Gym Plus Coffee is an Athleisure company – activewear / leisure clothing combined which was created by returned Irish emigres, Karl Swaine, Niall Horgan and Diarmuid McSweeney. The creators describe the brand is “a community of people who believe in early morning runs, comfy hoodies and lazy Sunday coffees. We are passionate about exercising, socialising, and making life richer.” The business was set up after the creators had spent some time travelling. A big inspiration for the brand was the healthy lifestyles incorporated in places like Australia and California, they noticed that Irish people were starting to lean more towards this lifestyle and they wanted to incorporate that in to their brand. Gym Plus Coffee started off online and has since grown to now having 6 stores including one in the UK. While Covid has caused them to close for now, they are still making headway through online sales.   Listen and subscribe to The Pat Kenny Show on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts and Spotify.      Download, listen and subscribe on the Newstalk App.    You can also listen to Newstalk live on newstalk.com or on Alexa, by adding the Newstalk skill and asking: 'Alexa, play Newstalk'.
