Gyms are finally open but if you’re itching to get back to your favourite boutique fitness class then you’ll sadly have to wait a little longer! As it stands, group classes indoors are still forbidden under current guidelines but many of our favourite fitness hotspots in London have made several changes to their operations to offer outdoor alternatives to their most-loved classes, virtual group classes and one-to-ones. Here’s the lowdown on how to get your boutique fitness fix asap.

We’re super excited to announce that H&H fave, Soulcycle has launched SoulCycle Outside, taking place at Selfridges London. The bikes are set up in Edwards Mews, tucked round the back on Selfridges and the timetable is already choc-a-bloc! Definitely book in advance if you want to secure a spot on a bike!

Guests can complete their workouts at their own pace in-studio and the CC team will be writing up new workouts each day to push you to your limits. A trainer will also be in each location to assist with questions and keep you motivated throughout. 

Barry’s are back with their open gym concept where guests can book 75-minute slots to complete a Barry’s class using a pre-recorded audio workout.
