    Forest YMCA's East London Gym based in their leisure centre in Walthamstow can provide plenty of gym equipment and opening times to suit all.

    At Forest YMCA they see hundreds of local people from the East London area attend every day to use their gym, sports hall, exercise studio, sauna, steam room, cafe and function rooms.

    One half of the gym has joggers, rowers, stationary cycles, steppers and elliptical training machines. The other half has a complete set of strength training machines and a free weights area. Both areas have large screen TV's, showing music channels for your entertainment.

    Male and female changing rooms include a sauna as well as shower and locker facilities.

It's always good to go to the YMCA. Everyone is nice & it creates a welcoming atmosphere. I'll miss going for showers every week once our bathroom is ready ... Who knows when ... You guys must be thinking I'm having the bathroom of the century done!!!!
I might consider a membership in future :)))

The gym is quite small & there is not a massive range of equipment & some of it is quite old.That said, it was quite possible to have a good workout & there was a perfectly functional, clean sauna available. The YMCA is being renovated with the gym being totally upgraded soon.
