So, you’ve bought the gym membership, the results should come in time, right? Not always. Most of the time gyms are so daunting you end up wandering around looking at the scary contraptions and deciding on attempting some crunches in the corner, which you realise you could have done at home anyway. For the best results and a kickstart on your fitness goals, getting a personal trainer the first step to the new you. No longer exclusive to the rich and famous, personal trainers are for everyone who’s trying to shape up. We’ve narrowed down a list of our favourite personal trainers in South London, so you can choose one that is local and appeals to you.
There is no better way to soak up the atmosphere and culture of a city than listening to some exciting live music in good company. But live music isn’t limited to enthusiastic tourists. It is always fun to listen to some new local talent and relax in a spot serving great food and drink. Which is why we’ve compiled this list of our favourite local live music venues in South London.
Us Brits love a Sunday Roast and have finessed the art of the home cooked roast dinner over the years. But sometimes you don’t want to fire up the oven for hours and slave away in the kitchen. Autumn Sundays in London are always special, so why not get out of the house, wander round the park to work up an appetite and then indulge in one the best Sunday lunches on offer South of the river? Fortunately, we’ve done the hard work for you and rounded up the crème de la crème of roast dinners.
The summer is over and you’re feeling a little resigned to indoor life, where after binge-watching that new show, you feel a little useless. Now there is no shame in that because we’ve all been there, but we are here to inject some enthusiasm into your evenings and weekends. There’s loads going on in South London that will help you learn some new skills and try some new things. This is a list of activities where you’ll probably say ‘I’ve always wanted to try that’ and some where you might say ‘I never thought of doing that’. We imagine you’ve given up on your well-intentioned New Year’s resolutions, to which we say: why not make an end of year resolution? That way when Christmas comes around you can feel accomplished and perhaps have a new skill to show off to family and friends. Expect something to suit all South Londoners, including the artsy, sporty and adventurous!
Hands up who is needing coffee to get through this week after the bank holiday? Us too. Coffee has its humble roots as a popular drink in 15th Century Yemen, originally used for staying awake for religious rituals. Well, flashforward to the 21st Century and coffee has fast become the best friend of the perpetually tired and occasionally hungover. Coffee has not just become a popular drink, it has taken on a life of its own, with coffee chains relentlessly lining every high street to give people their caffeine fixes. But here at the South London Club, we think it’s the hidden gems on the high street that provide the best roast, rather than Starbucks or Costa. Thus our guide to getting coffee at the best independents was born. We’ve got you covered for every sort of day. Those days when you’re dashing along the London streets, takeaway coffee cup in hand, the days when you’re tapping away on your laptop in the window of an indie coffee shop, sipping on a latte and even the days you’re downing espressos at a rate to rival teenagers in Ibiza. So without further ado, it’s time to find your new favourite cup of coffee in South London. Expect latte art photos that will make your mouth water.
