The Urban Tri is a hard-core (but fun) fitness event that takes place every first Sunday of the Month and is spread across three sites. If you like your exercise varied then this is the perfect workout for you.
The event begins with 45 minutes of Hot Yoga at Yotopia studios in Covent Garden, followed by a 3-mile run through the streets of London in which the running experts from Sweatshop will guide you to your final task: an 8 mile indoor cycling session at BOOM cycle in Holborn. Water, a yoga mat, towels, pace runners, cycling shoes (if you want to wear them) and showers with luxury toiletries are all provided in the £40 that you pay for the event.
Both Yotopia and BOOM cycle have a lot to offer on more everyday basis too. Yotopia runs a large selection of normal, warm and hot yoga classes in sessions catered around many levels of competence, from beginner to those who are highly experienced. BOOM cycle has two sites to choose from, a main one in Holborn and a smaller, basement-style venue in Shoreditch. The environment is fun, energetic and cool – the music is loud and the lights are turned low. BOOM cycle offer spinning classes from 07:30 in the morning until 19:15 at night and you can pick which lesson will best suit your music taste by listening to the instructors playlist before you visit.
