What Our Evaluator Had To Say

What To Expect From A GRNDHOUSE Session
GRNDHOUSE brings strength training into a fitness industry still heavily influenced by cardio. With each participant equipped with a Technogym bench and dumbbells, each GRNDHOUSE session is 50 minutes and is led by a motivating, energetic on-stage instructor, enabling them to get a good view of everyone’s form and whether they can go up a weight.
You have three class types to choose from - Strength, which focuses on medium to heavy lifting “with intention”; Sculpt, which uses a mix of bands and light to medium weights for a “deep burn” and Sweat, which is high-volume weightlifting that adds an aerobic element to the strength work.
The lighting effects, controlled by the coach to drop at the right time, as well as curated playlists, complete the experience.
The Reception Service
Our pre-visit call to the branch was handled well by a confident staff member. We felt fully prepared for our session as all our questions had been answered with ease.
On both arrival and departure in the branch, there were no staff immediately present at the front desk, but once they arrived they were friendly and welcoming.
The Class Experience
GRNDHOUSE received The Fit Guide 4-Star Class Experience Award, making it one of London’s stand-out offerings.
The class was overall a very professional and well delivered experience. Our coach had great energy and clearly put a lot into the workout. He paid particularly close attention to form and technique, both individually and to the group.
The coach's energy, the music and the lighting effects contributed to a fun and enjoyable experience.
The Equipment And Studio
The studio was very impressive, with a top quality soundsystem, high end equipment and lighting that wouldn't look out of place in a nightclub. The music and lighting was adjusted by the coach through the session depending on the mood of the class, which added to the experience considerably.
The Facilities And Public Areas
Workout and shower towels were provided free of charge. Lockers were provided with number locks. Free water refill stations were available.
The public areas were very impressive and left a strong impression. The sense of brand was clear throughout and it appeared as though no expense had been spared in creating a very premium and aesthetically pleasing space.
The stretching and Theragun area was an especially nice touch, as was the spacious waiting area. The smoothie bar and cafe, along with the nicely decorated hangout area complete with orange lit IG-photo room, rounded off a world class feel and facility.
Digital And Technology
The booking process was smooth and could be done via the website or the club’s branded app. The website was geared more towards the brand’s online workout offerings which meant we had to dig a little deeper to find information regarding the in-studio sessions.
Their online training platform is extremely impressive and comprehensive, and is presented as their primary offering.
