The Press Up Hospitality Group has moved into the health and fitness industry with the launch of a chain of "luxury" fitness clubs - Power Gym.

Power's first three sites - at the Mayson on North Wall Quay, The Dean Dublin and The Dean Cork - opened this week with more locations to be announced in the coming months.

The Press Up team and Power Gym aims to create 92 jobs over the next 12 months.

Each club includes a gym floor, two industry-leading concept studios, a hydrotherapy relaxation pool, a steam room, a sauna and changing rooms.

Ben Leonard-Kane, Press Up's Head of Health & Fitness, said the company had worked tirelessly over the past number of years to create what it believes to be "one of the best fitness club experiences in the world".

"Every aspect of Power is built to ensure that users have the most enjoyable experience whether they’re training for an Ironman, blowing off some steam or just looking to unwind. With lockdowns, it’s been a longer wait than anticipated but now we can’t wait to welcome and get to know our members," he added.
