In this week's issue, we're lacing up our running shoes and embracing the Friday night gym scene that seems to be taking over London at the moment. We take a closer look at the city's growing obsession with working out and pick out London's swankiest gyms, so you can get your sweat on in style. We also chat to four Londoners whose exercise initiatives have changed their lives and other people's, including a man who drove a a Boris Bike to France, pedalled it up a French mountain and drove it back to England again, all within 24-hours.
Don't fancy getting sweaty? We've also rounded up a load alternative activities that take strength, stamina and competitive zeal. Take your pick from movie marathons, food challenges and battle of home-baked goods. Elsewhere, we pick out the best events commemorating 400 years since Shakespeare's death, and chat to London's diehard punks about the year-long Punk London festival.
