London life is like no other! The restaurants, bars, sense of community and even the latest property developments to arise in London are impossible to compete with. Many of the new and upcoming London developments offer residents various leisure facilities to use in their free time, which is just one of the many benefits of living in the new luxury developments!
If you’re a regular gym-goer or simply into the occasional fitness class, rest assured, London developments are home to many luxury gyms which are free to use for residents.
Royal Wharf (The Clubhouse)
Royal Wharf residents have free access to The Clubhouse, which not only offers a 25-metre swimming pool, sauna, steam room and jacuzzi, but also a state of the art gym.
Located just above the pool, you’ll find a warm-up area to get you prepped for your workout, and a full cardio state-of-the-art fitness suite, complete with bikes, treadmills, and rowing machines, as well as filtered water on tap to keep you hydrated. There is also a full range of weight machines, free weights, boxing equipment and a TRX station, to provide the perfect mix of fitness for all levels.
If you’d prefer a fitness class with a personal trainer, you might be interested to know that the club hosts regular fitness classes which can be booked on their online portal. Their fitness classes cater to residents of all abilities, meaning that you have the option to attend a soothing yoga session or an intense bootcamp or HIIT session.
With the typical busy London lifestyle, you might often miss your favourite session, although you do have the option to partake in a virtual class. Another way the Clubhouse suits all residents is by keeping their classes running 7 days a week, all throughout the morning, day and night, which take place in the fitness studios, swimming pool or even outside.
Embassy Gardens is well known for having London’s Most Exclusive Pool, which shouldn’t take any shine away from their resident gym! Every member of Embassy Gardens is a member of the Eg.le Club, meaning that residents can enjoy private first-class amenities.
In the ultramodern Embassy Gardens gym, you can make use of the weights, yoga classes and Pilates sessions. If this doesn’t sound like your thing, then you may be interested to hear that you can relax in the sauna or steam rooms, to let off some steam after a busy working day. The Belmont Gym even offers a bespoke fitness plan to get your blood pumping
Embassy Gardens Club Membership allows you to relax in the sauna or steam rooms to take the stress out of your busy working day, or opt for a session at their gym to make use of weights, yoga classes and Pilates sessions.
Of course, all residents can work out with a swim in the rooftop pool, with the option of heading downstairs to the Belmont Pool for a more quiet swim instead.
In the heart of E14, Wardian is a development with a difference. A point of relaxation and tranquillity in the middle of Canary Wharf, Wardian offers every resident a personally-designed, flora-filled balcony, a rarity in the area and indeed London. It’s the perfect location for enjoying the buzz of the city, but offers the mind calming benefits of horticulture.
This focus on all things nature extends to the incredible facilities offered here. Residents of Wardian automatically become part of The Wardian Club, giving them exclusive access to the pool, gym, sauna, sky lounge and cinema.
The Wardian Club includes an open-air pool surrounded by over 100 different types of plants, a sauna and steam room, a magnificent state-of-the-art gym, classes and yoga studio. Want to relax after working up such a sweat? Book out the private cinema for you and your friends, or have a sumptuous dinner at the roof garden Sky Lounge where you can spend an evening watching the sun go down amongst a backdrop of foliage.
