strength and conditioning

Our strength and conditioning classes combine coaching, insight, and support to give you the best and most effective gym experience.
Group training sessions in our unique 1871 facility combine the attention of personal training with an unrivalled team atmosphere. Workouts are carefully scaled to each member’s ability, so anyone can take part, prevent injuries and improve their physical performance and movement quality.


CrossFit is constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity. CrossFit workouts are based on functional movements, and these movements reflect the best aspects of gymnastics, weightlifting, running, rowing and more.
CrossFit classes at YMCA gym take place in our unique 1871 facility. While CrossFit challenges the world's fittest, the programme is designed for universal scalability, making it the perfect application for any committed individual, regardless of experience. We scale load and intensity; we don’t change the programme. The needs of Olympic athletes and our grandparents differ by degree, not kind.

Open gym

Open gym sessions are your time to perfect technique, practice your movements and work out at your own pace.
The atmosphere is a little more relaxed, and there is always one of our Coaches in attendance to offer tips and advice.
