Shaping Futures is the North East’s leading provider of studio-based reformer classes. We continually invest in our space and equipment, introducing new services,  classes and training techniques so our clients can experience maximum benefit from their membership.

What Class is Best for You?

Shaping Futures offers some of the best studio and reformer classes in the North East.  Our trainers are highly qualified, motivational and have many years of training experience, providing our members the opportunity to develop their levels of fitness and strength.  That is why we offer classes for different abilities.

We strongly recommend that you do your personalised gym programme with one of our trainers where you can discuss the ideal classes for you to participate in.

Prior to booking any advanced level class we recommended that you discuss your ability to participate in the class with one of our trainers.  

If You Need To Change or Cancel a Studio Class

  • Each week you can choose which classes you wish to attend. As a member, you may book your classes 14 days ahead to ensure you secure a place in your chosen class.  Some of our classes are very popular and often have a waiting list so we strongly recommend that you book in advance.  To be fair to all members, we cannot hold any un-booked space in any class for any reason.
  • If you know you cannot make a studio class then you can change it to an alternative class providing you contact reception 24 hours’ prior to the time of your booked class.
  • Failure to give 24 hours’ notice to reception will mean that you lose that class. Classes can be cancelled by either calling reception on 0191 386 4865 or by e-mailing info@shapingfutures.co.uk
  • Studio classes cannot be deferred due to holiday or for any other reason.
