Five fitness classes for getting your sweat on

During the pandemic, online gym classes and workouts provided a great substitute for keeping fit. However, recent data shows that in-person fitness classes are back with a bang. In February 2022, fitness app ClassPass saw the most reservations since February 2020 with users booking at 10% higher rates than pre-pandemic times. Mindbody data also reveals that 82% of Mindbody app users are utilising the platform exclusively for in-person bookings, while just 14% are seeking virtual offerings.

With this in mind, we look at five in-person fitness classes to have on your radar.


PSYCLE was founded in 2014, describing their goal as getting people hooked on the transformative power of movement to help them become healthier, happier, and more energetic. Their cycling classes offer a full body workout, featuring hand weight sessions to ensure its not just your legs getting all the attention. Their studios are located in Mortimer Street, Canary Wharf, Clapham and Shoreditch with some offering other classes such as yoga, barre and strength training too.

Winners of the Men’s Health Best Studio Award and the Tatler Gym Award in 2019, FLY LDN focuses on low impact exercises such as yoga, pilates, barre and low impact strength training. They cater to all abilities, and any newbies can purchase an intro offer that gives you two weeks of classes for just £50. That’s 12 classes at an average price of £4 per class. Good luck finding a better deal than that in London!


Caoimhe Bamber left behind a career as a City lawyer to set up Digme in 2015, whilst on maternity leave with her first son. She was inspired by the quality of gym classes in the US, and wanted to bring something similar to the UK.

Classes range from cycling and HIIT to yoga and barre – meaning there’s something for everyone. Check out their studios in Bank, Covent Gardne, Moorgate and Richmond.


Co-founded by by international footballer and four-times Champions League winner, Gareth Bale, ROWBOTS touts itself as the complete workout for your body and mind where you can burn up to 800 calories during 50 minutes of high impact mental and physical conditioning.

Combining powerful floor exercises with intervals on the rowing machine, which the ROWBOTS team suggest is by far the hardest but most effective machine in the gym, there’s no denying this will push your limits.

KOBOX boxing studios is described as ‘where fight club meets nightclub.’ It offers a 50-minute workout that is split into parts. For half of the class, the trainers will take you through rounds of boxing that are projected on the walls to follow. The second half focuses on strength training using free weights, resistance bands, slam balls, landmines and other equipment – so you’ll be feeling the burn all over.
