First and foremost, there aren’t many better ways to get the heart pumping than with a run on the Thames Path. The stretch along London Bridge is one of the best, providing a tapestry of sites and sounds. In the distance between Tower Bridge and Tate Modern, a nimble footed jogger can see HMS Belfast, Butler’s Wharf, the Golden Hinde, the Globe Theatre and the Millennium Bridge.

While a jog can bring a sense of calm at the end of a hectic day, some prefer to exercise with the support of a class. Crossfit Central London, just south of Southwark St, delivers the intensive group workouts favoured by a fiercely loyal, and constantly increasing following.

For yoga enthusiasts, sweat it out at Hot Bikram Yoga on Magdalen Street. Potters Fields park is great for quick circuits outdoors.

If this all sounds a tad exotic, don’t panic! London Bridge is still home to a variety of well-known gyms that cater to all fitness levels.

“We have been really fortunate to work with the team at Potters Fields to host our annual 5k and 10k ‘Run the River’ fundraising run, which is sponsored by our long term partner Citi Bank.”
