Health Fitness Wellbeing

YMCA Health and Fitness offers a wide range of classes to cater to the diverse needs of our community.  

Our primary location for classes is the YMCA Chifley Health and Fitness centre.  This facility is located within the Chifley Health and Wellbeing Hub and has a fully equipped gym and group fitness room.  Group fitness classes are conducted in both the fitness room and the gym.

For those choosing to do their own workout in the gym there is always a qualified instructor on the floor to help with advice on using machines, technique, stretches and your personal program  If you are looking for that extra motivation and edge you can take advantage of the personal training options available.
