Keith Andrews,37, purchasing planner, Artane, Dublin 5

Instructors are so FRIENDLY: The new spin studio is bigger and better in every way. Better air condition. Better lighting. The massive videos screens are great during the class. The instructors are so friendly and create a great, fun atmosphere. I have seen my fitness increase with every class.*
Colm Costelloe,39, Baldoyle

From OBESE to FIT: In 6 months I’ve transformed from being obese and sedentary top being fit and having a health weight. It’s been a life changing transformation. And I couldn’t have done it without Rachel’s help at West Wood Club.*

I Feel and look better than ever before: As a result of the training, motivation, and what I learned about nutrition from Rachel, my personal trainer at West Wood, I can honestly say I look and feel better than I’ve ever done before.*

Lost 8 lbs in 6 weeks.The new functional area & classes already have me hooked! I was never a fan of lifting weights as I thought I might bulk up, but by using the functional area, I can already see a difference in the definition of my arms & shoulders. I’m never bored using the functional area and I’ve lost 8 pounds since I started 6 weeks ago.*
Kevin Duffy,24, Rathmines, Dublin

Lost 8 STONE: Joined west Wood after my Doctor recommended it to help me lose weight and manage my diabetes. Best decision I ever made. Completely put at ease on my first visit by the friendliest staff ever. Since starting, I’ve lost 8 stone and 10 inches off my waist and have more energy than I ever thought possible.*

Never felt BETTER: I had been frustrated by recurrent injuries over the last couple of years. But Kevin, my trainer at West Wood got me to a level of fitness that I could never have achieved on my own. I have never felt better and have not had any recurrence of those nagging injuries. Using the perfect combination of encouragement and discipline, he made the experience very enjoyable.*
Sean Walsh, 23, Salesman, Clontarf, Dublin 3

TONNES of equipment: I love West Wood Gym because its very spacious with tonnes of equipment, and because its centrally located, it’s easy to get to.*
Joyce Groarke, Monkstown, Co Dublin.

Thoroughly RECOMMENDED: I would thoroughly recommend the Westwood Swim Team. All my children have improved tremendously in terms of their skills and their confidence in the water. I have found that the instructors strike a really good balance between making sure the children are developing the correct techniques and making sure that they are enjoying the lessons. It's so nice to see the children really looking forward to their lessons every week.*
Patricia Barry, retired Nurse, Clontarf

Blown away by facilities: I love the aqua-fit classes at West Wood. When I bring friends they are always blown away by the standard and facilities at West Wood. So much so they have all become members. Love the social element and how friendly the staff are. Thank you to all the staff who make working out fun for me.*
Frances (mother) and Emmet Moynihan, 14yrs, West Wood Elite Squad Member

Coaching in West Wood Club is the BEST: I have taken coaching in 3 other clubs before West Wood Clontarf, but the coaching in West Wood Clontarf is the best. Training is never cancelled due to weather conditions as it has 7 indoor courts.*

Stephanie Lowry 20, Student, Blackrock

Global Membership is great I love Padraig’s spin classes as they are so motivating and varied – it makes it much easier to come to the gym knowing it’ll be a great class. I also like to use the pool in Sandymount and its great to have the option to use the other clubs.*
Paul Timothy, 31, Electrician, Leopardstown

BODY FEELS GREAT The new functional area is a great addition to the club. For me it combines cardio & resistance workouts in one class. The instructors make it really interesting and I can already notice a huge improvement in my fitness since I started. My whole body feels great after a functional class.*
Margaret Bates, 29, Massage Therapist, Sandyford

With my wedding this year, I tried the usual diets and failed, I decided to give exercise a go. On my first visit, I met my Trainer, Nikki and she’s been really fantastic and helped me with my goals. I’ve lost 1.5 stone, but more importantly, I can fit into all my jeans again. I still have lots of work to do, but I’m confident that I’ll be looking great for my wedding in September! I can’t compliment the staff enough for all their encouragement and help, especially Nikki.*

