Project Awesome

Project Awesome is an energetic collective that hosts two free weekly runs around Tower Bridge and Primrose Hill at 6.30am. However, these aren’t your ordinary jaunts around town. It’s safe to say you can expect the unexpected, with plenty of high fives and hugs to make the daybreak commitment worthwhile. For more info email danny@projectawesomelondon.com.

Morning Gloryville

This morning dance party is where health-conscious ravers go to cut shapes and get fit before heading to the office feeing like a boss. Running from 6.30am to 10.30am in west and east London, the popular event offers dance DJs, yoga sessions, massages and a smoothie bar. Just remember to bring the glitter and you should fit right in.

Swimming at London Fields Lido

Super-keen swimmers can knock out a few lengths here as early as 6.30am, but that’s not the only reason to make a splash in this hip lido. It’s the only 50m heated – yes, heated – outdoor pool in London, making it perfect for those chilly mornings before work.

Boxing at Blok Fit

Boxing at Blok Fit

Based in Clapton, Blok Fit isn’t just another trendy studio that looks great on the ’gram. This neighbourhood gym is all about strength and conditioning work, and at 6.30am you can do a boxing class in their dedicated studio. Or you can have a go at their signature interval training workout, which is not for the fainthearted. Either way, you’ll leave wide awake and ready for the day.

Spinning at 1Rebel

1Rebel has established itself as one sexy gym space, with party-style spin classes that are just as impressive. From Monday to Friday you can book a 45-minute session at 6am, where you can ride along to the freshest playlists from top DJs or, occasionally, live music. Although they’re on the pricier end of the scale at £20 a pop, the bragging rights you’ll earn from ticking off a workout at that time of the morning are priceless.
