Why W Fitness
W Fitness is so much more than a gym – we’re a family! Not only will you reach your goals, you’ll have fun doing it too – and make lots of supportive friends along the way.
We are not a conventional gym.

You’ll have better sleep, improved cognitive functioning, feel more mobile and flexible, have more energy, and reduce your risk of many diseases, such as Coronary Heart Disease, Type 2 Diabetes and Dementia to name a few.
We make sure we know every member, and usually become good friends too!

Hannah is one half of the mother-daughter team that makes W Fitness. She loves to push our ladies to reach their goals, whilst ensuring they have fun!
Hannah started her fitness journey at 3 years old in a ballet class, which quickly became her passion; competing in competitions, performing at corporate events, teaching, and completing exams.
Aside from dance, Hannah loves skiing, her cats, spending time with family, and is a complete foodie (especially baking!)
FUN FACT: Hannah used to be a TV extra working on soaps like Emmerdale and Coronation Street, as well as BBC Drama’s like The Syndicate. In fact, working on Waterloo Road is where she met her Husband, Jonny!
Caroline is the other half of our mother-daughter team! Always a friendly face, Caroline will ensure our lovely ladies get the results they deserve!
After having two children, Caroline restarted her fitness journey at the age of 50 after realising her energy levels had dropped, her fitness levels were low and her health wasn’t where it should be. Caroline now loves helping other ladies achieve what she has – everyone deserves to be healthy and happy!
Aside from fitness, Caroline loves a beach holiday, spending time with family, and enjoying a cocktail with friends.
FUN FACT: Caroline has a secret daredevil side – not only has she ridden the highest Zipline in the World, but she’s also completed a solo skydive at just 18 years old!
Sheryl started out as a W Fitness Member, and jumped at the chance to work with us when we advertised for a Fitness Coach. Sheryl instantly became a part of the W Fitness Team and has completed her W Fitness Level 1 and 2 Coaching Certificate, as well as her W Fitness Level 3 Personal Trainer Qualification!
Sheryl is always on hand to help our ladies around the circuit and we couldn’t be without her now!
Aside from working for us, Sheryl loves to bust a move and one of her favourite places to be is on the dancefloor!
FUN FACT: Sheryl can say Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious backwards just like Mary Poppins does in the movie!
“It is really supportive here at W Fitness and I feel lucky to now work here too!”
Adela has recently joined our W Fitness Team and has certainly become a perfect fit straight away with everyone loving her new classes! Adela has passed her Level 2 Gym Instructing Qualification as well as her Level 3 Personal Training Qualification.
Adela is a great motivator to anyone who needs it! She’s always friendly, approachable, and ready to help any members with their circuit programme, as well as being a fab class instructor ready to put you through your paces!
Hannah and Caroline both worked in the fitness industry, with W Fitness starting after we got chatting about all things wrong with women’s fitness!
Hannah was currently working in a big box gym with a tiny ladies area. Lots of ladies chatted to her about feeling overwhelmed with so many machines that they didn’t know how to use, or what they needed to be doing to get the results they wanted, and this was only if they could get on the machines as it was so busy! We found that ladies would retreat to the cardio equipment because it was ‘safe’, they knew what to do on it and no-one was particularly watching them.
Meanwhile, Caroline worked in a small ladies only gym (not in the Horsforth area), that instead of lifting women up seemed to have the opposite effect, with some very condescending language. This particular gym was part of a franchise, so it was difficult to change the way things were run.
So, we put our heads together and wanted to create a space for women to come and workout confidently, safely and in a positive atmosphere!
That’s how W Fitness was born!
