Looking for the best luxury gyms in London? You’ve come to the right place. We have been at the forefront of London’s health and wellness scene since 2014 and know all the best fitness studios. From post-workout juice bars to laundry service, we understand the little extras and exclusivity that turn a great health club into a luxury experience worth investing in. From climbing walls to boxing or yoga, the equipment and range of classes is second to none but these exclusive spots are far more than just a place to do exercise.
Want a gruelling workout and facilities that rival a 5-star hotel? Consider Third Space. With 6 locations across London, this luxury health club is committed to providing innovative equipment and classes, with sumptuous surrounds. An impressive free weights section is probably a given. As is a range of dynamic and inspiring studio classes but a hypoxic chamber which lets you train in deoxygenated air to mimic the fitness benefits of working out at altitude? Now that is next level. Not to mention the quartz lamps, which help you escape the London smog by destroying 99.9 per cent of biological contaminants in the air.
It’s not just fitness either. Canary Wharf and Marylebone branches of Third Space offer a complete haven of health and wellness with their spa. Complete with full range of massage therapies, beauty treatments and sports rehabilitation, this indulgent space is so much more than a gym.
Easily one of the best luxury gyms in London. KX gym is not only luxurious but exclusive. The KX20 programme claims to apply the most effective forms of exercise & nutrition to promote fat loss and create lean tissue, in the shortest time frame possible – safely and effectively, of course.
Unless you have been very successful in business or as some members are rumoured to be – born into royalty – you’ve probably never heard of KX. Situated in Chelsea, this is the health club that caters for those who want the full spectrum of luxurious self-care; from strength and conditioning with a dedicated personal trainer, to topping up dermal fillers in the downstairs spa or dining under the instruction of your nutritionist and executive head chef – KX appears more private members club than high tech gym.
Lanserhof at The Arts Club
A collaboration between Austrian medi-spa Lanserhof and private members’ venue The Arts Club, Lanserhof at The Arts Club is being touted as the world’s first medical gym, combining high-tech equipment with state-of-the-art training to offer an unparalleled experience for members. The chic gym features technology that remembers everything about your workout – from the height of your seat to the weights you lift.
Alongside the plethora of medical and fitness facilities, members can enjoy all the luxury perks you’d expect from a health club of this calibre. The all-white, curved changing rooms are immaculate and kitted out with LANS Derma in-house products, while beauty treatments on offer use only the best German skincare brands, such as Royal Fern and Augustinus Bader. After your workout, you can drop your sportswear off at a laundry service, who deliver it back to you fresh and ready for your next visit – albeit for an extra £1,000 a year.
Launched in February 2020, FitSpace is a vibrant wellness concept from Callum Jackson, a former professional cricketer.

The state-of-the-art luxury studio’s bespoke programmes offer a comprehensive training, nutrition and recovery approach custom-tailored to individual’s goals, experience and lifestyle.
