Here’s 5 reasons to choose getting fit at YMCA!

  1. Our Staff 

    All our staff have a wealth of experience and qualifications. Equally, our team are down-to-earth and know what it’s like to get started on your journey (they weren’t always super fit!), so they’ll be there to help you. Plus, our gym is always manned, by someone ready to give you support and guidance.

  2. Free Parking

    And lots of it! We have ample free parking space right at our centre, so that’s one thing you don’t need to worry about. Alternatively, if you’re taking the bus there’s a stop right outside the centre on the 61/62 route, or 10 minute walk from Outland road.

  3. We’re a charity and that supports local people

    YMCA Plymouth is a non-profit organisation and every penny that we make goes back into the local community. Helping people to get active and lead healthy lifestyles is one of our core aims – so you can rest assured that we are genuinely here for you. Equally, your membership helps support a range of charitable services which not be sustainable without you. 

  4. We’re independent

    Despite YMCA being a global movement, we’re structured in a way that every YMCA is an independent charity. When YMCA Plymouth was founded in 1848 it was an effort by Plymouth people who wanted to address local needs. 172 years later, that’s not changed, and we want to keep it that way.

  5. There’s plenty to choose from

    Staying fit and active is about finding what you enjoy and what works for you. We have one of the biggest selections of group fitness classes in the city, a range of affordable personal training options and an extensive fitness suite. And that’s not all – we also have plenty of sports and activity clubs run at the centre throughout the week. So whether it’s badminton, roller derby or climbing, there’s plenty to explore.
