Borderline-hip Covent Garden spot
Possibly more gay than straight, this small but solid gym started in 1994 is full of friendly West End locals working out on the good selection of cardio and weight machines. One of ten outlets in the Soho Gyms chain taken over by PureGym in 2018. Closest tube stations: Tottenham Court Rd, Holborn and Covent Garden.

      Well equipped gym with a friendly, sociable crowd
      This is a friendly welcoming gym that attracts a membership of predominantly gay/bi men, including many "gAylisters" of the London scene. This makes for a more sociable environment than you'll find in most other gyms. The gym has a good sized free weights area with plenty of room to accommodate the busy post-work crowd. Kettlebells, TRX and VIPR equipment is also provided. Staff are visible, willing and engaged. The fit out is not the most high spec in London (compared to say GymBox or The Third Space) but the membership fees are very good value. My only complaint is that as the membership is primarily male the locker room can be a little too crowded and more lockers/changing space would be appreciated. Also note that there are other Soho Gyms around London and reciprocal club access is available.
