Gymbox opens at Farringdon


he vibe is definitely young, clubby and bold. We tried out two new classes: Circus Circuits - 45 minutes of exercises like pull ups and balances on the trapeze (don't worry, it's not high) and silk as well as conventional floor moves. It is brilliant for strengthening the upper body and abs and uses muscles differently to normal floor workouts. Rave: 45 mins of non-stop dancing on Reebox mini trampolines with normal lights out, laser lights on and glow sticks. It's colourful, fun and an excellent cardio workout.


Three SL Mercedes


Gymbox accommodates a lot of kit into the new basement space next to Farringdon Station. Boxing features on the class list with full contact sessions for guys and girls. New classes come regularly to keep things fresh and a live DJ's in- house every night. There are party events too through the year and downloadable


music to buy. The whole fitness experience here feels more hardcore - a sort of life-style cocktail of clubbing, fitness, youth, music, meeting people. www.gymbox.com


Classic Car Club – A


“classic, modern, quirky automobiles to suit your needs, whims, fancies…”


t the Classic Car club you can drive a choice of cars without buying, storing, fixing, insuring and worrying about your own vehicle. There’s an eclectic group of new friends at a program of membership events such as regular drinks, meals and drives or VIP visits to places like Brands Hatch. 10,000sq ft of space hosts 60 cars - favourites include a curvaceous silver 1963 Jaguar E-type 3.8 litre series, 1975 Aston Martin V8 Vantage, 1959 Jaguar XK150, 1971 Lotus Elan, 1977 Porsche 911 3.0 Carrera, 1965 Mercedes 230SL Pagoda. A new family-sized Mercedes E320 CDi offers roomy comfort & modern functionality. And if you prefer motorbikes you'll find a 2009 Triumph Bonneville T100, 2008 Triumph Bonneville ‘Black’ and more.


Nigel Case, professional photographer and Classic Car Club owner, opened the club with two friends – a barrister and a property developer - in 1995. They had been collecting and sharing their cars and in order to continue their collections decided to make it into a business.


The Classic Car Club has around 180 members, including Barbican residents and its Shoreditch/City location sees members (ladies and gents) coming from creative and business backgrounds. The cars are divided into categories, each of which holds a points value. Mileage is unlimited, you can travel across Europe if you choose. The joining fee is £500 then you select one of three tiers of membership: £1,555 gives you around ten days of driving; £2,265 gives about 20 days and £4,250 gives about 40 days. Nigel and his colleagues can arrange corporate events - sample drives for your colleagues and/or clients in a selection of cars, with a bar at their premises and dinner in the exclusive Eight Club just near by. Or you can book one of the driving experiences. Night drives are London-based, starting at 7pm ending at 1.30am; while the day drives (9am to 4pm with a pub lunch) take place in the country.


For transatlantic travelers, your membership for the London club allows you to use the franchised New York Classic Car Club too.
