Why do I need the app?
This app will provide our fitness members several key outcomes from class bookings to tracking fitness data and your exercise programs available in the palm of your hand.
How do I obtain access?
Once you have downloaded The Y NSW app and created your account, it will ask:
- to enable location allowing any of your outdoor activity used within the app to be tracked and record data
- enable services that allows your activity tracked in your phone to be shared with the app which ensures all data is in one location
- enable push notifications; this will allow the app to share booking and appointment reminders with you. We recommend all are enabled.
How do I choose my facility?
Once app registration and set up is complete, it will ask you which Y facility you are a member of and will be connected to.
What happens to the current process of class bookings?
The current booking process via the website will cease at the end of Sunday the 14th of February. All classes until that date will still be booked via the website.

How do I obtain a fitness program and a fitness consultation?
Your first stop is to connect with a member of our fitness team to book you in for a consultation. These consultations and programs that have in the past been on paper will now be digital and accessible to you in and outside of the gym.
How do I adjust my profile settings in the app?
