What's Hot?

January Sweat Forecast

It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new year, and this is your new sweat forecast...the very first one of 2018, in fact! While the rest of London is making rigorous plans to stick to a regimented exercise schedule, why not make January your chance to try some brand new classes and sport events? Here are a few we think you’ll like:

Yoga & Meditation with a Live Orchestra

GoSweat | Sweat and Sound

A voyage out of this world - this event will be Sweat and Sound’s greatest feat, in size as well as surprises. Expect the unexpected on your descent from earth, into galaxies of colour and sounds of pure magic. The only surprise we will give away, is that your return will be back to a world that feels a little less manic than when you left it.

FREE: Fight Klub, Brixton

GoSweat | Flight Klub Fuse

There are worse ways to spend your New Year’s Day evening than taking on a high intensity workout. Fight Klub, run by the folks at Fuse Fitness, is a fun workout to music which uses a combination of boxing, kick boxing and Thai boxing. It’s great for both individuals and groups, and you’ll work out with shared punch bags to meet others at the session. Exercise, have fun, and definitely relieve stress with this class. Then head straight into the ab workout class which follows it. Can you complete 1,000 ab variation movements in 30 minutes? You will after this workout. Your first class is free as a taster session, and takes place in Brixton.

On the 6th of January, the folks at RunThrough have organised another of their popular events, this time kicking off at Battersea Park bandstand. Runners can sign up for the 5K or 10K, and make their way around the course surrounded by others whose NY resolution is to kick their fitness up a notch. RunThrough have lots of great (and regular) running events across the city, so if this one doesn’t take your fancy, check out their website below for more.

FREE: Table Tennis Tuesdays

It’s up for debate whether table tennis counts as a workout or not, but sweating is pretty much inevitable unless you’re a Forrest Gump-style master ping pong player. If you want to try your hand at this fun game in a friendly atmosphere (for free!), head to this event on the 2nd of January in Clapham Common.
