That’s right fitness and exercise classes have arrived at PT Workspace! And we could not be more excited to present a whole host of fun-filled sweat sessions to get your heart pumping, body moving and calories burning.
Did you know that Islington is the most densely populated borough in London? Well, you do now. This also means that you have the opportunity to explore some of the most popular health and fitness classes that London has to offer, right on your doorstep. Fitness classes are booming and have taken off over the last 10 years with franchises and small group training studios popping up all across London to get in on the action. But with so much choice how do you begin to select a fitness class in Islington which is right for you? What should you be looking for? How much does it cost on average? All very valid questions which we are happy to help you answer.
Fitness classes that work around you
First off, fitness classes most importantly need to be able to fit in and around your lifestyle, can you spare an hour? If not you may want to look into classes that are 45minutes maximum, you can still get a great workout, burn lots of calories and leave feeling like you’ve conquered the day. Often these will be high intensity making sure you are getting your heart rate up and often incorporating resistance training and elements of cardio. Great for strength and weight loss.
Self Defence & Martial Arts Classes in Islington
If you can spare an hour, you might want to hone in on specific skills such as learning to box or martial arts. Self-defence is a great tool to have and often a great workout too, incorporating speed and power to help aid agility. As with all great sports, you need patients, and progress will come, which is great for building confidence inside and out.
Unconventional Fitness Classes
Not all classes need to be high intensity to challenge you, joining a callisthenics class will challenge your body in ways you never knew it could. Very much based on being in touch with your body, bodyweight resistance and movement. If you are looking for something unconventional then callisthenics is definitely it.
Of course, other options include yoga, dance and pilates which is low impact and great for mobility, mental health and a variation of ages.
The most important aspect of any fitness class is that it is supportive, progressive and gives you the opportunity to meet new and local people in your area. If mixed classes are not your bag then female-only classes may be a good option to explore.
Average Price of Fitness Classes
On average fitness classes in Islington cost anything from around £15 – £25 per class, often you will save money on memberships if this is something which is offered. If you are not too sure about a class or haven’t quite made up your mind, see if a free drop-in is something that is offered so you can get a good idea of how a session feels before you commit to it.

PT Workspace Football Club…
There is nothing quite like getting together with an awesome group of individuals and blowing off some steam on the football pitch. Whatever week you’ve had up until this point, is left at the side of the pitch before the whistle goes and the excitement begins. Specially with the World Cup now in motion, it could not be a more inspiring time to get outside in the late evening sun and break a sweat.
We recently created PT Workspace FC to carry forward a sense of community which we are trying to build here at the PT Workspace personal training studio. Whether you are a personal trainer, client working with one of the talented trainers at PT Workspace, or a neighbour of the studio, then we invite you to join our football team and enjoy having a kick around on a Wednesday evening with us. Each week we have a match against other local businesses in the area, so it’s a great way to meet new people too! Whilst there is an element of competitiveness, the aim of the game is to have fun more than anything else.
