To create a safer environment for our customers, you now need to book a slot when visiting our gyms, all of which have now reopened.
Before attempting to book, remember you will need to reactivate your membership first.
Birtley Leisure Centre gym is not part of GO Gateshead. Visit the Lifestyle Fitness website for more information on their reopening plans.
How to book
You must book a session in advance, or you will not be able to use the gym.
You can book a session through the booking site used for fitness classes and activities. If you have not used this site before, you will need your GO Gateshead card to set up an account.
To book a gym session:
- go to leisurebookings.gateshead.gov.uk/Horizons/gateshead
- select classes from the options
- choose the date you want to book
- click the search button
You should then see all the available time slots and remaining spaces. Once logged in, you should then be able to book the timeslot you want.
You can make a gym booking up to seven days in advance. Strictly only one session is permitted per day, per member.
Visiting the gym
If you arrive at the gym without booking a session in advance, we will be unable to let you in. We will not be accepting any bookings or payments at the leisure centre.
Your booking will last for 55 minutes, which includes the time it takes to enter and exit the leisure centre. It also gives us time to clean the gym before the next session.
