Here are three of our top tried and tested tips for kickstarting your metabolism and giving your body and mind a much needed spring clean.


We promise you they do work, if you do them regularly and don’t cheat (much). We were sceptical at first, but once we put ourselves through the test, the results were quite noticeable. For a full day by day review of our juice cleanse experience, click here, but in short, we highly recommend starting with a 3-day cleanse and then following up with 1 day cleanses every 6-8 weeks. You will feel lighter, less lethargic, your skin will get a healthy fresh glow, and you will enjoy better sleep with your body now rid of various harmful toxins. Our friends at Plenish have juice packages to suit anyone from cleansing novices, to metabolic gurus and you can get a special discount if you enter code USPAAH at checkout.

AM Power Yoga is just a 4 minute walk from Old Street station, and they host over a 170 classes a month, ranging from calming Yin Yoga to fast paced Rocket Yoga which will leave you dripping in sweat.

Looking for your next book to read? Look no further than this thought provoking collection of wise teachings, that sheds light on the secrets of longevity of the people in Okinawa, Japan. A place with more centennials than anywhere else in the world. With everyday lives going at ever increasing speeds, we get so bogged down in our routines that we forget to stop and think about what actually makes us get out of bed in the morning. This book will help you answer that question for yourself, and help you re-discover your priorities. It definitely helped us switch off for a while, and give our hard-wired minds a much needed spring clean. Want a second a opinion? Read this fun review by The Telegraph, or buy the book online here.

Happy New Year everyone – if you’re reading this, it’s time to put down the Ferrero Rocher. You’re not the first, and you certainly won’t be the last person avoiding hitting the dreaded treadmill. So, we decided to do a little research that may just entice you to get back in to the swing of things. Here at USPAAH, we’re ready to start 2018 a little differently to last… Keep reading for best alternative fitness classes in London!

Aerial Hoop with Flying Fantastic

Flying Fantastic

When we first saw Aerial, we imagined a Disney princess themed class and what a class that could have been… Reality check: The aerial hoop is a circular steel apparatus rigged from the ceiling, designed to enable you to perform dynamic tricks, swings, spins and more. Great for building strength, and increasing flexibility (thank us later;)), this full body workout will strengthen your core muscles and upper body strength like no other classes out there. We dare you to try it.

House of Voga

House of Voga

Described as “The haute couture of fitness”, and we couldn’t agree more. House of Voga is the brainchild of set designer Juliet Murrell, who qualified as a yoga instructor to restore her energy levels after a bout of bad health. Merging Yoga and the revolutionary Voguing dance style, Voga is the one for you if you enjoy yoga but want a cardio workout too. Did someone say Paris Is Burning? Fitness has never felt so fabulous!

Float Fit


As you’ve probably heard, HIIT classes and workouts can be the most beneficial as not only are they quick but they work wonders for the waistline. FloatFit classes take the concept of HIIT and add all the fun and slippery stuff to the mix – (we’re talking water boards and a pool guys!). There are over 1,500 FloatFit instructors worldwide, and plenty of places to try out classes in London. Go for HIIT for a full body workout, or Float Fit Yoga if you’re wanting a more chilled entrance to exercise this January.

Okay so this one… you’re going to FEEL it. If you want to feel the burn then go for this class and break your barriers, we did… we almost cried BUT the accomplishment we felt afterwards was through the roof! Prepare for 45 minutes of mental and physical intensity, with back to back sets of weighted squats, lunges and more, alongside running sessions on the latest Woodway 4Front treadmills. Prepare to push your body to limits you didn’t know existed, and then treat yourself to their Roots & Bulbs’ cold-pressed juice bar.
