The City of London Academy gym is a unique site in this area as it uses the school's gym facilities once all the pupils have left for the day. It is open for 4 hours each weekday evening and from 10am to 2pm at the weekends.
The range of machinery on offer is excellent. One side of the room has a suite of resistance machines suitable for all, the other side hosts a selection of CV stations, great for warming up or training inside while the weather is bad. The far end of the gym has a selection of free weights, kettle-bells, medicine balls and dumbbells. Within the site you will also have the use of the indoor hall and studio where a number of classes are held throughout the week, although these are very much in demand so pre-booking is essential. Outside you will find a large sports field and basketball courts, again pre-booking is essential if you wish to use these.
Accessing this site is easy; it falls outside of the Congestion Zone and has free parking in the local streets. The gym entrance is located on Lynton Road to the west of St James's Road, next to the playing fields.
