London – A new fitness space by the Ministry of Sound combines elements of clubbing with a full-body training programme.
With a programme of classes that begins at 6:45am and ends at 8:00pm, and a drinks menu that features alcoholic cocktails alongside protein shakes, juices and coffee, Ministry Does Fitness aims to bring together the best of clubbing and exercise. The space uses the same state-of-the-art sound system as the Ministry of Sound, and playlists are tailored to fit the rhythm and feel of each class.
The bespoke fitness studio’s six-day schedule of classes is designed by personal trainer Harry Jameson, who together with his team of fitness experts guides visitors through a variety of cardiovascular exercises and interval training.
According to Ministry of Sound, the studio, which bans selfie-taking and has ‘straight-talking staff’ and no set dress code, is a response to the proliferation of ‘pretentious gym culture’.
