They call it Yard Work… because it’s definitely hard work.
With 4 studios across London, these guys take strength, conditioning and boxing seriously. They have a strong team of athletes as trainers, leaving you gasping for air after every workout.
Their studio in Victoria is infamous for its Yard Work class – a combination of modified strongman and cardio training. No Yard Work class is ever the same. You’ll find yourself doing farmers carries in teams in one, a chipper workout on the assault bike in another, but one thing’s for sure – you’ll always have a killer class. While the gym and facilities are slick, Yard Work is done in the car park. It’s proper gritty.
Equally, their boxing skills and conditioning classes are made for beginners and the most experienced. Not to be missed.
Their studio in Vauxhall is smaller and doesn’t host boxing classes, but they have a panoramic patio where their cardio machines are. Just so you can take in the view before you pass out on the ski erg.
