Ministry of Sound opens central London gym

Dance and house music brand Ministry of Sound has opened a gym - The Arches Ministry Does Fitness - in Elephant and Castle, London.

The training studio has a fully licensed bar, offering protein shakes, beers, wine and cocktails, and has the same sound system as the nightclub.

Personal trainer Harry Jameson has designed classes focused around seven purpose built training stations. Each station features equipment including treadmills, kettlebells, weights, a TRX, an XCUBE fitness frame, slam balls, battle ropes and benches.

Classes will consist of cardio on Monday, strength on Tuesday, endurance on Wednesday, core on Thursday, with Friday and Saturday offering an intense full body workout.

“We’re ripping up the rule book,” said Ministry Does Fitness general manager, Olivia Brafman. “Life is all about balance and not slaving away in the gym with only a carrot at the finish line. We want our customers to come to The Arches to sweat their arses off, have fun and celebrate a good work out at the bar where the party continues. It’s all about the experience, the social and leaving on a high.”

Classes start at £14 per session, with discounts available for group packages.
