The Prime Minister has today set out the next steps in the easing of lockdown. See the press conference at Youtube: Prime Minister's Coronavirus press conference (10 May 2021) for details.

Between 4.00pm on Wednesday 12 May and 7.30am on Thursday 13 May, the following systems will be unavailable due to essential maintenance: our online council tax, business rates and housing benefit overpayments service, our welfare assistance form and our test and trace payments form. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Check how busy your gym is


Check how busy your local gym is before you attend a session.

Using gym equipment

You don't need to book online if you are using the gym . You can just turn up - use our checker to see how busy your local gym is before you arrive.

  • 0-74% (green) means there is plenty of space in the gym.
  • 75-89% (amber) means the gym is getting busy and you may need to queue when you arrive.
  • 90% and over (red) means the gym is full or closed - you can visit an alternative gym or check back later to see if there's space.

Weights areas

If you want to use the weights areas at Abbey, Chester-le-Street, Meadowfield Leisure Centre and Spennymoor Leisure Centre you will still need to book online.

Swimming and outdoor fitness classes

If you wish to swim or attend an outdoor fitness class as part of your gym membership you need to book online.
