At Strong + Bendy we believe no one should feel intimidated when walking into a fitness space. Everyone is welcome, regardless of fitness level.
We are London’s most unique fitness destination, the only studio in the UK that offers both indoor and outdoor workouts. Check out our beautiful outdoor studio here.
We are part of a movement that’s reclaiming exercise from the toxic wellness industry. Strong + Bendy is an inclusive studio that rejects the ‘norms’ of traditional gyms; we don’t believe anyone should be pressured to transform their body.
You will never hear us talk about weight-loss, fasting, calorie restriction, or ‘clean’ eating. We do not believe that diet and exercise need to be so intrinsically linked. The latest fad diet has no place here.
We try as much as we can to positively impact our local community, offering free classes, inclusive classes for adults with learning needs, free memberships, NHS discounts and more. You can read more about our community impact here.
Our instructors have taken the Fitness Professionals Against Weight Stigma (FPAWS) course.
Often fitness professionals suggest weight is controllable and if you fail in doing so, you just didn’t try hard enough. This is scientifically inaccurate (or bullshit to put ir more bluntly 😂). We will never assume weight loss as a goal for a customer.
Owners, Twin sisters, Mouse + Rhi have a long list of their own sporting achievements, including ultra-marathons, endurance swims, Ironmans and even a world record! However they’ve created a welcoming environment that’s open to all. The Strong + Bendy team can help you reach a fitness goal, or simply help you enjoy exercising.
