If you’re anything like us, relationships with gyms are fleeting: once the thrill of flirtation wears off, dates become less frequent, finally petering off for good. We’ll wager that if you’re lucky enough to secure a membership at The Lanesborough’s brand new Club and Spa, though, you might make more of an effort to keep the flame alight. Dubbed a lifestyle club for the modern Londoner, it incorporates a hydrotherapy pool and state-of-the-art fitness studio, manned by the renowned Bodyism team and offering personal training sessions and a range of small fitness classes (think yoga, reformer Pilates, Bodyism boxing and HIIT TRX). Each new member is put through their paces with a full MOT: the Body Oracle assesses health, daily routine and nutrition, as well as health and fitness goals, to provide a personal wellness prescription for body and mind. There’s even a restaurant on site for post session refuels, offering a clean and lean menu devised by Michelin-starred chefs Éric Fréchon and Florian Favario, in collaboration with Bodyism’s James Duigan. And because membership is being capped at just 450 people, you can be assured that the club will remain exclusive. Show us where to sign.
