Outdoor Swimming Pools In London

If you want to stay fit and shed some extra weight this month but you aren’t a fan of the frost, there are plenty of ways to get exercise without having to brave the cold winter winds. London is full of luxury indoor complexes and public pools where you can put on your swimsuit and swim your way to a healthy New Year body.

Hit the gym


If you want to improve your strength and get into shape in a lively environment, the gym is always a good option. Being surrounded by other driven exercisers will help keep you motivated and having trained gym staff on hand will make sure you have the help you need when trying to use machinery or weights. The gym may not be for everyone but if you struggle to stay motivated when you’re running or exercising by yourself, it is the perfect place to stay focused and get down to business. If you are travelling on business, a gym session after a day of meetings is a great way to unwind.



The yoga trend has swept the country over recent years and now London is home to a huge range of luxury studios that offer resolution seekers a chance to start the New Year off on the right foot. The exercises involved with this ancient practice have been proven to reduce stress, increase flexibility and improve the health of those taking part.
