The New Gymbox
So I finally bit the bullet and signed up to Farringdon’s biggest and baddest gym – The All New Gymbox – all 42,000 square feet of it.
As a regular gym bunny and fitness fanatic I would say I am fairly confident and know my way around a gym – however stepping foot into Gymbox for the first time with the resident DJ spinning the latest house beats was actually quite daunting! The gym itself is huge – with a full-size running track, a fitness frame and water based rowing machines, it certainly offers the most up-to-date equipment but there was something about it that was really overwhelming and I can’t put my finger on it. My only saving grace was that everybody else was in the same boat – lots of blank faces and aimless wandering!
Having survived my first Bike N Beats class (and being directed to the studio by the boxing instructor!) I must say I am loving the GymBox vibe now I know my way around. The variety of classes are second to none(150 classes a week!) with my personal favourites being Gains, Bartendaz and Ripped & Stripped and if you can get over the first time fear of training in this performance based gym – I think you will enjoy it too!
