Educogym is hell-bent on transforming trainees into lean mean machines in no time. In their eyes, duration is not the key; intensity is. Short, sharp and efficient workouts are what you can expect here - so you better be ready to give it your all. The gym fundamentally focuses on intense weight resistance training, which will leave you with noticeable results in no more than a 15 minute workout apparently - right. Book a consultation and find out where the heck you've been going wrong all this time.

Vauxwall Climbing Centre
Set under the arches of Vauxhall train station is this climbing centre named Vauxwall. Yes, very clever indeed. It's a pretty hi-tech addition to bouldering's growing empire in London, run by some very friendly faces. Located in three of the arches, this is a bouldering-only place suitable for all levels of clamberers and open pretty late too. Those in the know will want to know they've got a 35 degree symmetrical training board, competition wall, traverse wall, circuit board, permaset routes and a campus board. (You know what all those are right? Yeah same.) Get yourself signed up for an induction session, chalk up your sweaty fingers and climb away.