A GREAT place to play tennis: The courts allow you to play tennis all year round, as opposed to just the summer months. This makes it a great tennis venue. The coaches are really friendly and are happy to help and train people at all times.*

BodyPump is GREAT: Helena's excellent instruction in the Pump classes means you waste no time trying to figure out what you are meant to be doing. Excellent music and technique also means I'm doing the class properly and working hard! I'm not great at "going on my own" in the gym so I find Pump great and always try and make sure I make Helena's classes.*
Trisha Glennon, 24, Teacher

New BoxFit makes exercise FUN: I absolutely LOVE the new BoxFit at West Wood. It makes exercise FUN. For the first time in a long time I LOVE exercising.*
Tom Bambrick, 68, Retired

Lost 2 STONE: I joined West Wood on doctor’s orders and fully expected to hate it! To my (and my family’s) surprise I’ve kept at it and have lost over two stone in five months. I think the number of different machines makes it easier as you don’t get bored. I also like to relax in the sauna and Jacuzzi afterwards as it’s a great way to switch off from everything.*
Claire Tynan,25, Student, Bray

Fun filled and high ENERGY: No matter what mood you’re in Body Attack at West Wood will always make you feel good. Helena’s infectious enthusiasm makes you want to give it your all. A fun filled, high-energy class that leaves you with a big smile on your face.*
Cian Reid, Top Ranked Irish Under 18 Junior, and West Wood Elite Squad Member.

BEST Tennis in Ireland: The coaches at West Wood Clontarf include some of the best in Ireland - they really improve your game. The court surface is amazing - I couldn't ask for better - and it's an added bonus having that roof over your head.*

Highly RECOMMENDED: Luke, my trainer at West Wood Club uses a nice balance of encouragement and persistence to get the best out of me so that I always feel I've achieved something after each session. I'd highly recommend Luke at West Wood to anyone who doesn't have the self motivation to go to the gym.*
Pat Halpin. Ballsbridge, Dublin 4.

Back and shoulder pain GONE: Having a stressful and sedentary job I developed terrible back and shoulder pain. The pain was so bad I never thought it would be possible for me to ever exercise again. But then I was introduced to Christina at West Wood, a personal trainer in Sandymount and the change is nothing short of a miracle. All my back and shoulder pains are gone. My body-shape has dramatically changed.*

A huge confidence boost: I joined West Wood Club to rehabilitate myself after a stay in an intensive care unit where I lost all my muscle mass. Oisin, my trainer was fantastic.

“As an ex-competitive athlete, I have been a member of many gyms throughout Dublin over the last 12 years. My past 3 years at West Wood have been by far the most productive. The facilities provide me with a perfect balance between cardio through scheduled classes and strength training in the weights room. Now I am in the best shape I have ever been! Great equipment, great people, great training!”*
Mark, 68, Retired, Merrion road Dublin

Westwood is a most welcoming place - the staff are exceptional. Receiving everyone like a friend - not a client. The trainers know how to encourage gently within one's abilities. The pool is one of the finest I've seen in the world. The standard of maintenance is exceptional - everything works and hygiene is top class. I recommend Westwood to my friends - the best recommendation!*

Damon, 50, Restaurant Owner from Dundrum

Not that long ago, I was unfit and lacked energy. Since joining West Wood, I have climbed Ben Nevis and completed the Wicklow Way Challenge. In one year I have put on one stone of muscle. The results really do speak for themselves; I lost four inches off my waist, I gained five inches on my chest and gained one and a half inches on my arms. I am now in the kind of shape where I can run 200m in 26 seconds on an indoor track!*
Ross, 24, Business Studies student from Dundrum

I’m amazed at what I’ve achieved since joining West Wood. I lost six stones in twelve months! It really has changed my life – I feel great. Hughie, my Personal Trainer, motivated and focused me to such an extent that I’m still losing weight. Losing six stones was fantastic but I’m not allowing myself to rest on my laurels!*
Michelle, 34 Works in bank, Sandymount Dublin 4

