About us

The Beach Hotel Fitness Suite in Minehead, West Somerset, offers state of the art facilities and professional classes for all ages and abilities. We first opened in 2016 as a joint partnership between the charities YMCA at The Beach Hotel, and Somerset Activity & Sports Partnership (SASP), with the aim of encouraging activity in adults of all ages across Minehead and West Somerset. Our goal is to be inclusive to our whole community - meaning that we can support you to help you reach your individual fitness and health goals.

So, whether you are a certified fitness buff or easing back into exercise after some time off or for medical reasons, we can help.
