Youth Fitness


Y-Zone is a gym and studio-based activity programme for young people that helps them learn how to keep active and look after their health and wellbeing through physical activity.

Sessions help young people to develop a positive and long-term relationship to activity – giving them skills and knowledge that will stay with them for life, while making a real difference to their health & wellbeing today.

With a body-positive outlook, sessions are structured according to the young person’s age, size, confidence and fitness levels, so that they feel comfortable and can engage at their own pace.

With the support and guidance of our friendly fitness trainers, young people are encouraged to build a healthy relationship with their own physical health, their bodies and the gym environment – combating misconceptions, stereotypes and myths that can negatively impact their mental health.

We deliver hour-long sessions each week in our gym, as well as other specialised sessions for school and college groups. Activities are led and guided by our experienced trainers and include circuits on our Queenax Rig (It’s like a big climbing frame!), a range of exercises using dumbells, barbells or fixed machines, as well as cardio machines such as treadmills, bikes and rowers in our state-of-the-art gym.

We also offer special sessions in our immersive cycle studio and aerobics studio for school and college groups.
