We remember when the Central studio opened in 2013 with Barry himself (yes the man does actually exist). A former addict who partied hard in the 80’s turned fitness junkie who has amassed an army of bootcampers with 25 studios globally – 20 in the US, 2 in London and 3 in Norway with one more in the pipeline (our Nordic cousins really dig him over there!)
Whether you want to focus on Arms & Abs, Butt & Legs, Chest, Back & Abs, Core & Abs or the Full Body there’s a 60-minute class for you. Prepare to work harder than ever and be rewarded with a rush of endorphins that will carry you through the week. But be warned… it’s highly addictive.
Shower off with Malin & Goetz amenities and swing by the on-site Fuel Bar for a ‘grab and go’ protein shake, or for a hearty breakfast head to The Refinery – just a 10 minute walk away. They do a great weekend brunch with Eggs Benedict/Royale/Florentine and Avocado on sourdough (enjoy two hours of free flowing Bellinis & Bloody Mary’s for £15 extra between 11am – 5pm every Saturday, but remember hydrate!)
You’re also within 15 minutes of 1920’s art-deco inspired drinking den, The Lucky Pig with a delectable menu of ‘giggle water’ served in old-fashioned glass wear – not that you’ll need perking up after Barry’s.
