YMCA Health & Wellbeing Centres

Joining a YMCA Health & Wellbeing Centre is the best way to feel great this summer. What makes YMCA Centres so special is that they are situated in the heart of communities. The centres are they modern, well equipped with dedicated staff.  They are vibrant social hubs. Local people can get to know each other, support each other and feel good about themselves.

Leslie and Trevor

Leslie and Trevor have been members of YMCA Surbiton Health & Wellbeing Centre for a whopping 26 years!  Here is what they had to say about the centre and their personal fitness journey…

Trevor and Leslie and go way back and share an enduring love of fitness. They have been work out partners for around 35 years, and know a thing or two about what makes a gym tick all the boxes.

“We were looking for a new gym 26 years ago and this one at YMCA Surbiton represented the best value for money,” says Trevor.

Back then YMCA Surbiton looked a lot different and didn’t offer accommodation to people in the community. These days members know that their money is going to a good cause. “YMCA Surbiton has changed a lot since we’ve been here. Now it’s a hostel as well. We know that our money goes towards helping all the people being looked after within YMCA,” says Trevor.

All the YMCA Health & Wellbeing Centres feature state-of-the-art equipment, but it’s the staff that really make members welcome and ensure they reach their fitness goals.

“We’re self-motivated because we’ve been training for many years, but the Fitness Instructors here give us lots of encouragement,” says Trevor. “The staff are friendly, we interact a lot with them and we meet a lot of people that we have great conversations with.”

Joining a YMCA Health & Wellbeing Centre isn’t purely about physical fitness; it’s also about the way it makes you feel and the impact on your lifestyle.

“Exercise is great for your life. It gives you a sense of wellbeing and makes you feel a lot better. It keeps you fit, strong and healthy. It makes me feel revitalised,” says Leslie.
