Bankside Health Club

We all know what gyms can be like. Steroid soaked pits of testosterone that make you wonder if any of the people within have ever considered living a life that doesn’t involve them pumping iron 24/7. If you’re a fitness freak then that sort of thing might appeal, but for ordinary people it’s all just a little bit worrying. There’s nothing more off-putting than seeing that the average inhabitant of your local gym is the lovechild of the world’s strongest man and the incredible hulk…

That’s where Bankside excels. It provides as good a gym service as you’re going to get in London, without the pressure. It might not quite meet the standards of the very top workout spots, but it’s more than enough for the vast majority of the city’s population.The facilities there are excellent, as are the exceptionally approachable staff. For anything other than expert level training, Bankside is simply brilliant.

This friendly gym is also ideally suited for female use, thanks to its unisex approach. There’s even an attached health centre and spa to relax those aching muscles in after a serious workout.
