Telling a Good Gym from a Bad One

It may seem like an easy thing to find a fitness gym in London but once you start checking them out, things look very different! Many of the big gym chains in London but also pretty much anywhere else in the UK have sacrificed quality and service just to be able to offer the cheapest prices. As a result, it can be really difficult to find a good gym.

Let me give you an example. Some years back, when you signed up for a gym, it was pretty much normal that you got a free drink with every visit. You could spend some good time in the studio because they had TVs there where you could watch movies or your favourite shows. Most of the gyms I’ve been to back then also included free access to their swimming pool and other nifty amenities. In other words, even if you may have paid a little more as compared to day, you always knew that you got your money’s worth!

Today, it’s all about ridiculously low prices but at the cost of the lowest possible standard of equipment and poor customer service, this is at least how it looks to me. If you look around today, there’s only a few exceptions of good gyms left, and most of the time we have to search long to find them.

I always say that you should take your time when you want to sign up for a gym. Always check them out in person first or at least inform yourself about what they offer on their websites. An example for a good gym that I like very much here in the area is the guys at London Fields Fitness which I can highly recommend to you. What I like about them is their knowledgeable staff and their friendly trainers along with their very good selection of various fitness classes. You can check them out at

The Singing Waiters London

The “Brit Tones” is the new, spectacular vocal group by London’s famous The Singing Waiters. If you happen to take a cruise ship holiday any time soon, chances are you can see and experience the Brit Tones live and in action!

Yet, The Singing Waiters London’s repertoire includes more than great musical entertainment on various British cruise ships. The groups’ trademark specialities are surprise music performances for all types of events including weddings along with flash mobs.

What makes The Singing Waiters London so different from other surprise entertainers is their first-class musical education background. All their members come from the best British music and dance schools. So even if you have a classy corporate party planned where you want only the best of the best Great Britain has to offer in terms of musical entertainment, The Singing Waiters are your top choice.

New Braking Technology for London Tube Creates Electricity

London’s Transport for London is testing a new system that can collect energy from trains braking. According to a spokesman of TfL, the new system should be able the power a large underground station two days a week.

How does this new regenerative braking technology work?

The new braking system converts kinetic energy into electricity. TfL set up a “inverter” near Cloudesely Road from where they send the created electricity to another station.

Up to 1 MWh off electric power can be collected per day,  according to TfL. In savings that means that London’s Tube will be able to cut up to 5% of its energy bill.

However, the system has another beneficial effect. The new brakes will be reducing the amount of heat that is normally generated by the trains braking. This means that it will require less energy to operate the Tube’s cooling system. It may even have a positive effect in the summertime, making commuting in London more tolerable on hot days!
