While it’s class-only sister branch, KXU, has garnered column inches, this is the original and it’s a ridiculously luxurious health club that continues to be one of the best and most exclusive places to workout in London. Taking a one-to-one, three-pronged approach to wellbeing (fitness, wellness and nutrition), it’s of little surprise that some of London’s most discerning choose to get their health fix at KX (pronounced “kicks”). Just the gym alone – all 8,500sq feet of it – and its dazzling array of expert-led classes would have been enough to win us over. Throw in the exquisite and unbelievably comprehensive spa (with everything from the latest cosmetic procedures through to neuromuscular treatments) and on-site restaurant with food to rival London’s best eateries, and you’re left feeling that there’s little need to go anywhere else.
This is the Rolls Royce of health clubs – from the saline flotation tanks, fabulous and fast nail lounge and post-workout shakes, everything here carefully caters to all aspects of a member’s health. Our favourite touch? Their laundry service, which means you can kiss goodbye to lugging a gym bag around and instead leave your sweaty workout gear in your locker for it to be cleaned in time for your next visit.
