This centrally located gym offers some of London's wittiest workouts from its 'Tour de Holborn' spinning class to the 80s-flavoured 'Voga' class. Located underneath High Holborn, this compact space combines the atmosphere of a nightclub with state-of-the-art facilities. A full-size boxing ring dominates the main space, along with a large movie screen. There's also an impressive free weights area, spinning studio and two exercise studios. While the boxing theme might suggest a macho environment, more than 50 per cent of members are women. A newer branch in Covent Garden (at 42-49 St Martins Lane, WC2) boasts a vast studio and Olympic-sized boxing ring. Further branches in Bank, Farringdon and Westfield London.

Dishonest staff, money centric mindset.. They first promise something and then they charge your for your their faults. What happened is I was in a contract that will end as I would go abroad for a few months and I talked about this when I was starting my contract. Everything was fine till that day came and I wanted to cancel my membership. At first I went and signed a paper to cancel it and they said that it was possible to freeze for two months and I accepted. After a while they sent me an email (just an email no call) saying that it is not possible to freeze for two months. And then I changed my decision and wanted to cancel. What they said was sooo funny they charged me for the month that I would not be here. And the reason is I missed the notice period. I still have the paper I signed which is signed before the notice period. I sent them the paper I signed and talked about the faults they made and the misinformation. In stead of apologising for their fault they sent me a form to fill my details. Moreover I was abroad for a while and could not check my emails. And when I got back, I received an email saying that they are adding admission fee onto the payment that I have not made. Just an email? How can that happen? What they did was pretty annoying and still trying to charge me for it. I have introduced 3 friends there and now I am spreading the word, never ever in my life I will introduce anyone to Gymbox and I will never go. Do not believe what they say, so dishonest. Think five times before you become a member!!!!
Gymbox has been the best gym I've ever been a member of. I've been a member for 6 months now and have no real complaints! The facilities in each of the branches are all really new, there is ample equipment/machines and the classes never feel too crowded. As someone who loves doing classes, I'm spoilt for choice and always find myself trying new ones. The staff have always been really helpful when I've needed them. The brand is all about having fun & working hard, and it really lives up to it!
Excellent experience, something completely different to keep you fit without exercise becoming tedious (we've all been there). There are multiple Gymbox venues across London, you can find your closest one at http://mylocalpitch.com/, and keep your eye out for their deals! Offering different sport in London to keep it fun! Again, really enjoyable, fun and different exercise!
