We understand that private personal training can be expensive, and fitness classes in other gyms can feel over populated. This is the reason why we choose to create Small Group Training at Outrivals where we allow only a maximum of 8 people in each of our 60 weekly classes, so everyone who trains with us isn’t just a number. We get to know you by your name and work with you on your technique and form to ensure you are doing all exercises correctly in case of any previous or current injuries. All this whilst training within a friendly community environment! Our team of fitness professionals have different qualifications ranging from Weight lifting, Strength and Conditioning and Boxing but before instructing any Outrivals classes, they go through an intensive 4 week Outrivals training course understanding the Outrivals ethos and culture.


Ultimately, small classes allow our trainers to build a rapport and work closely with you from the very start. Our trainers get to know your individual goals, as well as your strengths and injuries, even in these small group training sessions, because we believe in building and maintaining relationships with our members. Each class at Outrivals has a maximum capacity of 10 people to ensure that our trainers can pay attention to each individual person while still maintaining the hyped atmosphere and excitement that comes from working out in a small group. Classes are also designed to ensure your form and technique are the main focus.


Our periodised programming is created by our team of fitness professionals and set a month in advance with two different levels, so whether you are new to the gym or an experience gym goer, you can still reap the benefits of our classes. Our months are broken down into 4 weeks, with each week focusing on a different phase of training. Below you can see a snapshot of each week, with their varying tempos and weights.

Phu Outrivals member testimonial

My favourite gym in London.  The classes are amazing & fun. They have a personal touch compared to others as they keep number of attendees small. Trainers are at the top of their profession, and it is not about gimmicky stuff but actual progression. Everyone at outrivals supports each other (free classes, volunteering projects, youth mentoring). I can’t wait for the opening of the new studios!



Outrivals is our go-to circuit and strength training classes in London! We’ve been members for two years now and love the friendly instructors who are so genuine and encouraging! The small group size means they can pay closer attention to your form and get to know you on a more personal level. We love the community feel!

After one year and a half, I still love the vibe and the energy of the challenging classes. Results definitely come after few weeks/months!
They always try to bring something new in (eg. recently they added the yoga classes) and you will have a small group of people you will see on a regular basis, will help you build a sense of community, that goes beyond building strength and muscles.
They try to make the effort to remember people names & the volunteering session they arrange for the kids at Shoreditch Park proves Outrivals is not just a gym! 🙂


Love love love this place! They are so friendly! I’ve been to a few studios in London and I’m a member of another Gym (have been for 8 years) but not once have I been greeted by name. Within two weeks of starting here, even the ladies on reception welcomed me by name! This, while a small thing, makes you feel valued as a client.
