Sturdy Branches Health Club

Sturdy Branches Health Club

Sturdy Branches Health Club is where you go to build up an appetite for all those yummy Disney snacks, or to, ahem, work off all those yummy Disney snacks after the fact!


Located inside the Villas at Wilderness Lodge building, Sturdy Branches is outfitted with cybex weight machines, a smith machine, cables, swiss balls and mats, free weights, and a full array of cardiovascular equipment. The club has three televisions for entertainment during your workout.

Fitness hours are 6am-9pm daily, though you can check with the front desk to get a free 24-hour key card giving you access to the club equipment whenever you need it. This is for Wilderness Lodge resort guests only. If you are not a guests of Wilderness Lodge and Villas, you can still use the facilities for a cost of $12 per day.

Plenty of Cardio Machines

We’re pretty active when we’re at home and we have no problem getting in a full workout at Sturdy Branches, so you shouldn’t be concerned about having to modify your normal gym routine when visiting the Wilderness Lodge.

Personal training is available with 24 hours advance notice. Call 407-938-4222 for an appointment.
