Community Inclusive

Membership for all
All YMCA's have dedicated memberships for both older adults (Active Adults) and youth (Active Youth). These dedicated memberships enable affordable access for for all ages and abilities.

We also strive to reduce financial barriers restricting community access to recreation and active living opportunities. With this in mind, we have concession discounts applicable to All Access Memberships and some casual admission fee types.

We’ll make you feel welcome and keep you on track towards your goals.

This is where we shine in comparison to many other gym providers. As a full-service provider, our staff play an active role in delivering wellness. This means complimentary gym inductions, setting up personalised workout programs to your goals, industry-leading group fitness, and general staff access to ad-hoc training questions and technique cues.

With the YMCA you can start your fitness journey with confidence, support and a clear path to achieving results.
