Our Classes

Outdoor gym re-opens 29 March 2021

From Monday 29th March, outdoor gyms and leisure facilities can re-open! This means our fun and effective group fitness classes will resume in Strong + Bendy’s fitness garden. 

Our fitness garden is London’s most unique outdoor gym destination. Come and check out our willow tree, canopy shades, festival-style festoon lighting, cushioned outdoor flooring and incredible artwork by world-famous street artist Zabou, not to mention our incredible range of workouts by London’s most sought-after trainers!

Classes include TRX Suspension Training, Kettlebell Cardio, Shadow Boxing & HIIT, Battle Ropes, and ‘Body Blocks’ (a core conditioning and high intensity workout using a plyo box).  

All fitness levels and bodies welcome. 

Safe socially distanced workouts

All of our classes are safely socially distanced, with no shared equipment and all equipment cleaned between each use.

You can learn more about all of the ways we’re keeping our customers and team safe here.

If you have any questions about the right class for you, don’t hesitate to email rhian@strongandbendy.co.uk or DM us on Instagram.

Fitness classes + personal training

We strongly believe no one should feel intimidated when walking into a fitness studio or gym. We offer fun group workouts and personal training, led by friendly teachers, in a beautiful unique environment.

Most classes are challenging but all can be adapted to suit all fitness levels.

Indoor studio re-opens 17 May

According to the current government roadmap, our airy ground floor indoor studio will re-open from 17 May 2021. Indoor classes include High Intensity Pilates, Boxing, Yoga, Kettlebells, Dance Workshops, CheerFit, and more.

The most unique gym in East London

Once you’ve experienced a class at Strong + Bendy, you’ll never go back to exercising in a basement studio or gym.

Strong + Bendy is easily accessible from Victoria Park, Hackney, Clapton, Homerton, Chobham Manor, Stratford & Leyton. We’re a few minutes walk from Hackney Wick overground station, secure bike parking is available on site and on-street car parking is available at evenings and weekends.
