Learn a sexy skill

Pole dancing: Pole dancing exercise classes have taken the city by the storm. And with instructors with names like Jenyne Butterfly (US Pole Dance Federation Champion 2010) and Nico Modestine (Mr Pole Fitness UK 2012), what’s not to love? You can burn up to 400 calories an hour and it’s really good for your thighs, bum and tum. You’ll also be learning sexy moves like the “showpony” so if you want to improve your pins, posture (and paunch) roll on up. Warning: prepare for friction burns in delicate places. Ouch.

Details: has beginner, intermediate, and expert classes. Its biggest studio is in Old Street but it also holds workshops at 14 other venues across London. Classes cost £99 for a period of six weeks.

Try something different

Kangoo jumping: It might sound a little crazy but jumping up and down like a kangaroo supposedly burns twice as many calories as running. Wearing egg-shaped springy shoes known as ‘Kangoos’, you will bounce your way to spring-thin. The cardiovascular workout lasts for 45 minutes and is set to a mixture of Kylie Minogue, Timberlake and funky house. Let's face it people, have you ever seen a fat kangaroo?

Details: Gymbox has gyms all over central London. For access to classes you must become a member, which costs £58 per month.

Pull on the dance floor

Street dance: Bust a groove this January by joining a fitness dance class. Not only will you get fit, but you can show off your moves come the weekend club night. Gymbox offers Ragga Dancing with the tag, “burn dem calories”. Enough said. If you’re looking for something a bit more specialised on the moves front, you could check out the classes at Pineapple Studios. As well as street dance/hip hop, they’re also hot on tap, yoga and contemporary dance.

Details: Joining Gymbox for £58 a month allows you to take any of its classes. Pineapple Studios costs £2 for the day, or £4 for the evening, and you can take part in any of the classes. A month’s membership at Pineapple is £28.
