If the mere thought of a packed sweaty gym with lousy dance music sends you into a spin, you’ll be delighted to learn about the utterly zen workout studio, The Well, located at The Tannery. The Well Studios is forging a new design for exercise and wellbeing and we rate it. 

The Well Studios comprises eight trained practitioners who specialise in a myriad of wellness professions including a physio, osteopath, nutritionist, massage therapist, pilates instructor and personal trainer. Owner Jen Rice, who came up with the concept, wanted to create a space that brings balance and encourages users to go on a journey to learn about their bodies. Unsurprsingly then, The Well Studios adopts a holistic approach to exercise, fitness and wellbeing offering services that compliment their bespoke gym and pilates studio. Jen has been working in the industry for many years as a personal trainer and wanted to create a space that was not too overwhelming and simultaneously fostered a sense of community, she’s succeeded in both. 

The space is serene and thoughtful. Top-of-the-range gym equipment is set against the backdrop of wooden beams, natural ply and a menagerie of plants. Streams of natural light pour in from the windows and are supplemented with a spattering of covetable industrial lighting. The space has been designed with intention, and it shows. 

If you’re after a class, they offer a range of different options throughout the week including barre workouts, mat pilates and movement therapy. A mixed-level pilates class is also available on the weekend too. What better way to kick start your weekend than a stretch and tone and a little stroll around The Tannery? Sounds like wholesome good fun!
