First look inside revitalised historic city centre gem

FITNESS fanatics and sanctuary seekers can get a glimpse into the £7.5m restoration of one of Newcastle’s most-loved buildings.

The highly-anticipated reopening of The City Baths is fast approaching and now, Fusion Lifestyle, the charity behind the redevelopment, has released a sneak preview of what the building’s stunning new health and fitness suite will look like.

The ongoing specialist restoration sees the Grade II historic gem revitalised to combine modern facilities – including a swimming pool, state-of-the-art fitness studios and a spa with treatment rooms.

The new 3D renders of the striking health and fitness suite showcase the ultimate workout space, complete with the latest cardiovascular equipment including running, rowing machines and indoor cycling bikes.

The CGIs also show functional workout spaces and dynamic stretch areas, as well as industry leading strength and conditioning equipment.

Anthony Cawley, operations director at Fusion Lifestyle said: “We know how eager everyone is for The City Baths to reopen and we’re working incredibly hard to create something special that can be enjoyed by the people of Newcastle and surrounding areas.

“We can’t wait for the day the doors reopen and we can show off the restoration first hand, but we now, this sneak peek shows what’s coming very soon.”

Those looking for a workout with a difference will also have access to state-of-the-art, private fitness studios, with the upper level set to host yoga and dance classes.

As well as this, The City Baths will offer a jam-packed calendar building up to 130 exercise classes per week including Fusion’s bespoke HIIT & functional training classes, INTENCITY and popular Les Mills classes.

£7.5m restoration of City Baths going swimmingly

The highly-anticipated reopening of one of NE1’s most-loved buildings is just around the corner.

Work to transform Newcastle’s City Baths is nearing completion and the £7.5m restoration by charity Fusion Lifestyle will see the Grade II building revitalised to combine modern facilities – including a 25m swimming pool, health and fitness suite and a spa with treatment rooms.

Specialist works are also ongoing to bring the building’s much-loved Turkish baths back to life – and Newcastle will soon be home to one of only a few still in operation in England.

Throughout the redevelopment, Fusion has worked with a group of specialist companies including leisure, design and build expert Createability to sensitively restore as many of the building’s original features as possible, while introducing modern architectural structures.

Those looking for a workout with a difference will have access to striking two storey glass-fronted studios, as well as an impressive health and fitness suite, complete with the latest gym and training equipment.

The City Baths will also offer a jam-packed calendar of more than 130 exercise classes per week including Fusion’s bespoke HIIT & functional training classes, INTENCITY and popular Les Mills classes.

The current building opened to the public in 1928, with the history of baths on this site dating back even further, to when famous Newcastle son, John Dobson, built private baths in 1838 at a cost of £9,500.
