London’s GymBox Continues to Rock the Gym World
I admit it, I’m a gym rat; but I live in LA, and that’s one of the prerequisites to living in this city. Whether you go to the gym to work out or just to “work it,” the gym is part of the LA lifestyle. When it comes to gyms, there are gyms and there are gyms; so when I come across a gym-gym, it’s like finding an exotic destination. That ultimate destination at the moment is a solid 11,000 miles away in London called GymBox .
Unlike anything you have ever experienced, Gym Box continues to re-invent the gym experience. The members here are getting hot and sweaty with classes like Stiletto workouts that are done in heels and designed to tone your legs as well as Boob Aerobics – yes, I said “boob aerobics.”
When your workouts are forever changing, you’re more apt to stick with it, and Gym Box knows how to keep it exciting. The gym’s newest classes include Lady Gaga dance classes which allow you to bring your inner Gaga out and Rave classes that bring an explosion of energetic music, glow sticks, sunglasses, and trampolines to the fat-burning process.
Other stand-outs at this super cool gym include Techno spinning DJ’s, Cage Fighting classes, and an over-all party atmosphere that I wish could be transported to the states asap.
If you enjoy working out and want to be on stage, so to speak, then GymBox in Covent Garden is the spot. Housed in the former Lumiere Cinema, the old theater got a substantial face-lift and has developed into a space that’s state-of-the-art with a distinctly cinematic/club feel.
