GET YOUR SWEAT ON: KXU
We’re big fans of KXU at SLMan so we were excited to hear the Chelsea gym, known for its no-nonsense results-driven sessions, has added a series of new spinning classes to its timetable. U-Cycle is an indoor class that guarantees to get the heart rate soaring: held on Keiser bikes, which feel more like a road bike than your average spin bike, you’ll work your way through 24 levels of resistance, incorporating hills and sprints. For something different, book a U-Cycle MTV class where you can spin to music videos played on a cinema-sized screen.

TAKE THE FAMILY: Promise Me Memories Installation
Artist Yinka Ilori unveiled his immersive installation in Greenwich last weekend. Standout elements include a hopscotch area made from reclaimed car tyres and a crazy golf course suitable for the whole family. In the coming weeks, the installation will transform into a stage for ‘Summer Sessions’ with live jazz music and DJ sets, and screenings of Saturday night movies as well as sporting events like Wimbledon and the Olympics. Whatever your bag, the installation will be in situ until Sunday 19th September.
