About Us

The Gym Yamba is not a commercial facility. What we do have is a functional training facility run by a degree qualified highly experienced Strength and Conditioning coach.

We provide professionally designed training programs which have proven to get the best results out of each and every person who walks in the door! Our training is about building confident individuals via a systematic approach that enhances strength, fitness and vitality. We also equip you with the education to improve your nutrition and enhance your health.

We lift weights, move our body in space and push & pull random objects, not out of some sense of guilt or vanity (well not all the time) but because we like to take care of our bodies.

Strength enhances the body through improving the following: Metabolism (fat burning engine), Physique (self-confidence), Health (combat sickness & improve recovery), Bone Density, Joint Support, Muscularity and Leanness (what people refer to as ‘tone’) and basically makes daily tasks easier (carrying groceries and kids, home maintenance, jobs, etc.). You’ll find it also benefits the things in life not necessarily related to training such as relationships, sleep and social networking. The more active you are, the more you get out and about and consequently, the more people you meet.

Try improving any of those traits listed above watching TV or sleeping-in tomorrow morning – Take Action TODAY!
Our training teaches people how to push the limits they’ve never known how to push beyond before – we are by no means a torture chamber but a place where everyone is challenged regardless of their current fitness and strength levels.

Come in and train with motivated like-minded individuals whilst receiving professional personal coaching every session. If you want to change your life for the better, then The Gym Yamba will provide you with the means to do so.
