Accessing Contours

Contours January 2022 promotion

There are a number of ways in which you can access Contours, including pay as you go, short term packages and value for money memberships.

As a member, you will be able to use all five leisure centres for the gym, swimming and exercise classes.

You can choose to access Contours by:

  • Joining for and committing to 12 months to benefit from a lower price
  • Join and spread the cost with a monthly Direct Debit
  • Pay as you go
  • Access with shorter term packages such as six week and one week passes

Why become a Contours member?

Benefits to becoming a member include a comprehensive induction package to get you on your way, a free easecard and regular check ins with the team to make sure you’re getting the most from your membership.

The comprehensive induction package will depend on your previous exercise history and whether you have an injury, but typically includes:

  • a consultation to establish what you need and what you want to achieve
  • a run through of the various pieces of equipment available and how to use them safely (think intensity level recommendations and range of motion pointers)
  • nutritional guidance (for those who want it)
  • an InBody assessment; and
  • a personalised programme to help you achieve your goals


Please note, 12 month memberships are subject to terms and conditions which mean 12 payments must be made before you can cancel your membership. Early cancellation will be considered for illness, injury, moving out of the area or for severe financial difficulty. Full terms and conditions can be found below.

Memberships can be suspended, for more information please contact the Contours membership team:

Family Gym Sessions

Family Gym Sessions are a great way to introduce young people to the gym environment and the importance of physical activity as part of a healthy lifestyle.

It presents a great opportunity for parents and/or carers to spend some quality time with their children. Gym instructors can help young people (and their parents/carers if necessary!) learn how to safely use equipment in order to help them achieve their goals. 

When accompanied by an adult (age 16 and over) children and young people from the age of 11 can access North Tyneside leisure centres. 

There are no restrictions on when young people can access with an adult, the option is available during all opening hours of the facilities.
