Time Out says

On a mission to spread ‘light and happiness across the city’, FirstLight has its work cut out in London this autumn. But they’re giving it a damn good try. Each class follows the journey of the sun – from morning, noon to sunset. A virtual simulation is displayed on a 30ft mirror at the front of the studio, which tracks the sun as it crosses locations from Dubai to Rio (or, in our case, New York). It’s fun and gives the class a nice structure, but I doubt it really did much to enhance my ‘focus and wellbeing’. It was a bit distracting and left me thinking it was probably better to just go for a run in the actual great outdoors.

Much more convincing was the workout itself: slick bikes, polished routines and a seriously bouncy instructor. Not the most challenging of spins, but a definite sweat-inducer. FirstLight is a good place for beginners looking to test their legs. And, with luxury changing rooms kitted-out with all the right smellies and products, it’s a nice place to refresh post-workout – morning, noon or night.
