YMCA Chifley Health and Wellness Centre

The YMCA Chifley Health and Wellness Centre is a community based gym with a focus to make our community happier and healthier. We offer a fully equipped gym and group fitness room with various classes catering for people of all ages, abilities and fitness levels. 

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 or exercise physiology options available. 

The YMCA provides the flexibility of multiple membership packages for all to access our facility including:

  • Wellbeing
  • Wellbeing Concession
  • PrYme Mover (+50 seniors)

All memberships include a health assessment and personalised program on joining, reassessment every 3 months as requested, access to all group fitness classes and the gym and free locker hire (subject to availability). The YMCA wants to make it simpler for you to access a facility that meets your Health and Wellness needs so we do not apply any joining fees!

 YMCA Community PrYme Movers Initiative

As part of our Community PrYme Movers Initiative, we offer various PrYme Mover classes across 14 different locations around Canberra. 

PrYme Mover classes cater for a broad range of abilities and fitness levels that are friendly, fun and engaging and will provide a challenge that makes without being too pushy or confronting. If you haven't participated in formal exercise for a long time, don't worry your instructor will help you to work only within your capacity.

Our classes have different focus areas such as cardiovascular health, strengthening, balance and core stability. We also run classes tailored to people who are living with mobility limitations or chronic illness.

In most of our locations, there is an opportunity for participants to linger after class for a cuppa and a chat either at the venue or a local coffee shop. Many of our participants take advantage of this social opportunity. Anyone 50 years or over can get involved. The only requirement for participation in our PrYme mover programs is your age and a willingness to give it a go.
