About Us

Woodlands Wellness & Performance Centre started life as Woodlands Fitness Centre back in 1995. Owned by personal trainers, triathletes and sports therapists Matt and Claire Sanderson since 2007, in September 2016 Matt, Claire and the team decided they wanted to refocus on what they are good at: working with individuals to help them achieve their specific goals.

In stark comparison to big brand or Council-led facilities where you are left to your own devices with no plan or goal, Woodlands Wellness & Performance Centre has an enhanced offering that brings together highly skilled professionals from various health & wellness backgrounds all under one roof.

This complements the very high standards of biomechanics screening, training and coaching – the centre has the largest number of qualified biomechanics coaches in the UK! It’s way more than just a gym, it’s where change happens.
