Please note:

Please note the unusual Opening Hours at this site.
The City of London Academy Gym is a great choice to help you to get fit and gives regular gym users and customers the chance to use the facilities setup for the school, one the school day is out. This means opening hours run from 4 hours each evening on Monday through to Friday and 10am to 4pm on weekends, providing a convenient evening and weekend workout schedule.

The gym facilities are of great quality and well maintained ensuring they’re suitable for experienced exercise fans as well as newcomers. The range of machinery is extensive with a large and spacious gym area split into dedicated sections. One half of the room is set out with resistance machines whilst the other is home to a good range of cardiovascular machines including modern treadmills and cross trainers. The gym also has a great range of free weights including kettlebells and dumbbells of different weights.

In addition to the main gym, The City of London Academy also has an indoor hall for sports and a studio and there is a sports field and basketball court outside of the centre, both of which require pre-booking to use.

The City of London Academy Gym has received some great reviews from its current and previous customers who highlight the impressive range of equipment it offers considering its size and the fact that the staff are always friendly and only too happy to help.

Shhh, don't tell too many people about this gym because they might cotton on to the fact that it's great value for money and you've got unfettered access to the equipment.

This gym is a little hidden gem! A great place to work out with everything you need for a good quick power workout after work or on a Saturday morning.

Great gym for the price. Staff are friendly and happy to help but don't bother you if you just want to get on with your workout. Every now and then I have to wait to get on the treadmill, and weekend opening hours are quite short - but can't complain for the price!

It's a great gym for anyone wanting to workout at a low cost and with few distractions. However, it hasn't got the greatest range of equipment for serious trainers.

Shhhh. Keep this gym a secret coz it's cheap, accessible and very user-friendly. But remember it's our secret, ok.

It's a small community gym, not a large one. If it's busy you might have to wait for equipment, but it's friendly and cheap :)
