BLOK | Hackney, London

A perfect combination of fitness and design. Aesthetically pleasing studio and physically demanding classes. One of Wallpaper’s best gyms in the world.

I did Boxing with Kenny – an accustomed fighter himself, he led a cardio intensive class with a touch of technique in the bright, fully equipped studio 1. It was a combination of bag and floor drills, light sparring and agility drills to fire up your inner Rocky.

I also had a peek at the other rooms before taking a nice shower with their Bamford toiletries – they looked like something out of a design catalogue.

If I didn’t live so far out I would be a regular here. I hope they have plans to open a second studio closer to central some time soon…
