Please note that the gym will be closed all day on Saturday 20 April 2019 to allow for the completion of plastering of the ceiling following work in the loft space. We apologise for any inconvenience.
During May and June 2018, there will be a qualified fitness instructor available one evening a week in the gym at the RTC.
Jack Dowson is a local personal trainer holding a level 3 qualification and will be available to assist and advise gym members to help them to get the most out of their membership. Including how to:
• decide what you want to achieve from coming to the gym
• use the different pieces of equipment to safely and effectively meet your fitness goals
• vary your routine in order to keep it interesting
• avoid ‘plateau’ and keep on making progress.
So, whether you are new to exercise and want to make a start, or an experienced gym user looking for fresh ideas, come along and have a chat with Jack. He will be in the gym between 6.30pm and 9pm on the following evenings:
• Thursday 3 May
• Thursday 10 May
• Thursday 17 May
• Thursday 24 May
• Thursday 31 May
• Tuesday 5 June
• Tuesday 12 June
• Tuesday 19 June
• Tuesday 26 June
The membership numbers of everyone that attends the gym during May and June will go in to a draw. 3 lucky winners can choose between a free one to one personal training session with Jack or one-month free membership of the gym. So don’t forget to sign in and include your membership number when you do!
If you are not yet a member of the gym, join during May or June and get one month membership free - see membership page

On Saturday 7th February Otterburn Gym formally opens its doors. There will be a launch event at the RTC Sports Centre from 4pm to 8pm open to all. There will be food available and the bar will be open. Please come along, take a look at the new gym and the equipment we have on offer and join us for some curry and a beer.
During this time there will be opportunity for the first members to go through the induction process. Further induction sessions are planned for the following week so don't worry if you can't make it.
Anyone who has already expressed an interest in joining the gym will receive an email in the next 24 hours explaining the membership process in detail, and from that point we will open the membership page on the website where you can formally apply for membership.
There have been some delays, but finally we have the opening of Otterburn Gym in our sights. The first items of equipment arrived yesterday and we are nearly ready to open the doors. All being well, the gym will be open in the first week of February, and we have agreed a membership cost of £15 per month or if paid in advance £150 annually.
Cross trainer and rowing machine are still waiting delivery, but I'm sure you will agree that the Gym is starting to look good.
Work on the new gym started on Monday 13 October.
Two changing rooms at the east end of the building are being remodelled to form the space to accommodate the new gym, and the first task was to remove the internal walls separating the changing rooms and showers to create an open space ahead of fitting out
We are hopeful that construction work will be complete inside 3 weeks, once that has happened the empty gym can be fitted with equipment and opened. Once we have a firm opening date monthly and annual gym memberships will be available.
Otterburn Gym will open at the Otterburn RTC in November 2014
