Attending a fitness class 

You must book your chosen fitness class in advance. This can be done up to seven days beforehand.

Due to limited class sizes, try and avoid booking multiple classes on the same day to allow fair access for all. You can book a gym and or swim session to complement your class if you wish.

Arriving for your fitness class

Please aim to arrive at least five minutes before your fitness class is due to start. This will help ensure a smooth transition between classes and avoid any unnecessary delays.

You may have to queue outside of the leisure centre before your class starts. Our staff will let you know when it is safe to enter the building.

You are required to wear a face covering while moving through the leisure centre. You do not need to wear one while in your fitness class.

Once in the leisure centre, follow signage and the one-way systems and maintain a 2-metre distance from other where possible. 

You may leave before your fitness class ends, but please do not stay on-site beyond your pre-booked class time.

Before you enter the fitness class studio

Although there are changing rooms and lockers available, we ask that you arrive for your class ready to train and shower and change at home where possible. 

You should only bring essential items required for exercise. Bags are not permitted in the studio. 

Water fountains will not be available so please bring your own refreshments. Vending machines will be available for your use. 

You must bring your own exercise mat to any class that requires them. No GO Gateshead owned mats will be available for use. 

For Aquafit and Aqua-HIIT classes we recommend you bring your own aqua shoes. 

Customer toilets are available for all leisure centre users.

During your fitness class

All studios feature clear floor markings to help you keep a safe distance from others. Please remain within your designated 'zone' at all times.

No classes that require multi-user equipment are currently running. Any equipment you do use is sanitised in advance of each session and will be used by just yourself throughout the duration of the class.

As soon as your class ends please vacate the studio immediately. This allows us time to clean and sanitise before the next class.

Now you've familiarised yourself with the new regulations and processes regarding the reopening of our fitness class studios, it's time to book a fitness class.
