Little Venice

BOX CLEVER SPORTS

Intense circuit classes mixed with boxing drills are sure to make you sweat like a beast. It is a no BS gym. No fancy changing rooms or crazy machines. But boy do you work hard! It is impossible to come here consistently and not improve your fitness levels. It’s healthy competition at its best!

CORE COLLECTIVE

The TRX classes are INSANELY HARD. You don’t know what working your core feels like until you do this! The small class sizes are great for perfecting your form. Even as a beginner, all of the focus was on strength, improving my mobility, and making sure I could do all of the exercises. Dim lights also make this a great place if you tend to get over critical in front of mirrors.

THE HARD YARD

The Hard Yard trains and employs people leaving prison to lead workouts across the city. If you are after an absolutely no-nonsense approach to fitness, this is it.  Positive action in 45 minutes of body weight exercises, which even improves our society. It is a win-win.

– Disco Yoga

– Kobox

– BXR

HYDE PARK: One lap around is 6km! Another great run is to go from

Hyde Park to Battersea Park.

Primrose Hill: Great for hill sprints. Best view of the city and you can jog in nearby Regents Park.

Hampstead Heath: Hill sprints and trail running in the city:

Richmond Park: For longer trail runs. Keep an eye out for deer!
