Memberships of ClassPass, the app for Londoners who love working out but hate working out in the same place, give you access to some of the best gyms and exercise classes London has to offer. You don’t need to commit – or lose your mind staring at the same section of wall every time you use the treadmill. 

You can stretch out at a premium yoga class on a Monday, make use of a fancy studio’s fluffy towels and luxe toiletries on a Tuesday and get personal-training-style Pilates attention on a Wednesday. And, thanks to ClassPass’s credit system, you can often work out at studios where the membership would otherwise be way out of your price range. Winner. Here are the best classes in London on ClassPass right now. 

RECOMMENDED: The best gyms in London

1. Signature at Barrecore

Sport and fitness Marylebone

Ballet dancers might look delicate, but beneath their slender physiques lies superhuman strength. Barrecore is your chance to try out some ballet-inspired moves, perfect for toning up and building stamina. The class focuses on small, intense movements with a high number of repetitions – it’s impossible not to feel the burn and shaking muscles are the aim here. It’s high-intensity yet low-impact and suitable for all fitness levels. Oh, and the studios are lovely. A classic for a reason. 

Various locations. From 11 credits, usually £28 a class.

2. Reformer Pilates at Frame

Sport and fitness Yoga and Pilates Shoreditch

New to those weird springy beds, straps and hoops? You’ve come to the right place. Frame’s basic pilates reformer class will walk you through the techniques slowly, and once you have a few of those sessions under your belt, you can slide on over to the regular classes. It also does a dynamic class for master core blasters who love to feel the burn. 

Various locations. From six credits. Usually £22 a class.

3. Reshape at 1Rebel

Sport and fitness Liverpool Street

1Rebel is so cool it hurts (especially when you’re 45 minutes into a workout). Exposed bricks, copper piping and dark paintwork give the studio an industrial feel that’s offset by fancy toiletries and a smoothie bar. Reshape is the club’s best HIIT class and is available in different formats: full body, upper body or lower body, plus abs. Whatever you pick, your time is split between intense strength training using dumb-bells and short, sharp bursts on the treadmill. Prepare for some serious sweat.

Various locations. From 12 credits. Usually £22 a class. 

4. Beginners Reformer at Ten Health & Fitness

Sport and fitness Yoga and Pilates Chiswick

Serious about this pilates business? Ten Health & Fitness limits its classes to ten people for each session so you can expect a personal-trainer-style experience with plenty of hands-on adjustments. Classes are taken mainly lying down on a reformer platform, which is an ideal stopgap between your bed at home and your desk at work on a Monday morning. Facilities here are good with towels and nice products in the showers. We like. 

Various locations. From 12 credits. Usually £30 a class.

5. City Strongman at The Foundry

Sport and fitness Gyms and fitness centres City of London

Designed to be ‘the toughest workout in the city’, this class uses the type of equipment you’d normally expect to see on TV’s ‘World’s Strongest Man’. Think hardcore sets of tyre-flipping, sled-dragging and the dreaded Atlas Stones. The brainchild of former rugby star Ben Gotting, this class will help you burn fat and improve strength. 💪

Various locations. From five credits. Usually £20 a class.

6. Cycle at Core Collective

This swish fitness studio is more than just a place to sweat. Bikes are matched with colour monitors so you can see how hard you’re pushing those pedals. Head’s up: the instructors are very demanding (in a good way). Core Collective is at the pricy end of the spectrum, but staff always go the extra mile and you’re paying for a gorgeous place to keep fit in (plus it’s much cheaper if you book via ClassPass. Result.). Afterwards, make the most of the huge café area by having a well-earned sit down. It’s so lovely, you’ll want to linger.

Various locations. From nine credits. Usually £25 a class.

7. Re:Sound at Re:Mind

Sport and fitness Meditation Victoria

You’re more likely to space out than sweat here. It might look like a high-end fitness studio, but instead of barre or pilates, Re:Mind offers drop-in meditation classes for frazzled Londoners. There’s a bunch of different classes that aim to do anything from set positive intentions to help you reconnect with your inner animal! Re:Sound is a an immersive sound bath, perfect for those who find themselves distracted by the tick of the clock when they try to meditate. 

Victoria. From six credits, usually £22 a session.

8. Boom 45 at Boom Cycle

Sport and fitness Cycling Holborn

Boom was the first to open a boutique spinning studio in London. Still paving the way, it's become one of the capital’s most popular fitness communities (you’ll want to join its colourful-leggings gang too). Expect classes to involve a lot of switching between standing and sitting, endless arm presses and mid-session high fives. The brilliant Boom instructors like to keep you on your toes, literally – this is ‘partying on a bike’ at its best. You’ll be a boomer in no time.

Various locations. From five credits. Usually £18 a class.

9. Signature at Flykick

Things to do Classes and workshops Euston

Flykick is a slick boutique fitness studio in Euston with full-body workouts that incorporate high-intensity training, meditation and kickboxing. Punchbags line the walls of the studio and friendly teachers show you the correct techniques, so you can pummel and kick the bags safely for 20 minutes. The lights go down, the music is pumping, and you can let all your anger out before the meditative recovery session begins.

Fitzrovia. From nine credits. Usually £21 a class. 

10. Blokfit at Blok

Sport and fitness Gyms and fitness centres Shoreditch

Blok is one of the coolest gyms out there, with pared-back, urban-style spaces with linear strip lighting. The café does a good post-workout smoothie, plus wraps, snacks and salads, with on-trend ingredients – think turmeric, matcha and activated walnuts. When it comes to Blokfit, expect a fairly gruelling but satisfying workout through a series of circuits – we’ve not been so exhausted since we were forced to do the bleep test in year 8.

Clapton and Shoreditch. From five credits. Usually £15 a class in Clapton and £17 in Shoreditch.

11. Yoga 60 at Another Space

Sport and fitness Gyms and fitness centres Seven Dials

Swanky gym Another Space offers HIIT (a mix of boxing and floor work), cycle (spinning with a focus on core strength) and yoga (take your pick from hot or ‘ambient’). The gym is bright and light, and the changing rooms are packed with everything you could possibly need, from hair ties to wet bags. There’s also a small café serving healthy snacks and protein shakes in every hue. Dreamy.

Bank and Covent Garden. From eight credits. Usually £23 a class.
