YMCA’s Exercise Through The Ages

June 6, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:15 pm

175 Evenbrite v1

Try our impressive range of fun exercise classes ‘through the ages’ to celebrate the YMCA’s 175th birthday.

For the first time ever, the YMCA Club will showcase its extensive range of exercise classes ‘through the ages’ from the groovy 70s – when the Club began – to present day, as part of the YMCA Movement’s 175th birthday.

In your lunch break, why not join us for the biggest ever exercise extravaganza in central London’s largest gym?

As we travel through time from disco to electropop, don your dayglow or grab a glow stick – whatever fitness fashion takes your fancy.

Join us in the Main Sports Hall from 12.30pm for the whole event or whatever your time allows. Here’s what’s in store:

1970s YMCA warm-up (vintage gym shorts)

1980s Aero-dance (Lycra, leotards, legwarmers, headbands)

1990s Legs, Bums and Tums (dayglow and fluorescent)

2000s HIIT Combat to Trance music (glow sticks)

2010s Total Ballet Barre (tights and tutus)

Today Primal Patterns (under Armour-Nike sports kit)

YMCA finale followed by tea and cake.

Throughout the event and immediately afterwards, there will be the opportunity to meet some of our Personal Trainers and Resident Nutritionist, Nick Owen, on the Club balcony to offer you free, expert advice.

Fancy dress is not compulsory, but the best dressed person will win an exclusive YMCA Club Health and Wellbeing Package worth over £150, which includes a free Personal Trainer session, a free treatment and a free bespoke nutrition plan.

We’re taking the opportunity to fundraise for our ‘YMCA Sunday Hub Club’ – an inclusive activity club for young disabled people between 14 and 25, which we run on Sundays at the YMCA Club.

A collection bucket will be available on the day. We suggest a £5 donation, but any amount will be greatly received. Thank you.

**ALL ABILITIES WELCOME** – go at your own pace. Please don’t forget your water bottle.


**PUBLICITY** Please note that this event will be photographed and filmed for marketing purposes.

Please note that due to our staff birthday party taking place later that evening, the YMCA Club will be closed to the public from 3.30pm. Thanks for your understanding.
