Having had a consultation at Educo Dundrum, it seemed the perfect gym for me. One to one sessions followed by group sessions with 6 people max. All very doable I was advised, even with a previous back problem, I was told it would be perfect for me. I was really looking forward to the 12 day challenge to start with. To start off they have 3 one-to-one sessions with trainer. Three beginners sessions later, I have had only one, one to one session. Subsequently after the second night I was… Read Full Review

They will brainwash you to go on their BS "mind-changing seminars", they claim that Tony Quinn is better than anyone and that if you don't pay them 12000 pounds- "Your life will be miserable". Ask yourself, do you need to pay some Quinn 12000 pounds to make your life happy? I don't think so… Read Full Review

Avoid at all costs. Research Tony Quinn, a self proclaimed "mind guru", has set up this farce of a franchise. His business dealings consist of recruiting people to his cult-like following, who pay 10,000 to 60,000 for various seminars. He is a farcical entity who tricks people into spending shed tons of money, ruining peoples' family lives and otherwise. Just look up how many court cases have been filed against. Disgusting man, I hope he gets what is coming to him… Read Full Review

I am extremely unimpressed with this gym. I signed up to the Barnes branch and although they fed me the right jargon to part, in hindsight with a ridiculous amount of money. Esentially all i was taught was to go on a diet, which i understand is obviously important but the 'personal training' was met with a trainer more lackluster than myself in being there, repeating how they would rather have a career in music than their current job. The 'manager' as young as they were generally looked… Read Full Review

I bought the 12 day programme at Harley Street to tone up before my weddings a few years ago. If you are like me, EducoGym will appeal and suit you if- You are NOT good at longer term, slower programs that need more patience, endurance and time to see results You are better at short sharp bursts of both exercises and very strict but short term, EASY TO FOLLOW diets You get a thrill from seeing results quickly You like interval training/training to the max for short sessions. I’m not… Read Full Review

When did you last attend? My experience has been of an extremely precise and effective results driven service of the highest quality. These gyms are run by individuals and like any business the presentation is dependent on the people and their standards. Harley Street & Barnes rock!… Read Full Review

This is the worst gym EVER. Avoid at all costs.. the system is flawed and the machine is ridiculous. However it can produce signs of weight loss if that your goal but it just not functional. i would say its good for people over 50 years old but thats it… Read Full Review

I have tried 2 different educo gyms - harley st and barnes. The system works but I find that barnes has a much better attitude than harley st. Harley st was a little bit too 'commercial' for my taste but a lost weight. I have been training at barnes for 18 months and they are great, my weight is fine and i am toned. I would recommensd them to anyone but it does depend on the franchise. Some are obviously better than others… Read Full Review

My wife and I joined educo gym in south Dublin in the summer to learn how to exercise properly in a short period of time and also lose some weight in the process. When we went to join the staff could not be nicer and welcomed us with open arms, we joined up for 3 months each at 219 per month per person and then all the supplements which came to close to 600. After the three months we decided to join another "normal" gym that was nearer to us to continue exercising as educo gym is not really a… Read Full Review

I would 100% not recommend educo gym from my own personal experience. It is an absolute rip off. Once they have your money they dont care, and major pressure put on me to buy their supplements,which also did not work for me.
I also felt in some cases there was a lack of supervision in the weight training given. I was told my first three sessions would be a one on one sessions, this did not happen. When i told one instructor i had not done a particalur exercise before she said i had, even… Read Full Review

Came to the Educo gym in Dublin to tone up, luckyly do not need to lose weight. The gym instructor attempted to push me "mind-training" seminar and at the same time was trying to grab my butt-what a despicable man who should not even be in the industry! The diet is in hight fat and he insisted no carbohydrates should be allowed. When asked why, he said that God (or monkey's pyjamas-can never remember) spoke thru Tony Quinn and that is "true nature of the world", he laso rambled about that "Life… Read Full Review

I have been training with Educogym at Canary Wharf for just over 6 months and have lost over 50 pounds (23 kgs) in this time. I find the low fat, low carb diet has made me feel so much better in myself but I have eased off on being as strict in terms of diet in the last few months as I approach my goal weight and I am still losing weight and toning up - my friends and family have been commenting every time they see me that the results are really noticeable so I am sticking with it!
The staff… Read Full Review

I checked out Educo Gym on Parnell Street in Dublin recently. I had looked at a lot of reviews of educogym first but I had to see for myself. Once I had an informed idea of what they offered I didn't sign up (it would have cost me nearly 600 euros for 3 months). And looking back I'm glad I didn't.
I should mention that I'm pretty familiar with principles of diet and exercise already. What I lacked was motivation. As many fitness experts have observed, getting into shape is SIMPLE but not EASY… Read Full Review

I went into Educo on the basis that I would be training hard and eating a healthy low GI diet. What they don't tell you is that after you have parted with your money that they want you to spend another £100 on supplements.
I found the whole experince really dissapointing and I didn't like there attitude when you complain, and come up with excuses as to why its not working, your the exception.
The diet is extreme and I felt like I had no energy a lot of the time.
Did I drop a dress size -… Read Full Review

What a nightmare of an experience. I wouldn't recommend this gym to my worst enemy.
After being introduced to the gym through an evening talk, I thought I'd try it out as it seemed quite interesting.
Upon arrival, I was sat down and explained I should take these 'weight loss/fat burner pills' in order to achieve optimum results.
Now I am very skinny and do not need to loose weight only gain.. Also was told by their in home nutritionist about this high fat, high protein diet. Now I'm a… Read Full Review

I was offered a 3 day FREE Trial, so seeing as it was free it would be harsh of me to give it a value for money score.
I did the three day trial and the guy who put me through my paces was very good, encouraging, and genuinely interested.
When the trial was over I had a "consultation" with the "Nutritionist" (not a protected title, by the way).
I was advised that I could do the 12 day intensive introduction.@'25/session
Plus '195 for supplements.
As I have elevated Iron levels, I was not… Read Full Review

I attended educo gym in Harley Street for about 2 years, found the programme very good the intensive training was a bit tough at times but overall well worth it.The trainers were very helpful and obviously into the programmes themselves, they certainly did everything they could to help me along. The supplements were a little pricy however. At the moment due to work commitments and distance I cannot make it but I still do a version of the programme at home. I would say it is well worth looking… Read Full Review
