“We’ve not just built a gym, we’re intent on creating a community”
said Seamus Crowe, Owner of District, and seasoned fitness industry professional.
Following a €3.5 million investment, District, a new concept in health and leisure has opened in Cork City. The 48,000 sq. ft premises features state-of-the art-facilities including a 25metre swimming pool, a fully kitted out gym with prestigious Precor equipment, a suite of studios dedicated to functional fitness, spin, and wellness, three astro-turf pitches, squash courts, a beauty salon, café, creche and sports clinic.
The launch of District Health & Leisure has created at least 40 full and part-time roles, with all staff coming from strong sporting, fitness and wellness backgrounds.
District’s 25-metre, four lane pool offers a wide and varied selection of activities including swimming lessons, aqua aerobics, triathlon training and pool parties. High Performance Swim Coach Eilís Burns is on hand to share her 30+ years of experience to work with District members to improve their swimming technique, while the beautifully modern sauna and steam room offers members the opportunity to relax, and rejuvenate, after a workout, or a long day in the office.
“Our fully inclusive approach to fitness and wellness is reflected in the comprehensive variety of classes, workshops and treatments available at District.”
“There’s already been intense interest in District, and we’re really looking forward to welcoming new members through our doors,” said Seamus. “Whether you’re here for a sprint, a swim, a smoothie or a salon treatment, you’re in for a warm welcome.”
With a variety of individual and corporate membership packages available, District is now open to the public. Visit www.district.ie for more information.
