Down a staircase adjacent to â€˜90s-hotspot St. Martinâ€™s Lane Hotel, arriving inside Londonâ€™s hottest gym is a bewildering experience of black-painted walls, neon lighting and central DJ booth vibrating in techno-bass. A serious-gym crowd of local fashion types and pasty-businessmen with well-paid trainers immerse themselves into a cardio-universe of 70-plus treadmills, TV-topped elliptical machines and Playstation-enabled bikes.
Brit-TV heartthrobs swap sweat with London housewives in an urban-hip gym that could double as one of Sohoâ€™s hottest nightclubs.
With funky-urban elements reminiscent of NYCâ€™s original Crunch Gym, this ultra-trendy club offers a massive fitness program with classes ranging from American-style bootcamp and African dance to BeeGee Boogie (complete with Afro-wigs) and Brazilian ju-jitsu. A comprehensive spinning, yoga and boxing program includes semi-professional instructors to show the difference between an uppercut and downwardâ€"dog.
