1. Pay as you go classes in Gloucester St. Gym

Mark Lacey and his team run daily classes in this gym just off Townsend St. Lacey is a super fit triathlete whose energy & enthusiasm are contagious. Try out one of his lunchtime spin classes, circuits or an early morning TRX class. If this doesn’t get you moving nothing will.

2. Dublin City Council Leisure & Sport Centres

Find your local city-run gym or swimming pool. The Markiewicz is near Trinity College and has a range of pay as you go classes or individual gym sessions for about €6 a pop. There’s a 25 metre pool if that’s more your thing too.

3. The YMCA on Aungier Street

Another pay as you go option and at €5 this one is even better value. Classes are €6.

4. Go for a run

Many joggers think Trinity College is the only city centre option for lunchtime jogging, but if you’re not keen on having an audience try Ringsend Park. It’s quieter & one lap of the main circuit is a tidy 1km, handy for keeping track of how far you’ve gone.

5. Dublin Bikes

It’s not going to get the heart rate pumping but if it’s a bit if fresh air you’re after why not grab a Dublin Bike? Head for Sandymount to the south or Clontarf cycle path to the north and get a bit of sea air into your lungs.

6. Pay as you go Spinning

This craze has taken America by storm and pay as you go spinning studios like Soulcycle charge $35 bucks a go. Luckily Andy Kenny does lunchtime spin classes for a much more modest €9. His gym is on Pearse Street, not near Trinity College. What’s more, your first spin class is free!
