Are Gyms in London Expensive?

London is home to some of the best gyms and fitness facilities out there. Our Hussle network contains a wealth of the capital’s brightest and best, have a look and see for yourself!

But are they expensive..?

A Relative Term

There is often an elephant in the room when the topic turns to prices. That goes for everything from London gyms to days at the Zoo to a family meal.

‘Expensive’ is a relative term, it means different things to different people.

You as an individual might instantly feel that something is expensive. Answering the question more generally is a little more complex though. 

The reason why is simple; we all earn different amounts. We all have different lifestyles and priorities and we are from different parts of the country.

The North/South Divide

Is London more expensive than other parts of the UK?

Usually it is. An average standard of living in London costs as much as 58% more in comparison to the rest of Britain. For someone from the North, spending time in London can induce eye-watering reactions to prices. This is sometimes the case for gyms as much as anything else.

Any online search for ‘cheap gyms near me’ in Central London will throw up an array of amazing venues.

 – But is there a ‘cheap’ way to enjoy everything they have to offer?
