Classes at the studios are free for members, with detailed timetables and booking requests available online. As a part of Wellbeing week, the gym is also offering a few workshops this upcoming week: The Benefits of Exercise on Wellbeing and Studies (October 22), The Benefits of Pilates (October 23), Mindfulness Morning (October 24), and Nutrition. All sessions are free to attend and can be found on the KCL website.
From classes to bike sessions, the Strand gym hopes to offer something for every fitness level and every student – all in an area central to King’s student life. Yet despite the new gym’s convenient location, the King’s Sport team is determined to increase gym accessibility to all King’s students, regardless of where they live and study. Andy Allford, Head of Sport, Health and Wellbeing at King’s, says he hopes to see gyms on all of the King’s campuses.
Until then, King’s students near and far can travel to the Strand gym for all of their exercise needs: Monday-Friday from 7:00-22:00 and weekends from 10:00-18:00.
