Total Boxer gym Hornsey

The super sociable Total Boxer gym has been helping slebs and normal folks throw punches in the name of getting fit since 2012. As the city's love for boxing shows no signs of slowing down, TB has now decided to open a second north London site. It’ll be the home of its signature classes, BoxingYoga and Get FIT Not HIT, which promises to get you ‘fighting fit in a seriously fun way, without getting hit in the face’. Phew...

Cost: £10 for the first class, £15 afterwards
