Dear All,

Following on from yesterday’s announcement by the government we have been continuing to assess the impact of keeping YMCA gyms open. As it stands we plan to keep our Gym facilities open so far as possible though to do so we have had to revise some operational norms, including class numbers, locations, styles and gym floor capacity. We intend to assess our ability to deliver a service safely as and when updated HSE advice is circulated.


As a result, we have adopted the following revisions to our opening hours and schedule;

As a reminder we would ask customers to remember the following:

  • Sweat towels are mandatory and all customers are required to bring one to use the gym.
  • We would recommend that customers shower at home.
  • Patrons not to leave items of clothing or personal belongings in lockers or sauna. All items found in the lockers/changing rooms will be disposed of at the end of each night.

People are being asked to stay at home if they have ‘flu-like symptoms (for example, fever, cough and so on) regardless of travel or contact history. Please do not come to the gym if you are experiencing any of these symptoms. If a gym customer does test positive for COVID-19 we would appreciate if you let our facilities manager know at

As stated previously, the situation is evolving and we will post updates on any changes to service delivery on our website and social media. We understand this is not ideal but these are challenging times and we are endeavouring to ensure safe access to our facility.

Kind regards,
YMCA Management Team

      Hi Katie,

    Thank you for this. It would be helpful to have a monthly update. I normally attend the seniors exercises classes and it would be great to know when these might be recommencing or when they might be put on-line so we could continue some regular exercise. As seniors I expect most of us have been ‘cocooning’ so therefore in MORE need of exercise. I hope you are all well. Grainne O’Boyle

      Hi Grainne! Thank you for leaving your feedback! We currently don’t know when our gym services are going to be back to normal. Every week we do send out emails with updates and news including workout videos for seniors. If you wish to receive updates from us please contact William at Kind Regards, YMCA Dublin.
