The Xmas countdown has officially started (cheers). This month has already been jam packed with Xmas parties and get-togethers; involving a lot of food and even more alcohol! But before allowing all my hard work over the year to go to pot, working out has never been more of a main priority. If you’re looking for a workout this Xmas look no further than BESTCycle®.
There’s one thing attending a launch of a new class and there’s another trying it out as a regular paying punter. Taking away the excitement & sparkles from the launch which was back in Sept, I went to test if this gym is what it claims to be, a few month on.
BEST’SBootcamp, located between Embankment and Charing Cross station, started earlier this year with their signature Bootcamp, a no-messing circuit class. Yana has done this workout a few times and speaks highly of this new gym (follow this link to read Yana’s experience). I was excited to hear of their new class BESTCycle® and even more thrilled for SeekNPlay to be invited to the launch.
The cycle room feels dark and intimate with 20 bikes facing the full length mirrors that run across the wall. The lights and sound system are insane, perfect for transporting you away from the outside world and to getting you into the zone.
The class was led by Abi, who also took the class for the launch. Once again she gave it her all and refused to let anyone fall behind. Consistently leading the class whilst working herself just as hard. The sweaty 45 minutes went so quickly even though there were moments when I thoughtthat my legs were going to give up. Your legs aren’t the only ones to be worked, you pick up a few weights at the beginning of the class which come out mid way through to start an arm workout. Killer.
The class was concluded with being given a wonderful lavender scented frozen flannel for an instant cool. This was very much needed to calm my tomato face.
Bests has got to be the friendliest boutique gym by far. You receive warm greetings from the staff who are willing to help you with checking in and showing you where everything is. They have achieved exactly what they aim to be -‘friendliest community in the capital’(a quote from their website). Which is probably the reason why clients keep returning.
I can confirm that this class is still awesome and worth the money AND to make it even better for Xmas, Best are running all their classes at £12! Thank you BESTmas!
Thank you for reading.
