Y Club: Manchester’s biggest and friendliest gym just got bigger!

A refurb to facilitate the health club members...

Manchester’s biggest and friendliest gym just got even bigger. At the end of last year the Castlefield based gym and health club underwent an extension to improve space and facilities. The refurb was in aid of facilitating the members’ needs and wishes – allowing room for more equipment and activities.

‘over 70 activities and classes
with no extra cost to
your membership.’

It’s love for the members that makes the Y Club a special club to be part of – a community. Part of the charitable Manchester YMCA, the club has offered a real sense of belonging to its lifetime members for over 170 years. Perfect for families, Y Club have listened and answered the wishes of their members fanatically. And just in time for a flurry of new members at the beginning of the year. That time of year when everyone is thinking about detoxifying, getting fit, and a new lifestyle. Getting rid of that Christmas weight.

With well over 70 activities and classes, Y Club hosts many ways to achieve your goals with no extra cost to your membership. And with members of all ages and abilities, you’re never short of a friend in hand. Membership is like adopting a family, however, the club is diverse and big enough to train independently in solace if you want.

As mammals we all need exercise to some degree and our individual lifestyles and body types suit different exercises. You might find running on a treadmill boring and prefer interval training – Y Club gives you the options and diversity to have a different regime every day. There are classes, like the metafit class, that are cutting edge but at the same time there are classes, like some of the members, that have been around forever.

One of the new things that the club offer is ‘Smart Goals.’ They have taken a fairly common concept (form, pen, clipboard) and put their own far-too-sensible spin on it. For a start they don’t despatch you to a corner and let you struggle on your own, they fill it in with you. They ask you what you want and why and they don’t use textbook terminology, they use your words. Whenever you go to the Y you feel that you really matter – because you do.

Y Club – a gym by the people for the people – a family.
