This Month’s Health & Fitness List
Part of Eight Club – one of the capital’s newest members’ clubs – Eight Core offers state-of-the-art classes and top-of-the-range personal training in luxe surroundings. Membership gives you access to a 6,000 sq ft gym space, unlimited classes – from boxing to Hatha yoga – and a consultation with a PT to create a bespoke fitness schedule and nutrition plan, the latter being accessible via a members-only app. Dr Kal Parmar, a leading sports and exercise medicine physician, is also on hand to iron out aches and pains. If you’re not looking to commit to a long-term membership, monthly access is available.
Following a successful US launch, Levels Health will be arriving imminently in the UK. A new breed of health tracker, it offers real-time metabolic insights from a continuous glucose monitor and fitness, sleep and lifestyle data, providing feedback on how your choices impact your blood sugar levels. With continuous glucose monitoring, you can remove the guesswork and immediately know which foods negatively impact your blood sugar – in the long -term, this can help with sustained energy and reduce your risk of chronic health issues. Over time, the app makes actionable recommendations on how you can improve and optimise your health.
Club Health is the name to know if you’re recovering from an injury, dealing with body imbalances or looking to build more strength. No two experiences at Club Health – London’s first high-end rehab and performance clinic – are the same. Your journey starts with a consultation, with treatment options including everything from physio and rehab training to medical massage and clinical Pilates. Rest assured you’re in good hands – the clinic is headed up by Luis Ribeiro, a former professional footballer and football physio who now specialises in body mechanics, posture and movement.
My Sunday Ski
Whether you’re a keen skier or prefer to take in the mountain views from the warmth of your chalet, My Sunday Ski’s collection has you covered. The ski suits – lined with plush fleece for extra warmth – are the perfect all-in-one solution, while jacket and trouser separates allow for endless combinations. You’ll also find cosy merino base layers for chillier days while cashmere and wool romper suits will keep you snuggly for après- ski sessions by the fire.
Using two forms of hyaluronic acid, bio-fermented extracts, minerals and actives, REOME’s Active Recovery Broth has been two years in the making, and is designed to fortify the skin barrier, improve skin health and restore radiance. The brainchild of beauty director turned acupuncturist Joanna Ellner, REOME’s formulas aim to undo the impact of long-term stress and restore balance in your skin. You can find it at Space NK or try it as part of Joanna’s Signature Facial at 180 Health Club, a holistic treatment that brings together acupuncture, gua sha, facial massage and heat therapy to release tension and promote better qi and blood flow.
The Other House
Designed to help you rewire your mind and reconnect with your body, The Other House’s half-day retreats could be just what the doctor ordered. Ideal for those looking to unwind without having to leave London, book in for a multi-sensory day that includes restorative yoga, Ayurvedic workshops, massage, a tea ceremony and a guided sound meditation. The Other House is one of the capital’s best-kept wellness secrets – tucked away in South Kensington, it offers a curated menu of spiritual, alternative and holistic therapies. The retreats will be taking place on select weekends throughout the spring.
Looking for a new way to work out? Dutch fitness experience Sanctum could be just what you’re looking for. After making its debut at the Alma Festival in Ibiza last year, Sanctum has been hosting classes in Amsterdam and will be launching imminently in the UK. Fans of Taryn Toomey’s cult The Class will love Sanctum, a high- intensity workout that brings together traditional movements – think burpees and mountain climbers – with primal movement and mindfulness. A unique form of movement, the 50-minute classes are designed to reduce stress and anxiety and help you reconnect with your body.
If you’re into acupuncture, you may well have heard of Sarah Bradden. Her signature treatment combines face and body acupuncture with acupressure massage and LED light therapy to recalibrate the nervous system, boost immunity and give skin a renewed glow. For something different, you can now book in for an ear seeding session with Sarah. The speedy, 20-minute sessions combine acupressure with the application of ear seeding crystals to help restore calm, energise, heal, balance and aid recovery. We’re booking the Energiser treatment to support immunity and increase mental clarity and alertness.