I have been a member for 9 years. I train about 5 times a week. What I love about Westwood gyms is the space and sunny views from their main floors. Staff are very friendly and you have a large amount of classes to choose from. It's also a very clean gym probably the nicest I have seen. I would highly recommend it. 29/05/09*
Sharon, 39, Works in Finance, from Dundrum

I used to be quite inactive. West Wood training now has me running five days a week and I also do four days of resistance training with weights. I feel fit and energetic.*
Julie,31, Restaurateur from Malahide

West Wood has helped transform my free time, which I would almost have characterised as sedentary. I am now at the point where I regularly scale Ireland’s highest peaks. Personal Training, particularly with weights, was instrumental in getting me where I am today. Having dropped two dress sizes in six months, I look and feel fantastic. *

Robert, 36, Engineer from Donnybrook

I’m getting married next year and wanted to be in great shape. Through working with my personal trainer twice a week, I have really focused on my general fitness. I do a mix of weights training and cardio training with Mihail and such is my new-found determination to meet my goals, I’ve even been inspired to quit smoking. *
Cormac Cunnane,33 ,Works in IT ,Gilford road Dublin

Westwood Sandymount is the best gym I have ever been a member of. It caters for all levels of fitness. Among it’s most impressive aspects are the variety of classes such as spinning for cardio fitness and Body Pump for burning off the excess weight. The gym instructors and staff are another plus point – professional, knowledgeable, dedicated and friendly. The equipment in terms of cardio machines, weight machines and free weights are plentiful so you never have to queue. Changing facilities are excellent – clean and spacious. All in all it is fantastic value for money – the monthly membership fee costs less than one night out in the town.*

The testimonials on the West Wood Club website

West Wood Clubs is a private members tennis, fitness, gym, and sports club based in Dublin, Ireland.

Every testimonial on the www.westwood.ie website is from a real West Wood Club member who followed our gym programs, workouts, fitness classes, and nutrition/diet advice given by our personal trainers, group-fitness coaches, and gym instructors. No one was paid for a testimonial or endorsement on our website. And all testimonials are available at head office at West Wood Club, Leopardstown Race Course, Dublin 18 for inspection. Any before and after photographs of members were not retouched or altered in any way. Results (weight loss, body fat percentage, fitness improvement, circumference measurements, etc) were provided by the individual member and therefore can not be confirmed. Errors could have been made in reported weight loss.

Results you can expect

West Wood Club members have been known to lose up to 25 pounds or more in 60 days, but weight loss and fitness results vary depending on the person. No guarantee is provided or implied.

Results may vary based on each member’s physical health, diet and exercise, and consistent adherence to West Wood Club’s fitness and weight management programmes. The weight loss results described in West Wood Club member’s testimonials or photos are not typical for every individual, and again, no guarantee of weight loss, fat loss, or fitness improvement results is provided or implied. Individual results highly depend on the adherence the nutrition plans as well as following the fitness and weigh loss programmes designed for them by West Wood Club personal trainer.

The causes of being overweight or obese vary from person to person based on individual metabolic rates, daily activity, levels of exercise and physical exertion. This means weight loss results will also vary from person to person. No individual result as as stated by members of West Wood Club in their testimonials should be seen as typical.

You should assume that any weight loss, fitness or medical results shown in testimonials, advertisements, stories, blog posts, or anywhere else on our website are not typical. Typical weight loss is 1 to 2 pounds per week when an individual consistently follows a sound nutrition and exercise program designed around best practice guidelines. In overweight or obese people, weight loss of up to 1% of total bodyweight per week is more common. Faster weight loss in the first 2 to 3 weeks is common but usually is a result of water weight loss, not body fat. Faster fat loss is possible, but not likely. The West Wood Club fitness and weight loss programs recommend a healthy lifestyle programme and a long term approach to body fat reduction, strength gain, and fitness improvement. Any dramatic body changes will need dietary discipline, regular exercise, and hard physical work.
