Echo Business Excellence Award 2022 Weighta and Cakes Sunderland

Weights & Cakes Sunderland... On a journey to make training, exercising and sport more accessible to everyone regardless of race, gender, ability or experience. 


We are a community interest company (CIC) who's objective is to offer a different way of training to those in the community who may not feel comfortable training in a mainstream gym environment.

Our core mission is to increase social inclusion, improve fitness and general well-being as well as improving self confidence amongst those we engage with. We aim to inspire individuals to achieve their full potential to enable them to live a more connected and healthier lifestyle in our safe and inclusive space based in Sunderland, Tyne and Wear.
