“The Gym Yamba is dedicated to helping people of Yamba and surrounding communities to become better versions of themselves through our physical training programs”
The Gym Yamba is not a commercial facility. What we do have is a functional training facility run by a degree qualified & highly experienced Personal Trainer.
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.
But we understand that most people just want to look good naked. At the end of the day, looking healthy, fit, toned and strong is where we are at. It’s what we focus on and what we deliver.
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/Toning and basically makes daily tasks easier (carrying groceries and kids, home maintenance, jobs, etc.).
You’ll find training with us at The Gym Yamba 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 of life and consequently, the more people you meet.
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.
