He became angry with Gemma Jennings and said he wanted to fight someone. He punched Joseph Sargent in the head and started chasing after him.
Atkins punched Christopher Cann on the head, knocking him unconscious, and leaving him bleeding from his mouth.
He punched Miss Jennings and Sargent, who punched him back. Atkins grabbed Mr Sargent's arm, aggravating an old injury, and headbutted Lauren Lowry in the face.
She was knocked to the floor and was left dazed, with her nose bleeding heavily and blood trickling into her eyes. He broke a window and was bleeding heavily, but said he wanted to get Mr Sargent.
The police arrived and gave him "warning after warning", but they had to use a Taser on him to calm him down.
Andrew Bailey, mitigating, said Atkins had been "out of control" on M-Cat mixed with vodka. He claimed he remembered nothing of the incident at all, but had apologised to those involved and had shown remorse.
Judge Peter Clark told Atkins: "You went on the rampage at the YMCA, hitting four separate people and ending up breaking a window."
Atkins was jailed for 15 months.
