Best for... doing laps

When a gym has a pool, costs skyrocket.

As most of us don’t use the swimming facilities much, it’s hardly worth paying a premium for the privilege.

Your money’s better spent dropping in on your local leisure centre or lido and paying per splash.

Aquaterra has a handful of venues throughout Islington and a dip in their sizable pools is exceedingly reasonable.

For a list of pools closer to you (including price per session), it’s worth checking out swimmersguide.com.

Price: £4.50 per swim.

Where: MacDonald Road, N19 5DD; 
Caledonian Road, N1 0NH; 
Highbury Crescent, N5 1RR; 
28 Carleton Road, N7 0EQ.

Best for... a bit of fresh air

Some of the best gyms in London are free. The catch?

They’re outdoors. In the summer, the breeze is an added perk. Not so much during these cold winter months.

Still, push yourself hard enough, and your body heat should counter the winter chill sufficiently.

The largest outdoor gym in England resides in Peckham Rye, though parks throughout the city boast a range of equipment, from stationary bikes to shoulder presses. 

Price: free

Where: Various locations.
