5 Recommended Gyms in Central London

Our top picks for the best gyms in central London including gyms in Mayfair, gyms that hold workout classes, and gyms that can provide a personal trainer.

Who said working out has to be boring and tedious? It's the key to looking great, feeling fabulous (and to help blow the cobwebs away from the night before). Here are a few of our favourite gyms in Mayfair , Soho and the surrounding area.

1Rebel (Broadgate)

1Rebel is a no contract, high intensity, dual studio fitness concept in the City of London offering a fitness experience against a back-drop of curated music. It brands itself as the "anti-gym" meaning it's a gym for people who hate gyms. 1Rebel keeps you wanting to come back to train due to its trendy perks; like cold press juice bars, music playlists curated by top DJs, and guess what? Even free beer!

One London (Tower Hill)

Choose a lifestyle, not just another gym. The Tower Hill studio offers boutique fitness classes led by elite coaches. Looking for PT sessions, increasing your cardio performance or beating your PB in the weights room?One London can provide all of this and if you're a newbie and have no idea what a goblin squat is, they advise you arrive early so they can get your technique right before a class. Its expertise is not limited to weights though, they have actually combined both a premium gym and boutique studios under one roof.

Gymbox (Farringdon)

Gymbox is a gym like no other, they offer some of London's wittiest workouts from its 'Tour de Holborn' spinning class to the 80s-flavoured 'Voga' class. A full-size boxing ring dominates the main space, along with a large movie screen. There's also an impressive free weights area, spinning studio and two exercise studios. Don't be put off by the boxing ring, you'll find a more female to male ratio tend to attend this gym. After 6pm you can usually find a DJ on the decks banging out some motivation tune. What's not to like?
