Pilates is a gentle, non-aerobic exercise method, which lengthens and strengthens muscles, and improves posture and muscle tone without stressing the joints or the heart. Physiotherapists, Osteopaths, Chiropractors and Doctors now recommend Pilates as one of the safest forms of exercise available. It aims to improve the quality of movement and function by building on body awareness, strength, flexibility, coordination and endurance.
We have an experienced and dedicated team of instructors, who are available for one-to-one sessions in both equipment and mat based pilates, and Gyrotonics.
The Third Space Pilates is a haven of calm within the bustle of Soho. We have our own fully equipped Pilates and Gyrotonics studio and service, where our experienced instructors can create a program specifically designed to you.
The Third Space Pilates is open to everyone and is accessed via The Third Space Medicine with discounted sessions available for members of The Third Space.

Dance like workout evolved from yoga and tai chi that fluidly moves the entire body through spiralling, circular, undulating and spherical movements stimulating the core, the spine and the joints at the same time which helps increase muscular and joint flexibility while at the same time stimulating and energizing the body.. The breathing patterns performed with every movement help detoxify and oxygenate the body. The lengthening movements also awaken and strengthen your nervous system, open up energy pathways and stimulate the internal organs. Gyrokinesis strengthens the core, tones and elongates the body and improves flexibility, coordination, balance and range of motion. No previous experience is necessary.
Every member of The Third Space is entitled to a 30 minute complimentary One to One session in both Equipment Based Pilates and Gyrotonic.

Personal Training is all about taking you from where you are, to where you want to be. The Third Space has a large fitness team with some of the best and most experienced Personal Trainers in London. All have ‘been around the block’ (in the fitness sense!), and have different areas of expertise – whether your goal is fat loss, muscle gain, postural improvement, nutritional advice, training for a sport or event - we have a trainer who can help.
Our PTIs are regularly sent on workshops, seminars, and conventions to further their training, to ensure they are using the latest techniques and ideas to bring about real results, in a safe and effective way.
Hypoxic (Altitude) Chamber
Our famous hypoxic (altitude training) chamber is for those really wanting to take their training and results to the next level. The oxygen content within the chamber is reduced to approximately 15% (compared to 21% at sea level), which is equivalent to 2,500m (8,500 feet). Our chamber contains treadmills, bikes, a x-trainer, and a rower – meaning there is no limit to the type of altitude training you can do. It is the next best thing to living on the mountain!
For a healthy mix of strength, endurance, agility (and for some people, fear!) our three storey climbing wall is what you’re looking for. The 75sq metre white knuckle wall is designed for both novice and intermediate climbers, with two self belays for the times you are climbing alone, and several top rope and lead climbs. The wall includes an overhang, an abseil ledge, and many routes of varying difficulties which are changed regularly.
Climbing by nature is extremely physically demanding – there’s no escaping gravity! Climbing demands a level of strength, muscular endurance, flexibility, and skill, therefore by integrating regular climbing into your workout schedule, you can expect fast improvement in all these areas. As your own body weight is the resistance, you can also expect a healthy increase in your strength-to-weight ratio, making climbing an excellent (and fun!) cross-training addition to any fitness plan.
Our climbing instructors are all high level and experienced climbers, who can advise on taking your climbing skills to the great outdoor.

Our yoga classes all run on the central theme that a state of harmony exists when the requirements of the body, mind, and spirit are met. We have a large timetable of yoga, held in both the studio and the dojo. Our classes promote a state of relaxation and therefore aim to allay anxiety and remove stress. The more active yoga classes bring physical benefits such as improved posture, flexibility, range of motion and co-ordination.
Qi Gong is an ancient Chinese movement and mediation technique designed to enhance health and longevity. By focusing on the three aspects of human life (the body, the mind, and the spirit), this practice rejuvenates the body at the cellular level, clears the mind of the unnecessary rubble and lifts the spirit to its full potential. Based on the principles of Yin and Yang, Qi Gong promotes well-being, energises the body and focuses the mind. It is a brilliant introduction for both meditation and martial arts.

Our GP can assess you, or our musculoskeletal team can diagnose and treat an injury and provide a rehabilitation package in conjunction with the fitness team, even if you are not a member of The Third Space. Acupuncture can help with various injuries, and massage may be beneficial in addition to other therapies.

Our hypoxic chamber enables a member to protect an injury by exercising at a reduced intensity, yet still gain a high level of fitness conditioning. In addition, our arm rotor on the cardio floor is specifically for those with leg injuries, to ensure some aerobic fitness work can still take place.
The Fitness team can work with the wide range of practitioners from The Third Space Medicine to develop a specific exercise program with either a rehab focus (to improve an injury), or a prehab focus (to stop the injury from happening).

The competition sized boxing ring is the place to really let off some steam. Situated on our extensive free weights floor, you can’t help but be motivated to train hard when in the ring - whether taking part in a class, a one-on-one sparring or pads session, or training alone on the bags.
Martial Arts Dojo
We also have a padded Martial Arts dojo, with toughened glass overlooking the indoor pool. These facilities, along with the expertise of our instructors ensure we have all your fighting and self defence needs covered.
Boxing for fitness has entered the mainstream, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy! Anything burning this many calories and changing body shape this dramatically is bound to be tough, but the increase in aerobic and anaerobic fitness, strength, and coordination makes it worth it.
Our highly experienced boxing coaches can show you the ropes, whether in a class or a one-on-one session.
We have a full program of martial arts instruction within the dojo, boxing ring and main studio, including MMA, Ju Jitsu, Kick boxing, and Wing Chun. All these disciplines are taught by experts in their fields, so whether you’re a beginner or advanced, looking for classes or one-to-one sessions, our team can help you.
If you are really serious, possibly even wanting to try a white collar fight, then The Third Space Boxing Squad is for you.
