Blok | East

Clapton, Fitness, Rectory Road

An industrial style East London hangout with bare brick walls, vaulted concrete ceilings and cast iron pillars. Whether you’re looking for dynamic or restorative, power yoga or yoga for beginners, ashtanga or yin, there’s a yoga class to suit a range of abilities.

We’re a fan of Blok Flow, a musically led sequence that bridges the gap between hardcore fitness and traditional yoga – created by renowned yogi and dance choreographer Ida May.

Mix it up with strength and conditioning classes like Blok Fit, Functional Fitness, HIIT and Methodology X. There’s also primal movement classes incorporating crawls, hops, jumps, boxing classes, pilates and barre. If you fancy something more playful for the weekend, rave your way to fitness with the aptly named, Blok Party.

For post-workout grab & go refreshment, the in-house cafe offers a menu of sustainably sourced seasonal food to boost energy and fuel your workout. Peruse a selection of healthy, natural breakfast pots, protein pots and pre-prepared meals available to eat in or take away. The café also boasts the UK’s first bone broth bar in a gym.

If you’re planning on heading out afterwards, make use of the showers (there’s 4 in each changing room) plus hairdryers and pampering amenities! Towels are available to rent for £1.

We recommend a post-workout brunch at Palm Vaults (15 min walk / 8 min bus) – one of London’s most Instagrammable coffee haunts thanks to a menu of rainbow lattes and Wes Anderson style decor.
