Still buzzing from the Games? Whether your fitness frenzy is still going strong or you’ve just sunk back into the sofa cushions, try to keep up the momentum with all the exercise activities London has to offer. As the city steadily closes its doors to watchful eyes across the world, Boris Johnson enforces his ‘Go London’ campaign aimed at maintaining the legacy of the games and encouraging a fitter generation. Here are a few ideas of fun activities to get your blood pumping:

Park run: Need the motivations of others? Get involved with this free, weekly 5km run at locations around the city. Don’t fancy life in the fast-lane? Start off with light walking or jogging.

Brunch on the run: Alternatively, join Saturday runners and social brunch group for a well deserved treat at the Whole Food Market on High Street Kensington after the lengthy run.

Breeze Network: Fancy being the next Victoria Pendleton? Breeze Network is a volunteer led national network of bike rides by women for women.

London Friday Night Skate & Sunday Stroll

London Friday Night Skate & Sunday Stroll: A Friday evening activity that doesn’t involve the pub. Skate 10-15 miles around the city accompanied by a sound system, or join the more chilled skate on a Sunday afternoon.

Bikram Yoga

Yoga: Turn up the heat with a Bikram Yoga class in temperatures of 100°F or some aerial yoga for high flying fun.


Freerunning: Unleash your inner monkey and build up strength, balance and awareness whilst overcoming various obstacles. Book online at urbanfreeflow.com.

Also, don’t forget your Boris Bike.
