BXR London is the latest state-of-the-art training facility to join the UK’s growing list of glossy boutique gyms and this one looks more like a designer bachelor pad than a sweat factory. The venue is spread across an expansive 1,115 square-metre space complete with 6 metre high ceilings, a juice bar, chic industrial finished amenities and more fitness equipment than you can poke a barbell at.
Bergman Interiors co-founder Marie Soliman, who oversaw the gym’s design along with Albin Berglund told Wallpaper that, “BXR is a real showcase in the boxing world. We are reflecting the history, the glamour and the craftsmanship of the sport.”
“We used a rich blend of backlit dark tinted mirror, bronze accents along with warm Cognac-coloured leather.”
The goal behind BXR is to create a boxing space which is both theatrical in paying homage to the sport whilst being unintimidating to those who have never set foot inside a boxing gym. Short of wanting to move in and live there after joining, members can utilise BXR’s in-house clinic, throw back some organic juice from Joe & The Juice’s custom menu or simply admire the raw concrete decor complete with murals.
Even the in-house sound system possesses enough power to rival those of an Ibiza night club.
