About Time: You Discovered 3 New London Fitness ConceptsBy Angelica Malin
Looking for a new workout in London? We’ve discovered some amazing new exercise classes and gyms in the capital. And once you’ve sweated it all out, clean your skin with Radha beauty products for a special, natural finish. Here’s three new workouts to try:
KXU is London’s first pay-as-you go fitness concept to combine all 3 principles of fitness; Strength, Stretch and Cardio with supportive spa therapies and nutrition all under one ultra-sleek roof. This project will be a class based, PAYG gym/lifestyle space, which caters to the fun, more boutique gym experience we have seen on the market in recent years, but taken to a whole new level. Unlike competitors, KXU will have a spa offering – from anti-ageing and exercise recovery, through to pampering massage and beauty essentials, the KXU spa houses a state of the art, whole body Cryotherapy suite, a luxury infrared sauna, and leaders in physical, massage and beauty therapies.
2. Aerial Silks and Hoop at Skylab Studio Camden
The class is an introduction to aerial silks and hoop and is a great alternative to traditional fitness classes in gyms or outdoors (you go up in the air to exercise!). It’s not all easy, and you will definitely be challenged beyond your normal comfort zones, but that’s what makes it so much fun. They guarantee you will find yourself buzzing afterwards with the adrenaline rush of it all.
3. Metabolic London
London‘s newest and hottest fitness studio, Metabolic London in Mornington Crescent (just 3 stops away from Ox Circus). This is the functional training studio that is taking it back to basics, their specialism is strength and HIIT training, whilst they are also launching the UK’s first boutique group rowing class, set to push you past your limits.
