Based in Almondbury, Huddersfield, Health Shack is a more than just a gym- it aims to provide a highly professional and caring service to the community by offering a completely holistic approach to fitness, health and wellbeing. Established in 2016, our team genuinely care and go above and beyond to help you in achieving your goals, with highly qualified occupational and alternative therapists and personal trainers available to assist and encourage you.
With a Company ethos that ‘everyone has the right to exercise without feeling embarrassed or self-conscious’, Health Shack’s relaxing and encouraging atmosphere to train in welcomes all ages, sizes and levels of fitness, including those who may be less-able bodied than others.
Our power-assisted machines work on the principle of motorised resistance training, meaning that there is no stress on joints but instead everyone is able to achieve core strength, muscular tone and a fluid range of movement through our smart 30-minute circuits.
All of the above is enhanced and complemented by our cardiovascular suite equipped with the latest workout machines, battle ropes, TRX bands, slam balls, Suisse balance balls and treadmill. Not to be boring, we also encourage all members to take part in boxing, weights, kettlebells and stretching.
The possibilities are endless and all endeavours are supervised and guided by our highly skilled professionals and personal trainers. A gym with a difference – that’s Health Shack.

Loving my time at health shack, all the ladies are wonderful, nothing too much trouble, so kind hearted. Just had a wonderful foot massage in the treatment room with Tina and a big thank you to Annette, Danni and Beverley who help me on the machines and moving around the room (struggling with progressive M.S.)
I suffer from mobility issues including balance, after signing up to Health Shack this has vastly improved! my strength and coordination have improved too + I have lost weight and my overall fitness is so much better than it was before! There are a number of clients who have joined HS who have Multiple Sclerosis and other health issues, they all talk about the massive benefits that Health Shack have to offer! I myself have included in my package a sauna which boosts health benefits and is a great endorphin boost, you really do leave the sauna feeling refreshed!! I also treat myself to a once a month massage with Tina which includes a facial, so therapeutic! you can choose not to have the facial though!! I really cannot recommend highly enough the immense benefits Annette and her team have to offer, it's made a massive difference to my wellbeing, emotionally and physically! I myself was recommended to Health Shack by a friend who wanted to lose weight as well as improve health problems!!
Fabulous. Annette, the owner, is a god-send and so is the Health Shack. My husband has had 2 strokes and heart surgery and as well as building up his confidence he is also gaining strength. Annette is very knowledgeable in rehabilitation as well as supportive and giving valuable advice. Recommend a million times over.
Excellent gym aimed at people who are in a sense broken
Expertly guided through supported exercise equipment, that are tailored to individuals needs. After only 5 sessions I feel mobility increased & mental well-being improved.
Unlike any other gym I've ever known. Staff are dedicated and committed to your whole health and wellbeing and often go beyond the call of duty. The infra red sauna is superb and helps so much with my pain and skin issues. Very reasonably priced as well for what you get. Can't recommend them highly enough
A real hidden gem in the village of Almondbury. I cannot recommend this place enough! I have only had 2 sessions on the shape master machines and one infrared sauna, and I feel like a new woman already.
The staff are all lovely girls, and could not be more helpful. I leave each day feeling thoroughly spoilt and on top of the world. Every little touch has been thought of, even a smoothie shot after the sauna - Delicious ! I cannot remember a time when I felt this well. UPDATE .... 5 weeks and I cannot believe the difference!! My core feels strong like I would never have believed! I really enjoy my sessions..... Annette and her girls are lovely ladies ..... I have signed up for the year - try and stop me going!
A fantastic place to help with all sorts of exercise goals. The Health Shack caters for those who wish to improve their overall level of fitness, those who wish to rehabilitate following injuries, illness or operations, those who wish to lose inches or just want to feel better about themselves in a caring supportive environment. The exercises are tailored to the individual and help you to see visible results all without having to don Lycra and sweat profusely.
Health Shack are amazing... Annette and Danni in particular - you ladies have really helped me and motivated me to get fit. You give great advice on how to use all the equipment and even if you have any injuries (I have a bad knee and lower back) this can be worked around with a programme to suit your ability. They have fantastic knowledge and are happy to share this and help wherever they can. They will give you the motivation to push yourself, but only as far as you are comfortable. There's always a fab atmosphere whenever I go and they play great music too :) You have helped me immensely and i thank you for that <3
