously operated a successful Subway franchise in OZ and is no strange to how successfully franchising can work; but along with Ross believes énergie Ireland, operators of Fit4Less in Ireland, presented the most comprehensive and support-focused franchise model in Ireland.
