One of the things I found myself missing a surprising amount during lockdown was a proper, fancy gym. Faced with my cramped living room and a lacklustre pile of weights, I craved the sleek changing rooms, the shiny clean spaces and the dramatic flashing lights. I couldn't honestly say that I had a better workout there but it was absolutely a better experience. Unsurprisingly, I am eager to go back.
Now, new gyms are built to look GOOD. Sure, they're still there to get you fit but chances are you're more likely to keep going back to a place that you feel good about walking into.
Nowhere is this more evident than London. And it makes sense – if your house is a dingy studio flat with no windows, why wouldn't you want your gym to look nice? Here, we round up some of the best-looking places to work out. On top of that, they all have precautions in place to keep you safe from COVID as you sweat.
