I’ve been going to Oakgrove S&C for a year now. The best things about it are:
– The coaching is second to none
– Everyday is different
– The box is the best in cork
– Having the sauna/steam room/pool there after a workout is the best way to recover!
I’ve been attending Oakgrove S&C classes for over 3 years. In summary I’ve found the whole experience fantastic from learning new skills, gaining strength, enhanced mobility, receiving top level instruction and doing all this while having great fun. I can honestly say that anyone who takes these classes and sticks with them will look better, feel better, have increased energy levels along with being a more confident person. I would highly recommend these classes to everyone
I’ve been coming to Oakgrove now for two years and the facilities and training here have been fantastic. It’s never too much hassle for the trainers to help out in any way they can. I have and will be recommending it to anyone looking for a complete package.
Oakgrove is a relaxed and friendly environment for anyone looking to improve their over all fitness and strength. Expert coaching keeping you on toes with interesting programs and workouts. Emphasis on good technique will give anybody a strong base to go on and achieve their targets.
My wife and I joined Oakgrove S&C three years ago as we were no longer getting as much benefit or enjoyment out of running.
The variety in Oakgrove’s programme was wonderful and had an immediate impact in making us leaner, stronger and fitter.
Diarmuid and the staff’s attention to detail in lifting technique and workouts is second to none making it a safe and easy place to train. Plus, his nutritional talks and challenges have allowed us complement our work in the gym with a clean and varied diet.
Finally, there is a real sense of community and comradery amongst all of us who attend the classes and we have made many friends through Oakgrove. I think you’ll find that most of our class actually looking forward to lung busting workouts, which is probably the best complement you could pay any gym or coach!
We would highly recommend Oakgrove S&C to all, both beginner and advanced.

Oakgrove Leisure Centre have excellent facilities and dedicated, knowledgeable staff who are committed to helping everyone reach their fitness goals.
I was mainly a treadmill runner on and off over the years. Flexibility and strength were concepts that never entered my mind in my general day to day. Purely by chance I attended a strength class on a random day – where I learnt the basics – deadlift, squat and bench. My mobility was very poor due to an office job. From their I improved my strength under the supervision of excellent coaches. I have recently got into the S&C sessions in the morning to fit into a hectic work schedule. This 100% improved my strength, flexibility, confidence and overall fitness. It’s been 2 years of improved health and I haven’t looked back.
Joined Stength & Conditioning classes in May 2016. Have noticed vast improvements in my short time there. Diarmuid and the team deliver a hands on approach. Class volume is small, so you get alot of attention during the classes. There is never any pressure to do an exercise you’re not comfortable with. The team will always find a substitute exercise that you’re more comfortable with. There is a high emphasis put on technique, which is hugely important to remain injury free. Other members are also very welcoming, and there is a good friendly atmosphere in the classes. Just joined for another 3 months!!!
