[title maintitle=" London's 5 BEST fitness classes to get you in shape quick" subtitle=""] I've sweated my way round London's fitness scene to bring you my top 5 fitness classes to get you in shape quickly! Plus, they all have been rated on my fun and sweat factor scale. Enjoy! Love Vicky x   We all know that dieting two weeks before beach season won't cut it for results, so if like me you're getting started early - let's make it as fun and sweaty as possible!    [title maintitle="" subtitle="DW Fitness First - FGT BOOTCAMP"] [caption id="attachment_3090" align="alignnone" width="1500"] FGT Bootcamp - Photo credit: DW Fitness First[/caption] If you're in a rush for time but want to really feel that workout then this is the class for you. I did a morning 20 minutes FGT Bootcamp class at DW Fitness First London Cottons Club and left dripping with sweat! The class is split equally between 30 seconds of work and 30 seconds rest - and trust me, you'll want more rest! Within 20 minutes I'd battled with the battle ropes, swung and squatted with kettle bells and perfected my press ups. I love to feel worked hard during a workout and if you are the same then you need to give this one a try. With classes at many of the gym locations be sure to add this one to your morning routine - I'll see you there. Sweat factor: 5/5 Fun factor: 4/5 See the timetable for FGT here.

The classes typically last 45 minutes and are delivered as an intense HIIT style programme. There are different bases in which you, as group you take turns moving round. From burpees to kettle bells and battle ropes to...

Marylebone, 40-42 Chiltern Street What is it? Yeotown was originally a detox retreat set up in Dorset where people would go to switch off and cleanse. With yoga classes, meditation sessions and cookery classes Yeotown is the perfect retreat. After the success of the retreat they decided to open their first 'Yeo Town Kitchen' in Marylebone to bring the relaxing atmosphere to busy London life. Why we LOVE it? Because there is something for everyone! Yeo Town Kitchen boasts vegan, free-from, fish and poultry options all with a vast array of health benefits. There smoothie menu is hard to beat with near enough a whole page dedicated to different smoothie and juice blasts. Why is it different?
