The Fitness Studio

Welcome to The Performance Zone website, we’re excited to have you here. Set to open on April 12th 2021, we offer a state of the art fitness studio operating out of the old Southwater Leisure Centre building. We specialise in providing expert coaching across all our products, be it 1-to-1, group training or as part of our exercise referral scheme.

Run by a team of highly qualified and enthusiastic trainers, we’ve worked towards building an environment where you can come to have fun, as well as work towards your health and fitness goals. Community is at the heart of what we do and we have an extensive group timetable, as well as offer a range of workshops to ensure you get the most out of your membership with us.

Sound interesting? Watch our short video below to what all the fuss is about. Once you’re ready, browse our products on the links above and you can book your free taster session, consultation or show around.

What Our Customers Think

After injuring himself on set of The Cursed Child while playing Draco Malfoy, Alex contacted me to help him rehab his knee injury and return to full fitness before travelling to New York to continue his role. He is now back to full health and ready to return to the stage – Matt

I had a patella tendinopathy that needed rehab. Matt has been brilliant in bringing it back to full strength. He’s also brought my general fitness back where it needs to be. I highly recommend Matt and his team for both rehab and PT! – Alex

Before I started training with Matt, I had been a member of gyms but never had the confidence or the knowledge to train properly. Matt is great, he explains all of the exercises and demonstrates whilst telling you how they change your body. He is really encouraging. When I started seeing results I found I was looking forward to the gym! I have now started the 12 week online programme and am learning so much about nutrition, fitness and my body, I am six weeks in and have lost weight and am seeing a real difference in how I feel. My lifestyle has drastically changed since I started working with Matt. I am now confident to use the gym on my own, without being self-conscious or feeling out of place. Matt is patient, friendly and a great trainer.

With Matt I’ve managed to lose almost two stone in about 5 months. He’s so helpful and puts up with my mood swings when I’m having a down day.  He’s helped me get clued up with nutrition and taught me what healthy actually is, rather than my warped ideas on it.
The workout programmes change a lot which means I don’t get bored and my muscles don’t get lazy, and I enjoy all the sessions I have with Matt (even if at the time I give him evil stares), doing a variety of different exercises.
If anyone is hesitating in having him as a PT, I suggest you just go for it, you won’t be disappointed and you’ll have fun at the same time.

I would highly recommend Matt as a Personal trainer. I have come along way since my first personal training session and it is thanks to Matt. He is professional yet makes the sessions fun too – keeps me doing different things so I don’t get bored. I like the fact he helps you work on each muscle group rather than just one thing so you get an all round body workout. Also I have had a couple of sports therapy sessions as well which have really really helped with aches/pains and mobility. Matt definitely knows so much when it comes to the human body and exercise!
