We are delighted to announce that YMCA Fylde Coast have approved a £100k investment into the refurbishment of the gym at YMCA St Annes Pool & Gym.
As a result of the refurbishment, the free weights section of the gym will be extended, improvements will be made to the sound system and new equipment installed. The centre will see the inclusion of the latest generation of cardio equipment and technology from Life Fitness. We will have everything you expect and more, plus brand new power mills, all including the new digital fitness experience (LFConnect). The new equipment will introduce Lifescape where the world is your workout. Immerse yourself and cycle in France’s Col de la Colombiere or run through California’s Trinity Mountains.
Plus, YMCA St Annes Pool & Gym introduce to you the new state of the art SPARC and ARC Trainers. Supercharge your workout with these exciting new additions to your gym. Adding a new dimension to your workout, the kit is designed to keep you interested and focused with exercises modified to your personal fitness levels. Improve your strength, increase metabolism and improve your power. The Trainers are low impact and offer you the ability to burn calories through high intensity interval training (HIIT).
A dedicated core zone and free weights area will mean you can make the most out of the selection of equipment available, including dumbbells (2kg-40kg) and high performance Power Rack.
YMCA St Annes Pool & Gym as a centre will continue to operate and remain open during the refurbishment. However, in order to ensure that the refurbishment is completed safely, efficiently and with minimum disruption to our members and users, there are some essential works that need to take place. In order to facilitate the refurbishment, the gym will unfortunately have to close for a period of approximately three weeks. During this period, there will be little or no disruption to the operation of the swimming pool and this should remain fully operational as normal, allowing you to continue to enjoy the full benefits of swimming and our range of associated group exercise classes. Here are the key dates for your diary:
Monday 5th June 2017 – Gym only will be fully closed
Sunday 25th June 2017 – Exclusive Member Taster Day (10am-2pm)
Monday 26th June 2017 – Gym will fully re-open
Please note, these dates are just a guideline and as we plan to adhere to these as much as possible, there could be some slight changes. We will of course do our utmost to keep you fully updated online, via announcements on centre notice boards at YMCA St Annes Pool & Gym and via our Facebook page
Your YMCA Membership
One of the great things about your YMCA membership is that it includes access to all YMCA Health and Fitness Centres on the Fylde Coast. Therefore, during our temporary closure period, you will have the ability to continue to use your membership to workout and enjoy the facilities at your closest YMCA gyms at St Alban’s Road and Mythop Road, Lytham. It’s a great opportunity to try something new too with different activities available for everyone. Please check our full list of activities here

Even though this is an exciting time and the refurbishment is undoubtedly a massive boost for the whole community, we know the short term situation isn’t ideal and we really do appreciate your continued support and co-operation during this time. As a charity, we reinvest back into the community. You are helping us to continually improve and develop our YMCA health, fitness and leisure facilities.
