Located in the heart of St. James SW1, Nordic Balance is an independently owned gym of the highest standard.
Set in the basement of the In and Out club, beneath beautiful vaulted ceilings, it's the most atmospheric gym we've come across. The fully equipped cardio and weights rooms, plus swimming pool and Fast Lane, squash court, Jacuzzi and sauna, offer all you need from a gym.
They offer Yoga, Pilates, Boxing and Blast Fitness (high intensity fitness sessions involving a combination of interval training, TABATA, total body workout) classes and they restrict them to 6 people so you get hands-on teaching and attention from the teachers. They even offer a free trial class.
Shankara (owner) never misses the Pilates session on Wednesdays and can attest to how knowledgeable the trainers are. (See their updated schedule here). The personal trainers are all very experienced, friendly, encouraging and professional.
Recognised by all health insurance companies, Nordic Balance’s Physiotherapists, Osteopaths and Chiropracters can play an integral part in the prevention and management of sports injuries. They aim to identify risk factors to prevent injuries, treat and fully rehabilitate you post-injury, and return you to your sport in the shortest possible time.
Their sports and massage therapist completes the perfect team. So whether you're looking to get fit, recover from injury, or learn how to exercise without a build up on strain on your body, Nordic Balance is the place to go!
Overall, Nordic Balance provides a fitness haven, and is as different from other big chain gyms as a specialist running shop is from a high street sports fashion outlet. We've fallen in love with Nordic Balance, and are thrilled to now be working with them on our new Running Workshops.
