The Y NSW starts operations at three Western Sydney University Gyms
The Y NSW has this week officially opening the doors as the new provider at Western Sydney University’s three gyms.
The gyms at Hawkesbury, Penrith and Bankstown reopened to the public on Monday 13th January, with some exciting changes and familiar faces.
Advising that the Y is embarking on its "own university orientation", the Y’s Area Manager, Shane Simmons commented "it’s been an incredibly busy time for the team. As a youth organisation the Y thrives in a university setting and we’re looking forward to becoming an embedded part of this community.
“We’ve successfully transitioned the majority of former University employees to the Y, we’ve undertaken some community and stakeholder consultation and held our first strategy day. Our absolute commitment is to connect the WSU campus to community.
“Our inclusive approach and subtle changes to the gyms will support the local community, staff and students to come together and feel a sense of belonging.”
Following the Y NSW's appointment as the manager and operator of the gyms in late December last year, it has been reviewing the programs and services offered and implementing a number of changes including a brand new equipment layout.
Simmons added "a number of changes have been made to the sites including equipment relocations to support a more inclusive look and feel for customers.
"We are also looking to trial some new programs including Les Mills, Teen Gym and the Y’s community program Uplift."
The Y was awarded a long term contract to manage the Penrith, Hawkesbury and Bankstown facilities late last year. It comes following a successful tenure at the University of New South Wales Fitness and Aquatic Centre since 2015.
