THE BASICS: Clifton Revolution is a high-tech spinning studio in Clifton – you wear heart rate monitors and can see your progress on a big screen (along with everyone else’s) while you get your sweat on. Drop in classes, packages and available on MoveGB. THE HB: Carly THE CLASS: I first waddled up here between Christmas and New Year, and I can tell you, … Read More REVIEW: Clifton Revolution (Spin)

REVIEW: Holly PT, Totally Shredded Drum & Bass Workout

Dark room, thumping drum & bass, disco lights, boxing and MMA/combat inspired moves at Motion Fitness Studios at The Pithay in the centre of the city. This workout is bangin’. £7 drop in (class passes available and also on MoveGB – as of October 2017). THE … Read More REVIEW: Holly PT, Totally Shredded Drum & Bass Workout


BLOG: Your Fitness is YOUR Business (and no one else’s!)

Exercise, working out, moving, sweating, gymming – whatever you call it, fitness is different for everyone. Quite simply, moving more makes you feel good. Moving will do a different thing for every single person – it can ease joint pain, aid digestion, increase your heart strength, make you more lean and alleviate symptoms of depression. You will feel more confident and have better self-esteem … Read More BLOG: Your Fitness is YOUR Business (and no one else’s!)


BLOG: 12 Weeks to a Better Body?

It started in September I’m not sure I like the concept of quick-fix diet and exercise programmes. I think they offer people a way to punish themselves, and I don’t think they’re a sustainable thing to keep up once they’re finished. Sure, they get results. But I’m not sure I like the journey they take someone on, nor the (psychological) destination they often lead someone to. … Read More BLOG: 12 Weeks to a Better Body?

REVIEW: VerveRider+ Wireless Headphones Review

A couple of weeks ago, I nearly choked myself to death by getting tangled in my headphone wires on the treadmill. I went into the same sort of flappy panic that engulfs you when a wasp decides it wants a bite of your lunch, and pretty much made the entire gym floor stare at me in a mixture of confusion and amusement. It was … Read More REVIEW: VerveRider+ Wireless Headphones Review

REVIEW: The Running School

I was invited to The Running School to have my running style analysed using their video technology, and improved with the help of resident expert Nick. As you may know, I host a running club every month and have a funny old relationship with running, so I was interested to see if this could help me improve for the running club, and enjoy the … Read More REVIEW: The Running School


REVIEW: Best’s Bootcamp

THE BASICS: Best’s Bootcamp is a slick treadmill/weights/functional fitness HIIT style bootcamp, tucked up on Villiers street, a stone’s throw from Embankment Station. Their USP is that you have a constant, clear view of the trainer thanks to their 360 video tracking system. It’s pretty sweet. £20 for a drop in class, although packages are available. Your first class is a bargain at a … Read More REVIEW: Best’s Bootcamp


REVIEW: Extreme Kettlebells, MoreFit

THE BASICS: MoreFit offers “Small Group Personal Training” – a dedicated PT taking either individuals or only a few people at a time through their paces. They offer lots of classes in several studios, some super-centrally located for city-workers. I visited Cannon Street, and took a group class.

REVIEW: Pole Fitness, Gymbox (with Chantal Wood, Pole Fitness)

I’d dabbled with Pole Fitness as a student back in my early 20s, and we’d been peeked at through shut curtains and complained about by members of staff. It was a shame because I really enjoyed it, and it made my legs and core incredibly strong. My re-introduction came in the form of an invitation from founder Chantal to come and try out her … Read More REVIEW: Pole Fitness, Gymbox (with Chantal Wood, Pole Fitness)


REVIEW: Groove Cycle

THE BASICS: Hidden within the hallowed grounds of what’s now known as Third Space in Canary Wharf, Groove Cycle is a large spin studio in the main gym. Classes have a strong element of dance and moving to the beat. Music was pop-py and uplifting, and it did feel like we were in some sort of carnival-spinning fusion. £16 per class, changing rooms are … Read More REVIEW: Groove Cycle


REVIEW: Good Vibes- Glow Pilates

THE BASICS: Good Vibes offer a range of classes across two locations in central London (Covent Garden and Fitzrovia). Pilates, yoga, body conditioning and indoor cycling and power plates make up their core timetable. Their “Glow” classes are heated- yum! Good Vibes offer a £45 intro offer (30 days of any classes you like for that price), drop in classes are from £16, and … Read More REVIEW: Good Vibes- Glow Pilates


REVIEW: Psycle Canary Wharf

I’d first reviewed Psycle about 18 months ago, when it opened in a blaze of publicity near Oxford Street. I was (and still am) of the opinion that an indoor cycling class should leave you dripping with sweat and like you’ve just been spat out of a nightclub. For me, that initial experience at Psycle had been a bit… too pretty. A bit too … Read More REVIEW: Psycle Canary Wharf
