Joining our Ipswich Gym

Our leisure and fitness facilities at YMCA Ipswich Gym are open to all, from our local community as well as our residents. The money you pay helps to support our work helping vulnerable young people build a better future.

We have a fully equipped fitness studio and a sports hall. Staff are all Level 3 qualified with the Register of Exercise Professionals, with many years of experience within the industry. For the Fitness Studio, we offer both a pay-as-you-go tariff and great value memberships to suit your needs and individual circumstances.

Our Fitness Studio is fully equipped with cardiovascular and resistance machines as well as a free weight area to cater for a variety of gym requirements.

We offer a safe, friendly and supportive environment in which people from the age of 12 can enjoy and develop their exercise routine. Come down for a visit to meet our team and find out more.

Upon joining, you will have the option of receiving a full induction – this is a 45 minute session during which our staff take you through a written medical screening and then guide you around the studio, helping you decide how best to make use of our equipment in order to achieve your fitness goals. However, we appreciate that some of our members know what they would like to do in the Fitness suite – you are therefore free to choose a shorter induction instead.


Sports hall


Our 3-court Sports Hall can be used for badminton, indoor football, short tennis and basketball. We also run a badminton club for 4-18 year olds on Tuesday evenings and Saturday mornings. There is a balcony area for spectators and changing facilities onsite.
