If your New Year's resolutions have already fallen by the wayside, kick them back into gear by joining one of the best gyms in the capital.
Maybe you started the year with good intentions that you haven't managed to follow through or perhaps for you, the New Year actually starts in February and you've been giving yourself the first month to get back into the swing of things. No matter what your excuse is, there's no judgement here. So whether you live in the capital or are visiting, broaden your horizons with the best gyms in London.
BEST FOR: SPINNING
If you’re looking for 45 minutes of hardcore cardio and a serious endorphin rush, head to Psycle. With some of the best playlists in the business, instructors that'll push you further than you ever thought possible and a serious feel good vibe about the whole place, it truly doesn’t get better than this.
BEST FOR: BOXING
A gym founded by a world-class athlete is pretty much guaranteed to be one of the best in the business. So it’s no wonder that Anthony Joshua’s Marylebone gym has caught the eye of boxing enthusiasts and first timers alike. With advice and facilities that’d be expected by professional athletes, we can guarantee that BXR is what you need to kick start this year’s fitness journey.
BEST FOR: ALL OVER FITNESS
Beer and turkey still showing from the festive period? Then head to Barry’s Bootcamp and fear not, because this gym guarantees that you’ll burn up to 1,000 calories per class, tone up, shred a huge amount of fat and speed up your metabolism. It's branded as ‘the best workout in the world’, so surely there’s a tiny part of you that at least wants to give it a go? The gym is opening its fourth location in SW1 this year, so there really are no excuses.
BEST FOR: PERSONAL TRAINING
Third Space is all about the bringing the personal touches to life, whether that’s through their state-of-the-art spaces or their world-class personal trainers. They pride themselves on being different from other gyms; each of their spaces is unique, designed so that every person who walks through the door feels as if it’s their own. What’s not to love?
BEST FOR: GROUP CLASSES
Sometimes, walking through the doors of a gym can be the hardest part of any workout. And if you can’t muster the energy to do even that, then try 1Rebel. This is the gym for people who hate gyms, the gym that’s going to get you in great shape – fast, and the gym that doesn’t actually have a gym floor. Specialising in group HIIT (high intensity interval training) classes only, 1Rebel is your best bet to get a gym-honed body in no time. No more excuses…
