Five of the Best Gyms in Newcastle

Want to know the best gyms in Newcastle? Look no further than Hussle’s top picks. 

The City of Newcastle Baths 

Newcastle City Baths

The City of Newcastle Baths has the same high-end feel as a hotel gym. They have their own swimming pool, sauna, steam room, and more all available as additional options.

This is the gym many choose if they are looking for a luxury gym-going experience in Newcastle.

The highlight of this gym is the Turkish baths and spa that Hussle members enjoy additional access to, but the venue also has a wealth of other attractions as well as its first class spa.

The facilities at this gym are not quite as extensive as those a serious athlete might need but for the majority of us it is an amazing place to workout.

They have state of the art machines but none of the high tech digital fitness you would expect. They have weights but they don’t have that tailored gym floor that you can use for deadlifting. 

The venue has a wealth of machines, including bikes and cross trainers, but this gym is aimed at the elites who just want to stay toned. You do have the free parking for the hotel though, and that lovely Turkish bath/spa experience.

The City Baths Newcastle is located on Northumberland Road, 0.32 Kilometres away from Haymarket bus and metro station. This gym’s opening hours are Monday – Friday from 7 am to 8:30 pm, then Saturday and Sunday from 8 am to 4 pm.
