Our fully equipped gyms are relaxed and friendly and one of our trained members of staff will complete an induction with you to establish a plan suitable for you where appropriate.

There is no contract and no monthly fee and you can even pay as you go from £3.00 a session.

Monthly memberships are only £15 and you can cancel at any time.

We reopened our gyms to the public on Monday 27 July.  At first we are operating reduced opening hours and these will gradually increase as we moved forwards.

At both the Health Resource Centre and The Lemington Centre gyms we now have an appointment slot booking system.  You can book a slot one day in advance by ringing 0191 272 4244 (for the Benwell gym) and 0191 264 1959 (for the Lemington gym).

We will be open Monday to Friday and the available slots at both gyms are:

  • 9.15 to 10.15am
  • 10.45 to 11,45am
  • 12.15 to 1.15pm
  • 1.45 to 2.45pm
  • 3.15 to 4.15pm
  • 5.15 to 6.15pm (Mondays & Wednesdays only at The Health Resource Centre)

There are six places for each time slot.

Please note that Tuesday and Friday mornings at the Benwell gym are women only.

This is important information to read in relation to how we will be operating in line with Public Health Guidance, we thank you for your patience and co-operation while we introduce this new way of working.

Places in each class are very limited and social distancing measures are in place, this means booking a place by telephone is essential.

Costs vary for each session and our staff will advise you about costs when you contact us.





Joining our Gyms

If you are interested in becoming a member of our gym, then we will need to ensure that there is no underlying health reason that would prevent you from doing this.
