Nothing leisurely about this job!

This week we talked to the newly appointed Leisure Club Manager of Oriel House Hotel Gym Jamie Cronin about what the leisure centre offers and his plans for the role.

Q.Tell us about your role :

A. In my role as Leisure Club Manager, I have the opportunity to meet all kinds of people who use our club for a variety of reasons. From hotel guests in for a relaxing swim to elite athletes in for a workout, we see it all.

Because of this, it’s very important to us to keep high standards in our club with regards to equipment, cleanliness and quality of services provided.

Q. How long are you in this role and working in this industry?

A. I was recently appointed to the manager position in Talbot Fitness Ballincollig and have been very eager to get going.

Having been in the industry for over 10 years, I was delighted to be able to put my stamp on the club by introducing new services for members and guests as well as coordinating new equipment to keep up to date with the latest trends.

My goal in this role is to provide exactly what our members need, be it high quality personal training sessions in the gym or a relaxing atmosphere in the pool.

Q. Tell us about 3 things that are available at Oriel House leisure centre?

A. We pride ourselves in making the effort to offer high quality services here at Talbot Fitness Ballincollig including both adult and children’s swimming lessons, a wide range of fitness classes and a comprehensive personal training programme to help people achieve their goals no matter what they are.

Q. Tell us what a day is like at Oriel House Leisure centre?

A. We start early here, opening the club at 5.45am with people already waiting to get in! We run classes throughout the morning into lunchtime and then it’s time for kids swimming lessons in the afternoon. In the evening we’re back into classes in our studio. Throughout the day, we also offer member assessments and gym programmes, as well as personal training sessions for our many clients.
