I need to improve my diet. Can Wellgate help?
You are not alone. 75% of us will eventually eat ourselves into the hospital. Diet related disease including obesity is the fastest growing preventable conditions facing our country.

I read that Wellgate is for the "mature market". What does that mean?
At Wellgate, we define the “mature market” more as a lifestyle choice than a particular age group. Wellgate is designed to cater to adults who are looking for a premium experience delivered by a club that truly cares.
Our service culture, quality of facility, the amenities that come standard with the membership and the programs and services we offer are for people who want to feel “pampered” and who seek more from their wellness experiences. We offer amenities and community offers that show our members we want them to stay longer and keep on coming back for more!
Wellgate has an indoor “saltwater pool”. Why saltwater?
The long term health and safety of our members is paramount to us. That is why we offer Redding’s only saltwater indoor pool.
Although most of us have become used to the smell and “sting” of chlorine when swimming in a public pool, it is not the only option for keeping the water clean and safe. Saltwater pool systems use salt to produce the chlorine needed, at much safer levels than traditional chlorine systems.
The major benefits of saltwater over chlorine include:
1. It is safer to use than chlorine
2. It is gentle on the eyes and skin
3. It produces a “soft water” feel
How is Wellgate different from other gyms around town?
Wellgate is not a gym … it is a club devoted to personalized service and upscale amenities. We represent a lifestyle brand that encourages healthy and inspired living specifically for the mature residents of Redding.
Offering an unparalleled, all-encompassing member experience, Wellgate will set the bar when it comes to embracing our members including a relationship-based culture, commitment to a comprehensive wellness plan (featuring group exercise classes, personal training, lifestyle nutrition services, educational workshops and lifestyle seminars) and more.
We promise an extraordinary, warm and inviting atmosphere, a culture that fosters and encourages complete wellness, and all of the tools and experts you need to see incredible results.
Is the club under new ownership?
Yes. Wellgate Sports Club is under new ownership and leadership (a team industry veterans with over 75 years of combined leadership experience).
Why is Wellgate taking over the club?
The property the club is built on has been recently sold and the new owners were looking for a long-term business partner to rebuild the club and invest in the community. Wellgate has signed 10 year lease and intends on creating a truly premium club to service the mature market in Redding.
What changes will I see?
There will be significant improvements and upgrades to both the interior and exterior of the building. Wellgate is making a large capital investment in order to bring Redding the very best in facilities, people and premium services. We understand we need to regain the trust of the community ... and that starts with putting our money where are mouth is.
Will there be staff changes?
Yes. We are raising the bar in all areas of the club. Staff will be the key to delivering our promise of an "Exceptional Experience Everyday".
