Can I have a trial in The Movement before joining?

It couldn’t be easier!  There are no long forms to be completed and the joining process only takes a few minutes. You can join online, through this website, using your PC or smartphone or you can simply pop into us at reception in the gym and we will get you joined up and booked in for your first assessment.

Assessment, Training & Nutrition

How do I book an assessment?

You can book an assessment by calling into us at reception, phoning us on 026 43492, sending an email to info@themovement.ie or by sending us a message on Facebook.

What does an assessment involve?

It involves one of our trainers spending one hour in the gym with you, assessing your fitness and creating a personalized training program for you. It usually begins with your weight and measures being taken (if that’s what you want), the trainer will then talk with you about what your goals are, how long you want to spend in the gym for your workout etc. and will then create your training program. They will take you through the gym showing you all the exercises on your program and the correct technique for them all so you will know exactly what you should be doing.

How much does an assessment and a training program cost?

It is completely free for every member!

How often can I get re-assessed?

You can get re-assessed and update/ change your training program every 6 week, free of charge!
