    Soho gym on Macklin street is easily the best around Soho / central. Have been a member of fitness first, virgin active and have trained at gym box and third space. I always end up coming back to soho. Best equips, best maintained, cleanest and the friendliest staff and members. Speak to the Manager called Eduardo say you got recommended by Alistair and he will no doubt give u a free pass to try before u commit.

    Soho Athletic on Macklin Street, Covent Garden,
    is the only one I knew firsthand -- lived above it --
    but that was years ago. I agree with everything
    Alistair cited. Also, if your shopping for a personal
    trainer, ask for Dan ("bloke with the pythons and
    gorgeous Brazilian wife"). Uber gay gym, though.
    Uber.

    Hey thanks guys, this is really good and a consensus of opinion already!

    This will sound so shallow, but do they have a sauna or steam room? I like to go and stretch in the heat after a workout?

    There are a few Fitness First gyms in central London. I think they have enough equipment and machines for a good workout. Plus it tends to be full of muscle guys which can be inspirational and more...

    I have just joined a Fitness First and they are very helpful. I also had a free day pass so I got to trial it first.
