The Shopping Workout and EasyGym Review


How many times have you been out shopping and have had to head home from being weighed down with bags and too tired to carry on?

The brand new EasyGym, which has just opened on London’s Oxford Street, have specifically designed a workout to increase endurance in our favourite sport…shopping! The workout focuses on increasing strength and stamina in the legs and the arms, to allow you to pound the pavements and load up with bags in one of the world’s busiest shopping areas.

I got to try out the workout myself and was put through my paces by Olie, one of the Dream Idols. Olie expertly worked me through the routine that I can report instantly challenged my body and is a perfect workout for after-work gym-ing –short and sweet with great results.

However aside from designing a girl’s perfect workout, the gym itself at EasyGym is also impressive. Spanning a vast 26,000 square feet, it is equipped with the newest machines and equipment on the market.

There are many different stations and areas packed full of various weights, swissballs and throwbags to allow you to tighten, sculpt and flex your body by any means possible. Including a fully equipped studio for pay-as-you-go classes and a whole team of personal trainers. So lets just say being bored at the gym isn’t going to be a problem here!

Like its sister company, EasyJet, there are no frills here. No swimming pool, no steam room and only very basic changing rooms. However this enables the gym to offer another impressive factor; the price! At £19.99 a month and no pesky contract to tie you down, it works out at a bargain£4.99 a week. Providing busy Londoners a perfect solution to what can be an expensive fitness habit.  So not only will EasyGym be able to turn you into a superhero shopper, it will also give you a new body to fit into that outfit you bought with the money you saved on the membership!
