We love the studios operated by Hot Bikram London because of their close attention to detail in design. The Balham studio can get a little crowded, so you may want to arrive a few minutes early to avoid the rush.
This full-service health club is located adjacent to the St. Martins Lane hotel. We primarily recommend it for hotel guests who receive complimentary admission.
This Bikram studio is full of spirit and creativity and you'll sense it the moment you walk through the front door. The lobby has a large abstract mural and a big comfy couch and benches with fluffy pillows for relaxing before class.
Located across the street from the recommended Rosewood hotel, this small club is a convenient workout alternative for guests and any others in the Holborn area.
If you find yourself on the outskirts of the city proper, rest assured that you can still maintain your yoga practice. The studio in Chiswick is one of the cleanest we've seen, and the practice room boasts great natural views.
Wow! This community center impressed us. Not only does it supply the latest and greatest in strength and cardio equipment (Technogym brand) in huge numbers (50+ each of cardio and strength), it also houses one of the best lap pools in metro London.

New York has Central Park, Chicago has the Lakefront and London runners have Hyde Park. Acquired by Henry VIII in 1536, Hyde provides 630 acres of greenspace and miles of horse, jogging, walking and skating paths.
This petite-sized health club is a good deal and convenient for guests of the connected Clifton Ford hotel (free admission). Others, however, must pay a 15BP sweat tariff, which is hard to justify.
Explore London and get a workout in! We know that you can always climb aboard one of those double-decker red buses or sign up for a more leisurely walking tour, but we think newbies to the city will enjoy a more athletic-minded approach!
While Hyde Park is larger and convenient to more hotels, those staying near this park should seriously consider a jog here. Some zig-zagging is required to accrue the maximum distance on the outermost paths, but one loop around the perimeter path will net almost 2.7 miles (~4K).
This impressive club reflects its upscale Mayfair surroundings and affluent clientele. Any hotel guest in the Mayfair area can work out here for 35BP/day (185BP/week).

There are plenty of options to continue your yoga practice while in London, and this is one of them. Operated by Bikram Yoga London, the "west" studio offers up the steamy yoga we've come to know and love with a dash of British humor and flair.
Wow. While this 50-meter, outdoor, heated, 8-lane lap-pool may be a bit out of the way, we think our fishy friends should make the trip. The Lido is about 3 miles north of our recommended Mid-City hotels. There is also a cafe here along with a large sundeck.
This club is not only unique in name (37 degrees Celsius is a human's core body temperature). Inside, athletic-minded travelers will find a novel workout space with an industrial, warehouse-like vibe, high ceilings, dark grey/black walls and hardwood floors.

Before you get too excited about this fantastic health club, keep in mind that the only way to get inside is to arrive with an existing member (cost 20BPs). No other guests are allowed and we have been unable to uncover a hotel relationship that would provide guests with access.
We are fans of the studios operated by Hot Bikram London because of their close attention to detail in design. The Fulham studio boasts a strategically designed lobby that not only has aesthetic appeal but also functions to diffuse traffic during peak hours.
Unlike a few of its sister clubs which restrict admission to only those guests arriving with a member, this impressive health club has partnered with certain hotels for discounted admission passes.
