GYM LEVEL 2 AND PERSONAL TRAINER LEVEL 3 COURSES ARE AVAILABLE IN ONLINE FORMAT ONLY
Gateshead Leisure Centre – Newcastle
Gateshead Leisure Centre is a council run health and fitness facility within Gateshead town centre. The venue provides us the room and appropriate equipment to deliver virtually our whole extensive list of courses to our student’s, however the venue is only appropriate to our part time students due to the sheer member size of the venue, meaning we only deliver our part time options in Newcastle.
Getting to the Venue
The Leisure centre is located right next to the town centre Library, and is accessible via public transport, cycling and car – however be aware that there is limited parking available within the surrounding areas.
The Leisure Centre is situated within walking distance of the Metro centre in Gateshead, so there are plenty of choice for food & drink.
