The site of Motherwell’s former Mega Bar has finally completed its transformation into a new state-of-the-art gym.
Aesthetic 13 Fitness and Wellbeing opened its doors to the public today and promises to be “one of the best fitness facilities in Scotland”.
The old nightclub building on Brandon Street was taken over by bodybuilding champion Kirk O’Brien who says it’s a dream come true to finally open his own gym.

Kirk told Lanarkshire Live on his grand opening today: “I’m finally happy to open.
“All the hard works been worth it to bring Motherwell the gym it needed badly.
“I’m so proud to bring Scotland my first high end and one the best training facilities around, members will not be disappointed in this facility.“
Known as the Mega Bar, Hype Superclub served the town for 15 years. Clubbers were saddened when it closed in 2019. But now the site is bringing a completely different experience to Lanarkshire locals.
The gym promises to take the physiques of fitness fans to the next level, with experienced personal trainers and top of the range equipment.
Over 60 people have already signed up to be members on its first day in business. And an exclusive look inside the new gym complex shows just what it has in store.
The site will also feature a beauty salon and a health food café, all available within the user’s membership.
The long wait for Kirk’s gym to open ended at 6am this morning as the shutters finally came up to welcome its members.
Now living in East Kilbride, Kirk is an 11-time champion of bodybuilding federations across the country and is ready to coach anybody from beginner to advanced athlete.
He previously told us: “My gym will not only have the best equipment but provide great customer service for all its members.
“There will be a health food café in the gym always to provide all members with healthy options to eat clean. With a salon and much more going into this gym, we will provide all services needed for our members at affordable prices.
“We are not a budget gym. We are a high-end gym with affordable prices.”
Kirk also said he never got the chance to experience the Mega Bar but he’s heard lots of stories about the famed club through friends and clients.
