One could think that finding a good fitness gym in London shouldn’t be a major problem, seeing that we sure don’t have a shortage of gyms here in the British capital.
On the other hand, it is exactly this abundance of fitness gyms and yoga studios that can make the search overwhelming. One reason for this is also that lots of the good, often small and independent gyms have been bought out by our big fitness chains.
Ever since many of the former independent gyms in London are gone I also happen to notice a drop in quality with many of those fitness gyms. When I say “quality” I mean both, the quality and friendliness of the service but also the overall quality of the gyms, in particular their equipment.
So as it happens, even with plenty of gyms to choose from in London, it may well be that money to spend some time to find one of those remaining quality gyms.
What about East London?
What I said above obviously also applies to East London. If you’re looking for a good gym in London Fields I can recommend that you see London Fields Fitness. This gym is one of my favourites especially for their variety of classes and training courses. Fancy Pilates in Hackney? Then you should check them out! One of those gyms where you cannot only go to when you want to lose weight or want to build your muscles, they also have great yoga classes that I can highly recommend to you.
