Exercise Mind & Body in July

With temperatures set to soar to ‘dangerously high’ temperatures, we’re sure heading to the gym is the last thing on your mind… until you remember the air-conditioning.

If you need to take a break from moody, basement clubs devoid of sunlight, get outside for HIIT on a rooftop, a sweat festival with lululemon or join a running crew for a tour to celebrate London’s long-term thirst for gin…
