Re-opening Update

We are excited to announce our aim is to reopen the leisure club from Jun 21st 😁
Looking at the current pandemic situation we're hopeful we should see a reduction in restrictions, sufficient enough to reopen all our facilities once again, including full use of the changing rooms, the sauna, steam room and spa bath.


** Woodlands Triathlon - 23rd September **


Re-opening Update

We are excited to announce our aim is to reopen the leisure club from Jun 21st 😁
Looking at the current pandemic situation we're hopeful we should see a reduction in restrictions, sufficient enough to reopen all our facilities once again, including full use of the changing rooms, the sauna, steam room and spa bath.

We would like to apologize that we have not been able to open our facilities sooner. However, a 65% loss in membership during the first lock down and the subsequent heavy loss suffered in reopening last summer, have meant we have had to be cautious in our approach. Facilities like ours and all other smaller businesses need help and we hope we can count on yours moving forward. More details will be found on our website or social media pages as we get nearer reopening day. We look forward to seeing you 😊

Woodlands Gym



From reluctant jogger to marathon runner, slimmer to body builder, the Gym welcomes you to a supervised, friendly environment from early to late, 7 days a week.  For that extra motivation personal trainers are available at a time to suit you.

Exercise Referral & Exercise Specialists

We operate an exercise referral scheme which allows us to talk directly to your GP (with your permission).  This ensures that we are working together in an agreed way to help you back to health.  We also have exercise specialists in lower back pain management.


No booking is required at this stage.
All gym users please come gym ready and shower at home.
Please respect all capacity notices and the social distance between you and other users.
Please continue to wipe down all equipment you use and any areas you touch with the disinfectant spray and wipes provided.
All equipment that is not 2 metres apart will have restricted use and please only exercise in defined areas or on a machine.
This helps keep walkways clear and maintains social distance.
Previously completed gym programs will be available, however, you will need to ask the gym instructor for a copy on your arrival.
We look forward to seeing you all very soon


exercise referral

Exercise / GP referral is for those of you that have been advised to exercise by your doctor or health professional.  If this applies to you or someone you know please contact our reception team who will be happy to book you in for an informal chat with one of our qualified exercise referral staff.

We implement exercise referrals as we believe everybody should have access to a safe environment to exercise with the correct advice available to them every step of the way.  Here is a list of the more common reasons people are referred to us:

General rehab following accident or illness : Raised blood pressure : Back pain Weight control : Osteoarthritis : Diabetes : Rheumatoid arthritis : Osteoporosis : Asthma : High cholesterol : Lung disease : Stress/anxiety : Depression

If you feel that exercise will help you, or have been advised to exercise by a doctor or health professional please contact our reception team.  You will be asked to take a letter from us to your doctor following your initial assessment with us.

This enables us to advise them on  the program we are planning for you, and give them the opportunity to advise us of any modifications they feel are beneficial.  Please rest assured that any information you share with us is completely confidential.  We will only exchange information with your consent.  Once we have received the completed letter we will be able to create your personal programme and help you begin an active and healthy lifestyle.

The following are included in your health check:
Lifestyle analysis
Resting heart rate
Blood pressure
Oxygen uptake

All the above are mandatory for all our personalised programmes.
We can also offer the following if relevant to you:
Peak flow
Body composition

strength & conditioning

Strength and Conditioning looks at developing physical aspects involved in sport and exercise, from recreational to elite performance.  It can include strength development, muscular hypotrophy, or reducing injury risk depending on your aims and goals.

We look to provide our customers with necessary information on effective training regimes to reach your goals while helping to develop your own knowledge into the area.  Training regimes incorporate elements of Olympic lifting, Kettlebell exercises and various squats, giving a whole body holistic approach.

personal training

Although we offer a bespoke programme as part of our membership, more of you are looking for personal training to provide you with motivation and expert advice to achieve your goals.  Exercise with a personal trainer or exercise specialist either one to one, or in small groups can be booked at a time that suits you as often as you like.

The majority of the training takes place in the gym but we have the flexibility (and qualifications within the team) to use the pool or the great outdoors as alternatives.

We are adjacent to Sheringham Park and close to Kelling Heath for running, cycling and walking.  Strength and conditioning, kickboxing, weight control, Kettle-bells, rehab and fun can all be part of the experience.
We also hope to share our expertise with you to give you a better understanding of your exercise regime.

One to One personal training

Members £30
Non-Members £40
Shared price £25 each (2 people)
30 minutes 50% of the above

All our personal trainers have public liability insurance.

back pain management

Programmes offer one to one help, advice and instruction for anyone trying to manage ongoing lower back pain.  More of us seem to be suffering from back issues at some point in our lives.  Sometimes, the causes are obvious and treatment is simple and effective.

However, GP’s, Chiropractors and Physiotherapists can only do so much in the short time allowed.  Our approach at Woodlands Leisure is to be led by you.  We are happy to liaise with health professionals to ensure we are all working together to maintain and manage your back pain, but ultimately it is your feedback to us and your ability to manage your rehabilitation which really can make the difference.

Changes to your programme and on-going advice are all included in your membership.


Nutrition is a vital key role in health and wellbeing; here at Woodlands Leisure we offer professional up to date researched nutritional advice to help you maximise your performance as well as weight loss/targets.
