London's first pt studio

London's first PT Studio, in the heart of Clerkenwell.

Do you want to travel to a new location and spend time hiking? Maybe you’ve been invited to a special wedding and want to fit into that favourite dress in the back of your closet while feeling confident. Or perhaps you want to just enjoy playing your favourite sport again, without having annoying back pain hindering you. I’m Wayne Finn, and I am the owner of Drakes Gym, London’s First PT Studio. A place where we can help with the above.

I opened Drakes Gym in 2005 with one aim. No matter your goal; Drakes Gym would be a place to go for a bespoke plan that suits your needs, body and fitness level.

Drakes Gym is a friendly and independent gym, widely considered London's first PT Studio. It offers a unique program called Drakes Method. It includes personal training sessions, private Reformer Pilates and nutritional advice to help you reach your goals fast.

As someone who is in their fifties, I understand that fitness is a lot more than just shedding a few pounds. It’s about improving mobility so you can still travel to your favourite locations. It’s about working on your posture, so you don’t end up slouched over your office desk. And it’s about slowing down the ageing process so you can spend more time with your family. This is why we personalise our training sessions. Because you having different objectives in mind when you walk through the doors at Drakes Gym.

Everyone is welcome at Drakes gym, no matter your age. One trait our clients share, however, is that they don’t live to train, they train to live. So, if you want more energy, want to stay fit or boost your immune system, Drakes Gym is the place for you.

Body Composition Analysis for free

Combining 1-2-1 reformer Pilates sessions with gym training is a unique experience that other studios across London do not offer.

To tailor the experience even further, we check your exact body composition with our medical-grade InBody machine. This is vital in understanding your health and weight. This analysis goes deeper than your weight, however. It deconstructs your body into four sections, including water, minerals, fat and mass. This data can then be used to personalise your experience at Drakes Gym and shows which areas you need to target. This analysis is carried out every 4 to 8 weeks to track your progress. It’s also provided to new clients for free.

You will also love the space and the trendy location of Clerkenwell where Drakes Gym is located. We treat you in a professional yet friendly manner. And we aim to build a professional relationship with everyone. You will feel comfortable going to the gym again. Drakes Gym tries to accommodate through open communication.

If you have any questions while at the gym, I will take the time to answer. No loud music is present in the gym. There’s no Instagram selfie corner either. And I appreciate customer loyalty. Especially since some clients have been with me since the gym opened its doors.
