About MRC Fitness Dalry

Our History

MRC Fitness was founded in 1984 by Malcolm & Helen Clark in the basement of their home and moved in 1996 to their larger current premises. Malcolm, although a former competitor bodybuilder, wanted to have a gym where the ordinary person could feel good about themselves and make going to the gym part of their lifestyle. This continues to be the philosophy of Malcolm’s daughter, Lorraine Wallace, who has been the owner since 2012, along with her general manager Stuart Clayton. Prospective members always tell us, when they visit, that ‘they got a good vibe for the place’ and the friendliness was obvious.


The MRC Team

Lorraine and her team have been helping people in Dalry and further fields to reach their fitness goals for over 38 years. In that time, we've developed a gym and fitness studio entirely based around our community. No matter what your goal is - whether it's to lose weight, build muscle, or just get fit and healthy - we can help you achieve it.


We're based in Dalry, North Ayrshire, and have a fully-equipped gym with everything you need to get started on your fitness journey. 


Award Winning Gym 

In 2018 MRC Fitness was awarded ‘Best Fitness Business’ in Ayrshire along with Malcolm being awarded ‘Lifetime Achievement in Business’ award. In 2019, they were then awarded ‘Best Fitness Business in Scotland’ in Glasgow.

Katie Osborne

MRC Fitness is my favourite place to go. It helps me in so many ways with my anxiety, mental health, issues with my back and my weight.
The staff are so friendly and are always there to help. I feel amazing after either a workout or boot camp. MRC Fitness really is the best place to be.
