5 Amazing Places to Get Fit in London

There are many options when it comes to work­ing out in Lon­don. There’s plen­ty of parks to go run­ning in, bikes around the city for get­ting around, and of course a wide selec­tion of gyms. We scoured the city for our favourite work­out places and put togeth­er these 5 amaz­ing spots.

Gymbox

Gym­box is a chain of gyms which start­ed back in 2003 in its Hol­born loca­tion. There are eight loca­tions around the city and when you look at the sched­ules they offer you real­ly get a glimpse into how com­mit­ted they are to fit­ness. Flat­line is con­sid­ered the hard­est class in the world, and they have oth­er amaz­ing class­es such as Aer­i­al Pilates, Cave­man and Pad­dle­board Yoga.

If you’re not into the clas­si­cal work­ing out, Gym­box gyms come with box­ing rings, and even a res­i­dent DJ. There’s no need to work out with­out enjoy­ing it!

Frame

If you’re look­ing for some­thing a lit­tle more light­heart­ed and pos­i­tive, Frame might be a good option for you. With sev­er­al loca­tions around the city (near­est to our prop­er­ties being Vic­to­ria or Queen’s Park), you can enjoy a good work­out wher­ev­er you are. The main­ly offer abs work­outs and yoga, but they have some inter­est­ing options such as a Run­ning Club and ‘80s Aer­o­bics. That’s def­i­nite­ly one way to glam up a work­out.

Equinox

Equinox is def­i­nite­ly a very high class gym, with a price tag to match. Mem­ber­ships start around £200 a month, but it is well worth it. With the mem­ber­ship you get access to a box­ing stu­dio, spin stu­dio, pilates stu­dio, spa, per­son­al train­ing and a mem­bers’ lounge. You get tow­els and beau­ty prod­ucts in the chang­ing rooms as well.

Want some­thing even extra? You can get your laun­dry done there too whilst you work out.

BLOK London

BLOK start­ed as a bou­tique gym in a for­mer ware­house, with the vibes of a Berlin chill spot. It’s class-based and pay as you go, which is great for those who strug­gle to find time to go con­sis­tent­ly. They have some amaz­ing class­es depend­ing on what you want — HIIT, Ton­ing, Box­ing, and Pilates — and well thought out chang­ing facil­i­ties to make your whole gym expe­ri­ence pleas­ant.

Another Space

Peo­ple are no longer enjoy­ing the month­ly fees of gyms, and so Anoth­er Space was opened to com­bat this. Pay-as-you-go only, Anoth­er Space offers three class­es: HIIT, Cycle, and Yoga. It has a very open space ambi­ence and is great when you’re want­i­ng a quick work­out. There is also a small cafe which can be great as a post-work­out snack.
