WORK WITH THE BEST
Excellent gym with attentive instructors. Very clean and inviting.
Awesome concept! Like having your own physio every day. Functional training made fun. I would highly recommend that you give it a go.
This is a very special place. What they are teaching is what I wish I had learned long ago - the fundamentals of movement. They are granular in their approach and forensic in their attention to detail. And it works. I'm only in my first week and so my impressions are still new - but they're formed enough to know that I made the right choice. Instructors really know their stuff. Class sizes are small. The attention paid to you is enough to make sure you can't get away with poor form. It's really challenging - and really gentle at the same time. Can't recommend it enough.
You have to try a workout at this place to understand why so many people have come in with a 5 star rating. While I don't mind going to the gym to lift weights every now and then, I don't find it particularly enjoyable. Lift, on the other hand teaches you to develop control and move your body - which is not only a great workout but it makes you feel good about yourself. I've taken 3 trial sessions so far with Kat, Jax and Mayoor and they have all been delightful! I recommend this place without hesitation.
Recently started PT with Angus, 5 sessions in, I already feel more aware of my body and improvements are easily noticeable. Highly recommended.
Angus has been offering one to one coaching for me for some months now . His expertise and skill has really helped my mobility and strength .
The best in London. As a professional this is the place to practice. Beautiful space, wonderful community, great vybe. Perfect to train / shoot quality videos. AND the coaches are amongst the most dedicated and knowledgeable out there. Top spot only getting better and better.
I came to Lift just wanting to learn to handstand, but have continued to train here because I have gained more than I ever imagined! Training with Angus for the last few months has exceeded my expectations. He has given me the best support and personal attention to any needs, injuries, and weaknesses while helping me reach my goals. Combined with a Rebalance session with Shannon, I now feel stronger, more coordinated, more aligned, and better than ever before - I feel like my body has been put back together in the correct order and is beginning to move properly for the first time in my life. These benefits have majorly translated into my training outside of Lift, helping me to see improvements in any other physical activity I do. I am also so thankful to have found them now and for the knowledge I have gained, as I know these skills will help me prevent any injuries later on and benefit me for life! The beautiful space and positive vibe of the studio/all the teachers is refreshing and so welcoming! Finding Lift and training with Angus has been a life-changer. I couldn’t recommend them enough!!
If you are looking for a challenge, Lift: The Movement is the place to go. The knowledge, the passion, the motivation and the energy are incredible. Friendly teams and very helpful. Angus has created a perfect place to support you to achieve your goals. Thank you again for all your help.
