Fancy training in your own private gym but your gaff isn’t quite MTV Cribs worthy? Look no further. Elysium have recently launched a collection of private micro gyms across London, promising to provide you with the best of both worlds; a quiet, professional space for fitness enthusiasts and PTs, along with all the benefits of a high end, state-of-the-art gym.  

What’s the deal?

Founded by London-based personal trainer Guido Basola, Elysium caters to PTs looking for a professional space to train clients as well as those looking for somewhere to do a solo or group workout with friends. Coming from a luxury fitness background, Guido has taken his previous experiences and created a dynamic space that hopes to change the way people view fitness and personal training.

What can I expect?

Elysium gyms are fitted with state-of-the-art exercise equipment. From a cardio perspective, guests can use the Concept2 Rower, SkiErg and BikeErg for lower-body conditioning and aerobic fitness.  For strengthening workouts, the Power Racks come with custom-built lever arms for chest, shoulder and deadlift support. The gyms are also equipped with dumbbells and kettlebells, as well as a Cable Crossover, for arm, chest and shoulder muscle workouts.

How does it work?

The micro gyms will be priced at £25 per hour and need to be pre-booked prior to arrival via the Elysium app. 

Where can I find one?

In addition to the brand new sites in Aldgate and Seven Dials, Elysium has plans to further expand to Clapham, Battersea, London Bridge.
