About Time: 5 Things to Do in London This WeekBy Adam Hassanali
Looking for fun things to do in London this week? Here’s what our London Editor has been loving in the city recently:
The Rundown: Set within Chelsea’s vibrant Pavilion Road community and featuring 3 boutique fitness spaces, KXU offers pay-as-you-go fitness classes. The gym combines three principles: Strength, Stretch and Cardio, all under one roof.
The Class: You can expect a heart raising 45-minute class which is split between time on the treadmill and floor work. On the treadmill there is a mix of intervals, sprints, and inclines, you can tailor to your own ability – whether you are a long-distance runner or gentle jogger, you set the pace. The floor-work incorporates 4 different exercises mix between bodyweight and weighted exercises.
What We Thought: It’s a very tough workout, however the amazing music and high vibes studio will keep you motivated the whole way along.
Where: 241 Pavilion Road, London, SW1X 0BP
What: Based in the heart of Soho NQ64 is bringing a unique blend of bespoke cocktails and a night of nostalgia to London. The neon splattered walls as you walk in take you back to the 90’s with the classics such as Time Crisis, Guitar Hero as well as the classic consoles
Drink: The bar is stocked with an incredible range of beers from a London Brewery. The cocktails are the main attraction though named after some of the gaming classics you can enjoy a refreshing Donkey Kolada or a Pacs Punch.
