I know no one likes a self-confessed gym addict – but after joining GYMBOX it would be fair to say I have become completely obsessed with the gym.
GYMBOX (which was born out of a West-end car park in 2003) has a totally unique and fresh approach to fitness, which blows the beige, boring and snooty gym clubs out of the water. Live resident DJs, neon lights, the club-like interior and quirky classes replace all of the predictable things you’d expect from a gym – not to mention the “Very Personal Trainers”, who are all extremely good looking.
GYMBOX’s philosophy is that there should never be pain without pleasure – so they’ve designed over 100 unique ‘sweat fest’ classes (which I can vouch for) to ensure working out is never boring or feels like a chore.
Some of my faves include…
A class completely dedicated to lifting, shaping and toning your bum and thighs (every girl’s dream). Be prepared for a LOT of squats and lunges.
Bikes and Beats
A super high intensity spinning class where the lights are dimmed low and the music is jacked up.
You’ll be jumping, pulling, pushing, climbing and lifting. Be prepared for ANYTHING.
A combination of ballet and pilates (as the name suggests…) to build core flexibility and muscle strength.
An intense cardio and conditioning class designed to help women achieve the enviable curves of Heff’s Playboy Bunnies.
So if you’ve got your sights set on a drop dead gorgeous bod for summer then I suggest you get your ass to one of the seven GYMBOX clubs spread across London.
You won’t regret it – the eye candy alone is worth it…
