Episode notes

From starting a career as a bricklayer at 16, to eventually building a gym & well known brand, Luke Dennehy founded Dennehy's Fitness with his father in the early days of the recession - probably one of the most difficult times to even consider starting a business.

But his time in business has come with great challenges along the way, especially when his busiest gym in Douglas Village was victim to the devastating fire in 2019 & just before the big re-open Dennehy's was hit yet again with the closure due to the pandemic. But as Luke puts it - "if you don't have obstacles you're not progressing" & that mentality has worked i his favour with the opening of 4th gym in the newly developed Penrose Wharf, could there be a 5th gym in the future? Tune in to find out!
