New Outdoor Exercise Classes in North Shields
These classes have been designed with everyone in mind, offering both high and low impact workouts with activities that will keep you going even on the cooler days. The new classes include:
Coastal Run Club
Take in the beautiful scenery of Tynemouth’s coastal line whilst running, jogging or even walking as part of a group. Running with others is a great way to push yourself as the club provides support and encouragement as well as a sense of community.
Beach Boot Camp
Join the gym team bright and early for a Beach Bootcamp session on Longsands Beach in Tynemouth. No frills fitness drills combined with an amazing, energetic atmosphere will release those endorphins, helping you start the day off right.
Find your inner calm with a Tai Chi class. Influenced by Chinese martial arts, these classes are proven to reduce anxiety as well as strengthening muscles through low impact motions. These classes will take place in YMCA’s private nursery.
Wind down and focus on improving the structural alignment of your body through a series of postures. YMCA Gym’s outdoor yoga classes will take place in YMCA Nursery in North Shields.
Participating in an outdoor class means you can get back into your fitness regime without waiting for the gym to open. It’s also the perfect way to enjoy some fresh air and start working towards your summer fitness goals.
Due to the classes being outdoors please wear appropriate clothing for the weather.
Please note that there will be a limited number of spaces available for each of the outdoor classes to keep in line with government guidelines. To ensure a place on one of YMCA Gym’s outdoor classes, please book online.
A dearly loved gym member, joined YMCA Gym in January 2023 and her incredible journey has inspired us all. From poor health to fighting fit, Mary has triumphed.
YMCA Gym have teamed up with Trekstock to deliver 8-week exercise rehab programmes to young people in their 20s and 30s with a current or previous Cancer diagnosis.
One of our members returned to us after receiving Cancer treatment and described it as ‘coming home’.
Realising the benefits of regular physical activity, MIND and YMCA have teamed up to support several groups over the past year to help them thrive in Body and Mind.
It’s reached that point in the year when motivation begins to fail and those New Year’s resolutions you made are now a distant memory. You have all the excuses under the sun for not doing that Zumba class, or skipping those early morning Kettlebells, and it’s time to shake things up!
Early December, Cafe 1879 hosted YMCA Gym’s Annual Christmas Lunch where 29 of our members attended, enjoying an afternoon of celebrations and a delicious 3-course meal.
