BOUTIQUE FITNESS CLASSES
AROUND THE WORLD

Live DJs, 80s aerobics, boxing rings and circuits in cold climates. May we introduce the exercise regimes like no other…

Gyms are back and oh! how we’ve missed them. There’s something about going to the gym that you can’t quite recreate with Joe Wicks workouts and Yoga with Adriene. The fanciful beauty products, the post-workout gossip at the juice bar, oh, and the professional-level instructors of course. From boxing gyms to those that feel more like nightclubs, the fitness market offers countless kinds of activities for you to sweat to, here we offer some of our personal favourites around the world, and how to dress for them. 

BXR

WHAT: Luxury boxing gym fit with an actual boxing ring (great for photo ops, as well as improving your upper cuts).
WHERE:
Marylebone London
VIBE:
Think Rocky but less Philadelphia slums and more West London luxury.
WHY BOTHER? It has everything and more that you could want from a boutique gym; cool concrete industrial interiors, excessive equipment, expert advice on tap and classes that go above and beyond just boxing. Be sure to check out Sweat by BXR, their version of spinning if you will, which uses VersaClimbing machines that are high intensity but low impact on your body.

THE UNIFORM: It's all about performance.

JOHN REED FITNESS

WHAT: Less of a gym, more a fitness-themed nightclub, this place is so much like a party you’ll be wondering whether you came for Burning Man or burning fat.
WHERE: Downtown LA, with other sites in Paris, Berlin, Prague, Istanbul and many, many more.
VIBE: Like a nightclub but instead of downing shots you’re swinging kettlebells.
WHY BOTHER? Live DJs. Pink changing rooms. Neon lights. KOIBIRD doesn’t do gyms, but if we did, this is probably what they’d look like. It’s the fitness forum to be seen and be seen at, and if that kind of ‘scene’ isn’t your thing, then this isn’t for you. And the best part? It’s all the fun of a night out, minus the hangover.

THE UNIFORM: Party in L.A.

RETROSWEAT

WHAT: Aerobics classes heavily inspired by the 80s.
WHERE: Sydney
VIBE: Thong leotards, sweatbands and a synthy soundtrack, this is the Jane Fonda 1982 VHS workout in the 21st century. Bring your legwarmers!
WHY BOTHER? Where many may think exercise is... well, boring, Retrosweat’s commitment to the 80s in aesthetic and spirit really defies this. Whether you’re based in Sydney or invest in an online membership the soundtrack, outfits and routines transport you to another era, but in HD.

THE UNIFORM: Acceptable in the 80s.

BRRRN

WHAT: Hit, slide and circuit classes in cool temperatures.
WHERE: New York
VIBE: Imagine being locked in an industrial fridge where you’re forced to do star jumps to keep warm.
WHY BOTHER? Forget hot yoga, Brrrning up in cool climes helps to burn more calories, plus it helps you feel less fatigued. The slide class is the one to look out for, which using the Brrrn Board makes you move (or slide) in an ice skating-like motion. Err, fun!

THE UNIFORM: Layer up.

ROAR FITNESS

WHAT: Body transformation experts offering Olympic-level personal training, nutrition, therapy and strength coaching that will completely change your life.
WHERE: 3 locations in London
VIBE: The go-to gym for celebrities and the fashion elite, you're likely to bump into Nick Grimshaw on the treadmill or have to fight Vogue Williams for the dumbbells.
WHY BOTHER? Founded by 3 x Olympian Sarah Lindsay, a European gold medalist, 2 x world silver medalist and 10 x British speed skating champion, this is personal training like no other. Boasting suitably spectacular interiors and plentiful machinery, they offer not only an extensive personal training programme, but also a variety of classes to transform the body and mind. And who doesn't want to join a gym founded by a female Olympian?! 

THE UNIFORM: Fashion forward.
