I love the YMCA of Cape Breton. Everyone is always friendly there. The facility is very well-equipped with all the space, machines, benches, squat racks, dumbbells, and so on that you could ask for! Such a great part of Sydney.
My family and I love our Y! The kids do swimming, play pals, fun Y kids and maybe adding ballet, my oldest frequents the conditioning centre and occasionally fences, and I do Zumba and occasionally Group Active, and I also take advantage of childminding.
YMCA is a very good place especially for college students because here they can access a computer and do their assignments and other stuff and also job-seeking students can take free copies of their resumes (10 per day). And also the staff is very kind and polite.
The staff are friendly and helpful. The facilities are clean and have a modern feeling. The gym is great if you are looking for a laid back place that isn't too busy. They have everything you would expect from a gym plus basketball and squash courts!
YMCA of Cape Breton is located in Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded territory of the Mi’kmaq People. This territory is covered by the ‘Treaties of Peace and Friendship’ which Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) people first signed with the British Crown in 1726. The treaties did not deal with surrender of lands and resources but in fact recognized Mi’kmaq and Wolastoqiyik (Maliseet) title and established the rules for what was to be an ongoing relationship between nations.
