Gym on Fleek: Virgin Active Classic

When choosing a gym, it’s important to stop and actually consider what you want from a gym. If you’re looking for a budget option there are gyms out there that will offer you a minimal experience for a minimal cost. If you want to be pumping iron in a hardcore, old-school type gym. However if you’re looking for the all-out Roll Like Boss type experience, nothing in the world beats Virgin Active ‘Classic’ .

Not to be confused with standard Virgin Active gyms, the ‘Classic’ clubs are Virgin Active’s premium gyms. They are kitted-out to a whole different level and are essentially the ‘Champion’s League’ equivalent of gyms. 

The Classic clubs, are extremely impressive, they offer a completely different experience to your average fitness club or LA Fitness gym. You workout using the latest state-of-the-art equipment, and freshen up in a luxurious changing environment, you’ll leave the gym feeling relaxed and recharged, which is more than can be said for some of the budget chains.

The weights areas are spacious and has a great selection of high-end free weights and machines. Several bench press stations and smith machines mean that you’re rarely waiting for important equipment, even on Mondays when it’s "chest day" for what seems like every guy in the city. For those looking to add variety to their workouts, there’s a large selection of kettlebells and a designated area for TRX suspension workouts.

The cardio area is vast and boasts a large number of state-of-the-art treadmills, cross trainers, bikes and rowing machines. Even during peak times, there is always equipment available. For those interested in a premium indoor cycling experience, they also have a training suite of eight ‘Wattbikes’ set up. The Wattbikes are synced up to a large monitor allowing you to race against others and monitor your performance in real time, ideal for cyclists or triathletes wanting to train at the optimal level. It’s these kind of first-rate features that set Virgin Classic gyms apart from their regular gyms.

Possibly the best feature of 200 Aldersgate club is the magnificent pool, spa and sauna area. Featuring a 20 meter hydrotherapy pool, large spa, sauna and steam room, this is the place to relax after a tough workout. Features like the old school ‘Cold Bucket’ shower, the ice fountain, and the two ‘Experience’ showers which have settings such as tropical rain, thunder rain and cold mist, really make this a unique experience. If you're not in the mood to relax, grab a SWIMTAG from reception and you can track your swim stroke and technique in the pool, evaluating your own performance and competing against others.  

The changing rooms at 200 Aldersgate are another differentiating factor. They are modern, spacious and luxurious and wouldn’t feel out of place in a 5 star hotel. Molten Brown toiletries are provided and white fluffy towels are complimentary. Then even have GHD hair straighteners – in the men’s changing room! You’ll walk out of the gym feeling on top of the world.

All the Virgin Active Classic gyms offer a diverse selection of free classes such as body combat, body attack, pilates and spinning. However, unlike your average gym, the 200 Aldersgate spin room features Myride technology - a gigantic screen on the front wall projecting the world's best rides during the class. 

Lastly, there is a plush cafĂ© and relaxation area with comfortable sofas and chairs, meeting rooms and iMacs. With free wifi, phone chargers, newspapers and complementary Costa coffee, you can really make yourself at home here.

This gym is the complete package and the guys at Virgin Active have really raised the bar.
Tom Ford Turned His Apple Watch into a Pocket Watch

Tom Ford, the fashion genius and ageless wonder, has reportedly turned his Apple Watch into a pocket watch. Depending on one's perspective, this innovation is either totally awesome or a great way to make a $350 tamagotchi. No word on what this does for the health tracking benefits, but we're guessing it doesn't measure Tom's heart rate all that accurately. And, cool or not, we must ask: If you have to keep your Apple Watch in your pocket, why not just simplify your life and use your phone? You know, the one that's already in your pocket to begin with.  

Is this a new trend in the making or nah?
