We believe that everyone should be able to enjoy the benefits of physical exercise

For us Health & Wellbeing is about so much more than just physical exercise and fitness. Rather it is about connected wellness in body, mind and spirit. Physical fitness is often an important step on that journey and one through which you can see benefits in emotional and spiritual health.

That’s why at YMCA Walthamstow you will find a well equipped modern gym and a wide range of exercise classes and courses; everything you need to get started and to maintain good physical health and wellbeing. We also offer a range of personal training sessions that will help you achieve fast, safe results.

Whatever your goal, be it to lose weight and fit into last year’s jeans; train for a marathon; improve your mobility after an operation or to work off the stresses of the day: our trained fitness team can help you achieve it.

Over 50 classes each week

Enjoy a range of classes from Zumba to Pilates and Tap Dancing to Indoor Cycling. There is something for all ages and levels of fitness all day every day. Take a look at our group exercise timetable to find the perfect class for you.
