Urban Kings – Luxury Mixed Martial Arts Gym

This June sees the launch of London’s ultimate luxury space dedicated to mixed martial arts, conditioning and fitness (see the diary). Aimed at members who want uncompromising athleticism but don’t want to compromise on their surroundings, Urban Kings hosts state-of-the-art equipment, as well as beautiful changing areas and relaxation facilities.

Take advantage of the fantastic level of training available to master your art, improve your fitness or gain an edge for competition combat.

A full-size (19’) boxing ring features in the main work-out area, as well as 12 punch bags hanging at varying levels from the ceiling, a cage wall and two large dojo areas.

Members are encouraged to fine-tune their physique with challenging equipment including:

  • Kettlebells
  • Monkey Bars
  • Ropes
  • Cable Machines
  • Olympic Lifting Area
  • Sandbags
  • Tyres

As well as the specialised training sessions, classes are offered in Abs, Body Conditioning and a Ladies Work-Fit Class.

A tailored audio system means members can listen to the latest tracks while they exercise and a full size projector fills one of the walls, screening fights, films and music videos.

And after their work-out, guests can head to the Sauna and let the heat relax their muscles for the perfect post-exercise reward. Separate male and female saunas are accessed from the exclusive changing areas. Both men’s and women’s are more luxury than locker room with soft towels, monsoon showers and spa products.

Finally, head upstairs to the ground floor Juice Bar and revitalise your system with a menu of juices designed to rehydrate, nourish and restore. From vitamin and mineral boosts, to protein rich smoothies, our team will recommend the perfect post work-out replenishment.

Urban Kings & Mortons

So yesterday afternoon I got an email from Tolula Adeyemi via Mason Smillie inviting me to the launch of new gym Urban Kings. I only had one meeting during the day at Westfield to discuss what Freak Deluxe can do with them, that finished at 6pm, so I left from there and headed to Urban Kings in Kings Cross calling Charlotte (@stylecartel) on the way to see if she could attend also.

Tolula DJ’d she played a great set and really kept the crowd going, bit of Jay Z, bit of B.I.G., bit of Britney! She had everything covered. When Charlotte arrived we went downstairs where there was a boxing match going on in the ring, two champion beat boxers going at it full pelt!

In the Blue Corner…

In the Red Corner…

The gym is really nice! AND it has a unisex bathroom and showers!!! Back upstairs I met Jade Jagger, I gave her my card (you can just see it behind her bag) and mentioned doing something with the mag. It’s a definite possibility so stay tuned for that one! Just look how amazing her jewellery is!

A DJ from Jade’s company Jezebel relieved Tolula of her duties and went on to please the masses. Back downstairs we met David Hayes, he is something kinda special in the flesh! I managed to catch this one after the prof photog had finished, he doesn’t smile for pics.

Tolula was working that Stolen Girlfriends Club dress!

Time to leave, Mason convinces Tolula and myself to make an appearance at new club Morton’s

We decided we’d go in for 10 minutes, ended up being 50! Oops, apologies to the car that was waiting outside for us.

It’s nice in the club, exposed brick with ‘gun lamps’ and clear light bulbs hanging down by the walls. The DJ booth was all lit up with lil pretty lights, he was killing it with the tunes which is why we stayed so long!

On leaving Morton’s we met Tolula’s friend Melrose, who was also on ANTM 7. Don’t believe the hype people, she’s actually really nice.

Until next time…x
