Aaron’s Gym Northern Ireland was formed in 2012 by Aaron McGonigle in the town of Magherafelt, with a vision of supporting and encouraging local athletes while maintaining an average Joe’s type gym where everyone was welcome, no matter what their ability. As the years progressed and the vision became a reality with athletes and athlete teams recognised nationally and internationally, the vision evolved with the rebranding of the AG slogan in 2018 to “Nurturing Body and Mind”. During this time Aaron’s Gym opened their second location in the Tyrone town of Cookstown.
Aaron’s Gym is the 1st brand of gyms leading the way globally combining the physical, mental and emotional in partnership with sister centre, Energy Mind and Body.
The Aarons Gym logo and unique murals have become its trademark, designed and collated with Belfast street artist Glen Molloy Creative. The colours and the vast range of high-quality equipment (Hammer Strength) attracts gym goers from all over the country.
Aaron and his team work regularly with schools, charities, government organisations, and community support groups to raise the awareness of the mind and body through various practices such as meditation and mindfulness.
Giving back to the local community is the founding ethos of the combined team of Aarons Gym / Energy Mind and Body. Local community support projects and charity fundraisers are organised regularly throughout the year.
